    HOW WILL THE GIANTS USE ANTROL ROLLE THIS SEASON?

    "One of the best free agent signings
    that Jerry Reese has made in his time as New York Giants General Manager, has been Antrel Rolle. The Giants clearly needed help at the
    back end of the secondary and when Rolle became available on the free agent
    market, the Giants swooped in and gave him the biggest contract for a safety in the
    league’s history.


    Rolle has been used as a safety and in
    nickel situations moves down to the slot to cover the slot receiver or the tight
    end depending on the team. Deon Grant would
    take his spot in the back end. Grant is now a free agent and it doesn’t seem
    like he’s going to be brought back. The Giants didn’t bring him back last year
    until the middle of training camp
    though with the collection of safeties the Giants have, unless there’s some sort
    of injury or all the rookies aren’t up to par then he could come back.




    The Giants have some quality at corner
    with Corey Webster and the return of Terrell Thomas. Prince Amukamara is now healthy and will participate in
    a full training camp this year and rookie Jayron Hosley
    will get some time as well. Where will Rolle fit in the nickel scheme?




    The answer may depend on the safties as
    well. How will Tyler Sash perform
    in his second year? Will Stevie Brown push him for that spot? Will undrafted
    rookies Will Hill and Janzen Jackson
    step in and take the spot? How Perry Fewell figures this out might be the key to
    defense in the upcoming season."

    Why would someone pose a question and not answer it?

    Rolle did an okay job as nickel corner, I think he will move back to playing the deep half of the field and on occasion, dropping down to cover a TE.

    I am more concerned about the play of Kenny Phillips.

      What concerns you about Kenny Phillips? He is playing in a contract year next season and he will likely kill it. Assuming that, the only concern I have is the foregone conclusion that he wont be in Blue after 2012.

        That makes me sad. I feel he was robbed of 2 years here with that knee injury and is just now reaching his potential. I think he kills it this year as well and shows why we drafted him in the 1st round, just like last year but with an extra step. But with what we are paying Rolle, not sure we can bring him back. Also, not sure we keep T2 after this year either if Hosley and Prince step up. T2 will cost a ton of money after this season and the Giants hold the cards on his future.

          Personally, I think Kenny Phillips showed why he was drafted in the 1st round last season.

            Kenny went under the radar and quietly had a really good season. If he stays healthy this season, he is going to earn a big contract next year. Hopefully it will be with us!!

                I think Rolle will mostly play defense. That's my word and I'm sticking to it.

                  Remember that wild cat throw he had against us when he was with the Cardinals?

                  He can chuck that thing.

                      Would like to see him doing some kind of Monster Role, line up all over the place, blitz, get physical at the line to help screw up timing, kind of like Troy with the Steelers.

                        Obviously our safety, not our quarterback.
