Osi gone
Canty too expensive for production
Tuck slowing down
Blackburn slow but makes plays
Webster turning into toast
Philips leg injuries
Prince playing like a third round pick
TT coming of IR again
Rolle expensive and makes bone head decisions but multi dimensional
Austin a bust
Kiwi lost at LB
Stevie brown is a turnover machine

Witten not retiring
RG3 around for Another 10 years with Alfred Morris
Romo in Dallas for another 5 years


So many choices.....for a defense ranked in the 20s

dude, this is a pretty legit thread but tbh i dont think Prince is playing like a third round pick. He is easily our best corner, i mean thats not saying much but still...

with that said, i think Rolle will need to take a pay cut.

Tuck will stay unless he chooses to retire. No way we would let him go...

I have a feeling we will keep Blackburn.

Kiwi will/needs to go back to the line, Rivers needs to be cut.

its too early to consider Austin a bust but i agree he is not looking promising.

no idea about Canty. imo he seems pretty legit, disruptive down the middle.

TT needs to take a pay cut or be cut.

KP definitely worries me but i think he will stay.

In my ideal world:

Line:
-Osi Gone, Tuck takes a pay cut and only works in a rotational DE. Kiwi transitions to full time DE. Tracy and Ojomo.rotate in and work in Nascar package.
-Canty takes a pay cut, rotates at DT with Linval and Kuhn. Austin released.

LB:
-Blackburn defensive captain and undisputed starter.
-Boley starts WLB, Rivers and Williams rotate at SLB.

Secondary:
-Webster released, Prince and Hosley starting corners. Draft a corner somewhere in the 4th-5th round to shore up the secondary. If TT somehow recovers from a third straight ACL (latest one wasn't nearly as serious), he gets a one-year deal to play depth.
-Rolle released, KP and Stevie starting safeties, Will Hill as our 3rd safety in the 3 safety set.


So mostly, what i would change is the D line above everything else...

I'm starting to lean towards this. I think we have a ton of talent on our team ... we just a better scheme and focus.

It's easy to pick on the coordinators but PF's schemes and defenses have never instilled a lot of confidence in me (even when we've won with them).

Prince has ability. He's still learning our system.

He trails (and gets beat) any time the opposing team runs a slant and he's been beat on the double move quite a bit this year. He's not *bad* but he's not nearly one of the best CBs in the league. He's definitely not playing at the level we drafted him at but he's coming along.

Some peoPle are takIng notes from a few people here. Not only is prince our best comer , he's been ranked in the top 10 this year. That's not a third round level of production. Majority of big plays have come against Webb and seen last night down the middle. I'm not sure how I feel about Austin. Injuries has hampered his production so time will tell if he's a bust. I'd like to keep Rovers for another year. Get him fully fit over the offseason with sunrise to fix his injuries. He has shown when he is on the field he's been solid granted that's with limited time on the field.

The draft this year seems loaded heavily focused on Dline so can possibly boost the line if the players are there.

The thE thing with this defense is that's it's capable of Playing lights out as seen in the packers,49ers,panthers and the cowboy game to an extent. The front four have to get more pressure on the qb. We only hit brees with around 5 minutes to go. This needs improvement

I would hire a new DC. This bend and don't break crap drives me nuts. Many times in crtical 3rd and long I see confusion among our linebackers. Why can't our ends be coached to contain? Why do we continually get beat up the gut? Giants D should be top ten not bottom ten. Its great that we prevent the td's and 4th and 1's but between the twenties confusion reigns.

It all starts with coaching. We have skilled players at every position. We need to make sure that the best performers are in and they know what their assignments are. Everyone here harps about execution, but if players are not executing then what are they doing on the field? What is the coaching staff doing to address execution during practice?

You cannot be serious! The only reason he doesn't get abused more is that Webster is getting abused. Go watch the 1990 NFCCG to see Mark Collins cover the best receiver in NFL history. Prince has not got the upper body strength to tackle and reverts to horse collars.

There is a vast difference between a college scouting report and how they play in the pros. Do you know how objective scouting reports are? Cut and paste jobs. I have been watching the NFL for 30 years and I have have seen hall of fame, all pro and pro bowlers and prince will never be any of these. He is soft and there is no way reese will give him a lucrative second contract. Perhaps reese also got burned by seeing a top five prospect fall and couldn't resist the hype?

You arent substatiating your claim. As far as receptions against, passes defended and TD against Price has been a very solid player this year. PFF backs this up with a high rating as well. Webster has been very poor, but not Prince. So, do you have any stats to substatiate your claims? Or is it just your opinion that we should bet the farm on?

I also think people need to get prepared for TT''s release this spring. No way the Giants pay him what he is due next year considering his injury history. They could resign him for cheaper, but he will not earn that fat paycheck simply because he wont be ready to go come spring and the Giants must decide by then. It would be a HUGE gamble and considering their .track record on situations like this(S Smith) they wont overpay.

We have a lot of needs, but IMHO the primary needs this offseason are DE and Corner. Osi is done and Tuck is stuggling. We need another guy who can beat 1v1 blocks aside from JPP. Right now defenses are doubling JPP and the other guys arent winning the 1v1s. I say Corner because I believe TT is done and if he does come back it will be as a possible safety. Hosely is a nickle corner because of his size and Cweb is showing his age. This leaves us with an open slot on the outside opposite Prince.

Osi is a 3rd down specialist now, agree if he wants to be paid as full time player let him go
I like Canty, he plays hard
Tuck is a shell of his former self, this is a tough call
Blackburn is solid, not a big need
Unfortunately Webster wiull have to stay, would be nice if TT came back and pushed him
Prince has played very well but he is injury, gotta hope he can stay healthy
KP is still a young guy but he is another in a long list of Giants defenders who can't stay healthy
Rolle is the heart of the Defense
Let Austin walk, hopefully Kuhn and Rodgers come back healthy, need a 4 man rotation
Kiwi should play DE exclusively
Stevie Brown is a solid third Safety

With Osi gone and Tuck most likely gone, the DE position may be an issue... however I would move Kiwi into the rotation, and if the coaching staff believes him capable Ojomo could be the 4th in DE rotation (Tracy being 3rd). At DT you have Joseph and Canty... will most likely need to sign or draft depth.

LB is an area of concern, I like Williams, Boley is OK and Blackburn has been solid. Rivers has not been impressive and likely won't come back. Herz unfortunately is probably an experiment coming to a close. We will need to find depth/potential future starters at each LB position, this is an area to address in the draft... although that would be a huge change in draft philosophy.

Webster isn't showing much this year that would indicate he should return next year at the salary he is getting. Corner is going to be an issue best solved through free agency, because you are probably going to need someone that can play opposite Prince immediately and generally don't find that with a rookie.

I like the safeties, including Rolle, but with so much depth at the position you have to wonder if the salary Rolle is getting will make him a cap casualty.

I think the main change I would make however is the d-coord position... PF seems to realize about the same time every year that his scheme isn't working, then start to make changes, then reverts back to what wasn't working at the beginning of the next year. We need someone who learns from his mistakes.

We are soft in the middle it seems. Replace Blackburn and get a big body run stuffer to pair with Joseph Kuhn and Canty. Websters has more bad plays than good ones and that trait is gaining momentum. We need another first rate corner. I'm hoping Tracy and or Ojomo will contribute at DE next season. Tuck is mostly invisible and Osi is slowing down. I'm ok with KP, Hill and Brown. Rolle is a player tho hard to let him go. If he does leave we need to get another solid guy to back up the first 3. I like Blackburn, he makes some great plays but a tackling machine at MLB he is not and we could use one. Blackburn is smart tough and takes good angles but is to often blown out in the middle and his lack of speed is evident. I have often seen him get a hand or an arm on the ball carrier
where as a 4.5 4.6 backer could of had a shot at a wrap up tackle.

For this team to save money..they would have to cut either Webster or Terrell Thomas. Those two guys are eating up cap space, while Prince is starting to prove himself. We also will run into an issue with Rolle base salary increasing and Kenny Phillips rookie contract expiring. Osi will likely be gone, Rolle will be asked to be restructure and Canty and probably even Boley. I see the defense staying relatively the same...no Thomas and Osi. Blackburn may be ran out because Reese is an idiot...Reese really do not want Blackburn here, he just do not have options with Herzlich being so terrible and he goofed up on Greg Jones.

Manstache
12-10-2012, 10:13 PM
first and foremost, WE NEED A DOMINANT RUN STUFFER UP THE MIDDLE, preferably via draft because the free agency route would prove to be too rich for our blood. the way teams run the ball against us is maddening, and a major factor why our pass rushers cant get to the passer at will is because they have to overcompensate and crash inside in some instances. canty and anvil are solid, but we need that absolute monster up the gut to singlehandedly collaps pockets, álá suh, ngata, etc. having such a force up the middle would definitely help us contain that bullsh*t option, as thats predicated heavily on the run. constant penetration in the backfield would disrupt any run scheme. if we can find a legit upgrade over chase, im with that too. but if we could get a true demon up the middle it would reverberate through our entire defense.

We dont need a corner with the first pick or a DE with the second pick. We have a young Adrian Tracy and dont forget Ojomo is sitting on the inactive list. We need a LB first pick and a OL second pick followed by a DT than a CB. We need to get some depth on our oline. I seriously have no faith in DD nor Brewer for that matter and cant count on Locklear with that ACL tear. We need an upgrade on LBer's bad.

Overrated? Hell no, he's an excellent cover corner,.. the only knock against him is that he's a bit of a poor tackler, but that can be worked on. DRC would be a HUGE boost to our secondary.. We absolutely need cover corners that can keep up with the Dez Bryant/Miles Austin combos.. that will be our downfall if don't get better people back there. Prince is a step in the right direction, but he needs someone better on the other side.

Are we being realistic here or are we going wild? I'll be realistic.

Shore up the middle, we need a solid run stuffing DT

Blackburn is solid and Herz is a fan fav, but we need a MLB with range and is a monster run stuffer...

TT gone we need another solid corner

Another monster DE would be nice

KP's knee scares me

I'd go DT in FA as Rocky Bernard is getting up in age....

I'd draft for another CB on the first day (What ever made sense)

I'd draft a DE first day if that made sense (Don't think Tracy is an every down DE, haven't seen Ojomo yet)

MLB is still an are of need IMHO,

trim the defensive salary .
keep the younger/cheaper players and dump all these
turds making big money. and the injury prone.
you really think we're getting 8 mil production apiece out of Webb and Rolle ?
and there are many others....being overpaid....or just never play due to injuries.

keep guys like JPP , Prince , Hill , Brown , etc....

defensively we suck anyway...so why not dump the money and get younger.
overpaid underweight D-line that can't tackle or stuff the run....and lately can't even get a sack.
LB's that are slow , can't tackle or cover .
secondary that can't stay healthy enough to play.

if your gonna have a bottom tier defense.....then at least pay them accordingly.

Redeyejedi
12-11-2012, 07:49 AM
Fix the Dline everything else will fall into place

The biggest issue with this defense is the Defensive ends are longer elite players. At worst the Giants need to draft a 3rd down pass rush specialist early in the draft. Shouldnt be a problem, because this draft is stocked with Athletic defensive ends.I believe the Giants in fact need 2 defensive ends as i dont think Justin Tuck has much left and he certainly cant get to the QB anymore.I would take Ends with the first 2 picks if the quality presented itself but I doubt that will happen.

The younger CB's havent proved they can start either. I disagree the defense sux. they are top 8th in scoring playing the most difficult NFL schedule. It can be improved but outside of the Seahawks,49ers and Bears every other team has been drastically up and

We need more OL. Two picks one inside G/C and one outside T/G.
We are grooming Brewer as RT, McCants as LT, Mosley at G. I would resign Locklear cut DD.
I'm not comfortable with what we have going forward.

I think we need another cover CB. We have Webster but he seems to have lost a step as he has been beaten alot this year?
We have Prince and Hosley who are both learning. We need another good cover corner. We should have 5 CBs total.

We are set at safety with Phillps, Rolle, Brown Will Hill and Tyler Sash!!!! Total DBs =10 including 5 CBs. Restructure contracts!

We need a run stuffing DT to compliment Joseph and Canty. Im disappointed with Marvin Austin. He looks out of shape and slow.

I would return Kiwi to the DE rotation along with rookie Ojomo(=new Osi) who looked good in pre season.

I would draft an OLB with speed and a MLB.

If we can afford NY Jets TE Dustin Keller via FA if he comes cheap, he would be another weapon on offense that would open things up for our WRs and RBs. He would be another Jason Witten type TE. The Giants were going to draft him but the Jets moved up and took him. He is having an average year so he may come cheap? He would complement M Bennett.

In no particular order, we need: CB, DT, OLB, MLB, OL, OL, RB

Honestly, we need a better Defensive Coordinator. We have alot of talent that isnt allowed to play up to their potential due to the ]type schemes he calls, to help compensate for an area that is deficient as well as to me are too passive, play not to loose mentality. Im not saying we have to be over aggressive but we dont mix it up. We play basic schemes too frequently to the point that QBs can read and react to it. We need to disguise our coverages more so QBs dont know who is in pass coverage and who is coming for the QB. It is just my gut that Fewell schemes are not creative enough. If we had other DC im sure we could have a better defensive team. Look at what the DC for the skins did against us. He mixed things up to casue confusion.
