Giants.com reports that backup RB Mike Cloud has caught Tom Coughlin's eye. "Mike Cloud, when he did carry the ball, appeared to be a versatile football player who actually looked a lot this spring like he did up in Minnesota when he had the ball in his hands," Coughlin said in reference to Cloud's 55-yard, two-TD game at Minnesota. "I think that was perhaps some of the best things that he did this spring was to show us that again."


DAMMIT CARL :cuss:

I didn't even know he was still in the league.

He definately was never going to make it with the Chiefs, but I never understood why he didn't get more of a chance after that Oakland game he had - was that 99 or 00??

Likewise, I figured he was working at a local Burger King or something. :hmmm:

I remember when our hopes rested on Mike Clourd.

I wish I didn't.

All he needed was more time for the drugs to kick in.

Hmm...

a former BC coach pimping a former BC running back.

Who'd a thunk it?

So they want to go from Thunder and Lightning to Cloud and Lightning? That makes sense, kinda.

Season opener in '98. I remember him going long and was wiiide open for a Rich Gannon pass, only to have it bounce off his fingers. Would have been a sure TD. The ESPN cameras caught Marty raising holy hell in Cloud's face after that. IMO, his confidence went right in the crapper after that.

He did lead the patriots to a super bowl win, IIRC

He started in 99 (unless NFL.com has it wrong) and I think it was the second Oak game in 00 - he rushed for somethink like 90 yards on 20 carries and a TD. He sat the bench from that day forward.
