The DT's there in the second round were NOT upgrades to the young guys we already have.



Good luck getting that logic to fly around here.

I guess two DTs that were taken in the third round do not count as addressing the positon. Oh, okay then. Throw in Kearse, Neblett, and Shirely and there is a world of possibilities. They all should improve over the off-seaon, and if one or more make a leap we are good to go.

There was no need to throw an early round, hell, any pick at DT. But you cannot get that past a select few who believe they know better. This draft upgraded our talent level. Yet, because we did not take a DT high in the draft, some are saying we messed it up big time. You people...

Being infatuated with the Giants D-line is fine, as far as it goes. (Although you are probably jealous of a lot of teams that have a unit that is better than ours.) Just do not expect our D-line to match up with those expectations quite yet. Until a player comes around that can be that guy, we are going to battle with who we have. Most are excited to see how it plays out. Some are in a tiffy because we did not throw a high draft pick at it.

One last thing. In Rivera's D, the LBs have more responsibility than the D-line.

Zod, I love this place. And GOOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't envy any team.

Facts are facts. To stop top QBs a decent DLINE is needed. The Giants have one. The Giants made it a priority. The Giants have two rings. How many rings do the Panthers have?

We will soon see how good Rivera's defense is this year.

Perhaps, but I was speaking from more of a historical perspective, particularly ever since we traded Jenkins. For the record, I didn't like it when we drafted Irvin: considered him a reach.

Wonderful post. Nancy over the years you are one of the few posters that I enjoy reading what you write. Regardless of whether I agree with you or not. (actually cannot recall one where I disagreed)

Great post! I do have one criticism though - you're assuming that the huddle will listen to logic :D

The "ZOMG WE DIDN'T DRAFT POSITION X" comments are made just about every year. People just don't learn.
