Reasons to Celebrate: When eligible, Will Hill shines on the field

Al Bello

Will Hill's play was a bright spot in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

This preseason New York Giants safety Will Hill played very well when he had the opportunity. I looked at a friend and said, "It's a real shame that he's getting himself suspended. When he's on the field, he makes his presence known."

Hill showed that this past Sunday in his return after serving a four-game suspension for performance enhancing drugs. Hill played every defensive snap and make 11 tackles on the day. He shows a ton of flash on the field and puts a ton of pressure.

Hill received a +2.7 grade from Pro Football Focus, which had a lot to say about his performance:

"After an early unnecessary roughness penalty, Hill went on to make 11 tackles, including four stops. Among his plays in the run defense, he made an unblocked tackle for loss and another TFSG. He also got inside of a pull block by Jason Peters early in the second quarter to bring down the rusher. In coverage, only one of his surrendered catches went for a first down, while he came up twice to bring the WR down short of the markers. It wasn't a spectacular performance by any means, but in his first action of the season back from a suspension, Hill provided a solid presence on the back end, something the team has lacked to this point in their miserable start."

Hill needs to learn more discipline ... not on the field but off. The Giants need him more than I think he knows.
