Robinson was the Giants' best LBer last year. He has no peer on the team when it comes to pass coverage. We need this kid so I hope he gets healthy.

Vereen was missing, but I think another factor was the collapse of Larry Donnell and the terrible TE corps behind him. Defenses stopped accounting for Giants TEs last year and concentrated on Beckham. Meanwhile, the TEs were so poor at blocking that they couldn't even run on nickel defenses. The new TE crew will do wonders for entire offense.

Everything you have said is spot on for this post and the one prior. I wonder about the RB's in pass protection but I trust Vereen and I hope Perkins gets it. The Fullback position with Shane Smith is getting a lot of snaps and we will get a better idea of where this is going as the preseason progresses. Last year the injuries to both FB's took some steam out of the execution of some plays where the RB failed to block in PP. To add to what you said.

Big Blue Huddle / Michael Bowie Faces Assault Charges
« on: August 19, 2017, 07:53:47 PM »
"Bowie went to his girlfriend's place and got mad at her because he didn't like the way she'd talked to his mother, prosecutors allege.

Bowie grabbed her by the throat, threw her to the ground, punched a hole in the wall and broke two televisions, prosecutors allege."

Big Blue Huddle / Re: Should we be concerned with Weston Richburg?

Yes, the Center will usually take on a double team to help either Guard against a 4/3. I didn't look closely enough as to why he was one on one with the Nose Tackle.

I'm not concerned about one of the top Centers in the league. It's worth a conversation but we need to balance our observations with good and bad and we tend to focus on the negative. That's what fans and the media will do until this Line turns the corner. I remember a very bad Offensive Line in the early to mid 2000's until one day they were the best in the league.

Although I'm looking forward to a much improved line. Richburg and Pugh are not even on my concern radar.

Ths nose tackle in a 3-4 lines up directly on the center, so as Greg said, it's a matter of physics against a bigger, heavier NT. In a 4-3 line, neither of the DTs line up directly over center. Richburg will usually be helping to double team someone.

Also, it was Tim Lewis, not Steve Spagnuolo, that moved Kiwi to linebacker. Spags kept him at SAM in 2007 until he went out injured in Week 10, then moved him back to DE in 2008.

That's not a good grade it's a crappy grade. I replayed the game and had a better grade on him than Live and it's better than that but still not good.
