The ‘dark horse’ lurking as Giants decide if a QB is worth it
INDIANAPOLIS To quarterback or not to quarterback, that is the question for the Giants.
Playing lousy enough to lock up the No. 2 pick in a draft is supposed to simplify the situation, but this year, with this team, the scenarios are complicated. The Giants already have their quarterback of the present in Eli Manning and may have one for the future in Davis Webb. There are many holes on the roster in need of immediate plugging, and running back Saquon Barkley, guard Quenton Nelson and, to a lesser extent (given the presence of Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon), defensive end Bradley Chubb would all be tremendous infusions of talent in vital areas.
However, if you don’t love the guy and don’t believe in him with all your heart and soul, Saquon Barkley, if he’s there at two, is the most obvious choice in the draft. He’s special, he’s different, he’s all those things. And then on top of that, as sort of a dark horse, and the hog mollie comes into play, Quenton Nelson in my opinion is one of the two best players in this draft. I think Barkley and Quenton Nelson are the two best football players in this draft.
You’re sitting at number two and you’ve got a bad offensive line. You can talk all you want about the quarterbacks and the wideouts and their running backs, but if you can’t block for ’em, that’s in [Gettleman’s] head, that’s got to be.

As a result, he became closed off and depressed, she added. He didn’t hang out with his friends .?.?. LeBron [James] would invite him over and he just wanted to be at home.
Crowley also struggled to adapt to her new life in suburban Ohio. I was unhappy, Crowley said. I didn’t have someone that made me feel .?.?. like I had a purpose. I was just a baby-sitter.
Crowley admits that the two had been drinking the day of their October 2015 domestic dispute and said that she was intoxicated, but Manziel, who was driving, had probably a little more than two drinks. Not wasted. He wasn’t out of his mind.
