    Will a lack of speed hold the Giants back?

    Considering that Robert Griffin III and Chip Kelly now reside in the NFC East, the division is only getting faster.

    The Giants defense struggled this past season, especially when trying to stop the run. They finished 25th against the rush. While they beat the Redskins once and held them to 17 points in their loss at Washington, Griffin rushed for 89 and 72 yards and Alfred Morris racked up 120 and 124 yards against them in both meetings against the Giants.

    And during an early 19-17 loss to the Eagles, the Giants couldn’t set the edge and allowed LeSean McCoy to rush for 123 yards and Michael Vick to scramble for 49 yards during that game -- the majority of those yards coming in the second half.

    It remains to be seen what Kelly’s offense will be like in the pros, but he will have McCoy and DeSean Jackson’s speed to work with.

    We have speed, we just need players to step up and take the next step like Jacquian Williams.

    this new wave of offense caught everyone off guard!

    i think some d-coordinator(s) will come up with a defense to repel this!

    of course speed will help in everything they do!

    I 100% agree with your your second sentence. Same thing happened when D coordinators figured out Vick, Cam Newton, and the wildcat after a year worth of film on them. The giants have one of the most athletic front 7s in football when we play the nickel D. JPP, Williams, Boley, Rivers etc. Back half could use a little more speed with the exception of Prince.

    We need gnarly dudes in the trenches. Beatty, Osi etc are not gnarly.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    The OL just a couple of years ago had a nastiness to them.

    Beatty was a tremendous run blocker. I don't know where people get this finesse thing with him. He haven't been since his rookie year.
