Position Breakdown: Special Teams

This is the last of our position breakdowns. You can find the others here. While this isn’t really a position, Special Teams is still a very important group on the team. The Giants are great at two thirds of special teams–kicking and punting. After that, the return game is a big question mark.  KICKER: Lawrence […]

Position Breakdown: The Secondary

I am one of the belief that the Giants have a player that is a lock down corner. Which is one of the hardest positions to find in pro footb all, and that lock down corner is Corey Webster. Corey Webster is perhaps one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the league and one of […]

Position Breakdown: Linebackers

Today I’ll be breaking down the line backing  unit for the New York Football Giants (does Berman have that copy righted?)     First though I want to touch on something I’ll touch on in much more detail later, but I’ve becoming increasingly more interested in a website (Footballoutsiders.com) that is like a baseball prospectus […]

Position Breakdown: Defensive Line

We now move over to defense, and start with the defensive line. Many people, myself included, were surprised when the Giants signed Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard in the offseason. Not because they were bad players, but because their defensive line was already really, really good. Those additions add more firepower to what I think […]

Position Breakdown: Offensive Line

Today, we breakdown the offensive line. Remember to check out our other Position Breakdowns here. This is a group lauded for its consistency, and strong play. I think we’ll see more of that this year: David Diehl: There has been a lot of talk of him moving inside to guard, and while I don’t doubt […]

Position Breakdown: Receivers

Today, we break down the receivers, including tight ends. Remember to take a look at our past breakdowns here. The receiving core has been subject to a lot of criticism. Not all of its merited. I think this is an underrated group. Sure, losing Burress and Toomer will hurt. I do think it will lead […]

Position Breakdown: Running Backs

In our next edition of Position Breakdown, we breakdown the running backs and fullbacks. A lot of people think this is a major strength for this team, and I would have to agree. Brandon Jacobs: I truly believe this is the year Jacobs becomes a Pro Bowler. After all, it’s long overdue. Two straight years […]

Position Breakdown: Quarterback

We’re going to be starting a new feature here on GiantsGab. Each day, we will break down every position on the Giants roster. We’ll give strengths, weaknesses, players to watch out for, etc. Today, we start with the Quarterbacks. Eli Manning: For all his early career struggles, you can’t deny that he’s a Super Bowl […]
