No question in mind that Osi has the ability to stop the run, but I think his sack happy nature prevents him from doing just that. It seems like he loses all consciousness when he see a clear path to a QB. For instance, last night those delay hand off to McCoy was like his kryptonite. He plays as if no else on opponents offense have ability to possess the ball other the QB. So when he realized Vick didn't have the Ball a few of the draw plays. He had to change direction towards the running back, and by that time the RB is gone. Afterwards, you can see that clueless I screwed up look on his face. Osi is really fast, and could keep put with the best of them. I question is strategy and not his ability. What do you think?

I dont know what the deal is with Osi this year. He isnt getting to the QB and is getting burned on the run. I would be confused as heck if i was Perry Fewell.

Another thing that pissed me the **** off was after Osi gave up those big couple runs to his side, he got pulled out of the rotation for a breather. And what was he doing? Laughing/smiling on the sideline like he just made a great play or something. Until I see one of his famous strip sacks WHEN WE NEED ONE this guy is washed up IMO

I said Osi is overrated but others say oh he is good and swatting the ball away. He is getting me mad and wasting Giant's money.

I think our d-line, or at least the d-ends aren't playing with much discipline. Only saving grace is JPP is making the plays, but I think Tuck and Osi are playing horrible. They haven't been staying in lanes and they have been really slacking in pursuit. Eagles went inside/outside repeatedly on them and they are totally exposed and winded.

He was terrible last night laughing like a jackass when he screwed up. He just wants sacks this year to max out his payday this offseason.

I think if he were more discipline he would be able to stop the run.

Wow, that might be both the most in depth and most simplistic explanation ever. Anyone with a kid who played soccer is nodding.

Osi has never been a run stopper - NEVER! He can put pressure on the QB, but it seems that when the QB gets flushed out of the pocket there is noone else in the back field to meet him..

Should have been benched. (Are the Giants morally opposed to benching anyone who isn't a rookie??) He was clearly fantasizing about what he was gonna say on twitter after the game.

We're talking about him playing the run? Well he didn't look like much of a pass rusher to me either. How many times can you let Vick just run aroudn you. That's a mistake I used to make on the JV squad..

McCoy ran to Osi's side every time and Osi was nowhere in sight.

Seriously though guys, how embarrassing is his pass rush sometimes? Can someone make a video??

He rarely gets to the QB anymore and his dancing in front of the OT is getting old.

He will just literally come off the ball run towards the OT and studder step side-to-side, side-to-side with his hands in the air just kind of swatting at the OT's shoulder pads. Its EMBARRASSING he needs to hit the weights big time, he is too small. Too bad he should have done that 6 years ago and is now obsolete. My guess: This is his last year in the NFL.

I mean just compare Osi and JPP, JPP could toss Osi to the moon. So could Eli, I bet Eli weighs more than Osi

Exactly, CDN_G-Fan said it best. He does seem like a 4 yr old chasing a ball on run plays because all he look for is sacks and nothing else.
