    GIANTS' JAKE BALLARD HAS LITTLE FAITH COWBOYS' BRANDON CARR CAN STOP HAKEEM NICKS, VICTOR CRUZ

    "Cornerback Brandon
    Carr
    is the Dallas
    Cowboys
    ' shiny new toy. Considered a quality defensive back, he's a
    significant upgrade over what they previously had. But will he be enough to help
    shutdown the New York
    Giants' tandem of Hakeem
    Nicks
    and Victor
    Cruz
    ? Tight end Jake
    Ballard
    certainly doesn't think so.

    Needless to say, big time CBs haven't exactly had their way with Big Blue
    WRs.




    Back in 2009, Carr's second year in the NFL, he and the Kansas City Chiefs defense were picked
    apart by Eli Manning & Co., giving up 292 yards and three touchdowns through
    the air. Nicks and former WR Steve Smith accounted for 188 of those yards and
    all three of the touchdowns. And while Carr did defend three passes, it was far
    from a career day for him.




    While Carr has undoubtedly improved since then, so has Nicks. And as talented
    as Cruz already is, he's only going to get better. In other words: good call,
    Mr. Ballard.

        #2. keep your mouth shut. Trash talking is not the giants way. We are not the Jets. Let your play on the field do the talking not some BS tweet.

          I like the trash talk in the offseason. Keeps things interesting. Plus he's just showing some confidence in his fellow teammates.

          On the other hand, I don't think anyone is expecting Carr to stop or shutdown WRs. He's a significant upgrade over Newman though, and is a top 10 CB who I think matches up well with Nicks.

          The article mentions that he's gotten better since 2009, which is true. But I think it's understated how much better he's gotten since 2009. In 2009, QB's had a 99 rating when passing at him. That number has dropped 20 points every season since. And that's playing opposite one of the better corners in the league and without much of a pass rush.

              [/quote]Trash talk isn't the Giants way? Jesus, this isn't 1950 anymore. Do you realize the Giants basically trash talked their way to a Super Bowl win? Rolle and JPP were two of the ****iest athletes I've ever witnessed during that run, and you know what, they backed it up with their play. Did it inspire their teammates? Who knows. But to say its not the "Giants way" is ridiculous. This team has changed, and trash talking seems to be a big part of it at this point.

                    This is one of those quotes that will never hurt us. The same way we boldly announced we were going after Revis and we weren't scared. It didn't matter what we said Revis is for real and all the pre-game talk did nothing to affect his game. In the same line of thought you can say anything you want about Nicks and Cruz eventually one or the other will burn you.

                    FYI Giants 2012 were trash talkers, led by Rolle, Boley, and Jacobs.
                    Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                      #1. You actually think what he said is considered "trash talk".??? It was nothing




                      #2. Why is Ballard sticking up for his receivers and Championship Team a bad thing??




                      You said it all when you said "BS tweet"....You are correct it is BS.

                            The Chiefs have a very good pass rush, most of the time.

                              No Cornerback in the NFL can shut down Nicks consistently. However this is why I do think the Giants should bring in another weapon in the passing game. Whether it be a Seam Stretching TE like Coby Fleener or another quality WR like Rueben Randle or Brian Quick. I think some of U are sleeping on how big of a loss Manningham is to the Giants offense as a whole
