Giants at Panthers, Week 3: Snap counts, PFF grades

Aaron Ross is one of the few Giants who played well Sunday vs. Carolina. - Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

A look at the PFF grades and total snap counts for the Giants on Sunday vs. the Carolina Panthers.

Let's try something a little different this week. Let's combine the weekly snap counts data and Pro Football Focus grades for the New York Giants into a single post.

PFF Grades

Offense

Best
David Bass (+1.2)

Baas was the only Giant to score above +1.0 on offense.

Worst
Justin Pugh (-5.5)
Will Beatty (-3.5)
Chris Snee (-3.0)
Eli Manning (-2.4)

Pugh ended up being responsible for two sacks, two hits on Manning and five hurries. Beatty's -3.5 is his second awful score in three weeks.

Defense

Best
Aaron Ross (+2.5)
Keith Rivers (+1.7)
Spencer Paysinger (+1.6)
Mathias Kiwanuka (+1.3)
Ryan Mundy (+1.1)

Worst
Shaun Rogers (-3.9)
Mark Herzlich (-3.7)
Jacquian Williams (-2.9)
Justin Tuck (-2.4)
Mike Patterson (-1.1)

Two questions. First, should Ross be starting instead of Corey Webster? Second, if Rogers and Patterson keep playing like that how long before second-round pick Johnathan Hankins gets a suit on Sundays?

On offense, the Giants are -31.1 overall as a team, fourth-worst in the league. On defense, they are -5-1, 21st overall. On special teams, the Giants -6.1 score is 28th in the league.
