Good morning, New York Giants fans!
New England under Bill Belichick has traditionally played good defense without a premier pass rushger.
The Patriots favor man coverage more than any other team. Figure the new Giants coaching staff, remotely, will get to work hammering home the concepts of man coverage.
The concepts are simpler than most teams’. How the players are used, on a game-to-game basis, separates the Belichick defense from all others.
“I can tell you this from experience, and understanding the philosophy, it really gives offensive coordinators things to think about,” Banks said. “Guys will come in the game and you don’t know a lot about them, next thing you know, they’re either getting an interception or a sack or something like that. They’re notorious for doing that type of stuff.”
There are still wide receivers on the free agent market who could help the Giants.
For young players who will try to make the roster, the path goes through special teams.
