Wouldnt it be easier to just add a good pass rusher and a good linebacker? That way you dont have two guys who can do their jobs on every play
Well that's why its called an opinion and I think it would work effectively. Oh and Btw love the profile pic, its from one of my favorite movies :D
Dion Jordan can play that type of role but would have to stand up on third down.
beat me to it.
we have who you are looking for in mathias kiwanuka. von miller's position on the defense is pretty much made just for him, in order to put him in the best possible situation to use his best assets. to say the Giants need a linebacker like von miller is basically just saying we should trade for von miller.
I'm concerned we've narrowly missed the playoffs in the other two years but I'm more concerned about the second half collapses in general, it's happened literally every year under Coughlin and he's clueless about how to fix it.
My bad, i just meant pass rushing linebackers in general
He is just completely oblivious to making adjustments
On defense, I think the biggest issues are at DT and LB, not DE and secondary. They do give up a lot of big plays against both the run and pass and the pass rush isn't nearly as good as last year. I think a lot of that has to do with the LB positions, they are unable to shoot the gaps and aren't very good dropping into coverage to stop those short passes that keep the chains moving, forcing the D to stay on the field way too long. If you can do a better job taking away those quick passes and stopping the run, the QB holds the ball longer and the DEs have time to get to him.
