  • Why has our defense sucked?

    I haven't seen a game all season (Just got back from Marine Corps boot camp), but I'm shocked at how bad our defense ranks statistically (28th in yards, 27th in points).

    Whats been the problem? IMO theres wayyyy too much talent on that unit to be performing the way they are.

    It could be a few reasons.




    Injuries, poor scheme, lack of execution...

      Poor Scheme? Has fewell been playing his soft zone bend but don't break defense?...Do you think his days are numbered?

        D-Line is getting inconsistent pressure.

        If they don't get there, we look bad. If they do, we look great.

          The bend but don't break just is not cutting it.




          His 3 man rush is something that needs to be thrown out the window.




          But not all blame should be on Fewell, the players on defense should get a brunt of it.




          Losing Boley in the 49er game seemed to have been a huge loss for our defense, he made the calls on the defense, and was playing all-pro football untill the injury.




          Our defensive line is not getting the pressure, and Fewell is hesitant to bring the blitz for the reason of the secondary woes.

            Seems like that been the case since 2008....You'd think the coaches would've figured that out by now. IMO its time for a new regime, Late season flame outs have sadly become the Giants MO

              Whose been struggling mainly in the secondary? has anyone been specifically targeted by opposing QB's?

                Lost 3 CB's for the year in pre season, lost Prince until just two weeks ago because of a broken foot in his 1st or 2nd practice, lost Austin in pre season, lost Goff pre season, Osi is a 1 trick pony, Tuck has lost the heart to play this year or he is more injured than we know, there is a reason why Grant was still available, Kiwi is a DE playing LB, and the NFL is designed to make it more offensive friendly.

                  Ross has been getting beat. Grant seems to getting ROASTED routinely. Webster is solid in coverage, but has missed some very important tackles that would have gotten the defense off the field.

                  The tackling for the Giants has not been great at all. These dudes need to re-visit fundamentals. Teams using Max protect against the G-Men.

                  I know people don't like Fewell's schemes, but our "D" was getting burned in man quite a bite last week. These guys couldn't do anything right. So what is Fewell supposed to do?Just too many injuries, IMHO.

                        It's actually pretty simple. The players do not respect this coaching staff. Anyone that is halfway decent at reading people can see this. This effects their focus which affects their performance which translates to "Why is our Defense sucking?"

                          There does seem to be a pretty obvious pattern of the players tuning out Coughlin every year around mid season

                            Maybe because they are over-rated!
                            Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!
