Paysinger, Herzlich Ready To Fill In For Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The potential absence of veteran Jon Beason and rookie Devon Kennard from the New York Giants' linebacking corps Sunday represents not just an opportunity for Spencer Paysinger and Mark Herzlich, but also uncertain prospects against a run-heavy Houston Texans squad. Beason, a dominant force in the middle, injured his big toe after stepping on a Cardinal...

Linebackers becoming a Big Blue strength

There were moments early in their careers — probably too early — when Spencer Paysinger and Jacquian Williams started games at linebacker for the Giants. They made plays, missed plays, stayed on the roster and did not do enough to seize control of a job. Help has arrived — Jon Beason not long into the 2013 season and Jameel McClain in this year’s free agent haul. Just like...

New York Giants Training Camp Preview: Linebackers

It seemed like every year, the linebacking corps was the New York Giants’ greatest weakness heading into the season. This season, for the first time in a long time, the team enters training camp feeling rather confident about the group of linebackers they currently have on the roster. The loss of Jon Beason is a tough one, but he’ll be back in time for the regular season and...

Jon Beason not expected to be ready for week one

Dan Graziano of ESPNNewYork.com doesn’t expect starting middle linebacker Jon Beason to be ready for training camp after suffering a broken foot during OTA’s. Let’s assume, for the sake of this discussion, that middle linebacker Jon Beason does not make it back from his foot injury to play for the New York Giants in Week 1 in Detroit. If that is the case (as seems likely...

Giants thrilled to have pint-sized Holliday on their side

Trindon Holliday, all 5-foot-5 of him, is the shortest player in the NFL. He is the Giants’ Little Big Man, and of course he has carried a chip on his shoulder from the day his own mother wouldn’t let him play football until eighth grade because she feared for his safety. But his new Giants teammates know this much: They would much rather play with him than against him. They...

New York Giants look better at linebacker than they have in years

For the last few years, the New York Giants’ linebacking corps was often cited as the team’s greatest weakness heading into the offseason. And every year, fans were left disappointed by the lack of improvements made. This season, however, the Giants appear comfortable and primed for a big year out of their linebackers. It’s amazing what another year of development could do...

Rebuilding the New York Giants: A look at the linebackers

Linebacker play was synonomous with the New York Giants defense going back to when Sam Huff made life miserable for Jim Brown in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Even in the team’s “Wilderness Years”, the G-men had Brad Van Pelt, Brian Kelley and Harry Carson in the fold. When Lawrence Taylor came along in 1981, the linebacking position was forever transformed. LT was unique in...

Giants Defense Key to Victories

Yes, it comes with a caveat that the last two opponents that Big Blue has faced are the Vikings (who started a newly acquired Josh Freeman a week and a half after signing him) and the Eagles (who sacrificed Mike Vick's hamstring to the football gods and played Matt Barkley as penance) but the Giants defense has looked incredibly good over the past couple of weeks. So good...

Giants punt team can’t get it together

Ask the Giants about their special teams play and plenty of different adjectives come up from awful to infuriating. But the most ubiquitous — and accurate — is embarrassing. Big Blue has surrendered three punt returns for touchdowns while the entire rest of the NFL has allowed just four.
