    Maybe this belongs in the draft or post-draft forum. Kiwanuka, according to the NYtimes, had 2 1/2 sacks in a 3 play sequence against the Ravens last night. Too early to judge, but encouraging.

    You are right, 3rd string is third string. But he could have been alot worse. I like his game and his approach, and contrary to what some believe, think he could step in, start immediately and contribute. As much as I dislike Shockey and Beaker the Muppett I may actually root for the Giant defense this season.

    Preseason Game 2 update: a sack on one play, forced fumble on another, a crushing hit, and several excellent pursuit plays. Still ridiculously early, but Kiwi's playing better than any other defensive player in the draft so far. Hopefully we'll see him against the "ones" soon.

    Why is Jackson one of the best? I'm just curious because he's practiced three times so far and hasn't played one NFL game yet.

    I still believe in Jackson, despite the hammy. Granted, I'm going on faith without anything but circumstantial evidence, but if he can get his body healed he is going to be special (in a good way).

    Who cares? I'm sure there are plenty of Giants fansites if you like to regale their players.

    Kiwi is going to be a monster. I hope he's the most dominating defensive player taken in this draft.

    Agree.

    We do have an interleague forum here.

    But, the Giants have always been my #1 hated team so I could be biased.

    You're like that, too, huh?

    Have anything to do with Chris Schenkel?

    PonyExpress, you obviously haven't heard one of my lectures!:D That was a mild rebuke at the worst. I am a long time Big East fan (and still begrudgingly root for BC after their desertion) and I love to see local college boys excel. But this is a site for Patriot love, not for extolling the virtues of a rookie we didn't draft, right? Besides, if Kiwi becomes a star he is an enemy since he doesn't play for us. If the Interleague forum isn't right then maybe you could get Ian to start a forum for local college boy rooting (seriously), there you folks could rant 'til satisfied and folks like me wouldn't have to see one word of it! Perfect for everyone.

    If Ian feels this isn't relevant, he can move it easily to the other forum, just as he does with NEM's insane rantings. So far, he hasn't, so I can't be that far off. Kiwanuka's is of interest because many people felt he would be the perfect replacement for McGinest, he's a local kid, and I labeled the post OT. You are sounding dangerously like a librarian here trying to shush people, not that there's anything wrong with that. Librarians need love too. But we're football fans, man.

    I really hope Kiwi has himself a good career. Last year at BC he was recovering from an injury. Good luck to him.

    I hope he's the SECOND most dominating defensive player in this draft. To Mario of course :)

    In all seriousness, I'm a huge BC fan and wanted the Texans to take Kiwi wayyyyyyy back in last November when I whipped up a mock on the Texans board. I remember the game where BC played NC St late in the season and Kiwi had something like 4.5-5 sacks in the first half. Easily my favorite player coming out of the last draft.
