    Wow Sims, ARob and Iowas Sash all to the Giants to join Sage there. The state of Iowa is well represented on the Giants team.

    Very Nice! I hope everything works out and we see him and Sims playing on Sundays. As other have said, I'm going to have to start liking the Giants.

    A-Rob did NOT sign with giants. He got offered the opportunity to try out for them (per A-Robs twitter.)

    Regardless, I think he would stand a solid chance of making it. He's a good back, his only problem has been health. But in a guy like him, the Giants wouldn't be looking for a feature back anyway, so his health wouldn't be as big of a concern.

    Marquis Hamilton had a tryout with the Vikes and made it all the way to the last cut. Uphill battle for sure, though.

    The problem with ARob is that he's small and doesn't have top end speed. He was a productive college back when healthy, but in the pros, he's not an every down back and he doesn't have the speed or elusiveness to be a 3rd down back. He doesn't really have a position in the NFL. ARob does a lot of things well, but nothing great. For an NFL 3rd down or change of pace back, you want someone like Noel from WVU who can flat out fly. I wish him well, but I don't think he has much of a chance.

    Yeah, ARob's best attributes are his intelligence & his work ethic. He's a good athlete, but not world class. That said, he knows the game inside & out and isn't going to **** a play up. If he can catch on with the Giant's special teams unit, he could be an asset. If ARob was on the field last year, do you really think he would have let this happen?

    Wish him the best of luck, he is a true Clone. Hope he goes somewhere else though, I will not bring myself to cheer for the Little Giants.
