Notes from New York Giants’ 20-16 preseason victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers

OFFENSE: With Charles Brown protecting Manning’s back side, it appears that offensive coordinator, Ben McAdoo, is proceeding cautiously in his quest to rebuild the Giants’ “broken offense”. For those making a big deal about Manning’s lack of downfield passing; relax, it makes no sense for McAdoo to put his quarterback in harm’s way, just to make a point in a preseason...

Making the grade: Pro Football Focus ranks Giants’ players performance in HOF Game

Some people associated with pro football have dismissed the grading system being utilized by Pro Football Focus (subscription required), so I thought I would take a moment to see how several players who passed/failed my “eye” test were graded by PFF last week against the Buffalo Bills. It appears to me that the PFF grading/rating system seems pretty accurate based upon what we...

New York Giants have plenty of options at safety

No one was surprised when the Giants released safety Will Hill after his third suspension in as many seasons. His inability to stay out of trouble off the field outweighed the potential Pro Bowl ability he displayed on it. His departure does leave the team lacking depth, but the Giants do have options. Stevie Brown is a more than capable replacement at safety. In 2012, Brown finished...

Steve Gregory could give Giants much-needed depth and experience at safety

With Will Hill gone, the New York Giants could use some more depth at safety. Perhaps Stevie Brown will be able to retake the reins as a starter alongside Antrel Rolle, but who will back him up? Cooper Taylor, Nat Berhe and Kyle Sebetic are all unproven commodities who have little if not nothing to prove they are capable of stepping up and filling in for Brown on occasion or if he...

What to do with Will Hill?

Will Hill is a talented safety. In 2013, Hill stepped in for the injured Stevie Brown and did fairly well in relief for a Giants defense which rounded into form over the course of the season. Unfortunately, Hill reportedly violated the league's substance abuse policy for a third time during the offseason. While Hill is appealing, if he's found guilty, he would likely...

Dan Graziano of believes Stevie Brown will start at safety alongside Antrel Rolle in 2014.

He wasn’t quite as good as the 8 interceptions would suggest because you can’t go just on pure interception totals, but he was still an above average safety on Pro Football Focus, grading out as their...
