Ranking The Giants: Secondary

We continue to Rank The Giants, with this edition focusing on the secondary. Oh, the secondary. To be fair, this unit had a LOT of injuries. Had they been healthy, who knows, it might have been a strength. But, they didn’t stay healthy, and we were stuck with a patchwork secondary. I’m feeling harsh, so […]

Ross is Out and Inactives:

Giants cornerback Aaron Ross out for tonight’s game against the Redskins. We knew starting cornerback Corey Webster wasn’t going to play but the Giants were holding out hope that Ross (hamstring) would be able to go. With Webster out, either Bruce Johnson or Kevin Dockery will start at cornerback opposite Terrell Thomas. Michael Johnson and […]

Giants Could Be Thin At Defensive Back On Monday:

Per multiple reports both Corey Webster and Aaron Ross sat out of Friday’s practice.  Webster has a sprained knee and Ross’s injury was undisclosed at this point.  With both Ross and Webster not practicing Friday, that would leave Terrell Thomas, Bruce Johnson and Kevin Dockery to work as the top three cornerbacks. That should help […]

Giants Make It Four In A Row And Fall To The Chargers 21-20

I am going to make this write up a short one as the Giants fall to the Chargers by the score of 21-20.  The team played better but showed the same faults that have been haunting them for the past month.  I think it is time for Coughlin to take a look at his coaching […]

Halfway Through: An Assessment of The Giants So Far

We are halfway through the NFL season (crazy, right?). The Giants, after a blazing start, have lost three straight, and are looking for answers. This season has featured some great individual performances. The Professor is in, and he’s not holding back. So, sharpen your pencils, take a deep breath, and here we go. OFFENSIVE MVP: Steve Smith Yeah, […]

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 […]

Anatomy: Bruce Johnson’s Interception

This is perhaps the best case study of “NFL Anatomy of a play” that has ever aired. Watch this video of how the first half pick-6 engineered by AP and executed by Bruce Johnson unfolded. The clip includes footage from behind the sidelines and an in depth look at how Tony Romo was fooled into […]

Tom Coughlin after viewing the tape

ON THE RED ZONE Q: After you looked at the tape, how close were you to putting points on the board? A: Well, we obviously feel that way no matter what. And I told the players that. The effort was good, there are just things that we have to clean up and be able to […]

Talking Points For the Giants/Redskins Game.

We’ll have our “Giants Roundtable” piece later in the week where we will take an indepth look at this past game and preview the Cowboys game so I just want to mention a few things in passing and see what people are feeling. Corey Webster meet Pro Bowl. Pro-Bowl meet Corey Webster. (Not based on […]

Aaron Ross Out

The  Giant receivers might not be an issue Sunday against the Redskins. Covering the Redskins wideouts might. Starting cornerback Aaron Ross is out for the game against Washington. Terrell Thomas will take his place. Also, we know that Kevin Dockery is out as well. That makes undrafted rookie free agent Bruce Johnson the nickel corner. Normally, I’d […]
