On the Alfred Morris fumble, they ran to his side as well where Osi lost contain. I really would like you to look at the play at 2:32 where Osi is left unblocked, he manages to make it to the backfield untouched then freezes up as the play develops contributing nothing. Thats 3 plays in a 4 minute clip where Osi's terrible run stopping defensive ability can be seen, and this was the first video I looked at to support my argument, and there is a lot more out there.
    LOL, well I cant argue Osi didnt look too impressive here. He bit on that fake hand off bigtime, haha. But in his defense, he was dealing with Trent Williams the whole game. Hes really not half as bad against the run as these forums would lead you to believe.

    Hes made plenty of plays against the run too.

    Yeh these are highlights from his past, but his ability to play the run has been bashed on these boards for years, and for years I have defended my man Osi, and I will continue to do so

    Such haters, haha, its OSI! Sack fumble machine! Cmon, so much negative talk about Osi, sickens me.

    His playing time was limited more than ever this last year, plus he was playing a disheartened season after not getting his new contract like he wanted.

    Are you going to be heartbroken when he has 10 plus sacks next season?

    Can you provide any examples of your claim that TC had a bad relationship with Osi. Like you, I am a big fan of his, and I have never once heard of any issues between them.
    When Coughlin first joined the Giants, Tiki, Osi, and some others didnt like him at all. I tried to dig and find some old excerpts, but I couldnt. Didnt Coughlin also bench Osi a few years back? Osi was not happy about it at all. Honestly since then hes never been an every down DE, because he wasnt allowed to be.

    I am not sure it was Osi. I think it was Strahan and Tiki who were the "malcontents". I don't think Osi started really talking until about two years ago.

    Yeah you're def thinking of Strahan. Stray actually thought he wouldn't finish his career as a Giant because of his feeling towards TC. (Thank God they figured out how to get along). Osi was only a kid when TC got here. But you were right he was benched in 2009 while Bill Sheriden was here. It's no secret that Osi and Sheriden didn't see eye to eye. But then he regained his starting role in 2010 under Fewell and that's when he had 10 strip sacks.

    He was benched in 09 by sheridan. Afterwards he set the record for strip sacks in a season. And then. This season he couldn't get to the qb at all

    He got to the QB just as much as JPP and more than Tuck. Oh yeah, as a part time player.

    It wouldn't surprise me if NE Patriots signed both Freeney and Osi for real cheap.

    i know. BB is good at that
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Cmon man you are going to use a career highlight reel to support your claim that Osi is a good run defender? Keep supporting him till your heart is content but I think I made my case here lol.
