Getting Defensive - New York Giants Edition


  • Teaser Paragraph:

The Carolina Panthers defense faces a tough task on Sunday against Eli Manning and the Giants.

Here are a few things the Panthers can do to hold them at bay.

  • Cover the Middle - The NY Giants bread and butter in the passing game is the center of the field and ten to twenty yards deep. Eli Manning's passing rating here is 137 and accounts for over a third of their total passing yards. With the Carolina Panthers secondary depleted, this will be a tough task. Luke Kuechly will have his hands full dropping back in coverage,
  • Monstarz Inc must get pressure. The Panthers front four has been talking a lot, but aside from Star Lotulelei, have produced little. This week the Panthers need them to apply pressure to the quarterback in their base package. Eli Manning is great at a blitz pickup and is quick to find the open hot route. In fact, Eli's QB rating actually goes up when facing a blitz.
  • What about the run? The Giants have only attempted 33 rushing plays in two games where they have averaged 2.2 yards per carry. This is an abysmal stat for them. The Panthers must minimize the Giants passing attack and force them to run. The front seven of Carolina should have little problem containing the Giants rushing attack.
  • Be Patient - Eli Manning already has 7 interceptions this season. Even with a makeshift secondary, there will be opportunities for turnovers. The Panthers must intercept Manning in this game and give the Panthers offense plenty of opportunities to score.

But in all seriousness, the ends need to show up in a big way

So, Eli's passing over the middle accounts for a 1/3 of all his passing.  Hmmm, I wonder how the other two passing areas are distributed . . .

9 target zones left, center, right

 

 

3 long

 

3 middle

 

3 short

 

the zone in the middle and center, out of 9 zones, accounts for 1/3 of his passing yards.

So in the following article Josh Norman says things will be different this time vs the Giants.

@jjones9: Last year, the Giants embarrassed Carolina with backups. With a banged up secondary, what the Panthers need to do http://t.co/OjVaczLgBz

His dumb ass was making the same mistakes againat the Bills. Josh Norman needs to shut the fug up and learn to play DB.
