People seem to forget that 6 TDs this yr have come off 3 pick 6s & 3 STs TDs, so that's 42 pts that the D had nothing to do with. Add in a few that were due to the opponents starting deep in our side of the field due to offensive TOs & the Giants D really has not been bad at all this yr. The Giants D has actually given up less pts than Dallas,Wash & Philly's defenses after 9 games.
Will Hill has made a big difference since he's been back too. Between he and Beason I think they really have this defense flying around like they should. As long as they keep playing like this the offense should be able to get some sort of play action game going and the team might look a little more like a contender.
During the Chicago game the defense got together and talked to Fewell about simplifying the defense... that, along with Beason IMO, has made all the difference. Players aren't consciously rationalizing what they should do and when, they are playing at an instinctive level.
My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...
