  • Re: THEE NYG SWAG THREAD

    Excellent article about Kiwi

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...wanuka_pi.html


    Mathias Kiwanuka was one of the first players on the field Sunday,
    warming up in a steady rain at MetLife Stadium. He was going through his
    run “fits,” imagining himself coming downhill and meeting a lead
    blocker and/or the ball carrier.
    </p>



    About three hours later, on the first play from scrimmage in the Giants’
    game against the Cowboys, Kiwanuka flew into the backfield where he
    wrapped up Felix Jones and brought him down for a loss of 1 yard.
    </p>



    It was a tone-setting play and he’d add another in the second
    quarter, when he ran through fullback Tony Fiammetta to tackle Jones for
    a loss of 2.
    </p>



    Though these kinds of plays don’t come with the glory (and bargaining
    power) of sacks, Kiwanuka has learned to accept them as a part of his
    new life at linebacker.
    </p>



    “You’ve got to thrive off it, start to enjoy it. And once you’re
    given a role in the defense, you just kind of have to go out there and
    do it,” Kiwanuka said Monday as he headed for his day-plus of rest
    before preparation for the playoff game against the Falcons begins
    today.
    </p>



    “I told myself, ‘(defensive tackle) Linval Joseph is kind of in a
    similar situation. You’re a run-stopper. I’m the run-stopper for the
    linebackers.’ It’s tough because sometimes, the better you play, the
    less you play.
    </p>



    “But at the same time, you’re making that team one-dimensional and
    you’re giving your team a better chance. If they’re not talking about
    the other team running the ball that means I’m doing my job.”
    </p>



    Kiwanuka’s job has been an important one for the Giants this season,
    even if he’s not being talked about as much as the pass-rushers in front
    of him.
    </p>



    While Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora have gotten to the
    quarterback a combined 25½ times, Kiwanuka has recorded just 3½ sacks.
    That’s a half-sack short of last season’s total in 13 more games played.
    The reason is he’s been mostly limited to being a run-stopper who
    occasionally drops into coverage and sometimes puts his hand down as a
    pass-rusher.
    </p>



    Often, Kiwanuka’s contributions can’t even be measured in tackles,
    such as in the season opener when he did a terrific job of taking on
    lead blocks to keep the Redskins’ running game contained. As the Giants
    prepare for the Falcons’ rushing attack, which struggled late in the
    season but erupted for 251 yards against the Buccaneers on Sunday,
    they’ll need such physical play from Kiwaunka.
    </p>



    “That was really an outstanding game for Kiwi,” coach Tom Coughlin
    said of his play against Dallas, adding: “We put a lot of time and
    emphasis into stopping the run. One of the packages was what you saw
    right away early in the game with Kiwi. He certainly did respond and
    play well.”
    </p>



    It’s been well-documented how Kiwanuka’s neck injury last season allowed him to accept and appreciate a role at linebacker he once resisted. Just being on the field again after a herniated disc threatened his career is enough to make him smile.</p>



    Toss in another shot to experience his first playoff victory as an
    active player (he was on injured reserve with a broken leg during the
    run to Super Bowl XLII), plus 16 games played, and you have a guy who’s
    thankful for a lot right now.
    </p>



    “Just dealing with family issues, from my brother’s motorcycle
    accident (in May 2010) to myself being injured and not being able to
    complete a season, being on IR for the second time in five years, it
    becomes tough,” he said. “So having completed an entire regular season,
    it was an emotional moment.”
    </p>



    Especially since he made it through this season despite a lot of pounding on his neck as a run-stopper.</p>



    “It’s definitely more of a physical toll because you’ve got a running
    start against a guy who might be shorter but a lot of those fullbacks,
    they pack some weight,” he said. “It’s a physical game, but that’s my
    style of football. I like to come downhill, I like to hit. I like when a
    team has a big fullback they have confidence in because that means I’m
    going to be out there a lot and get a chance to get to the ball.”
    </p>



    For the Falcons, that big fullback was Ovie Mughelli, whom the Giants
    attempted to sign before Atlanta outbid them in 2007. Mughelli has been
    on injured reserve since suffering a knee injury in October, and it’s
    no coincidence Michael Turner has only two 100-yard games since Mike Cox
    took over at fullback. (Turner eclipsed 100 yards four times in seven
    games behind Mughelli.)
    </p>



    Still, Turner’s 172-yard performance against Tampa on Sunday means
    the Giants need Kiwanuka and the rest of the front to play well so they
    can do the other thing Kiwanuka still loves — get after the quarterback.
    </p>



    Even if it is his old Boston College buddy Matt Ryan, whom he described as “fearless” when making throws into coverage.</p>



    “There’s one way to rattle any quarterback: you hit them in the face a
    few times and that makes their job a lot harder,” Kiwanuka said. “If
    you shut down the run and make them one-dimensional, put them in
    situations where they have to throw the ball, that gives us an
    (advantage), especially with that front we have.”

                    That wrist is scary though man. He just can't fall on it or anything. I love that man. He is the toughest guy in the NBA. How about Bynum to? I wish that guy could just stay healthy.

                    You got lucky someone took D Will right in front of you. Tough break with Manu though. Zach Randolph is out for 8 weeks now to. Kobe is makin your team look like the truth!
