Our numbers with KP and without KP are staggering...
Found this on BBI.
I'm not sure KP is the difference, but... Big Blue Blogger : 5:20 pm
...the results suggest that he has been pretty important:
Giants with KP, 2009-2012:
Giants without KP, 2009-2012:
Games where he started, but wasn't around long enough to figure in the outcome, are counted in the "without" category.
Quick, let's fax this over and over to Giants HQ
lol, I'll get right on it !

And yet some people on here think he's overrated and we should let him go. Does he come up with a lot of picks like Brown did this year? Nope. But he doesn't allow big plays like Brown and the rest of the secondary.
I think we should keep him but we should try to negotiate something easier on the cap for us. KP has good synergy in our 3 safety set, since he can cover deep really well in that more FS capacity, Stevie can ball hawk it like nobody's business once that deep cover is taken care of, and Rolle/Hill can play nickel corner and play in the box.
We're definitely keeping Stevie and Hill going forward. If I was forced to choose between KP and Rolle, I'd rather keep KP, as we don't have a safety with the same skill set on our roster.
There's no doubt KP is a stud when healthy. But do you shell out the big bucks for a guy that has missed that many games in 5 years? That's the question the front office will have to answer.

I guess but he has been a " perfect fixure " on this D for quite a while, he brings that physical style of play so few players can brings every sunday. The down side ? He's not physically the same with all those injuries he has suffered in his tenure with the Giants. Add that he's often sidelined hurt making a tough decision for FO in signing him to a long term deal, taking in count the young Stevie Brown and Will Hill already contibuting on D. If it was up to me I would make it happen finding a way to lock him up to a 4 year deal but again it seems difficult with all the safeties on the roster and the actual cap.

He is a great player but how can you pay a man that has missed 27 games in 5 years?
