Giants Vs. Saints: Pro Football Focus Weekly Game Review

Since we do it every week, I figured I should post the Pro Football Focus numbers from Monday's New York Giants-New Orleans Saints debacle. As you might imagine, the offensive numbers are OK, and the defensive numbers are, well, offensive.

OFFENSE

Eli Manning (+2.7)
Chris Snee (+2.2)
Victor Cruz (+1.7)
Kevin Boothe (+1.2)
Kareem McKenzie (+1.0)
Da'Rel Scott (-1.8)
David Diehl (-3.0)

It has to be a good sign that three offensive linemen were in the plus category. As for David Diehl, we already knew what to expect from him at left tackle.

DEFENSE

The only plus grade of the night went to Spencer Paysinger (+0.1) in seven snaps, that's how badly the defense graded out. Here are the worst of the worst.

Jason Pierre-Paul (-1.2) ... This grade I really don't get. I thought JPP was the only defender worthy of praise at all.
Mark Herzlich (-1.7)
Corey Webster (-2.4)
Dave Tollefson (-2.5) ... I continue to feel for Tollefson, and continue to not understand why an undersized defensive end keeps getting lined up at defensive tackle in the Giants' scheme. He has no chance at that spot.
Chris Canty (-2.5)
Kenny Phillips (-3.0)
Linval Joseph (-3.2)
Antrel Rolle (-5.3)

In its game review, PFF said Canty and Joseph were "basically invisible" and that Rolle was "the biggest weakness" in the pass defense.

It was just plain ugly all the way around.
