Defensive line..Who should be cut?

Looking at the other teams in the NFC East I must say that their D-Lines are impressive. Something we have lacked since forever. We get no pash rush and something has to change. The addition of Jason Taylor and Andre Carter elevating his game brings optimism. But to be honest. We need some new blood in here.

We must stop our man crushes on guys that aren't producing. IF they can't stop the run or rush the passer effectively they need to go. No matter if they are the topic of man crushes for unknown reasons. What i've seen of Rob Jackson he should make the team. Hopefully Erasmus James can show some flashes of pass rushing ability if he gets in this preseason. In an interveiw he also said he can play against the run also which is yet to be seen... saying that. The guys that have been on this team. Who have been a part of a line that has been at the bottom of the NFL as far as sacks need to go. Because obviosuly they are not producing. If anything needs to be tweaked in the pass rushing schemes on defense. That needs to happen also. But if players are not producing we need to find players who do or give one of these new guys a chance.

The Giants defense line helped them win a Superbowl. Because a pass rusher breathing down your neck is a solid equalizer to a pro-bowl QB..Ask Tom Brady...

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

Who exactly are you talking about? You do realize we gave up less than 3 yards per carry on Sat. night? The D-line played great against the Jets and Bills. The Colts game left alot to be desired but since then they have really picked up.

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

The skins finally did something along the Dline. Lets wait till the regular season gets going to say we have no rush. Jason Taylor is a bit older but still an absolute stud.

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

It's preseason guys. Let's wait until Game 1 when Blache unleashes hell. Jason Taylor is still trying to find his way in our system. Let's be patient. My biggest concern right now is situational play calling on offense. That's been this teams achilles heel over the last 2-3 seasons but that's not the topic so I'll stop there. The Defense is going to be straight nasty this year and it starts with the d-line...collectively as a UNIT!

HAIL!!

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

I guess you're saying Daniels, Griffin, Boschetti, Evans, Golston, Wilson, Alexander, and Montgomery need to go?

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

This is like saying "buy low... sell high".

Yes, if it were that easy everyone would do it. We can get rid of guys that are not producing. That is easy. Now replacing them with better guys... how exactly do we do that with our salary cap? Do you have some defensive studs identified that we can grab?

Maybe what your saying was relevant on draft day. Or maybe its groundhog day....

Wait... I'm supposed buy low, sell high?? I thought it was buy low, get high?? Wow... No wonder all my investments are in the snack food industry.

Seriously, what man-crushes are we talking about? I thought it was confined to Brennan and Mason (ohhh, I am all atwitter at the mention of their names!!). I haven't heard an inordinate amount of praise for anyone along the line. In fact, I thought it was one of the more heavily criticized units in the offseason.

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

I've been watching Taylor and so far I haven't seen much. I would say that even with the addition of Taylor, we are not going to have the pass rush that the Giants do. The Giants just abused a very good Cleveland offensive line last night.

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

Just one note,
on one of the sacks Saturday, where we did blitz, Taylor was being double team, Carter was coming off the edge. This defensive front, once they start playing packages and with gameplans is going to be our best in years. What change, that is plausible, would you want to make?

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

I'm not sure exactly what D line man crushes you are refering to because I haven't heard any. Looking at the past few games, the D line has appeared to step up. Granted you can't expect JT and AC to be in for 2 series and make 37 and a half sacks, but the D line has looked improved. For instance, against the scrubs, Ryan Boschetti knocked down several passes. Last year, that wasn't happening at all. I have to believe that it has to do with an increased interest in the 'Skins D line improving.

Plus its just preseason. Lighten up DMV baby

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

I personally feel good about the way our d-line is performing so far this PREseason.

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

Our DLine is sooo sick. We're gonna steamroll the competition. It's the best DLine in the history of the NFL. All our guys are HoF bound. I predict 100 sacks this year!
