Looking at their moves individually:

-Barkley - generational talent, USC QBs tend not to pan out, fine, good.
-Collins - bit of an undersized linebacker, not a coverage guy, tackled a ton of people because no one else did. Not worth 11 mil, but get a pick for the guy.
-OBJ - mental case, didn't win with him, misses a fair amount of time, won't be getting any better or more mature. NYG did better than the Steelers fwiw in WR trades, but still...
-Jones - would've been there at 17. Haskins - hard to tell, his team has far better talent and coaching than their opponents, really helps his stat machine.

Not sure who is gonna tackle anyone next year.

There's a bit more to that - Apple had his issues and they weren't going to pay Collins. Everyone gets replaced.
That’s fine. How are we going to get better?

Also, *everyone* has issues.

They need to clean house and bottom out. We’re in a bad spot right now.

Great pick by the giants. Love was a 2nd round pick by Espn. To get him in the 4th is value.

I've watched Julian Love play a lot. He seems like a steal in the 4th round. That semi against Clemson completely turned when he got dinged and left the game for a quarter or so.

I was a NYG fan as a kid. Del Shofner, Jim Patton, Alex Webster and Sam Huff were my favorites. But really, you guys have got to retire this thread and get on board with the rebuild effort.

I need you to go start a ‘I apologize, Kaiser was right, AGAIN’ thread...regarding my annual spot on talent evaluation of the Oranges pro-prospects this past weekend.

Ballentine was injured in a shooting last night, in which one of his teammates was killed. Ballentine is expected to make a full recovery.
