Daily Debate: How Much Does Losing Steve Smith Hurt The Giants & Help the Eagles?

The Philadelphia Eagles continued their winning offseason ways by signing wide receiver Steve Smith to a one-year deal.  This move not only strengthens the Eagles wide receiving core, but it weakens the wide receiving core of their division rival New York Giants.  How much does losing Steve Smith hurt the Giants and help the Eagles?

Smith played for the Giants for four years, from 2007 to 2010.  He had 220 receptions for 2,386 yards and 11 touchdowns as a Giant.  Smith made the Pro Bowl in 2009, the best season of his career,  when he posted a New York Giants franchise-record 107 receptions for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns.  Last season he played only nine games because of a season-ending left knee injury December 13, 2010.

    As a long term Eagles guy. This provides depth. And gives the Eagles 4 solid receivers. Keeps the guys fresh, injury insurance. And helps Eagles defense with understanding Giants offense. Maybe Coughlin knows more to Smith’s injury. Otherwise, the Giants prepare for lottery draft pick next season.

  2. Do you think the Giants will be that bad this season?

  3. Al says:

    Not the worst team. But shut out of the playoffs.

  4. That’s a tough loss, now the Giants don’t have many options at wide receiver. That will cost them a game or two. Im guessing NYG will end up 8-8
