I was recently looking back at a few articles from training camp, I couldn't help but notice how wrong everyone of them was. Sinorice Moss, Mr. August, has been a bust and then some.

So far this season he has one catch for 18 yards and a touchdown. It was much earlier this season I can assure you. Hakeem Nicks has emerged as Eli's big play guy, and Smith and Manningham have been extremely active too.

Smith now leads the all time Giant's recievrs list with most single season franchise receptions. Apparently Amani, in big brother fashion, gave a pair of hand-me-down shoes to Steve and what do you know...they fit perfectly.

Boss has also had an increased roll in the passing game, but where is this hot shot Mr. August? Everyone raved, including me, all off-season about the type of work he was doing.

It was finally his break out season, and he got cold feet. He hasn't had a catch since the third game of the season, and he hasn't seen the Field since the first Eagles-Giants game. This fourth year player out of Miami has nearly as many career fumbles (two) as he does touchdowns (three).

I suppose the really disappointing thing is we all saw a hero emerging, but maybe while changing into his costume the telephone both door got jammed. (I always wondered if that ever happened to Super Man, but he would probably just smash through it.)

So we move on to Nicks and Smith who seem to be the future, Moss is the past.

I would not be surprised if he was cut to make some roster room at the end of the season. Remember the Giants already have, Smith, Nicks, Hixon, Barden, Hagen, and Manningham. All of which have significantly higher numbers then Moss.

Not to mention Boss, Beckum, Bradshaw, Darcy Johnson, Hedgecock, and Jacobs all have better receiving stats. The only person with worse stats then Moss? Danny (D.J.) Ware with one reception and negative four yards.

The Giants have many more concerns than Moss, expect him to be let go.

Where can I comment?
