  • Marvin Austin.

    Is it possible that if he stays healthy he can contribute this season? Been supporting him since they drafted him, but starting to have some doubts. Would be nice if he could get it together and use his athletic ability on the field. He may have had to much time off though. He wasn't even hurt this year and when he was activated he didn't look very good.

    im not giving up on him. i knew going in he was gonna take a while bc he missed 2 yrs. the way i see it, he has the brute strength to be a force, and a low center of balance. hes physically built like a poor mans warren sapp. that cant be taken away. game shape, and technique can with time. he needs to get that back. the giants used him some vs philly i saw (if i saw correctly).

    I think he can contribute next year, and be a servicable pass rushing DT. in 2 yrs, if all goes smooth, he could become a starter...but lets not fool ourselves, he could very well end up being released before next season too. im just remaining hopeful cuz thats how i roll

      It was rare that anyone on the D line, young or old, hurt or not, looked very good. Makes me wonder if there was more too it than simply the players not performing.
      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...

        Players aren't motivated and that comes down to the coaches.

          No......he sucks. And I say this as someone who was thrilled when he was drafted.

          I bought the hype, sucker that I am.....he's not NFL material.

          Unfortunately, the Giants REALLY, REALLY, REALLY needed him to step up.....and the drive wasn't there. The dude got paid.

            I think the Giants will pick up and UFA who will outplay Austin next year.

                    I would trade the Giants defense for Alabama's defense right now.

                      Williams benches 600 pounds according to the guys calling the game.

                        Early in the year all I saw was his big butt getting pushed 5 yards off the line of scrimmage. Against Philly in week 17 he looked decent and had 2 tackles in 18 snaps. But he's an injury prone guy playing an injury prone position, so don't hold your breath.

                              not totally.....you can lead a horse to water as they say....
                              The Giants have been very patient with him.....
                              Not a coaching issue IMO
