David Baas

It's official. The Giants have announced they have released C David Baas. He has been classified as "waived/failed physical" as he continues to battle back from multiple injuries. Baas' salary cap hit the next two seasons were also a huge factor in his release.

[sny-accordion title="Giants official release on Baas"]EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. ? If David Baas had his druthers, he?d be preparing for his 10th NFL season and fourth with the Giants.

?I haven?t lost that drive, I haven?t lost that desire to play football,? Baas said from his home in Florida. ?But sometimes other things are more important, and we?ve come to that crossroads. The thing that takes precedence right now is my health.?

C David Baas' Giant career has been an injury-riddled one.

In 2011, the Giants signed free agent David Baas to a 5-year, $27.5 million deal to replace their Pro Bowl center Shaun O'Hara, who they released after a series of injuries.

The Giants went on to win the Super Bowl with Baas at center that year, but his tenure here with the Blue has been spotty, never really forming a solid rapport with QB Eli Manning and constantly having his name listed on the team's weekly injury report.

As the Giants and Niners gear up for what has developed into a classic East Coast-West Coast battle, there has been plenty of back and forth between the two NFC squads.

Carlos Rogers is threatening to perform Victor Cruz's salsa. Jim Harbaugh is taking jabs at the Giants' coaching staff.

But how about what's going to take place on the field. Here's three key match-ups to watch for:

Trent Richardson v. Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora

No, I didn?t put this match-up on the list because of the war of words earlier in the week between Richardson and Umenyiora. The spotlight is not on candy right here.

When LeSean McCoy punctured the Giants defense for 123 yards last week, most of his damage was done when rushing toward the edges. With the Giants? defensive ends looking to pressure the quarterback, running lanes are created due to over-penetration.

The Giants had one of the league?s most prolific offenses last season, ranking ninth in points per game (24.6), fifth in pass yards per game (295.9) and eighth in total yards per game (385.1). These metrics are impressive, but let us not ignore Big Blue?s putrid rushing yards per game average (82.1), good for last in all of football.

The departure of Brandon Jacobs?and his accompanying 152 carries and 571 rushing yards?to the San Francisco 49ers only figured to further debilitate an already feeble ground game, leaving the Giants in danger of reclaiming their spot as the league?s worst rushing team. Help arrived at approximately 11:30 p.m. Thursday night in the form of 5-foot-9, 205-pound running back David Wilson, a shifty speedster from Virginia Tech who immediately slides into the No. 2 spot on the Giants running back depth chart.

The NY Giants offensive woes continue.

Before kick off on Sunday the New York Giants ranked #13 in passing offense; however 3rd in the their own division.?? The rushing offense gets worse.?? The Giants were ranked 24th in the NFL and 3rd in the NFC East.? After Sunday's loss to Seattle running the ball continues to be a problem.

The tough, durable and productive offensive line that the Giants have had since 2005 has all but disappeared.? Ahmad Bradshaw the featured back in the Giants? offense has not had a 100 yard rushing game this season and only 1 game over 60 yards.

I hope the all Giants fans "read between the lines" on the Jerry Reese recent press conference.? Back Off, I know what I'm doing...would be the theme.

Now, with that said lets all raise a pint to Jerry Reese and laugh at some of the comments he thinks we should believe. Roll the highlights...

1. "We had a game plan and we are sticking to our game plan" - So what plan would that be?? Loosing 3 out of 5 of our top Free Agents and ignore anyone on the open market that might make this team better?

The new CBA, unanimously ratified this past Monday by the players and owners, has resulted in a flurry of free agent signings and trades that have created an unprecedented onslaught of movement the NFL has never experienced. Across the board, general managers have been forced to part ways with veterans previously deemed inexposable, in an effort to shrink salary cap space and rapidly prepare their teams for the upcoming season via this shortened offseason.

For the Giants, locker room favorites Shaun O'Hara and Rich Seubert found themselves on the wrong end of this movement, as the Giants were forced to cut cap space in an effort to try and retain young talent while also evaluating the deep free agent pool created by the new labor agreement. (..more)
