    CANTY ANCHORS GIANTS' DEFENSE - YET ANOTHER ALL IN SUCCESS STORY

    CANTY ANCHORS GIANTS' DEFENSE

    "The stars are on the outside, but in the middle of the Giants defensive line
    is a behemoth whose grit and hard-nosed mentality enables those stars to run
    wild.


    Chris Canty is that centerpiece, the defensive tackle that stands comfortably
    at 6-foot-7 and carries his 317 pounds in chiseled muscle. With the majority of
    the Giants’ pass-rush acclaim going to the ends — Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and
    Jason Piere-Paul — Canty is the one most responsible for stopping the run and
    eating up interior linemen. That allows the ends to face more one-on-one blocks,
    and allows the linebackers to run free.

    But with Super Bowl XLVI against the Patriots coming next Sunday in
    Indianapolis, Canty is not one to beg for the spotlight.
    “We understand that no man is above the unit and that we all have to work in
    tandem in order to be successful,” Canty said after Friday’s practice. “When one
    guy is successful, we’re all successful.”


    That means part of Canty’s personal success this season lies in Piere-Paul’s
    16 1/2 regular-season sacks, along with Omenyiora’s nine and Tuck’s five.




    “A high tide raises all boats,” Canty said. “That’s how we look at it. We
    work together as a unit to stop the run and to get after the quarterback.”




    Such humbleness is not a surprise for a player who has defined his list of
    head coaches overwhelmingly as disciplinarians. At the University of Virginia,
    Canty played for Al Groh. In 2005, he was drafted to play for Bill Parcells in
    Dallas, which he did until Parcells quit in 2006. After two years under the soft
    Wade Phillips, Canty moved on to the Giants, where he has thrived under coach
    Tom Coughlin.




    “The expectations I had from Coach Coughlin were pretty clear from the
    previous coaches I’d had,” Canty said. “I knew it was a tremendous opportunity
    to join a great defensive line. I knew he was going to be a coach that was
    strong on discipline, hard work, accountability. Those things pretty much held
    true when I got here.”




    Canty missed the Giants’ magical Super Bowl win over the Patriots, but after
    playing them twice already this season — in the preseason and in a 24-20 Giants’
    win on Nov. 6 — Canty is ready to create his own memories."

    Yes, he has stepped up his game. The defensive tackle play is the key.
