NY Giants say "Pick a Jersey Number, Rookie"

Posted on: April 26, 2010 11:40 am
 

The first draft class of the New Meadowlands stadium is currently settling in. What a treat for these young players to end up in a situation where the team has brand new state of the art equipment and facilities. These kids today, I’ll tell yaahh! While they were settling in, someone came up to them and said, hey rookie, pick a jersey number. If the number is available, they will get it, if not, then they won’t. Some of them were lucky enough to get the same numbers they wore in college, something I’m told is like a link on a chain to some players. It is extremely important to some and doesn’t mean anything to others.

Let’s take a look at what jersey numbers were selected. I will list the rookie players below in the same order in which they were drafted over the weekend during the 2010 NFL Draft.

Round 1 – DE Jason “Wild Thing” Pierre-Paul will wear No. 90

Round 2 – DT Linval Joseph will wear No. 97

Round 3 – S Chad Jones will wear No. 35

Round 4 – LB Phillip Dillard will wear No. 55

Round 5 – OG Mitch Petrus will wear No. 62

Round 6 – LB/DE Adrian Tracy will wear No. 98

Round 7 – P Matt Dodge will wear No. 6

Do you own any authentic New York Giants jersey’s or any kind of NFL jersey at all? What players did you get?

Giantsr1eva-
Mock, Patsrule213 told me what I said to you. I didn't know because on the day that I wrote what I wrote, I had a dental apointment, and they found a cavity, so I was gassed up on whatever they use. So, honestly I didn't know that I hurt you really bad, and after reading what I wrote, I wouldn't blame you for kicking us out and removing us as friends on this website. If someone told me that they were starting a group and taking all my members away and they were banning me from it, I wouldn't want to see that person ever again.
But Mock, honestly, I didn't mean it. Maybe I should stop having dental appointments on April 1st every year. And I should remember to brush my teeth every day, so I don't get gassed up and do things that I have regretted and will regret.

I just wanted you to know the truth. I probably made you so mad that you won't even read what I am writing. You will probably just remove it right away, and I don't blame you.

Can you at least find it in your heart to respond to what I am writing, even if you think that I am not telling the truth, which I am?

Try to add me as a friend in another week or so I guess.We never deleted you, you deleted us.


I sent them a "help message" saying that I cannot add any more friends and that other CBS Sports members cannot add me either. I'm not sure why they haven't taken care of it by now. I will send another help message to CBS Sports right now.Giantsr1eva-
Can you put in a good word about me coming back to this website?

I agree with you about having limits on members, what's the point then?That happened to me while I was playing Starcraft. People got mad at me because I was over the friend limit and I couldn't add those people as friends. That upset them and me also, so I disagree with you on this issue, people should be able to have as many friends as they want on a website.

Hey Guys, I have been contacting CBS Sports since last week about this. I sent them a "help message" saying that I cannot add any more friends and that other CBS Sports members cannot add me either. I'm not sure why they haven't taken care of it by now. I will send another help message to CBS Sports right now. I agree with you about having limits on members, what's the point then? I can't have a pre-cog session and know who I am going to want to add in the future. Try to add me as a friend in another week or so I guess. Thanks for your patience guys.

It keeps giving me the dumb error message  "try to remove some of your favorite before adding....." .  Why the hell should I remove ANY of my favorites just to add someone else.  Since when is they a max number of favorite members you can have?  Never was before.

These are the NFL jerseys that Giantsr1eva and I own.
I will start, I have owned a few of them

Tom Brady, home and away, Corey Dillion, Randy Moss, Laurence Maroney, and Rodney Harrison.

Giantsr1eva-
Well, since I always see my best friend Patsrule213 in a quarterback or wide reciever jersey, I went with these 2 players
Eli Manning and Steve Smith (from the Giants)
Why Steve Smith? It is because there is a character on American Dad, (the same creator as Family Guy, but they are actually 2 different shows with the same type of humor, called Steve Smith, so I picked out his jersey.

I really hope that you can't re-add us as friends because of this CBS glitch that has been going on with adding people. Patsrule has no problem adding friends to his list so it is hard to understand why everyone is having trouble.

I'm not much into Jerseys.  Don't see the point in investing in one when your favorite player can be traded someday.  But, if I was going to buy one, I'd wear a #88 jersey (Hakeem Nicks).  I'd wear a #97 jersey as well if this kid Linval Joseph turns out to be as good as I hope he can be.  Same goes for #62 (Matt Petra). 

By the way, I STILL can't add you as a favorite.  CBS - what's going on with favorites?  If you're going to but a cap on how many people we can add, what's the point of it?
