  • Defensive conditioning

    Listening to Mike n Mike today and Jaworski commented on how physical the ravens D was late in the season and attributed it fantastic conditioning. I would agree totally. Some have pointed to injuries that plague the giants as a direct link to conditioning. Now I know all teams suffer injuries, its football. But I felt both teams going in to the superbowl have dominating defensive players and it seems the conditioning their coaches put upon them certainly pays off.
    Everyone has the right to be stupid. Some just abuse the privilege.

    I've been on this for a long time.
    The Giants coaches need to do a much better job with this.
    There has to be much more time dedicated to the conditioning of these athletes.
    These nagging injuries that continue from one year to the next cannot be acceptable.
    Thank You!!!

        No matter how often you say it, people will still not believe you.

          defensive conditioning could very well be the problem since the team seems to run out of gas as the season goes on

              yea I dont buy our great conditioning because on the field shows otherwise. That award is probably more like NBA all star game where people just vote the guys they know and you get tracy mcgrady 5 years out of his prime with no knees and averaging 5 ppg getting to play in the all star game

                I have to agree with you. The Giants looked spent against the Falcons and Ravens.

                  if these guys are not motivated enough to keep them selves in top condition there is nothing any trainer or coach can do

                  these are grown men people

                  the NY Giants trainers put them on the best lifting , cardio, and dietary programs ...... custom built for each player

                  if they are winded and out of shape it is their own lazy *** fault for not putting in the extra work

                  any pro athlete that needs his hand held by a coach or trainer will not last long in any league

                          Something is apparently not getting communicated, then.

                          Marvin Austin won't be gracing a Wheaties box anytime soon.

                            I'm not in the lockerroom so I have no idea

                            what I do know is that these players love Jerry

                            and he goes out of his way for them on a daily basis and loves every one of his players like they are family.....some even call him papa Palmieri

                              do you honestly need me to tell you that Marvin Austin is a lazy ***?

                              all the coaching and motivational speaking in the world couldn't get that kid off his backside
