Damontre Moore Continues to Impress at Giantsí Camp - ( New Window )
Not to be a Negative Nancy,

but Moore has looked like a star against the likes of James Brewer. I'll temper my enthusiasm until he competes against worthy competition.
Moore on one side, effective...

and JPP on the other could have an awful lot to say about our season success. Ayers should be a solid depth/rotational guy but a lot is going to hinge on whether Moore can be an above average starting DE and whether that helps JPP to return to form.
Moore made some plays before getting injured. If he's stronger  
Marty in Albany : 7/27/2014 7:04 pm : link
and smarter this year, then there is no reason not to be optimistic.

If he makes some plays against the Buffalo reserves, he may turn into a good rotational DE for the Giants.
We need this guy

to blossom.. Can't wait to see what he brings to the table this year..
This DL is going to be a real strength  
BillT : 7/27/2014 7:22 pm : link
I think the top eight can all contribute. It may end up being as good as any unit on the team. With the good reports on the LBs as well the D is looking like a true Giants' D.
I hope he stays healthy  
Some Fan : 7/27/2014 8:17 pm : link
If so, I think he has a great year.
It was obvious last year that...  
Torrag : 7/27/2014 9:04 pm : link
...from a strength and conditioning perspective Damontre needed a red shirt year. He got it and now the teams patience should begin to show dividends.
I believe he was 21

last year.

Agreed, but that's why it's more meaningful that it's a teammate and coach praising him, not just the media
That cage

will inspire FEAR in opposing offenses.

Paulie Walnuts : 7/27/2014 11:38 pm : link
is very excited about this defense

Sure, he's beating James Brewer and Troy Kropog like a couple of drums  
Klaatu : 7/28/2014 6:54 am : link
But isn't that what you'd hope he could do, and what he wasn't doing on a consistent basis last year at this time? Jeebus...we knew he wasn't a finished product when he was drafted, but the big questions about him were his maturity and work ethic. Would he put the time and effort in to maximize his potential? So far it looks like he has, and that's a step in the right direction.
Good - if the light bulb goes on for Moore...

...we can move on to complaining about Jay Bromley, Weston Richburg and any other 2014 draft picks who don't play immediately. If all else fails, there's always Ryan Nassib and his clipboard. j/k
X factor  
area junc : 7/28/2014 8:41 am : link
go back and look at the steelers preseason game A last year b4 moore hurt his shoulder. he was killing it vs. their starters. sacked big ben

if he is a pro bowl-type DE and JPP has a big contract year we are in 4 a treat. maybe one of those years aligning where both our DEs r firing at the same time
If he blows up this year, I'll be thrilled  
Ten Ton Hammer : 7/28/2014 8:57 am : link
but they sure seem to be putting a lot of eggs in the Kiwanuka/Moore/Ayers basket.

Erm, aren't those three guys three different metaphorical baskets? They signed Ayers and retained Kiwanuka so that they'll have options if Moore doesn't develop into a solid starter in 2014.
what's his nickname again?  
I Love Clams Casino : 7/28/2014 10:00 am : link
is it DaMonster?
....  
SanFranGiantsFan : 7/28/2014 10:09 am : link
Need somebody-Kiwi, Ayers, or Moore-to generate pressure & keep JPP from getting double teamed. I think JPP is going to have a big season, but he needs help.
I have high hopes for Moore  
GIANTSr01 : 7/28/2014 10:26 am : link
though I think Hankins is the 2nd year DL guy with the potential to be a stud.

They are going to need a pass rush from somewhere. Can JPP consistently provide a rush? Will Moore provide the speed rush off the edge? Can Bromley step up and provide some push up the middle? Hankins flashed as a beast in the run game last year, can he have an LJ like impact as a pass rusher as well? He doesn't need the sacks, but he can't let the QB step up in the pocket comfortably.

I'm fairly confident Jenkins will provide a steady, consistent rush from the DT spot. The rest of the DL is filled with (immense) potential and question marks though.
May very well see Jenkins slide into the DE spot  
Jimmy Googs : 7/28/2014 10:32 am : link
during games if that threesome opposite JPP doesn't generate enough pressure on QB.

Last year in one draft list  
jLefty : 7/28/2014 12:05 pm : link
Da Monster was listed,like, 9th overall.Then he slipped pretty far. Still it was great to get him. Great to hear good things.

You'd think they're different, but not really. Neither Ayers nor Kiwanuka have done much of anything in recent years to distinguish themselves as solid pass rushers. Kiwanuka is coming off a terrible year +, and Ayers, though a solid Run Stopper, has 12 sacks in 72 games.
Let's not forget how young he is  
Jay in Toronto : 7/28/2014 1:27 pm : link
so there was room for physical development, more technique etc.

I am optimistic.
There are just so many "ifs" on this line,  
Doomster : 7/29/2014 8:12 am : link
it's a defensive line that can swing either way.....but I don't think it's going to swing the way BBI wants.....

As far as Moore goes, this season will be his learning experience.....because of the injury, he was limited last year....hopefully, him bulking up does not affect his speed....can only hope he gets better as the season progresses, because for all intents and purposes, he is just a rookie....experienced OT's will provide the lessons....

Of course you don't. What else is new?
