Meh....we needed a WR but I've read several articles saying he is a terrible route runner and never really knew the playbook. Maybe these things can be fixed.

I live in NJ and am friends with a lot of Giants fan plus also hear all the local sports talk over here. Maningham is avg at best. He disappears for games and drops passes. Not sure he is even as good as Morgan. Giants fans here could care less that he is gone. Not excited about this at all but I guess we needed a WR.

He disappears for games? I had him in fantasy and he was consistent when healthy. If anything Manning looked to him less because of cruz but he was still fantastic when he did get his chances.

yeah manningham is inconsistent and i believe benefited by having cruz and nicks but a 2 yr deal for a young wr who can still get better is a great deal. but he has made huge plays and can cause problems for other teams
Manningham has shown the flashes when given his opportunity. I am excited for a Crabtree/Moss/Manningham trio. Either way you look at it, this is an upgrade over Crabtree/Williams/Swain.

Gotta say, the 2nd Eli pick where Manningham stopped his route rather than running it through is a bit concerning. Communication issues will kill an offense.

But, yeah, Harbaugh will get that taken care of.

He only disppeared at times because they were working with Nicks, Cruz, and Manningham.

Three guys, one cup.
not too excited about this signing to be honest

i think eli manning makes his WRs look better than they are...

Im a little bit skeptical Alex Smith will be great at the deep ball for small nifty receivers, (often overthrowing kyle williams or ginn deep)

Smith need big targets (i.e. vernon)
Wow! I go to get my drink on just after reading he was in negotiations with the Lambs and come back to find out he's a Niner! Thats a good night of drinking!

The new Super Mario!
Win-win situation! Whoever is this teams QB next season... Pay-a-ton, Alex or Kaep gonna have a lot of TOYS 2 play with!!!! Hee hee!

Wait, who said Smith would be throwing him the ball???
All we need is number 18... Manning come on down!
Best part about it?

(Not that our defense really needed it) More Incite to the NY Giant offense.



Harbaugh/Balke, you have outdone yourself.

though i'm all for signing peyton... odds are in the favor of smith coming back IMHO, unless niners revoked the 3 year contract already offered to smith..
