Kerry Collins will not win two Super Bowls like Eli Manning did

You ask, we answer. The Post raises questions from readers about the largest pro sports team in New York and asks our authors to answer them in a series of regularly published letter bags. In installments today: Giants.

What do you think would have happened in 2004 if the Giants didn’t get Eli Manning and were stuck with Kerry Collins? Who will they arrange and do you think they will still (win the Super Bowl)? – Ian Michael

Wow this is interesting. I covered the Giants in 2004, and I’m not entirely on “getting Eli Manning in whatever way it takes” the bandwagon. I am not alone. The owner and patriarch of the team, Wellington Mara, really likes Kerry Collins and wants him to remain as a quarterback. He must be persuaded to let him go and convince trading with the Chargers to get Manning is the way to go. Ernie Accorsi will take the quarterback that year. He loved Eli and really liked Ben Roethlisberger. Accortion is not as high as in Philip Rivers.

If an agreement cannot be made on draft day with Chargers, Accorsi will sit at No. 4 and take Roethlisberger. Sean Taylor, big security from Miami, went to No. 5 to the Redskins. He will be a phenomenal choice, but the Giants are all-in with the quarterback. According to Mara, associating with Collins and choosing to tackle Robert Gallery from Iowa is a wise move. Gallery goes to No. 2 to the Raiders and is a big disappointment. Collins is a real marksman and he certainly has a lot left in the tank and the big right arm. Did the Giants win two Super Bowls with him instead of Manning? I doubt that.

The last time the Giants defeated Cowboys or Eagles was in 2016. Can they finally beat both teams this year? – Ricardo Gordon

They must. That is the bottom line. The first step towards relevance in the NFL is finding success in your own division. The Giants have seven successive defeats for the Eagles and six consecutive defeats for the Cowboy. This is not acceptable. Heading into the 2020 season, there is no doubt that the Cowboys and Eagles are more valued than the Giants and they will be chosen 1-2 on NFC East, in one order or another, by most prognosticators. Pat Shurmur could not find a way in two years to defeat one of these Giants rivals. That is the task that awaits Joe Hakim. I predict he will not be 0-4 against these teams this season.

Can anyone explain what happened to Hakeem Nicks? Victor Cruz has star power in the last Super Bowl team, but in my opinion, Nicks is the best WR we have. But then he only dived after SB and immediately left the league. – Alex

Submit your Giants questions here to be answered in a future Post mail bag

It’s hard to believe Hakeem Nicks is only 32 years old. He can still play, hauling bait with his big hands. Instead, he has been out of the league since 2015. What happened to him was that his lower body was destroyed. In the span of two years Nicks had 155 receptions for 2,244 yards and 18 goals. He is at any time, as a choice of the first round, recipient No. 1 that the Giants dreamed of.

Nicks underwent leg surgery before the 2012 season and in the second match of the year, he bent his knee when he won in Tampa. Amazingly, he was never the same after that. He dealt with other foot problems, lost his explosive power and struggled to compensate for the loss. He only lasted another year with the Giants, unimpressive in a season with the Colts and returned to the Giants in 2015 as a shell from himself before. His body surrendered to him. He just can’t run like before.

Has injury been the reason for playing Nate Solder which has been rather mediocre over the past two years, and if so, what injuries and are they still affecting him? – George Josiban

Nate Solder hasn’t missed a match in two years with the Giants and started all 16 matches for the Patriots in 2017. Yes, he really slammed in 2018, but he never missed the start. Yes, he was forced out of the Sunday 10 match last season against the Jets with a concussion but he started the next match. So, injury is not the reason why Solder’s performance isn’t good enough – a fact he explains whenever he is asked why or why for his game.

There is no doubt that the Giants did not get nearly enough for their $ 62 million investment they spent to make Solder (at the time) the highest paid offensive midfielder in NFL history. He is a great dressing room man, reliable and professional and very popular with his teammates and coaching staff. It did not help him that when he arrived at the Giants he was asked to break down a rookie left guard, Will Hernandez. Solder sometimes had to concentrate on making sure Hernandez knew what he was doing and that was hurting his own game. Solder is 32 years old and the Giants take his eventual successor, Andrew Thomas, in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. For at least another year, Solder can play left tackle, with Thomas possibly starting with right tackle.

Eternal Portuguese deja vu – Renaissance

Published

Eternal Portuguese deja vu - Renaissance

At the end of the summer of 1972, exactly half a century ago, SEDES – Associação para o Desenvolvimento Económico e Social (the most famous reformist think tank during Marseilles) issued a document for the country entitled “Portugal: The country we are, the country we want to be “. The Marseille spring had already turned into autumn: Américo Thomas had just been re-elected, the colonial war had dragged on, repression had intensified, and an economic crisis was already brewing. Seeing the general frustration, and at the same time willing to go against it, the signatories of CEDES began by asking “Where will we be and how will we be in 1980?” to criticize the obstacles that overshadowed Portugal in the early 1970s.

Among the “problems that are getting worse without a solution”, emigration stood out, indicating the country’s inability to offer better living and working conditions to those who left; the growing inflationary process, reflected in the cost of living; the inevitability of economic integration in Europe when the country is not ready for international commercial competition; “disaggregation of regional economies” with “continuous depopulation of municipalities and regions” within the country; or “deterioration of public administration” when the government fails to promote a “prestigious, moralized, revitalized and efficient public sector”. “No one will have any difficulty,” continued the text, “to add to a new list of urgent questions that seriously endanger national life, about which much has been said and which, year after year, continue to wait for a sufficient solution.” Therefore, “the prevailing feeling in the country” in contemplation of the recent past and present could not but be “annoyance at urgent battles, the need for which was endlessly discussed, at decisions that were changed or postponed, and at rejected goals” or which were not clearly formulated ” .

Between “untapped resources” and/or “lack of organizational and decision-making capacity” there was “widespread anxiety” stemming from the inevitable observation that “we are very far from the results that we could achieve thanks to the progress of the Portuguese and Portugal”. This was the macro goal of the reformist, humanist and liberalizing technocrats that SEDES brought together. “Ultimately,” they reminded Marcelo Cayetano, “the real obstacle can only be associated with the low political priority of economic and social development in our country.” So, in short, there was an urgent need to “radically change our economic, social and political way of life”, since “a national balance based on general anemia, repression and weakening of various participants” is unsustainable and pernicious.

SEDES did not know that the Estado Novo would fall in April 1974, that democracy would come in 1976, and Europe from the EEC (after EFTA) in 1986 of repression, finally gained the freedom that was discussed between the lines of the 1972 manifesto ., there would be conditions for solving (almost) all economic and social problems of development and cohesion.

Fifty years have passed since this manifesto, and almost the same number has already been in democracy. However, if we compare the above quotes with the Portuguese present, the feeling of deja vu is indescribable. SEDES wondered what the country would be like in 1980 and is wondering today (in its recent study “Ambition: Doubling GDP in 20 Years”) where we will be in 2040. It may be a replay of a sad fate: knowing (some) where to go, but never getting there!
