    Five Giant Issues: Corey Webster

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-corey-webster

    Excerpt: "There were plenty of things that went wrong in the New York Giants’ title defense in 2012.

    This week we are taking a look at five reasons why the Giants weren’t able to make it back to the playoffs one season after winning it all.

    Monday was the Giants’ pass rush and what went wrong. Today we explore what happened to Corey Webster.

    The numbers: Webster had 58 tackles with 13 passes defensed (down from 17 in 2011) and four interceptions (down from six the season before).

    The reasons: Webster has been considered the Giants’ top cornerback for the past few years, but he struggled this season. His inconsistent play was just one of many reasons why the Giants were so up and down.

    He played in all 16 games, including a few early on with a broken bone in his hand. Webster, though, got off to a rough start in the opening game when he surrendered a 40-yard touchdown to Kevin Ogletree in a loss to the Cowboys.

    Webster wasn’t the only corner that struggled. That 40-yard touchdown was one of 12 receiving touchdowns the Giants surrendered this season of 26 yards or longer. " Read more...

    The CBs in this defense spend too much time looking the backfield. They are big physical guys that should just jam their guy and run with him. Fewell gets too cute with the coverages and guys looking for picks instead of just taking away their guy.

    Agree 100%

    I remember back in 2011, Fewell adjusted his schemes, and they were simplified, and more physical. I have to wonder what the story was in 2012, and whether they need to get back to what worked in late 2011.
