Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's start your Monday discussing those rumors that Ndamukong Suh, the All-Pro defensive tackle from the Detroit Lions, is ready to bolt the Motor City and that the Big Apple is his preferred destination.

ESPN's Adam Schefter broke that story over the weekend, writing:

Ndamukong Suh likely to bolt Detroit Lions after season - ESPN

A quarter of the way through the season, the Detroit Lions are preparing to lose free-agent-to-be Ndamukong Suh and he is preparing to move on as well, according to league sources.

Suh has told people in the past that he would love to play in New York, and the idea of it has huge appeal to him, league sources said.

Valentine's View: Could Suh, who would be 28 next season, really end up in a Giants' uniform? How good would a pairing of Suh and Johnathan Hankins look in the middle of the Giants' defensive line? The Giants have historically refused to spend big money on the defensive tackle position, instead letting players like Barry Cofield and Linval Joseph leave when they were due big pay days. Suh is a game-changing talent who might make the Giants re-consider that philosophy.

Suh seems like a guy tailor-made for the circus that is Rex Ryan and the New York Jets. Then again, the Jets play a 3-4 and Suh has always played in a 4-3 with the Lions. He might not want to play nose tackle or move outside to a 3-4 defensive end spot. Besides, the Giants did manage to steal Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie out from under the thumb of the Jets this past offseason.

Will Suh end up with the Giants? That's impossible to say. It certainly is a fun possibility to talk about, though.

Quintin Demps: How the veteran safety fared in his first start for the Giants (Film Review) | NJ.com
Overall, despite the questionable penalty Demps received when he knocked out Redskins tight end Niles Paul in the second quarter, he played a solid game. He made a nice read on an end around to Roberts even though he didn't make the tackle. Roberts was forced to step out of bounds after a short gain because of Demps' recognition. He also blitzed three times and was deep in the backfield all three times. But most importantly (considering this was the reason Brown was benched), Demps didn't allow anyone behind him in coverage. An interception and no deep passes allowed made his first start for his new team a smashing success.

For the next seven games, they will face a quarterback capable of carving them up, a stretch that ends four days before Thanksgiving. The air show starts with Matt Ryan and the Falcons and moves on to Nick Foles and the high-flying Eagles, mistake-prone but dangerous Tony Romo, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Romo again.

How have the Giants recovered? ‘The most unheralded group’ | New York Post
"I think having him upright is a credit to our offensive line and the things that they have done to keep him standing up straight and delivering the football and making all of those big plays that we have been making,’’ Victor Cruz said. "Our offensive line is definitely the most unheralded group, but they definitely deserve some credit in these four games so far.’’
