for people wanting a defensive back name me someone in the giants secondary?.....

Better yet, when was the last time Brady, Rodgers, Manning, or Brees lost a game because they were frustrated by the opponent's awesom coverage?

We've got DT's on the roster now that should be able to do that. Naka has shown what he has, we need S help...

Naka won't see the field at S.

The only problem I had with it was the depth at the position in the draft. We are almost finished with the 3rd round and there's still a few DT's still available. Not many safeties and even fewer corners. We could still get Patton and Rodgers (crossing my fingers) so I'm not as upset about that. I guess its ok. I dunno.

My other thing is that DT's have a pretty big bust rate, and I feel like its a big risk. Could have had Taylor and got a guy who could start immediately in the secondary.

At first I was also confused and a little disappointed, but after thinking about it for a few seconds I realized how strong and young our DL is now and was happy about it.

Think about it, CJ is the old man of the group and he's what, 27? I'm not counting Dwan, he's a 1 or 2 yard rental, not a cornerstone. If Star and Short get even close to their potential, and what we already know we have in CJ and Hardy, and if Alexander continues to develop, I mean wow. Just wow.

Exactly.

You beat those guys by stopping the run and putting the QB on his ass.

If you can't pressure the QB, you could have a defensive backfield full of Players like Revis and you won't win.

Give a good QB time and they will all kill you.

the pick definitely caught me off guard, but after thinking about how well carolina's secondary played the second half of the season without gamble or a strong defensive middle...they're only going to get better.

It's a different philosophy.

Different is good in this case.

For years, teams were scared to death to pressure Brady because guys thought he'd pick them apart.

Reality was that the teams that went after him were the ones that beat him.

The Giants were one of those teams that had the balls to pressure him, and they won two Lombardis doing it.

I'd be completely fine with it if we can get a WR like Patton or Rogers in the 4th.

Can't really be mad at them for address our middle...can't be gashed for 5 yards per all game.
