Publishing issues with this week's paper aside, the most glaring defensive issue discussed in the upcoming NYB article is one that few even mention on the idiot box (maybe on the radio, but there's enough screaming in the world); stopping the tight end:
With the Atlanta Falcons coming to Giants Stadium on November 22nd, there will be plenty of media attention paid to Tony Gonzalez – arguably the best to ever play the position – because of the Giants’ interest in trading for him last season. The former Kansas City Chief is no longer the lone player of note on his team as he joined standout players in quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Michael Turner and wide receiver Roddy White. This doesn’t mean that he won’t be overlooked by the Giants defense as there is plenty of game tape that shows the plight with tight ends.
Say What?!?!: If you have not, peep the latest update on the new Meadowlands project.
