  • Tom Coughlin: Defense is a concern


    http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/10/8...giants-defense

    Excerpt: "
    New York Giants' coach Tom Coughlin admitted Monday that he is concerned about the team's defense. The Giants did not have a sack ofCleveland Browns' quarterback Brandon Weeden Sunday, and after the Browns had scored on their first three possessions the Giants had given up scores on eight straight possessions.

    Cleveland running back Trent Richardson had 81 yards on 17 carries one week after LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles gashed the Giants for 123 yards rushing.The Giants' vaunted pass rush has generated only eight sacks in five games, 24th in the league.

    "Strategy or not it (lack of pass rush) has definitely slowed us down a little bit. We've gotta look hard at how we can get this thing resolved and get some more pressure on the quarterback. We're gonna try to do that," Coughlin said." Read more...

      Could this be the week the d-line wakes up? I hope so...

        I am glad to see that they are going to put a bigger focus on that this week. The lack of pass rush was a concern but the missed tackles yesterday was even more disconcerting.
        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...

          The 49ers OL might make them look silly unless they get their act together. Or maybe they just don't have what it takes? Is it injuries? Carl Banks said today on the radio it's time to stop making excuses for why there is a lack of a pass rush.

            Well, I'm glad he's concerned. So am I. What say we fix it?
            I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

              Less excuses, more playing! They need to play like they want it or they will eventually be replaced. Osi will be gone after this year and I don't see him getting anywhere near the money he is expecting.. We gave him more this year because he was complaining, then he comes out and plays like trash.

                    I don't even care about the sacks, can we please get some tackles in the backfield for some negative yardage on a consistent basis please. Can we please quit putting Osi in on running situations? Hell put Tuck at tackle and move Kiwi to DE. Just don't let Osi play unless it's on obvious passing downs.

                      How do they fix it though? It seems like they are happy just making excuses. The injuries don't help matters any, but they can't rely on getting any better in that department this week either. That 49ers OL bullies teams. They way they looked yesterday against the Browns this DL might be in for a long hard day. I hope Eli and the offense can score 80 next week.

                        I just want to see pressure. They have to change their technique, because what they are doing right now isn't working, and it hasn't been working.

                            If he is still with us it might be time to turn Ojomo loose on a few plays

                              Last time Coughlin spoke out publically about the lack of QB pressure and the overall defensive play, Fewell woke up and got more creative and more aggressive. Expect it to happen again starting this Sunday.
