Ranking The Giants: Defensive Line

We continue to Rank The Giants, and today, we Rank the Defensive Line. For years, the defensive line has been the staple of the Giants. But, for whatever reason, this year was different. Injuries played a role, for sure, but the lack of a consistent pass rush hurt the Giants. JUSTIN TUCK: Tuck played most […]

But, with injuries to Chris Canty, Aaron Ross, Jay Alford and many more recovering from injury, it’s time to know what this depth we’ve all touted is made of. Defensive […]

Robbins, Boley and Bernard Placed On The PUP:

The New York Giants placed linebacker Michael Boley and defensive tackles Fred Robbins and Rocky Bernard on the active physically unable to perform list on Sunday. The moves with Boley (hip) and Robbins (knee) were expected because the two had undergone surgery. Bernard, who like Boley signed with the Giants as a free agent in […]

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 […]
