    WILL THE GIANTS STILL USE THEIR THREE SAFETY PACKAGE IN 2012?

    "Although safety Deon Grant was a starter for the New York Giants in last
    year's Super
    Bowl
    , General Manager Jerry
    Reese
    has so far decided not to bring back the 13 year veteran out of Tennessee
    for the upcoming season. Grant was a veteran leader on the field; and even took
    on the role as defensive signal caller while Michael Boley was injured last
    season. However, father time takes his toll on everyone, and DeonGrant is no
    exception.


    With Grant most likely out of the picture, many have speculated that we have
    seen the last of Defensive Coordinator Perry
    Fewell
    'sinnovative three safety packages. However, Fewell disputes this
    notion. He recently stated the following:





    "We are just going to wait and see," Fewell said. "Obviously, we like that
    particular package, and we don't want to lose that package. We think that is
    valuable for us. But with the additions of these linebackers that we have, we
    can be a little bit more creative, we think. And so we just have to find out who
    goes where, who can learn the best, and then we will take it from
    there."




    Last season, the three safety package was used mainly because of a rash of
    injuries in the secondary. With no true nickel corner, the team had no choice
    but to put Antrel
    Rolle
    in man coverage against slot receivers. This necessitated having
    another free safety to put on the field and take on Rolle's traditional pass
    coverage responsibilities. DeonGrant was more than serviceablein filling that
    need.




    This season, however, there is considerable depth in the secondary.
    Cornerback's Prince
    Amukamara
    , Jayron
    Hosley
    , Justin Tryon, and Antwuan Molden are all competing for roster spots;
    and it is more than likely that one of them will be used as a nickel cornerback.
    We could even see one of them moved to safety. Furthermore, do not be surprised
    to see second year player Tyler
    Sash
    take a step forward this season.




    Needless to say, Perry
    Fewell
    will have a lot of options in the defensive backfield throughout the
    2012 campaign. The influx of healthy defensive backs, as well as having a more
    experienced and athletic linebacker core will enable him to be extremely
    creative in utilizing personnel. While it is hard to see how Big Blue would
    still use the three safety look, it has been effective in the past. Therefore,
    look for Perry
    Fewell
    to find creative ways to utilize three safeties at the same time on
    the defensive side of the ball this season; however, do not expect to see it
    used in the same fashion as it was in 2011."

      i think you will see the same package technically, but you might have different players stepping into the Grant role (i.e. Rivers or J. Williams or even T. Thomas ... rather than Sash)

        I agree with the article.

        The Giants were pretty much forced to with the injuries suffered at the CB position last season. This time around, they have a healthy CB core for now. We're still only in June.

        Assuming the CBs stay healthy past preseason...

        I think it'll still be used in some certain situations but definitely not as frequent as last season. I expect the Giants to flex some CB muscle.

          I think it will be much rarer not only due to 3 CB sets but I think we will have 3 LBs on the field more often too.

          It was innovative in that it allowed us to cover up weaknesses but it isn't the ideal set.

            League wide, 56-60% of the snaps last season were 3 WR formations. The remaining 40-44% comprised of all the other possible formations/personel packages.

            If this trend continues, this upcoming season again will have a lot of teams using their Nickle personel package more than their 4-3 or 3-4 or any other set.

              Very flexible package. Flexibility is nice.
