New Orleans Saints Vs NY Giants
November 28, 2011 by staff
New Orleans Saints Vs NY Giants, Tonight the struggling New York Giants travel back to Eli Manning’s hometown to stop a two game slid and a potential fourth straight season-ending collapse. The problem is they are running into a buzz saw with the New Orleans Saints at home.
The Giants really, really need this game if they have any aspirations to make the playoffs, the Saints with losses by the Bears and Lions are probably all set to make the playoffs at least as a wild card but they are going to be playing hard to win the division.
There are some intriguing storylines here are the ones I’m watching, and of course as a site that is dedicated mostly to draft prospects I’ll be focusing on the younger guys.
Mark Herzlich will likely to get the start because he was more impressive in his first real snaps on defense than Greg Jones had been at any point all season. I’m sure the Giants will take notice, Perry Fewell praised Herzlich for his performance vs the Eagles. Now Herzlich made his fair share of mistakes in pass coverage, but really showed something in run coverage unlike Jones he can play better in traffic because he’s longer and did a better job of shedding blocks. Neither is a terror sideline to sideline and neither has the speed to cover Darren Sproles, but he might be in a few packages with Sproles in and how he does to contain and stop Sproles is huge.
Jacquian Williams on the other hand is not as instinctive or as strong as Hezlich, but he can fly. He is plus in coverage (just working on the instincts and technical parts of coverage). Williams played a lot in the nickel coverage before Michael Boley was hurt, so he’ll be seeing even more time tonight. His play is paramount to how the Giants defense does tonight.
