    Giants Expose Corey Webster's Failing To Cover For Misled Teammates

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1201005

    Excerpt: "Corey Websterdidn't blow his assignment. But he didn’t help out his mates in the Giants secondary, either.

    That was the message that secondary coach Peter Guinta had on Monday, one day after the Giants’ 31-13 loss to the Bengals. Webster had been a key figure in the game’s opening touchdown, a 56-yard reception by Bengals star A.J. Green.

    Webster appeared to let Green run right past him at the Giants’ 40, as if he expected help. “Corey did what he was supposed to do,” Guinta said.

    Thing is, Guinta added, Webster should have abandoned his assignment and stayed with Green when he realized he didn’t have help. Another player, whom Guinta declined to name, was indeed supposed to pick up Green deep downfield, but most of the Giants’ secondary had been fooled by a play-action fake.

    Webster, the veteran in a Giants secondary that includes second-year man Prince Amukamara, rookie Jayron Hosley and journeyman safety Stevie Brown, should have covered for his mates. Webster initially called the play a “miscommunication.” Guinta agreed but still expected more from his top corner.

    “Corey’s thing is he should have kind of realized what was going on,” Guinta said, “and being the veteran guy, trying to protect the other guys, he should have been a little more patient .” Read more...

    Well if you want to go by a Super Bowl winning coaches opinion Brown was the one that was supposed to be there.

    Why would anyone here believe what any of the coaches say? We, of course, have far more credibility as fans

    I don't know if calling out the guy who knew his assignment is such a good thing. Yes, he could have seen that someone was blowing the coverage and hung with the guy going deep, but he thought his safety had that coverage and probably had someone heading towards his zone and did not take a peek to make sure the other guy was doing his job. I agree that he could have seen this and stayed with the guy that represented a greater threat, but if you are going to call someone out, you really should call-out the guy that blew his assignment.

    You know what was even more pathetic then letting AJ Green blow right by you deep after you realize no one was there to cover him? CWebs half *** jog to catch up to him. CWeb has been a fav of mine for a few years, but it seems like he really doesnt give a crap anymore. Ok, the safety should of been there, but he wasn't! So you just would rather let AJ score a long Td then try to cover him yourself? Give me a break. Then after the ball was thrown, CWeb half *** jogs to try to "get" Green like saying "Im no going to hustle to fix someone elses problem." Thats how I saw it anyway.

    Right after that opening drive, I knew it was over.

    I think some players on our team are content with 2 SB rings. It may be time to reload.

    in all truth

    it does not matter who blew a coverage and who should have covered the guys tail who blew the coverage

    it was blatantly evident from the opening whistle that this team came out sleep walking and that the Bengals were ready for a rumble

    if Locklear was in for Diehl
    if Cruz caught that pass
    if Brown didn't bite on play action
    if Eli took a couple sacks
    if Bradshaw holds on to the ball
    if they miraculously learned to tackle properly

    the Giants were still losing sunday afternoon

    because with no heart comes no wins

    and the NY Giants came out flat as Stanley
