New York Giants’ Geoff Schwartz Appears on ESPN’s Highly Questionable: Video

On Thursday afternoon, New York Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz made some media rounds and eventually found himself on ESPN's "Highly Questionable." If you've never watched that show before, you should. It's a little off-the-wall, but highly entertaining and Schwartz fit right in.

As Giants fans try to identify with their new guard, media appearances like this are certain to help — especially when you see the sort of fun-loving, quirky person Schwartz is. He's right in line with guys like Eli Manning and Steve Weatherford, who not only are highly engaging off of the field, but exceptionally talented on it.

Of course, the one aspect of the interview that stood out — and most certainly had the hosts in shock — was Schwartz's college drinking ability.

"I could put down a fifth in about 30 minutes and not really do much back in the day," Schwartz said. "I haven't been drunk in four or five years, but in college, yeah. I put that down and it wasn't a big deal."

That's impressive for anyone of any size. But it is fair to note for those who are unable to view the video, that Schwartz wasn't boasting about it — he was merely answering the question.

All in all, it looks like he's going to be a good fit for the New York Giants from both a talent and personality perspective.

    Well, first of all, Happy Independence Day to one and all! This is a GREAT day and just as Ben Franklin first suggested, it should be celebrated with gusto since it was the day that truly changed the course of human history for the better. In an age of “declinists” there are still those of us who not only expect America’s best days to be ahead of us, but are damned certain of it. And any of us who are not grateful to be Americans, and for the opportunities available to us and our families as a result of some ancestor having the courage to pick up and leave his or her settled life elsewhere (and yes, I am fully aware that some of us descend from those who didn’t come here voluntarily, but even their descendants are now fortunate to be Americans to a large extent), should think more deeply about the blessings bestowed upon us by this great nation. Our history may not be one of pure goodness, but there has never been a better society created in the history of humankind, nor one that has contributed so much to the betterment of the human condition, and today is a day to appreciate that fact.

    Having said that, the opinions of others about Eli, JPP, and anyone else doesn’t matter. I’ll tell you this: there isn’t a GM, anonymous or otherwise, who wouldn’t trade two rings for whomever he has at quarterback (or at any other position for that matter), and Eli Manning is the primary reason that the Giants have those rings. As for JPP, memories are short. I strongly suspect that after this season he will not have much trouble getting on that stupid Top 100 list. He should be looking down at most of the folks who will be on the list come 2015. I’m glad he was left off. His failure to get respect (perhaps justified after his past two seasons) and his contract year should turn him into a monster in 2014. I think we’re in for a treat.
