Argument for DE being a need

Post  Big_Pete on Sat Apr 24, 2010 8:52 pm

Here is an argument for DE being a key need

2007: 52 sacks

2008: 42 sacks

2009: 32 sacks

The giant have just 61.5% of the sack total we had 2007 - that is a 20% drop off each year. And this is a defense that relies on getting to the QB. Mostly we had the same players on the DLine in 2009 that we had in 2007.

A lot of excuses can be made, injuries, coaching etc; but the bottom line is that we have to do alot better. talk is cheap, we need results.

also remember that in 2007 we had 4 quality DEs

I really like the JPP pick.

Yes he is raw and will need to work his way into the rotation, but it also gives us 4 DEs that are very capable of getting 10+ sacks.

It will also mean we can rotate alot more to keep our guys healthier and fresher.

I actually think the competition will help bring out the best in all the guys.

I am going to go out on a limb with a very early prediction that we get around 60 sacks this year.

If we get that kind of pressure, we will be a serious contender.

Think about our 4 aces packages, we can use Tuck and Pierre-Paul inside with Umenyiora and Kiwanuka outside...that starts getting very scary, particularly when all our divisional opponents have concerns at LT

I agree Pete. Players that are hurt or not we need to get more production from somewhere.
I'm stoked about the Pierre-Paul and Joseph pick.
We need to start getting more pressure and winning the trenches game.

3 reasons why you cant compare 07 to now:

We had a future Hall of famer playing
Robbins gave us one of his best seasons as a pro.
we had Spags.
