Few defenses have been able to befuddle Giants quarterback Eli Manning this season. The quarterback is fourth in the NFL in passing yards (3,705), fifth in touchdowns (23) and sixth in passer rating (96.0), which adds up to arguably the best season of his eight-year career.

Rob Ryan, the outspoken Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator, told reporters in Dallas that his defense’s goal is to confuse quarterbacks and “make them play left-handed.”

And he thinks Dallas is going to be able to do that against Manning on Sunday night. Exactly how remains a question.

“We’re going to find out Sunday night because we’re going to do it,” Ryan said.

Whether Ryan will have linebacker and sackmaster DeMarcus Ware to aid in Manning’s befuddlement is up in the air.

Ware, the NFL’s sack leader with 15, is still dealing with the effects of a stinger he suffered in the Cowboys’ loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday

The Ryan's sure do love to run their mouth, I cannot wait to see Eli carve that weak secondary up!!!

Hope eli lights them up four 4TD passes and 450 yards with no turnovers. that will shut Ryan up

Here's some in depth analysis I put together about how to deal with the Dallas defense and the concerns the Giants need to have:</P>


The biggest concern for me actually is the fact that without question this will be the best defense they've faced this year save for the 49ers. With the Giants struggles on defense, they need the offense to put up points, this is not an easy defense to play against. Rob Ryan has for the most part done a solid job with this group all season long. I'm not a big stats guy but here's a brekadown:</P>


<U>Defensive rankings Dallas Cowboys</U>:</P>


Yards/game: 11th</P>


Points/game: 10th</P>


TD's against: Only 23 (Giants have given up 33)</P>


Pass Defense Yards/game: 14th</P>


Pass TD's Against: 12th</P>


Sacks: 2nd only to Baltimore for the most</P>


Plays over 40 Yards Passing: 4th fewest</P>


Int's: 11th most</P>


Rush Defense Yards/rush: 9th 4.2/carry</P>


Rush Defense Yards/game: 9th 100.5</P>


Rushing TD's: tied for 8th w/ 3 other teams which is behind 4 teams tied for 4th (only 7 given up, one behind 4th which is 6 given up)</P>


Longest run against: 11th, just one for 40 yards</P>


20 Yard Runs against: 5th least</P>


Penalties against &amp; Penalty Yards against (was a big issue for their defense in the past, not any more): 3rd, 1st lowest respectively</P>


Time of Possession against 13th</P>


Fumbles Forced: 11th with 16 but only have recovered 8 of them which is 22nd.</P>


<U>Most Exploitable</U>:</P>


<FONT color=#ff0000>Plays over 20 Yards Passing: 20th with 40 such plays given up:</FONT> Ballard, Cruz, Nicks, Mario and even Barden must exploit this at opportune times by working that 20 - 40 yard area of the field like they have done so well all year</P>


<FONT color=#ff0000>Yards/play: 16th at 5.5/play: <FONT color=#000000>Eli must be patient and work the underneath area with checkdowns to the backs &amp; the TE's and then take his shots in that aforementined 20-40 yard range. The backs need to average around that 4.2/carry Dallas gives up when it is a running play.</FONT></FONT></P>


<FONT color=#ff0000>Opposing Completion Percentage: 19th:</FONT> It is given that Eli always needs to be sharp but he must maintain focus and be accurate and true with his throws which he most certainly has been more than not this season. Dallas seems to allow you to catch it but they must be limiting the YAC. We get some YAC from the guys catching the ball it will be a huge bonus as it always is.</P>


I'll also mention that if we can coerce some bad penalties by playing firey and aggressive on offense and punching the defense in the mouth by being physical it's a bonus as Dallas just doesn't do the bad defensive penalty this season. Props to Rob Ryan for fixing what was a glaring issue but at the end of the day they still have several boneheaded, prima donna, smallish, unphysical softies on that side of the ball as in past seasons (can you say the lingering stench of Wade Phillips? lol) so this would be the time to coax that old undiscplined play out of them by frustrating them with physical offense.</P>

The Eagles tried that with twoDB's in their first meeting and one of them was Nhamdi, as did Seattle, didn't matter.</P>

</P>


Rex and Robare a little more advanced than what Buddy used to run. Eventually what happens to all versions of it (and I've seen them all close-up and personal believe me), is teams figure out how to run the ball effectively. There are several examples of this over the years. Look what the Giants did to the Ravens under Rex in 2008. 200+ yards rushing? Unheard of! Jets aren't as stout against it this year either. Look what the Raiders did and the Broncos too.</P>

Eli will be prepared for everything Dallas has to offer.</P>


Our defense needs to get in sync, with the d = line it appeared that Williams the mlb had a # of opportunities to shoot the gap but chose to go around instead of up the middle, he needs to get in Romo's face early.</P>

This is getting more and more and more Bizarre and just plain Weird

1st Ware and their DB come out complaining Jacobs is a Bully, and they Hate playing the Giants- WTF!!!!

Now Ryan's Hillbilly brother is going to confuse the most prepared, weapon laden QB in the league??

Only Brees, Rodgers, and Brady are in Eli's class

Ware has a stinger and we all know what that did to Tuck

I think these guys a scared very very very scared, and for good reason

With this mind set, if we go 10 points up on them they may implode, and stop trying like we did against the Saints and the game will be a blow out

I'll throw this in as a WildCard- Vinny DiTrani is picking the Giants and he is always right when he picks against us.....it drives me nuts.....lets see if he can reverse his magic

It was more sarcasm than anything, since the Cowboys' secondary rarely seems to cover receivers that need to be covered.

Yeah, I can only hope that Ryan tries to get cute and clever with Eli. Eli will have all his offensive weapons available and he will destroy the Dallas D. It may work on a few plays here and there but D-coordinators have been trying to throw different looks at Eli for years. That's how you deal with smart veteran QBs like the Mannings, Brady, Brees, etc. They are rarely fooled. I Think Eli is one of the best at picking up on different looks; maybe even better than Peyton.

Ryan is basically saying "Our secondary can't stay with the Giants passing attack so we'll have to throw in a lot of stunts and take some risks."

How soon everyone forgets that Nicks is constantly being doubled evry game. Allowing Cruz to wreak havoc.

Whenever someone goes from the norm and tries to get "cute" they usually fail. Rob is setting up his D for mass failure.

As much as I believe the run is important to help the passing game, the Giants do not run the ball very well and they need to keep someone in to chip Ware.

I see a lot of screens and short passing game out of those chips back there too.

No they should be scared because they have lost 5 out of the last 7 games we have played eachother. Should also be scared that we put Romo on IR. Also should be scared that Eli is playing lights out and that your secondary is garbage. </P>
