Big Blue View Q&A

EDITOR'S NOTE 11:00PM: It's preview time again.  Thanks to Ed for swinging by to answer our questions.  I'm answering questions over at Big Blue View and I encourage you guys to help answer questions if you'd like.  I'd say no trash-talking, but we don't exactly have a lot of smack to talk.  But, nonetheless, please be respectful over at Big Blue View.

This is Ed from the Giants blog Big Blue View, and I am here at 'Fooch's' request to drop a little wisdom about the Giants and answer questions if you have any.

Let's get right to it.

Offense

The Bruce Springsteen song 'Born to Run' is an appropriate moniker for the Giants offense. With 265-pound Brandon Jacobs, backed up by Derrick Ward and Ahmad Bradshaw, the Giants are built to run the football. Eli Manning is coming off a bad three-interception game Monday against Cleveland, but has been terrific most of the season. Eli has an embarrassment of riches in terms of weapons to throw to, led by Plaxico Burress. The Giants also have a workmanlike, experienced offensive line in front of him.

Defense

The Giants are all about the pass rush, and that pass rush has sometimes been missing in action this season. Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka are terrific defensive ends, but the Giants miss Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora. When they can't get to the passer, the Giants are vulnerable. They have also been just so-so against the run.

Special Teams

John Carney has been perfect this season, but he still might get replaced as placekicker by the rehabbing Lawrence Tynes. Jeff Feagles is the best directional punter in the business. As for return guys, Domenik Hixon is a dangerous punt return and Ahmad Bradshaw is a quality kickoff returner.

Feel free to fire any questions or comments at me that you want. Keep it friendly, and I'll be happy to have a conversation with you.
