RB2 = Da'Rel Scott (for now)
link - ( New Window )
Crazy  
Joey from GlenCove : 9/4/2013 1:32 pm : link
Before the pats game, I think most of thought he wouldn't even by on the team!
Man

That safety situation sticks out like a sore thumb. Yeah Thomas or Ross could step in if someone goes down but I don't know how they can honestly feel comfortable going into the season with Cooper Taylor as the third safety with no one behind him.
Makes sense from an experience stand point.  
Curtis in VA : 9/4/2013 1:39 pm : link
I guess Cox isn't there yet with the pass blocking?
Myers, Pascoe, Donnell  
Ten Ton Hammer : 9/4/2013 1:41 pm : link
Robinson listed under "Other".

Hmm.
Speaking volumes  
njm : 9/4/2013 1:44 pm : link
Nobody is listed at 2nd team OLT.
Can't believe Williams was beat out by Paysinger.  
Curtis in VA : 9/4/2013 1:44 pm : link
Especially after all the off season stuff with Williams about being a leader and a rock on the defense.

Is he 100%?
Diehl was backup  
section125 : 9/4/2013 1:50 pm : link
LT, probably Pugh right now.
Yeah  
BTNasty : 9/4/2013 1:51 pm : link
I think the issue with Williams is his run defense. Discipline, over pursuing, taking bad angles etc. is why he's not starting. He's still gonna see a lot of playing time in nickel situations with Connor coming off the field so I'm not too worried about it yet.
3 safeties  
Nitro : 9/4/2013 1:52 pm : link
blegh.
Who backs up Rivers  
PeterS : 9/4/2013 2:38 pm : link
at strongside linebacker?
safety looks  
pjcas18 : 9/4/2013 2:40 pm : link
scary
If Scott doesn't perform this week ...  
Beer Man : 9/4/2013 2:44 pm : link
I'm guessing there will be a new backup come next week and Scott will be cut
safety  
csh2z : 9/4/2013 2:46 pm : link
What happens when Will Hill comes back off of suspension? I didn't count but somebody will have to go!
Our front 4 on the Dline  
mrvax : 9/4/2013 3:13 pm : link
looks terrific on paper.
Scary! Expect some changes after this week  
Jupiter : 9/4/2013 3:13 pm : link
I don't remember a time when the Giants seemed so unsettled at so many positions going into the first game.

At safety and LB, if even one player goes down, the Giants will be forced away from some alignments, or someone will be playing completely out of position.

O-Line is almost as scary. It isn't like one of the tight ends can slide over to play tackle.

Definitely NOT "next man up" this week. More like "keep your fingers crossed".
Yikes at safety  
FranknWeezer : 9/4/2013 3:15 pm : link
Blerg at LB.
Ive been excited about Scott since we drafted him  
MarshallOnMontana : 9/4/2013 3:23 pm : link
I am a sucker for rare speed like his. Admittedly he runs comically soft and has ball security concerns, but I have a feeling he can take this opportunity and run with it. He has actually been pretty damn incredibly productive in the pre season over his career, and now we have two backs who can basically take it to the house on any play. His run against chicago in the preseason a couple years ago was incredible. I worry about pass protection without AB, but I think D-Scott can do something with this chance
he (Scott) looked  
pjcas18 : 9/4/2013 3:24 pm : link
slower this off-season to my eyes. Two years ago, he looked like lightning. this year, not so much. not sure why.
IMO J. Williams is still going to get a lot of snaps on defense  
Rsspro : 9/4/2013 3:28 pm : link
each week.. possibly more then some listed "starters"..

he'll most likely be the backup at both outside linebacker spots in addition to how he will be used in certain packages and situations on a fairly common basis..
I paid less attention than usual  
MarshallOnMontana : 9/4/2013 3:29 pm : link
to garbage time of pre season games this year so I can't speak for my own opinion on Scott's speed at this point. But when he is healthy and in shape he is the fastest guy on the team without question
has anyone really looked at the other safeties in our division  
jintz4life : 9/4/2013 3:31 pm : link
Cowboys
Barry Church
Will Allen
JJ Wilcox
Matt Johnson

Eagles
Nate Allen
Patrick Chung
Earl Wolff (R)
Kurt Coleman
David Sims

Redskins
Brendan Merriweather
Baccari Rambo (R)
Reed Doughty
Jordan Pugh

pretty much all the safeties in our division suck
LOL  
pjcas18 : 9/4/2013 3:32 pm : link
I watched all the garbage time. He didn't seem to have the same burst he had two years ago when he first caught on.

If I was comfortable with his blocking I'd move Cox ahead of him on the depth chart. he looked better running the ball.
This safety situation reminds me of 2009  
kmed : 9/4/2013 3:36 pm : link
when Phillips went down and we had that tool CC Brown at safety for much of the season. We need to add another safety at some point.
Scott ran tough in that last game.  
kmed : 9/4/2013 3:37 pm : link
He knew his job was on the line and he ran like it. The Giants are bringing in all of these veteran backs and then say they want to see how Scott does in week 1 before making decisions. They are giving him a shot here, hopefully he runs hard like he did in preseason game 4.
I agree, Scott looked slower this preseason  
Greg from LI : 9/4/2013 3:37 pm : link
.
I know the 100 meter dash  
MarshallOnMontana : 9/4/2013 3:46 pm : link
is pretty much inapplicable to playing football. But to just give a taste of Scott's long speed, when he was a state champion track star he ran a 10.56 100 meter dash. David Wilson also ran track, and his personal official best time in the 100 meters was 11.01

Scott's long speed is rare even by NFL speedster standards
Saying a prayer every night  
Upstate_Giants_fan : 9/4/2013 3:48 pm : link
that our OL stays healthy. The backups mostly scare me.
If Scott merely pass protects and catches  
BlueLou : 9/4/2013 3:50 pm : link
Well, he won't be easily did placed until Brown comes back. Game 1 is huge for him.
displaced  
BlueLou : 9/4/2013 3:52 pm : link
Not did placed
regarding safety..  
Rsspro : 9/4/2013 6:07 pm : link
I think Rolle and Mundy will play well....

after that I think we'll most likely see J. Williams or a corner like Thomas or Ross out there..

and of course they're probably expecting big contributions from W. Hill after the first 4 games..
scott was a skinny kid  
blakjedi : 9/4/2013 6:31 pm : link
He looked bulked up this preseason. He ran very hard and looked great doing it. André brown looked timid... then got hurt.
very uneven roster  
ColHowPepper : 9/4/2013 8:02 pm : link
heavy on the DL and at WR and CB, and perilously thin on OL, at S (Will Hill you jerk!!), mediocre and thin at LB, what else is new?

We are one OT injury away from grounding all the high flying talent JR has amassed--DD as sole backup? And he was the starter before one for the thumb. And it would appear that James (great feet for a big man) Brewer experiment at T has ended, as if there was any doubt, not listed as a T.
meh darell scott is way too linear of a runner  
Neverend : 9/4/2013 8:28 pm : link
has he ever made a move in the open field? hes only very fast in a straight line. granted, pretty damn fast but nevertheless has some limitations as far as the necessary attributes you need to be a good runner in this league

jacquain Williams will still see a lot of snaps at least. but until he starts attacking gaps (not overpursuing, reading the triangle and beating lineman to the hole) hes going to be a situational sub package guy. and I think hell always be that way, some guys develop some guys don't.
Scott has nothing but straight line speed  
chris r : 9/4/2013 8:30 pm : link
no wiggle, no balance, little power. I hope they bring in Dwyer.
don't like  
blue42 : 9/4/2013 9:31 pm : link
Scott one bit.....Runs upright for a big guy and needs perfect blocking to get past the LOS. Poor mans Danny Ware...and that ain't good.
