It’s no secret the Giants are struggling, and with the toughest matchups on their schedule still remaining, New York needs to figure out how to start winning again-and fast. With the Falcons, Saints, and Ravens match-ups looming, New York has to get their NASCAR teams back on track if they’re to have any chance of winning those games.
The Giants secondary has been injury-plauged and exposed all season. Corey Webster has regressed, Princed Amukamara has not lived up to the hype, and back-up Stevie Brown is out playing the starters on a weekly basis-so what needs to change?
The Giants front four, most notably, Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, and Jason Pierre-Paul, need to strap it on and play possessed to not only save their secondary from embarrassment, but the team from disaster.
Last season the three combined for 30.5 sacks for the year, this year, although only 11 games in, the trio have totaled just 13.
The engine that drives that defense needs to be firing at all cylinders to take some of the pressure of the secondary. Quarterbacks have gotten too comfortable against the Giants, and it has led to the demise of the team.
New York has never had an overpowering secondary, but because the front four of the Giants could get to the QB so easily in previous years, New York could use its linebackers in coverage, rather than blitzing, leaving more men to play the field.
If New York has any aspirations of making it back to the Super Bowl, they are going to need a super effort from their defensive powerhouses.
