Toomer talks Shockey, Giants

On Thursday morning, a report surfaced that tight end Jeremy Shockey would like to return to the Giants.  Former Giants receiver Amani Toomer responded by indicating that the Giants probably don’t feel the same way.

Toomer, who explained during Super Bowl week that Shockey hampered the development of Eli Manning by constantly demanding the ball, called Shockey on Twitter a “bad teammate” and a “worse person.”

Toomer joined PFT Live to discuss his views and the Twitter fight that followed.  Toomer also offered up his thoughts on whether Big Blue should give the even bigger green to Mario Manningham now and Victor Cruz later.

  1. The last thing Eli wants is his old tight end, who verbally assaulted him every summer through the media, while surfacing pictures of himself doing bong hits at the Jersey Shore and Vegas.

    There’s a new #80 in Big Blue – we don’t miss the old #80.

  2. Not at all a terrible idea. As much as I like Cruz, I’d be wary of the Giants giving him a huge deal based on 1 great season. Manningham has been mostly solid since he got there and has proven himself a bit more. VC will no doubt see a lot more double coverage next season, just as he did after scoring his TD in the Super Bowl. He sort of vanished after that TD. Not that it mattered, because it opened things up for Nicks and ‘Rio, but it may have been a telltale sign to consider when discussing a possible big money deal for Cruz.

  3. It’s hard to justify making fun of the Giants after they just won the Superbowl, but with characters like Tiki, Eli, Plax, Toomer around your organization it’s just to easy not to..

    …Not quite sure how Eli fits in that category, can you explain to me what you can make fun of him about?…Keep hating, he’ll keep WINNING

    I said “characters” not performance. Tiki was a great player, so was plax.
