The Giants have 2 favorable games coming up. A great chance to change things up with these putrid defensive schemes. We have talent but it's so obvious we aren't utilizing it. I can understand a 4 man rush with Tuck, Osi, kiwi and Canty on passing downs but everything else is terrible.

We have terrible safeties and that's who everyone is targeting. So stop with the dumb cover 2 zones. Thomas and Webster are very good CB yet they don't get to play man. Under Spags, Webster would maul WR at the LOS, he never does this anymore.

I really don't think the defense is that bad, yes our D-line has taken a step back, but that's because we lost a first ballot HOF and Osi is weak. We cannot rely on a 4 man rush like we used to. We need to attack on defense with some crazy blitz schemes and let the CB work man coverage. Obviously this soft zone defense isn't cutting it.

And why are we watching DEs like Osi and Kiwi going into coverage? That NEVER works!

Let Boley handle TE by himself or have some safety help. It's like everytime you see a QB throw a bomb deep it's going to be a catch. Man I miss Phillips, but Sheridan has to work around that loss and adjust, because everyone is adjusting to this pathetic zone coverage.

the team is far from being a good defense. They have a long way to go. The main issue is the personal and lack of "actual talent"

What a sweet game that was for Giants fans!

The above is not a shameless plug. Just a link for those that are interested in my fuller analysis of the game. Don't wanna post a huge thing here.

I feel like the Giants Defense was like Paul Crew in the Longest Yard or something. They were going to throw the season for 10 weeks to bend to the wardens will, but last night decided to go out and play -- consequences be damned.

I mean, anyone else have a better explanation for Osi actually tackling a tailback after pursuing him down the line from behind????


pursuit?

I mean

what the blazes!?

I think we do have talent defensively. Webster IMO has not declined and Thomas has been pretty good. They just aren't utilized to their strengths.

The defensive line is playing pretty good against the run but pressure hasn't been getting there. The Skins game is just an illusion. But i'm happy at the fact that Sheridan actually brought some pressure in the middle which helped guys like Osi and Tuck.

Campbell still had some big 3rd down conversions in the second half which worries me.

Our offense though finally stepped up in the first quarter. If we make the playoffs I don't see our defense making stops against elite offenses like the Eagles, Cards etc. So it's imperative the Giants score early and stay in the game.
