1) Mushnick: Roger Goodell does a pretty good Selig impersonation. The Giants and Jets are pricing tens of thousands of second- and third-generation ticket holders out of their seats and/or out of new PSL Stadium, and Goodell boasts to ESPN Radio that in bad times, “24 of our 32 teams did not increase ticket prices.” Hooray!
2) Eli and Abby Manning made a donation to start a birthing center at St. Vincent’s in NYC. Nice work.
6) Giants and Eagles amongst the tops in offseason moves for 2009 season. We agree. Implying that Barden is “polished” is getting a little carried away. The additions of guys like Canty and Boley can really make this defense hum. Terrell Thomas started to play well as the season finished up, so if he and/or Phillips goes to the next level … look out. At next week’s minicamp OTA we will learn a lot more about whether any of our offensive rookies have the kind of game to make their presence felt in 2009. Naturally most eyes will be on Nicks.
