Great article....


They were 9-4 when he played last season, 4-4 when he didn't. Moreover, they didn't lose a game after he returned for the season finale vs. Dallas, a game in which he had two sacks and that launched them into the playoffs.

Umenyiora was a valuable element in that unit, brought off the bench on passing downs to pressure the pocket -- and he did not disappoint. In the playoff opener vs. Atlanta he leaped a blocker on the Falcons' last snap and dumped Ryan at the Giants' 25. It was one of 5.5 sacks for Umenyiora over the last five games, and it was one reason the Giants ran the table.

Trust me, a happy Umenyiora means an unhappy NFC East. The guy is a load off the edge, producing at least a half-sack in all but four of the games in which he played last season. That was when he was miserable. Imagine what happens now that he's not.

I get giddy reading that.... lol

By the way what aren't we allowed to post? I know we're not allowed to quote entire articles but can we post a few lines?

Amen....Tuck, Osi, and JPP.....nuff said. Opposing QB's probably have the game against us on their calendar with a red circle around it much like a student would a tough exam....in other words, they're not looking forward to it very much.

This is great news, can't wait the is going to be an awesome defense this year!Here an example of where I'd like to simply say "+1" but the system is set up to require at least 10 characters. It would be nice if we can change that like we changed the default sorting of messages to last post descending.

Have you tried hitting the tab key a few times, or maybe the space bar? Blanks should be counted as characters...... I'll give it a shot and let you know the results.

Lol, I'm sure they can fix it easily. Not a big deal for me though, I usually don't +1 too much.

guy just has a knack for strip sacks, its crazy how good he is at it. i can almost understand why he's not that great against the run. imho that initial burst of speed of the line its hard to shift and redirect that momentum especially against a shifty running back, if Osi was to play for the run all the time or even most of the time we loose a lot that that turnover production, i never played DE so i'm talking out of the *** here, but thats an honest assessment

It's a fallacy.

Praying for no big nasty injuries this coming season. That been said watching football all my life every year there's always something to lament about concerning injuries. Bummer !

The defense and the team as a whole will have the "team" attitude from the start this season. Last the D took a while to settle into the team aspect because of the all the injuries and out of postion issues they faced.

This season will be a much more consistent season for the Gmen.....or should be anyway...
