  • Coach Talk: Giunta On Webster

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...nta-on-webster

    Excerpt: "With the Giants off until training camp, we're periodically taking a look at what the coaches are saying about how their positions looked this offseason in OTAs.

    Today, we look at Peter Giunta's thoughts on Corey Webster.


    Cornerback Corey Webster made news in March when he agreed to take a $3 million pay cut on his $7 million salary in order to remain a Giant going into the 2013 season. Secondary/cornerbacks coach Peter Giunta thinks Webster will be motivated to bounce back from a poor 2012.

    "Definitely," Giunta said. "Finishing the way we did, everybody has a real sense of urgency this year to get back to playing the kind of football we did at the end of the 2011 season in that six-game stretch and playing that kind of defense."

    The Giants finished 28th in total pass defense last season. Webster, taken in the second round of the 2005 draft, Prince Amukamara, Jayron Hosley and Aaron Ross should form the backbone of the cornerback corps this season. Terrell Thomas is rehabbing from his third ACL injury, a difficult situation from which to return to top competitive form. " Read more...

    C Toaster is a worry. Hopefully he can get back to some kind of form but I think he'll be targeted this year. I'm sure teams are already drawing up plans to carve him up.

      if there is one huge factor working in his/our favor, its that guys who were terrible last yr like Webster, can go back to 2011 and study their play and see they arent trash. i think guinta nailed it, theres a sense of urgency with how the D performed in 2012 and the desire to get back to that 6 game streak to close 2011, bc the D actually reached levels of dominance. So, these guys should have the belief in their ability to reach said levels again. Just gonna take hard work, which is honestly what I think was the issue last yr. Some guys DID get content on the 2011 SB and didnt put in the same work the following year.

            Im closer to alot of plays then webster and I watch the games at my house. We better hope Ross and hosely can give us something.
            Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

              I knew that he dealt with injuries all year, but didn't know that he had a broken hand.

                        Don't kid yourself. If he could have gotten the $3M somewhere else, he would have.

                          I am shocked you would take that position.

                            I mean, do you really think that he thought that he could get his full salary somewhere else, but took a $3M pay cut because he likes it here so much????

                              I think they told him what he needed to do to stay, and he took their offer. I don't know it he looked elsewhere or how much another team might have been willing to pay him.
