Six players ruled out for Giants - Dallas game

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Sat Sep 19, 2009 7:49 am

DT, Chris Canty- Obviously a blow that he won't be in the rotation and get to play against his former team.

CB, Aaron Ross- It still leaves depth at DB a little shaky. However, Kevin Dockery should be back for this game.

OL, Adam Koets- Reyes was cut so the only legitamate back up center is to slide Rich Seubert over from guard to fill that role.

WR, Hakeem Nicks- Was looking to be a nice addition to the offense. Perhaps coaches will activate other rookie wr, Ramses Barden.

RB/KR, Danny Ware- It will be interesting to see who gets kick return duties and how well they'll do. Gartrell Johnson may find time already as a 3rd RB or special teams.

LB, Clint Sintim- Michael Boley will be back and ready for his first game. Depth still appears to be ok at LB.

I think we will be ok with our current depth

I don't see Reyes' departure as an issue

Koets is the primary backup at center, Seubert is an experienced backup and Boothe has some experience there as well. Don't forget Snee can also play center.

LB depth is fine without Sintim between Pierce,Clark, Boley, Blackburn, Kehl, Wilkinson and Goff - seriously all of these guys have the ability to start and get the job done

DB is shaky, not it is ok if Johnson and Phillips are right to go; CC Brown will very likely see alot more playing time.
CB is a concern, but is pretty solid between Webster, Thomas, Dockery and Johnson

WR, no real problem, we have 7 WRs that can contribute - look to Barden to get his shot.

Ware - disappointing, but not too bad Johnson will get some limited reps, but most if the work will fall to Jacobs and Bradshaw. Kick returners will likely be WRs, perhaps Manningham and Hixon.

Canty is disappointing, but ok. Cofield, Robbins and Bernard are quality starters. I would expect Tuck to get a few more reps inside at DT with Kiwanuka getting a few more snaps. Tollefsen will probably be active as well.

all in all this shows me what a good job Reese and Coughlin have done building depth.
