We need building blocks on the defense....

George from PA : 9/9/2019 6:25 am
Like the improvement of the OL, tells me we are close with offense. We can almost blame the play calling being too cute. Just feed it to Barkley. Engram is a great weapon and with Tate back....they should be solid.

Add another weapon, even dangerous

.......................

Is it a learning curb or lack of talent for the defense?

The run defense was decent. The 3 DL did their job...dallas had trouble with them all game but the Lbers could not transition from run to pass. Seemed lost and unfortunately invisible.

Was Baker just a bad choice or is it a learning curve.....my concern is his long speed is just not good enough for the nfl. He seemed to be exposed...at least Ballentine and Beal have the speed needed.

Combine Hamilton and Baker with The safeties that were no where to be found....wtf. that display sicken me.

Peppers has poor instinct but at least he has talent. Someone suggested closer to the line which makes sense, put him in Davis spot. Antoine can not be on the field, its like he is in sand. This is where the coaches frightens me....do they not see it? The speed of dallas defense compared to our was eyeopening.

I hear the defense is young, but are they young and bad?

I saw 5 players on defense with a future...Hill, Tommilson, Lawrence with Carter and Peppers.....
We lack talent

Do we have any legit plus players besides Barkley? Despite the hype around here, that remains to be seen. Dallas and Philly are loaded with top end tallest. We have one guy as of now. And about that line, we have one guy drafted by NYG. Only s matter of time before our supposed rebuilt line starts looking old.
Bethea

was supposed to be the veteran that would help the rookies, but he looked like he was one of them. I could have run free against that secondary.
op mentioned 5 players

connelly baker ballentine have to get better and contribute. So does Ximines. Hope Beal can play as well. A lot of young players here. Another stud pass rusher would help, in fact lbs in general would be nice to emphasize.
Baker will be fine

He keep looking inside at the QB which he got away with in the SEC but learned yesterday recovery to the outside is different in the NFL.
He will watch film and he will learn to not peak inside.
Bethea and Peppers are what they are
Bethea does not have the speed to play over the top anymore and Peppers is still jumping routes and is not the same presents against the run Collins was.
No one fears Peppers coming up and laying the wood
BTW they had 1 hit and 2 hurries on Dak yesterday  
larryflower37 : 9/9/2019 9:24 am : link
On multiple times they sent 6 or 7 leaving those corners on islands.
Dak stayed clean and had all the time in the world.
A lot of young talent

on the team. They just need experience and time to see if they're are up to the task. The secondary is young and will need time and patience something us fans dont have.
First time in the 40 years I've been a Giant fan...

...not a SINGLE impact player in the front 7.

It's bizarre and disheartening - you need at LEAST 2 of those players to be able to keep offenses off balance.
we have a very good

front 3. Could use a pass rusher or 2 at LB.

Secondary - youngsters growing pains

They need difference makers

especially at LB where the scheme is fueled. Their hopeful choices are ordinary so far.

Need a FS, depth all around.
Next year draft  
hassan : 9/11/2019 9:41 pm : link
LB, Edge, WR, S, OL would be my personal priorities :)

But I would draft 5 more defenders and 3 more offense players for 8 picks :)

About 3 players at LB ......

We had building blocks

...DG jettisoned them.
