What will Wink Martindale's scheme/adjustments be

M.S. : 9/21/2022 10:06 am

against Dallas now that he is missing his best 2-way defensive lineman Leonard Williams, not to mention the absence of Aaron Robinson, Kayvon Thibodeaux and/or Azeez Ojulari?

Interested in your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
Probably more of the same

Dallas doesn’t have a scary runner, like a Henry or CMC….so I imagine he will be more interested on pressurizing the young QB
are KT and Ojulari out for sure?

They have two good RBs. Zeke isn't what he was, but still plenty good. Tony Pollard is a VG RB that feeds on the Giants. This will be a tough one. I think they take away the run and force Rush to win it.
My guess Ward plays the Williams role  
nygiants16 : 9/21/2022 10:21 am : link
he will move around the dline and his ability to drop off and drop back into coverage will make the defense a little more versatile..

On running downs they will bring in Ellis or Nick Johnson like they normally do and ward will play the DE with Ximines or Thibs on the other..

I think Thibs will play and maybe Azeez, too

Based on Brian Daboll's comments so far, the situation is as clear as mud.
KT

a lot of different blitz looks. Immobile QB without a lot of experience. Make him act fast, and confuse the shit out of him.

It's fucking Dallas, we need every swinging dick in the field.
He wants to make them one dimensional

and it will be interesting to see how he accounts for Williams being out. Agree, put the game in Rush's hand.

I agree this should be the gameplan if you shutdown the run and make Dallas beat you in the passing game you have to believe Rush will make a mistake or 2 at some point.
Also the offense can not have another bad first half, a lead in this game early would help the defense tremendously
Based on Daboll's commentary on the breakdown of big plays w/ Papa

I would say we should plan to factor in Tony Jefferson to a solid degree.
Has anybody seen Ellerson Smith ?  
averagejoe : 9/21/2022 11:34 am : link
Saw his pic on a milk carton the other day .

Thibs and Azeez had minor injuries so we can expect them back in December .

Maybe .

The history of that crack Giants medical staff would imply that they will out at least another 4 weeks!

The broadcasts should have a faux picture of Golladay and Toney on a milk carton for the intros.

Jack Stroud : 9/21/2022 12:39 pm : link
beat them with his arm! They can not let Elliott go foo and rush for 100+ yards! Hopefully the pass rush and/or the coverage stops their passing game too! This game will show if the Giants are for real, in the past the Giants were intimidated and gutless against the cowturds on national tv!

Pollard is the one you have to worry about.

He has to confuse Rush with his exotic fronts. Make him uncomfortable.
If Thibs plays, I think his lack of NFL tape will be a help to us.

He can freelance, and Wink knows: a) what Thibs knows as far as the playbook, and b) what Thibs' strengths are.

Smith is on IR. Scroll down if you don't believe me. It could be why you haven't seen him lately.

Look on the bright side, though. His absence afforded you the opportunity to make a lame joke at his expense.
I read a stat on Zeke Elliot  
KDavies : 9/21/2022 2:04 pm : link
he has 1 missed tackle in 25 rush attempts this season. Nick Chubb leads the league with 18 missed tackles. If Elliot isn't completely washed up, he is darned near it
Daboll will keep them guessing as he should  
Dave on the UWS : 9/21/2022 2:43 pm : link
but I strongly suspect the cupboard won't be as bare as it seems Mon. At least one or both of Thibs and Azeez are likely to play. Leo "might" also (I would give him a week, but that's me). Shep and Toney will probably play, and I would bet its highly likely Wan'dale will play too. All these guys are "close" according to the coach. and they have 4 more days to improve.
ARob needs more time to heal after surgery for sure though.
Trust the DBs  
armstead98 : 9/21/2022 4:09 pm : link
They’ve been great. Stack the box to stop pollard and force Rush to beat us.
