Not worried about replacing them. wmuccone1, DeAngelo Hall can't replace Gibril Wilson. Hall is a CB and Wilson is a safety.

OK, first off although the Colts are by far my favorite sports team. I still like the Giants because of Eli Manning. I was so happy to see them kick the Patriots ass in the last super bowl. I hate the Pats more then any other team and here in the mid west I'll admit we got a few Giants fans and lots of Manning fans. But it is extreemly, extreemly rare to find a Pats fan round here.

But keep in mind that Kawika Mitchell signed with the Bills, the one team that has a shot at knocking the Pats out of the playoffs by winning their devision. So I dunno about you, but I for one am all for Kawika Mitchell doing good because it would be nice to for once finally see the Pats dynasty be OFFICIALLY OVER. And Giants fans be right when they called the team 18 and DONE.

And for the record, I could care less about the other 2 stuges. As far as I'm concerned their teams won't be doing shit for a while. And I am all for Strayhann coming back to the Giants.

like i try to tell young fans just root for the team and their uniform because this is a business and players move around. good luck to these players and thanks for being a part of this championship season
Yeah, I know what you mean. The last 4 years in free agency 3 out of those 4 years, my team the Colts had double digit free agent losses. But you know what Manning, Polian, and Dungy still worked their magic and took the team to the playoffs. So Giants fans, don't stop believing (a message from one Manning fan to another) Reese, Manning, Spagnola, and Cofflin will work their magic just like Dungy, Peyton, and Polian and get make every thing pan out. Just wait till next season.


A.since 04 they haven't lost more then 7 guys to free agency in one year.

B.They have like 20 guys who are free agents this season (not counting the ones already released).

C.NFL Networks has already named then the "biggest losers in free agency".

And on my final note, the Colts (not counting Booger & Morris, since they were out most of last season) only have like 5 free agent guys left. And NFL networks has already said that the Giants losing these guys won't hurt your team that much next season. The Giants are still a good team, look on the positive side of things coming from one Manning fan to another Mathias Kewineaku will be back.

Not to worry. Who thought the G-men would get this far last season! Reese has the ability to put another good team together. Maybe another Duel in the Desert in 2012.

Can't believe you would leave the SuperBowl Champs that quickly. I am sorry to see them go but the Giants will be ok!
