  • Brown Providing Depth In Secondary

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...saE8hW5JQpVImL

    Excerpt: "This past offseason, free agent safety Stevie Brown visited the Giants, meeting with team executives, coaches and players. They all made an impression on him of authenticity, camaraderie and singular focus.

    “Everybody seemed genuine and everybody had each other’s back and everybody had one goal, and that was to win,” Brown recalled yesterday. “That’s why I wanted to come here.”

    Brown likely will start his fourth straight game at strong safety for the Giants tomorrow, and he will be looking to stay perfect — Big Blue are 4-0 in Brown’s four starts. The under-the-radar acquisition, designed to provide safety depth behind starters Antrel Rolle and Kenny Phillips, has been superb since replacing the injured Phillips in Week 5. The Giants have beaten the Browns, 49ers and Redskins, and Brown has helped deliver three turnovers during the stretch.

    Against Cleveland, he intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble. Then against Washington, he picked off another pass. Each of his interception returns have been for at least 40 yards.

    “He has really come through for us in a big way,” coach Tom Coughlin said after last Sunday’s 27-23 victory over the Redskins. “Stevie finds the ball or the ball finds him, one way or the other.” Read more...

    A very pleasant surprise
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

        I think referring to him as "depth" understates his ability and impact.
        No one remembers who came in second.

          We might have picked him up for depth but he's playing like a starter! I love surprises like that!

              Yeah Grant did a lot of good things for this team, I think teaching the new guys was his best attribute. He made great plays but now we have a younger, faster guy in here making all sorts of plays! Right place, right time.. thats why you study the film.

                Probably in deference to KP, but i don't disagree

                  can't wait till KP gets healthy it's only gonna boost our secondary even more. The secondary might actually turn into a strong point as the season progresses once everyones good to go.

                    Yep, I kinda knew that but was just standing up for the job he's done for us. "Depth" to me is like DJ Ware. lol

                      I know I sound like a broken record, but one more testament to the "build through the draft" philosophy.

                          Love this guy, going to love him even more when him, Rolle, and KP are all sharing snaps back there.

                          I have a feeling Will Hill is the next man up after those 3, then Sash.

                            I smell 3 safety set. Imagine what Stevie could do if he has KP behind him to cover downfield and take away the deep ball... you would basically have to know where he is at all times. Stevie could basically wind up man-to-man on any receiver at any point, disappear from a play only to show up and intercept the ball at the most random points, and even rush the passer. Really it's only his deep ball coverage that's lacking...

                            I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.
