New, comments

Let's look at the snap counts and Pro Football Focus grades for the Giants on Sunday.

Jamie Squire

Let's take another look back at the New York Giants loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Here are the snap counts and Pro Football Focus grades from Sunday.

PFF Grades

Offense

Best
Victor Cruz +0.7

Worst
Brandon Myers -3.7
James Brewer -2.6
Larry Donnell -2.4
Will Beatty -2.0
Jim Cordle -1.9
Justin Pugh -1.5
Kevin Boothe -1.4

Takeaways: Yes, not one offensive player with a score of at least +1.0. That is embarrassing. Despite the negative scores for the offensive linemen, I think we saw some good things from Justin Pugh, James Brewer and Jim Cordle.

Defense

Best
Prince Amukamara +5.3
Mike Patterson +3.2
Trumaine McBride +2.4
Shaun Rogers +2.3
Jason Pierre-Paul +1.9
Cullen Jenkins +1.7

Takeaways: Yes, we should celebrate Prince Amukamara. The Giants' defensive tackles played well. Finally, despite Jason Pierre-Paul's +1.9 he still hasn't made any impact plays.

Snap Counts

Offense
Player Pos. Offense
Kevin Boothe OG 63
Will Beatty OT 63
Justin Pugh OT 63
Jim Cordle C 63
Eli Manning QB 63
Victor Cruz WR 60
Hakeem Nicks WR 60
James Brewer OG 58
Brandon Myers TE 56
Rueben Randle WR 40
David Wilson RB 29
Da'Rel Scott RB 27
Bear Pascoe TE 22
Larry Donnell TE 9
Brandon Jacobs RB 5
Brandon Mosley OG 5
Jerrel Jernigan WR 5
Louis Murphy WR 2

Takeaways: There was an even split at running back with David Wilson getting 29 snaps and Da'Rel Scott 27. I think even the Giants would agree they would like to see Wilson get more snaps, because that would mean they are in the game and not throwing desperately on every down in the fourth quarter.

Defense
Player Pos. Defense
Spencer Paysinger LB 75
Antrel Rolle S 75
Ryan Mundy S 75
Prince Amukamara CB 75
Terrell Thomas CB 66
Mark Herzlich LB 64
Jason Pierre-Paul DE 61
Justin Tuck DE 54
Cullen Jenkins DT 50
Aaron Ross CB 45
Mathias Kiwanuka DE 43
Shaun Rogers DT 36
Linval Joseph DT 35
Mike Patterson DT 29
Trumaine McBride CB 19
Jacquian Williams LB 11
Keith Rivers LB 9
Damontre Moore DE 3

Takeaways: The time is coming when Damontre Moore gets a full load of defensive snaps. That has to happen. In addition, the Giants need to start getting second-round pick Johnathan Hankins some action. That is difficult because the veteran defensive tackles are playing well, but it is necessary.
