Default I WISH WE HAD BRANDON JACOBS

I have been watching him since the season started,.... he is 6' 4" 260 Can you imagine him in black and gold running North and South ?

The Giants are lucky to have him...

Could we have drafted him?

ATLANTA DAN.... tell me the answers!

Yes the Steelers had a chance to draft him and he was one of my sleepers in the 2005 NFL draft. He started out at Auburn and was behind Caddie Williams and Ronnie Brown. He then transferred to Southern Illinois and starred there. Was a 3rd or 4th round pick if I remember correctly. Jacobs would be the perfect power back for the Steelers and make a really good combo with Willie Parker.

Thanks for the info .......even though the info disappoints me we missed him... He's a NY GIANT and we can't change that..... but we could improve our OF LINE....STEELERS football is passing it 20 times and running it 45 times...

Even though we won't go to the playoffs, I'm going to say "HERE WE GO STEELERS , HERE WE GO ".........

Yep - same here. Doesn't change the fact that he's gone and he's not coming back. We have to try to win with the players we have. I'm also tired of the "big back" threads - look around the NFL and tell me if there is a "big back" at the present that could carry the Bus' jock? Good luck finding something that isn't there.

i dont think our new head coach will be as devoted to "the big back" as cowher was. (foster, bam, bettis, staley)

as far as finding the next greatest "big back" i throw 2 names at you. c. humes and j. kuhn. (bettis was a top draft pick)

and the giants have struck out when trying to draft "thunder" in the 1st round (ron dayne).

I kind of like how Davenport has played so far - I do wish they'd work him into the offense a bit more than they have.

No doubt - I also think they've continued to seriously underutilize Heath. It seems like every time that kid gets the ball in his hands, good things happen for us.
