A link about the Giants Secondary vs. GB



I posted this Link in the Asomugha thread but noticed that it's no longer on the front page, so I'm coming here.

Not really trying to make this a Cweb thread at all, but I think as Giants fans we need to be more aware of what is going on with this team, especially on Defense, and collectively we need to realize that there is more involved than just getting 11 guys out there on Defense simultaneously that all have matching uniforms.

 

Reading the Asomugha thread and the comments from readers calling for Cweb to be cut I thought it was appropriate that I happened to stumble across this article at Ultimate NYG.  It talks about the GB game.  A game that I specifically used as an example in defending Cweb.  Yes, I actually used the GB game to defend Cweb. 

 

Now granted Ultimate NYG doesn't hit on all the points I made in the thread (i.e. the Giants were in fact playing PRESS, up until Rolle and KP decided to play like CC Brown and Aaron Rouse and surrender 2 quick TDs).  BUT what they do is break down exactly how many time Fewell has his corners in PRESS and OFF coverage.  They also take the time to point out what EVERYONE already knows and has been known for 3 years now; Corey Webster and Terrell Thomas are PRESS CORNERS.

 

Ok, here is the link.

I know a lot of you guys will probably roll your eyes and ignore it, but remember, these are still the same guys that Ed asked to contribute to the Giants Maple Street Press.  So while their opinions are not the "norm" here, I think it's still a great read....and when they stick to stats, well it's hard to ignore.
