Shockey will once again work out in Miami. Maybe he can can Jason Giambi and borrow that golden thong! I understand they are widely used down there in Miami!

Shockey, look at your paycheck and see if you are wanted. Time to grow up beyond the pampered sports star mentality. If you don't want to play with the Super Bowl champion Giants, move on.

"Pope speculated that most of Shockey's frustrations stem from being sidelined during the championship dash."

Of course. Add that up with a little "under the table" grumbling that Eli was better without him, and the guy cried in his beer and wanted to leave.
Immature? Sure. Forgivable? Absolutely.
Giants were not going to GIVE Shockey away. He's an important part of that offense, whether the fans or he himself believes it or not. Is he the best TE in the NFL? Probably not. I'm thinking top 5, definitely. He's a keeper.
Who knows? Maybe he'll even be out to prove something.
All this locker room nonsense will disappear once they are playing again.

hopefully, this will be the wake up call so needed by shockey. time for him to settle down, and grow up. just play the game that you are being paid for. cut out all that nonsense on the field. otherwise....get lost!

There are 4 things Shockey can do to smooth things over ... grow up, shut up, do as he's told, and play hard. Simple as that.

If he tried catching the ball with his big mouth he would have alot less dropped passes. Believe me he is replacable.

move SHockey, and retain KEvin Boss as starting TE. he's what the Giants offense calls for. a big physical blocker that likes to hit, block and occasionally catch the ball. Shockey thinks of himself as a receiver, and wants the ball 20+ times a game. there's no room on this or any other team for a player that pouts and stamps his feet in a tantrum when he doesnt get the ball thrown to him.
enuf is enuf...they have and can win without him. let him go somewhere where he'll be happy and the G's can get something in retunr to make them happy.

What the hell is wrong with you idiots? Shockey didnt say or do anything wrong this whole season but everybody still continues to write that he needs to grow up. I think the fans that plague these forums are the ones who need to grow up. You people are BORING. Think of something else to write for once.

hey morons, shockey has never even said he was unhappy. this is all a media creation. and Boss is 1/10 the blocker that shockey is. apparently you idiots didnt see him get blown off the line everytime he tried to block.

What is he mad about? That they won the Super Bowl without him? What were they supposed to do, lose so they don't hurt his feelings?

Look, The Giants are the Champs because of Shockey. He made all the catches to get them thee. Boss did what he was supposed to do. Jeremy is an inspiration to all Rookies. The man should be recognized. He should also put his ring on, look at it, and go get another one. 07 is over. Time for Big Blue to do it again. Dallas Sux!!!!!
