A: The best defensive backfield in franchise history.
The New York Giants secondary is for real. They tackle, cause fumbles, cover big time receivers, intercept the ball and for the most part (Rolle) go about their business in a true, professional way.
Rolle, Grant, Webster, Phillips and Thomas are putting up some gaudy numbers for a NY Giants team that is not known for great corner and safety play. Check this out: In the top 6 leading tacklers on the team...4 are DB's!
- Thomas - 70 Tackles
- Boley - 67 Tackles
- Rolle - 66 Tackles
- Phillips - 58 Tackles
- Grant - 53 Tackles
So, you want more proof that Perry Fewell is the man? In 2009 the Buffalo Bills drafted Jarius Byrd in the second round. In his rookie season Byrd burst onto the scene with 9 interceptions. Since Perry Fewell left...Byrd had ZERO interceptions!
While the "Big Blue" pass rush sets the tempo for the game...the NY Giants DBs are shutting it down in the back!
