Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

I think some of us may be underestimating the job he's doing, I thought this was a good read:

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Great read- especially when it talks about that guy getting benched...I forget his name.

Seriously though, I love our defense...I think the one posistion we'll have to address next offseason is Defensive tackle. We are weak up the middle. Griffin is not what he was and Montgomery and Golston are serviceable at best. I remember prior to the draft Vinny mentioned DT as probably the number one need. I know GM's love to lie but I think there was noone available that we really liked. We could really use a Kevin Willams type in there to stuff the run and get after the passer.

Blache talks about keeping a lot of things basic but apparently he's pretty cunning. Excellent job by the secondary today. Good article.

I never underestimated Greg Blache.. People dont give him credit for the defense he put together in chicago.. chicago was garbage before that, and now they are a respected D and it was started from what he built.

serviceable at best?? really?? man, those guys are still young dude, and Golston and Monty are jockying for that starting spot. They come to play every game. I actually think they are really good DT's but i do agree we should look to get more yout halong the Dline but Griffin is NOT that old, he's a 9 year vet... but if we did get someone, i want want a Glenn DOrsey type. He needs to be a clear dominant DT like Dorsey was for us to take him, if we cant find a DT like that, we shouldnt draft one in the first 2 rounds..

Good article.

I was doubting Blache, but he's done a great job so far.

Springs doesn't lack on confidence. He should be, when healthy he's one of the best in the game.

Golston continues to impress the heck outta me.

Montgomery on the other hand seems to be in a rut. He needs to get it in gear.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Blache has been pretyt impressive. The defense hasn't given up more than 17 points yet this season, turnovers are up, penalties are down.. Anyone else notice that Leigh Torrance has stepped his game up this year? He was a liability last year, but he's in the right places so far in '08.

Too soon to say I told you so, but I've been saying since February we wouldn't miss Grilliams as much as most people thought we would.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

good article. i did notice that horton had replaced doughty in the line-up late in the game. but i didn't realize blache benched doughty RIGHT after that blown coverage on the fitzgerald td. great move by blache.

i was undecided about whether horton should be made the starter after last weeks game. i am undecided no more. horton is the better player.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

To give up 17 points in back to back weeks to a couple of pretty high powered offenses is pretty impressive. And the Giants 'O' is no slouch either. The 'D' under Blache appears to be in good hands.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Good Article! Thanks for posting that! And I like the move about benching Doughty after he screwed up. Its kind of dissapointing. He played much better last year. But right now Horton is cleary better.

They also got put in a bad situation on the ARE fumble. Blache is doing a great job so far. I honestly thought the defense would play worse than it has cause of the loss of #21. But so far so good. Next week is the real test.
