The New York Giants defense has always had the trademark of being a fierce pass rushing unit, but with the surge of college style offenses invading the NFL, they will have to adapt. The Giants set the mold in beating the traditional drop back passers like Tom Brady, however, rookies Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson are new threats either through the air or the ground. Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross thinks the Giants have the ability and talent to make needed changes: "Stick with what we do. We don’t worry about what other teams do, we draft the best players for us," Ross said last week via NJ.com, during a practice for the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. "And we think from that, we’ll be able to defend those kind of new-wave offenses. Last year, even the team we have now, we think we have the personnel to beat those guys, and we’re just trying to just get better at all positions to further do that. We’re not going to drastically change anything we do, based off of those new offenses." "We saw it a little last year. We knew the Redskins were going to take RG3, and we thought it was important to improve our team speed on defense." "You talk about a defensive lineman who can run, (first-round pick) Fletcher Cox can really run, and obviously Mychal Kendricks was the fastest linebacker at the combine, but also really good players." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • Try moving back to Steve Spagnola as defensive coordinator. The Defense was much better when he was coach. Giants were just lucky and fortunate in 2011
  • Spags defense in New Orleans set aan NFL record for yards allowed this past season with over 7000. No thanks. Fewell only set a Giant record for most yards allowed in a season just below 7000.
