Giants by the numbers: Snap counts, PFF data

New, comments
Andy Lyons

Here is a quick look at the snap count data and Pro Football Focus scores for the New York Giants in Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. At least one of these will flabbergast many of you.

Snap Counts

Running backs -- Andre Brown (44); Ahmad Bradshaw (23), David Wilson (2) ... Offensive coordinator Kevin gilbride said Monday that Brown has earned more snaps, so we could see that continue. As for Wilson, a comment from running backs coach Jerald Ingram indicates quite simply that the Giants don't trust the rookie to do what he is supposed to do. Inrams's quote? "Yeah he's explosive, but at what cost is he explosive?"

Henry Hynoski played only 12 snaps. You don't need a fullback when you are behind 31-6.

Mathias Kiwanuka played 26 of 59 snaps (44 percent).

Spencer Paysinger played 18 defensive snaps.

Pro Football Focus Scores

Offense (best)

David Baas (+4.4)
David Diehl (+1.3) ... Many of you won't believe it because Diehl did surrender a sack and three hurries, but I re-watched the game after I saw this grade and Diehl was not the biggest problem on the line Sunday. We will talk more about Diehl later in the week, but from a quick look at every Giants' pass play Sunday this gradeis not as insane as you think.
Hakeem Nicks (+1.3)

Offense (worst)

Eli Manning (-1.2)
Ahmad Bradshaw (-1.3)
Bear Pascoe (-1.5)
Victor Cruz (-2.7)

Defense (best)

Chase Blackburn (+3.3)
Osi Umenyiora (+2.2)
Stevie Brown (+1.4)
Prince Amukamara (+1.1)

Defense (worst)

Jayron Hosley (-1.1)
Justin Tuck (-1.4)
Rocky Bernard (-2.6)
