  • Is missing Canty a big part of the problem?

    Chris Canty has been a top DT in this league most of his career. Is he the missing piece to this struggling D-line puzzle? As a Giant he has commanded a double team on many plays. Can we be missing his push up the middle? Is that lack of push hurting what our DEs can accomplish? Kuhn is good to give Joseph a blow now and then, but the talent level drops fast when he comes in. Its not a slam on him. He is still trying to learn the game. I know we won't find out what happens until week 7, but I am curious as to what anyone else may think on this.

    Dont think Chris Canty's gonna keep Tuck and Osi from getting whooped all over the field.

    Burier: Yes.

        I think a healthy Canty will help, but Tuck and Osi need to get there **** together either way

          plan and simple yes our d-line has not been the same with out him and he is a great run stopper I guarantee you that if he was playing Sunday night Mccoy wouldn't have all those rushing yards and there would have been way more sacks and pressure on Vick...he would've gotten extreme pressure coming up the middle leaving the edges wide open.

            I would agree with this. The DTs aren't the problem. Having said that, Canty is the best DT we have so I'd like to see him back.

              Absolutely 100%, yes.

              Canty is a beast and a leader. I said we would miss him greatly in the pre season.

                well right now we miss any production from the DEs on the team. I don't hate Canty but I think because we havent seen him in a while and othe guys are playing so poorly there's a tendency to romanticize his play.

                I'll jog everyone's memory.

                Usually bursts through once per game and makes a play in the backfield and this is usually due to blown asignment upfront. Takes playes offs and runs around blockers in pursuit.

                I'm not saying he wouldn't be a welcome help but right now we need Osi and Tuck to either play better or be replaced.

                  Giants hardly blitz so the blockers don't have to worry at all so they can concentrate on double blocking holding etc. Come on DC.

                    Don't get me wrong. I am not romaticizing Canty. But he does take double teams often. Even without big numbers or flashy plays, he usually takes up mutiple blockers and cloggs running lanes. Yes he takes plays off now and then. Few guys on the team are able to say they don't. I'm sure that is another reason why we are struggling. I also completely agree that Tuck and Osi absolutely have to step it up.

                      As far as depth goes, I'd say yeah.. but Bernard and Linval have been beasting for us, they've been the only two consistent people on defense

                        we only gave up 19, we would have all signed up for that going in ... the D has been solid now for 10 quarters straight ... unfortunately, Philly's D did a nice job vs. us in the 1st half and then when they got a bit tired and we got some better protection we got it going, but we left 10 pts. on the field with a 1st and goal INT and the Barden penalty leading to a 1 yard short FG ... that's the NFL for you ... you will never win doing that on the road

                          Yeah I don't really know what's going on. Everyone know how I feel about Tuck but I thought he'd atleast be servicable. And I thought Osi would have made some kind of impact by now.

                          I think we are missing Canty, no question would love to have him back right considering the issues we're having but what Osi and Tuck are doing out there right now makes me sick to my stomach.

                            Well of he and Joseph where such a distraction to teams then he could be the answer. Unfortunately I have a feeling he won't be much of a factor his year. Kind of like Nicks, the are being very quiet. Doesn't look good.
