    NY Giant Fans

    I got this letter from a relative regarding Christmas shopping for her son. Obviously she's a little paranoid over what happened to Plaxico. I thought I'd base this on the best player who's likely to stay a Giant for the foreseeable future.



    I am going to order an NFL jersey for ****. Which of these Giants players on ****'s wish list would be good, as in a good role model, and not likely to be or to have been arrested?
    Derrick Ward
    Brandon Jacobs
    Ahmad Bradshaw
    Amani Toomer
    Osi Umenyiora

    What do you think? What should I tell her?

    One not on the list, but Eli Manning.

    Only thing you can pin on him was not wanting to play for the Chargers.

    Yeah that was an easy one. He has an Aunt already getting him that jersey.

    In my opinion, of the players listed, Amani Toomer would be the best 'character guy', but her soon might be a little disappointed to have the jersey of an aging #2 receiver.

    Umenyiora.

    Thats if you want the longest term Giant. Either Ward or Jacobs will be around for awhile, but not sure which one. Both are free agents and I think the Giants can only sign one because the other guy is going to want to be a starter (I think Jacobs stays, Ward leaves to try and become this years Michael Turner).

    Bradshaw is awesome, but only for real die-hards like me since he seems destined to be the 00's version of Meggett and/or Tiki Barber circa 1998 (guy they feel can't be an everydown back but they get him 15 touches each week thru returns, receptions and carries).

    Brandon Jacobs would be my bet.
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.

    Osi 4 sure, Ward 2nd if he were gonna stick around. Although I'm no Giants fan.

    Speaking for the son, the Brandon Jacobs jersey is probably most desirable.
