Giants Secondary Is #1:

Today I was participating in this weeks upcoming roundtable discussion when I realized something.  The Giants very young and thin secondary is currently number one in the NFL. 

Despite having just enough healthy bodies, the Giants are leading the NFL in pass defense, allowing 124.0 passing yards per game. They have five interceptions, one returned for a touchdown and all of them setting up scoring opportunities. And they have allowed only four passes of 20 yards or more in three games, fewest in the NFL. Two of those four passes have been to running backs.

And now for the good news, as I posted previously, here comes Aaron Ross and Kevin Dockery.  The addition of Ross, Dockery and the newly signed Aaron Rouse should help the Giants pass defense continue to thrive. 

It also looks like Jerry Reese has struck again, this time with undrafted free agent Bruce Johnson.  This guy has been all over the field, rarely out of place and has returned one interception to the house.

The future looks bright for the Giants secondary.

    Let’s not forget the pass rush. Though there are not many sacks, that pass rush has MUCH to do with the success of the NYG secondary.

    This team is stacked. Here lies depth, at the heart of the Giants.
