  • Is Perry Fewell just relying on the talent?

    Because his defensive scheme is not very impressive. Weeden had all day to throw and I ddin't see many blitzes, I don't understand this approach. Was Fewell anticipating a lot of screens? But the defense wasn't good at stopping screens either. Fewell never goes after the QB on 3rd and long situations and it has burned the defense numerous times already. If Fewell keeps showing his inability to adjust to the game time situations accordingly, and keeps going with a very conservative approach of his, it's going to be a long day vs. 49ers.

    It's Fewell's technique, and the pass HUSH being outplayed.
    Mood: WOOF!

      Fewell is what he is...a pretty average DC

        I think a big part of it is not the talent on the field but the talent that isn't. Losing Canty and Rocky has hurt the D-line, not just in talent but because they can't rotate the DT position and keep the players fresh. The secondary has been hammered with injuries as well. It doesn't help that offenses are going with quick passes and run plays designed to take advantage of aggressive play at the DE position. In my opinion, this is where the lackluster play from the LB positions hurt.

        That being said, I agree that PF could be a little more aggressive to compensate for the injuries rather than being so conservative. If nothing else it might light a fire in the front 7 and get them to swarm the ball more. Right now I feel like they are always back on their heels, reacting to the play rather than attacking it.
        My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

          Not very creative, but then again,
          when is the last time we had the same complete
          defense for even 2 weeks in a row.

            It is especially rather perplexing when we are up 3 scores.
            Our 3 man rush has got to be 15 to 1 against our favor.

              One word....Spags. How's his resume' since leaving the Giants?
              I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                Yes I'm tired of seeing our front four with no blitz help against a max protect on 3rd and long... Fewell sucks

                  Max protect against a 4 man rush means the giants have 7 guys covering 2 receviers, and you think this is a bad matchup for the giants?

                    Five games into the season, the Giants' defense still has only eight sacks overall. Asked if he was concerned, Tuck said, "Yes, I am. Guys are figuring us out. So we've got to do some different things."

                    May have been a subtle shot at Fewell

                      Carl Banks said on the radio that its time for the players to stop talking about how teams are scheming against them and do something about it. He said they need to get together, just the players, and watch every 3rd down play this season o see what's happening and fix it.

                        Tuck said the same in his post game. No excuses and that they have to get better and find out through watching film what it will take to do that.

                          Let's hope they start doing exactly that... the mark of a great defense isn't how well you play when everything goes your way, it's how you adjust when your weakness is exposed.

                            talent like TT, K-Phil, Hosley, Bernard, Canty and Rivers??

                            oh wait, all those guys are injured, hmmm i wonder if that hurts us on D????

                            and even with all those injuries we are still only giving up a little over 20 points per game

                            do we need to get better?, certainly, but based on last season there is absolutely no reason to think we won't get better

                            and one good example is that our DEs have realized what QBs are trying to do and we are starting to knock passes down in bunches ... if they are going to throw the ball right away to avoid pressure, then they are going to get those passes batted back in their faces

                            and even if we don't get better ... even if we continue to yield 20 points per game ... do you really believe our O will score less than 20 more often than it scores more than 20? ... if we have to win games with scores like 31-24 ... well im fine with that ... it's all about Ws

                              It's predicated on the front 4 getting pressure on the QB with a sprinkle of Blitzes. Right now I wouldn't say its working well; why is another issue. The players say its individual lapses not sure if its the scheme; wonder if we just don't have the personnel to successfully execute it!
