  • Rate Tollefson's Play this year?

    How do you guys feel he has played so far this year?

    I saw some one else say that he sucks.

    I was just wondering what fellow Giants fans think of his play?

    I think he is an avg. player that has contributed and played the role he's been asked to pretty well. He's not an all star by any means, probably not even more than an avg. player. But, I still think he's done a good job for the Giants this year considering he was cut and then asked back onto the squad I believe.

    What do you guys think?

    Dave is all heart

    absolute quality depth at DE

    he has played very well

    5 sacks is a career high for him

      He makes some plays and sacks every year. I'm glad that we have him on our team.

        Tolly has always been one of my favorite players because he is just all heart, the dude loves to play the game. I was upset when we didnt' resign him earlier this year right away. He provides great depth at DE

          I agree. good quality depth. nothing more, I wouldnt want him being our full time starter. but as an off the bench, role player, guy brings heart and does a pretty good job.

              For what he is, which is a back up DE, he gets an A.




              As YA said, he's all heart and motor. He isn't spectacular at anything, but adequate (and not much more than that) at both run stopping and pass rushing. We'd be in trouble if we had to rely on him as a starter for an extended time, but he's a great guy to have in the rotation. He's one of those invisible cogs that helps things to keep running.

                Tolly's been doing more than fine

                He's a scrapper, and he hustles, gives quality minutes when he's out there while helping to give JPP & Co a breather and he's invaluable on ST...

                Couldn't have asked more from him

                  I think he is the most underrated player on this defense. I think he can start on most other teams.

                    he plays hard and is a good back up DE.

                      so, this question is to everyone but specifically a poster like YA who is renowned around here because of his high football iq and general knowledge of football especially giants football...


                      would any of you say his play this year "sucks"? is that stance a fair representation of his play this year?

                        You seriously made a thread to try to disprove my stance that I already know is a minority opinion? Congrats man

                            I absolutely would not say he sucks.....

                            the guys is in no way the most talented cat on this line but he plays with more heart than most of the starters

                            he is smart and scrappy.....he will fight you until the echo of the whistle

                            he would start on some teams

                              whats yr stance?...out of curiosity[/quote]I said he's sucked, which was a statement made because of the discussion of the return of Osi.

                              People got mad for saying he's sucked, when I throw that term around loosely, and everyone has their own interpretation on it, so when it becomes a premise of an argument, it really is a no win situation. My reasoning is that from the games I've watched and rewatched, I see a player struggling in run support and pass rushing, but a kid with a great motor and a lot of heart (this can all be read in the thread), and because of that, I even said that a player like Osi, who I regard very highly, if he can't match Tolly's heart and motor, I wouldn't put him in the game.

                              Tolly, I see as a backup caliber player who has had to play way more than anticipated. Because of that, and his snap total (50%), I would call him more then just an overachieving backup this year, and more of a bad starter. Just my stance, and I realize it is in the minority.


                              EDIT: And for the record, I said 'has sucked'.
