The great thing about cultivating a good defense in the NFL is that the team does not have to be great at everything. That would be impossible given the complexity of the offenses in this modern game of football. The New York Giants idea of good defense is one creating turnovers, particularly picks. Thus far, fans have enjoyed these picks and forced fumbles at MetLife Stadium, where New York Giants tickets have witnessed a Super Bowl champion making a strong case for a repeat championship.
New York is able to force these picks thanks to great coverage and terrific pressure from the. With these two elements in combination, an opposing quarterback is forced to either throw a less than great pass or take a sack and risk a fumble. What about the run? Well, this is where the Giants offense plays its part. Quarterback Eli Manning is the focal point of a past first strategy, which ranks 6th in the NFL. Manning is throwing the football deep to Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, and Domenik Hixon. Any one of these guys is a deep threat.
The running game is putting up good numbers, but acts only to keep the defense honest enough to continue throttling the opposition through the air. That stated, the trio of Ahmed Bradshaw, Andre Brown, and David Wilson is going to be able to maintain a solid ground game and a good run up the middle close to the goal line.
The second half of the Giants 2012 schedule is perhaps the toughest in the NFL. New York hass to play the sometimes prolific Bengals, the rallying Green Bay Packers, the dangerous rookie duo out of D.C., Drew Brees and the Saints, the undefeated Falcons, the ailing but still solid Ravens, and the pesky Philly Eagles. This makes the trek to the repeat all the more difficult. Despite the severity of the games ahead, New York Giants football tickets are still likely going to be extended into 2013 for some playoff action. Tom Coughlin just may have to keep this team inspired and engineer another run from the wild card position.
