New York Giants: Shockey Must Go!

John LewisSenior Writer IMarch 5, 2008

For weeks now, the New York Giants have been saying they're still going to keep Jeremy Shockey, aka Locker Room Cancer, because of his talent.

As I've written before, it's certainly odd that the Giants played their best football with Shockey out of the lineup. 

There's no question that Shockey is one of the best tight ends in the league, but in a game where sheer stats don't tell the entire story, teams are better off without players that scream for the ball every time.

The G-Men have Kevin Boss, who was a rookie this year, to fill Shockey's shoes. Boss filled in nicely and while he didn't post great numbers, he scored touchdowns in the last two games of the season. But most importantly, he played within the team concept.    

Plus, by trading Shockey, the Super Bowl champs could get a lot in return...draft picks, salary cap room, etc.
