I think it is between us and the Eagles realistically.

Canty and Joseph are high Quality players, and we have three Top-Notch DEs.

If Marvin Austin can do what he is capable of I think we are looking at 6 High Quality Linemen.

The Eagles have some real good players up front too, but Pierre-Paul gives us an edge I think.

Thoughts?

Yeah, I think so. Teams are lucky to have one elite D-end - the Giants have three.

This line should be able to bring the heat all game long. Health is the only thing that can slow it down.

OCs and QBs must hate seeing "New York Giants" on their schedule.

Giants hands down if you count Kiwi being able to apply pressure, not so much getting to the QB, but standing lineman up for the others to attack.

If Austin really comes through that leaves us with 2 run stuffing DT's (Joesph, Rogers) and 2 pass rushers (Canty, Austin). which would open up endless possible rush combinations at Fewell's disposal.

As far as our DE's go we all know Jpp, Tuck, and Osi will do their job. Mix in Tracy or Trattou, 2 talented depth guys, and fatigue is a something you'll never have to worry about.
There will always be 2 fresh D-Linemen in the game at all times which is sweet.

The Giants are really miles ahead of the other teams when it comes to quality, depth, and talent on the d-line.

Yeah i agree. its between the giants and the eagles

the eagles i think had 46 defensive line sacks last year, whereas the giants had 41.5 defensive line sacks... which is impressive considering the injuries to osi/tuck during the course of the year

In the end, ill take the giants defensive line over phillys because of the run defense factor. I know the eagles are a 1-gap up field, attacking scheme and didnt have quality linebackers last year, but I don't think they'd hold up well against the run even if they were more disciplined. the giants have the pass rush and run-stuffing capabilities

We should have the best pass rush in the league.

But I don't understand why people assume that problems we had last season are just going to fix themselves.

Chris Canty doesn't bring it every play. Is he suddenly going to change his attitude? Perhaps but we have no reason to assume so and LJ would need to take a signifcant step for us to have a legit 1-2 punch at DT.

This. I can't say I'm not concerned given the dismal performance by our defense last year. Yeah, people were hurt, but dang we were BAD. With the talent we sitll had, there was no excuse to be as bad as we were.</P>

Linval would have to step it up? He played his *** off all season and most importantly the playoffs. Guy is a force that keeps getting better.

I didnt say he needed to step up..He played well. I said he needed to take a step if he wants to be part of a dominate DT tandem. Same goes for Canty.

You should turn on the film of Canty. Infamous for taking plays off/running around blocks etc.

Maybe its the hate. But I still don't understand the love for philly's D-line. Their sack numbers were blown up because they are a one track D. I can't really say they are better than Detroit who actually plays the run.

Jenkins, Patterson, Landri, Cox > Canty, Rogers, Joseph, Austin

JPP, Tuck, Osi, Kiwi > Babin, Cole, Curry, Parker

I think both teams have two elite pass rushers, and solid interiors. It's the third guy that's a trade off. NY has a better 3rd and 4th pass rusher, and Philly has a better 3rd and 4th DT.

Trade off in my mind.

im not so sure i would say detroit's d-line plays the run. i think they're just as undisciplined as philly's dline is.

Jenkins is mostly a 3 tec pass rushing DT in that D. He was absolutely horrible against the run. Patterson is good against the run but good for nothing else. Detroit, Buffalo, and Houston has better D-Lines.

Right, but Babin is 32 and is predominately relies on the speed rush. It's not like the guy is going to emerge and be a dominant force for years to come, like JPP for instance who Babin is being compared to.

Well I don't think a direct comparison to JPP would be fair, but Osi is kind of in the same boat, except with far more wear and tear.

Babin, although old in terms of years, barely played for many of those years he has spent in the league.

You could even make the case with Tuck, who is always banged up, and slowly getting up there in years as well. Babin as a 9T end has been one of the best sack artists of the past two years.

I think the best comparison would be to Osi, because of the type of DE and their age as well. You're right about wear and tear, however you still have to consider age because of the type of pass rusher Babin is, as well as the defense that the Eagles run which makes age that much more significant.

True. But in their system he is not responsible for the run. The dt and lbs are. Both him and cole are attacking the qb almost every snap...

Cox could be solid for them in run support unfortunately.

But i agree with the op. We have the best dl in the league.

dont 4get about shaun rodgers bruh. this cat singlehandedly collapses the interior of the pocket by himself. imagine the havoc we will wreak this year with tuck next to him on the interior AND jpp and osi on passing downs? man.....smh. this could very well be called the "gladiator" package, for the way offensive line walls will collapse.

Let's not forget the 49ers too. From what we saw last year, they were the only D-Line that gave a real beating on Eli. I just hope they do not keep that up. We were able to hold off most D-lines including the eagles but somehow the 49ers were too much. Good thing that Eli is an ironman.

He has had 30.5 sacks the past two years, those people who haven't heard of him probably shouldn't be even polled for a respectable opinion.

Ok great, my point still stands that I'll take Osi over Babin. I think its more likely that Osi puts up higher numbers than a guy who has only done so twice over 9 seasons.

Let's not forget the 49ers too. From what we saw last year, they were the only D-Line that gave a real beating on Eli. I just hope they do not keep that up. We were able to hold off most D-lines including the eagles but somehow the 49ers were too much.* Good thing that Eli is an ironman.
They have an excellent 3-4 DL, but that
s mainly because of Justin Smith. McDonald and Sopoaga are nice supporting players, together they formed a dominant unit.

But that defense was made by its LBers...A. Smith, Bowman, and Willis are all superstars.

Osi--JPP--Tuck--Kiwi--Canty--Linval--Austin--Rogers--Trattou?</font>


Tell me any unit that can compete with the quality and quantity of our D-line.


osi, jpp, tuck canty

babin, cole, jenkins parker.

I like our d line better but whats with the
canty, linval hype? They are both average Dtackles.
