    Hankins looks like he can be a real help as long as he keeps his weight under control. They will not be playing him 60-70 plays a game.

      I just hope this new DT rotation helps the DEs get pressure. 6.5 sacks was not a good look for JPP last year.

        Wonder how much webbys awful play factors in to that drop off. Kinda hard to get to the qb when he was always getting torched. I'm in no way layin all the blame on him nor am I giving him the bulk of it. Just sayin I wonder how bad our dline would've looked with 2007 webby back there. Oh yeah rolle sucked too

          It is not a "hit" at all. We have to consider the cash we saved with his salary and how it was redeployed to other players who can help us more. His drop off over the past few years (especially against the run) has been significant.
          No one remembers who came in second.

            The article was off in a few respects. I don't see a health Canty as the difference between our SB run run-defense and last year's abysmal effort. I don't think Hankins is depth. I see him evolving into a guy you want on the field for 3 downs.
            Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

              Agreed, but if you choose what side to run at they will run to Kiwi's side rather than JPP's. The first place they will run is up the middle after watching last year's game tape.

                And we have thsoe two former Eagles' wide bodies to FILL those holes, hopefully.

                        If CWeb comes back to form, and Prince/Hausley continue to develop (I though Prince was playing quite well by the end of the season) our "weakness" at CB may end up a strength.

                            I our D-Line being better this year just from having Jenkins in there over Bernard. Add Hankins in there to stop the run and take on double teams and things SHOULD go much better overall for the Giants Defense. I see Hankins becoming a MAJOR force against the run and as a space eater. He's shown when fresh at Ohio State pure dominance on the line. Lets hope it carries over into the NFL.

                              The hammy would explain a lot. I wonder when he got the hammy. I'm telling you RF C-Web will be back to form next year.

                                I sure hope so, when he's healthy we need him on the field.
