    Actually, the Giants D was very good last yr considering that at least 50 or more pts credited to their D were scored via pick 6s, fumble recoveries for a TD, Cruz fumble/strip in 2nd girls game, punt rt for TDs by Denver & KC, Blocked punt for TD in Eagles game.

    i will say the same thing I said in the thread about us having the best secondary on paper.

    You know at the end of the day or in the morning for some what you can do with paper? Wipe your *** with it cause that's all it's good for. Anyone remember that DREAM TEAM the Eagles out together a few years back. Beat team in the NFL on paper, heck best in history even, lol. We all know how that turned out
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this 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!!!!!

    You all take things a little too much into detail.. ON PAPER we have the best defense in the division BY FAR.. and even off paper we should have the best D in the division.. stop lying to yourselves

    Its an easy trap to fall into. We pick up so many FAs you think "Wow look at all these guys we got from those teams". You read the articles on Giants.com that are all glowing stories welcoming them to the team. FAs often carry an air of being better than a guy we let go. I font know why some people think that, but they do.
    We have picked up some good pieces. If at least step up to expectations, we could be a solid D again. It's fun to think about what we may be, but let's wait and see some play.

    Yeah it's easy for anyone who's brand new to think a brand new defense is the best, but for those of us who been around for a minute, know wayyy better lol We have been surrounded by the biggest FA spenders in our own division and we're the only SB Champions in our division in a long-long time.

    Although, we didn't spend ridiculously like our divisional foes, we are basically, a brand new team, new OC, new way of doing things-1 yr contracts (FA spending). We may not how they play together, but 1 good thing is we have extra time to prepare playing in the Hall of Fame game this year, but it's crazy to believe we are the best anything with so many players having so much too prove.

    Our only proven pass rusher on the defensive line is JPP, whos been injured alot and hasent really made a impact like that big 2011 he had. If we add one or 2 more Dlineman who are real deal players, i'd feel more comfortable with this statement, at least as far as you can being that its only April.lol

    What I like about what Reese did is he didn't absurdly overpay anybody for what they can bring to the table. Whether that holds up when the season starts, we'll see... but I for one am very hopeful...

    On paper it looks solid with fairly good depth all around.
    That been said I hope the fans don't fall in that sense of false security. The mentality of that 2011 Eagles preaseason team is a reminder of how things can go south even before they start. Just ask DRC and he can tell you first hand.
