View Full Version : Giants interested in RB McGahee?

New York Giants GM Jerry Reese just spoke at the podium here at the combine and said they do have some trade offers out there when talking about the need to add a running back following Tiki Barber's retirement.

He later said, "There is Willis McGahee talk, but we are looking at everybody. If the right guy is out there, we'll address it."

Verrry interesting. Considering how well Willis has performed the times he has played at the Meadowlands against the Jets, perhaps his stock is higher in New York than it might be in some other NFL cities.

please take him Giants. i dont like a Hurricane RB in the AFC East..hes kinda dangerous.

im a big fan of McGahee..if he can get out of Buffalo to a place with a better OL and better offensive team itd be good. also being a Patriot fan, i dont like being against Willis twice a yr

Mcgahee isn't really all that great of a runningback. He's alright and he'll have a big game every now and then, but I certainly wouldn't put him in the upper echelon of NFL runningbacks. Last year he went over 100 yards only twice.

Of course both of those happened to come against the Jets. I honestly have no idea how he can be so average for the vast majority of the season and destroy the Jets everytime he plays them.

Hm. I didnt kno McGahee was available for trades....

I wouldn't mind the Broncos pursuing him either. he's a talented RB who has been hindered by a horrible OL.

Not sure if I like this. Im tired of all the diva attitudes in Giant uniforms. Do we really need another one? This is not the right direction for our franchise.

We need to fill our roster with high character blue collar team oriented guys, those are the guys we need. We have too many loud mouths as is. Im not sure if this will work.

What are you on?!

He's a top 10 running back in the league. Maybe not one of the best, but certainly better than Brandon Jacobs. He's proven nothing other than he can pound the ball near the goaline.

I live in toronto and i get to see many bills games. Mcgahee is nothing special and hasnt really proven a whole lot except when he faces the jets.

I cant imagine his trade value being any higher than a 3rd, and thats for potential more IMO.

Same division. I doubt Buffalo would want to send McGahee to the Jets and then have to face him twice a year.

That's why it will be interesting 1-2 punch. I'd give Jacobs more carries, but use Willis alot as well. I think that would be a pretty sick or potentially pretty sick duo.

While I love him destroying the Jets, it's not worth it to have only two good games a year.

If this move happens, I think it's much later in the process. Simply put, I can't see them not having a RB lined up, or not knowing the draft grades for Peterson and Lynch before they pull the trigger. That is, they have to have a plan in place to move Willis. If they sign a FA RB (but there isn't much ... and Rhodes DUI makes him an unlikely option for Ralph, IMO) or make a move up ... there's no guarantee Lynch or Peterson will be there for them.

Btw, I think Willis will likely cost a 2nd.

It is well documented that I am not a McGahee fan. However, I agree that the Bills will not pull the trigger unless another RB is in place. But once that is taken care of, I would be happy if willis is out of buffalo.

I don't see them taking anything day 2. I'll be surprised if they pull a deal without getting a day 1 pick in return, and McGahee is deserving of a day 1 pick.

If Corey Dillon was worth a 2nd rounder as a 7th year player, McGahee is worth that easily as a 4th year (3 years starting)

Never gonna ******* happen. If Reese doesn't want to give up a first day pick, he's not going to get a running back of any notoriety. Expect Brandon Jacobs to be the primary carrier with an unknown rookie or a street free agent backing him up.

I dont understand why people throughout the league think Mcgahee is a top ten running back. He isnt even as good as Willie Parker. He has one outstanding year in the three that he has been with the Bills, but thats it. You can only blame so much on the o-line here, especially when A-Train came in and ran for two straight one hundred yard games when Willis was out this year. He shows up twice a year to kill the Jets and thats it. I cant wait until he is out of here, Im so sick of watching Dancing With the Stars everytime he gets the ball.

He is a GREAT RB.

The problem is he is only great when he WANTS TO PLAY. And he hasnt really wanted to play in Buffalo for a bit.

He was REALLY good when he was fighting for playing time against Travis Henry in his first starting years with 13 TDs... I remember him running down the sideline and hurdling a defensive player for a 60 yard TD that was called back because of a holding penalty on Lee Evans that was on the way other side of the play.

He also is GREAT against the Jets cause his buddy is Jonathan Vilma, and he loves showing him up during those games.

But he doesnt like Buffalo, and he has wanted out for sometime.

Take a look at this.. It will really piss off Bills fans.
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=jc-combinenotes022407&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

McGahee didn’t spend any time in Buffalo last offseason learning the new playbook under coach Dick Jauron. The Bills are expecting more of the same this offseason.

"Willis literally didn't know what to do on the plays," a source said. "After the play was called, we'd have another coach signaling to Willis what to do because he didn't know. He'd miss blocks (in pass protection) a few times, not because he was beat, but because he didn't know what he was doing.

"He just doesn't study … His teammates noticed it and it affected how they viewed him in the locker room."

He will do well with a new team. And a team that gets his face out there in the market place like NYC will keep him playing hard at all times!!

Good point on McGee, but we can't let him have 32 either because we're still trying to change KO-J Simpson's number to 32.

I have no problem moving him. He only ever tries against the jets because he needs to show up his old college buddy vilma. He publicly stated he wants the bills to move because buffalo is boring (so now the fans hate him), and of course, he is an irresponsible jerk. HE has 4 babbies with 4 women, and all 4 of them had to sue him just so he would pay child support. O, and if he goes to the giants, I wouldn't be surprised if within a year he wants them moved to manhatten because jersey is too boring.

I would love the bills to ship him off to the browns, do they need a RB? Even if we got less of a pick, it'd be worth it because he'd move from one small city to another. :lol:

They should be interested. They don't have much for a RB and a McGahee/Jacobs combo could work out well.

MGahee will likley be traded because during the season word broke that he is just trying to play out his contract w/o injury then he'll leave.

Jughead10
02-26-2007, 08:18 AM
McGahee's value will come to whether or not the team trading for him can reach and extension. If the Giants trade for him without reaching a contrac extension he isn't worth a first day pick. However if the Giants lock him up for 4 years along with the trade, then he is. Regardless I don't want him. I have said I'd like to stay away from these Miami players. Too many headcases.

I think that is about where his value is. I think a 4th rounder in 2007 and then a 3rd rounder in 2008 if he is signed long term is just about enough to get it done. Maybe a throw in player a long with that as well.
