Giants Pro Football Focus Review, Week 3

The Pro Football Focus grades for the New York Giants in their 29-16 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles are in early this week, so let's go through them.

Offense

Ahmad Bradshaw (+4.5), Eli Manning (+2.1), Brandon Jacobs (+1.7) and Chris Snee (+1.5) came away with the best grades. The worst grades went to both Giants' offensive tackles. Will Beatty came away with an awful -3.3, allowing a sack and two pressures in his matchup with Trent Cole. On the other side, Kareem McKenzie continued his poor start to the season with a -1.8 score.

For the season, Bradshaw (+6.5), Manning (+6.4) and Snee (+5.5) have the best scores. Beatty (-1.9) has the worst. Considering that David Diehl was -22.7 for the entire season a year ago Beatty is still an upgrade. He has had two good games and one bad one.

Defense

The oft-criticized Aaron Ross came away with two interceptions on Sunday, and the highest defensive grade among all Giants (+3.6). Michael Boley (+1.8), Rocky Bernard (+1.6) and Kenny Phillips (+1.5) also scored well.

The worst grades went to Dave Tollefson (-3.8) and Antrel Rolle (-3.0). Rolle last 0.9 points for his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

My biggest bone to pick with PFF this week is the -0.2 grade given to Jacquian Williams. I have no idea how Williams, who played a terrific game with nine tackles, can grade negatively.

For the season, Phillips is now +8.1 and the increasingly impressive Bernard is +5.6.

Special Teams

Lawrence Tynes graded at +0.9 and Steve Weatherford at -0.2. I don't particularly care. Tynes put a couple of kicks deep for touchbacks, and Weatherford had one bad punt -- but at least it went out of bounds, so who cares?
