Enemy Intel: Jags vs Giants


"Editor’s Note: Being a part of the Fansided Network, we have the opportunity to interact with the other NFL sites that can give us insight into their teams.  Before each game we will be providing you with a quick questionnaire that the opposition’s site editor has provided us."

This week we interviewed Joe Tufaro the editor at GmenHQ.  I’m not certain if anybody could be more confident about their team:

1. This is the first game since The Super Bowl, will the Giants be out to prove something?  Not much to prove here.  First pre-season game after winning the Super Bowl is not where this team will look to prove anything, if they have anything to prove.  These aren’t the Jets, we go about our business quietly and professionally.2. How do you think the Giants’ draft class do in their first NFL action?  

I think you will see some good things for Rueben Randle and David Wilson.  They will probably play the second quarter after the starters leave.  Also look for guys like Prince Amukamara, and Marvin Austin to step in and show some fight.

3. The Giants don’t tackle in camp, how hungry is the D-line?  How many sacks will they have on Gabbert?

This D-line is so deep that you will see the pressure come from the first unit, as well as the second and third, but they won’t show anything exotic, just straight up 4 on 4 for most of the game.  They might register a sack or two on Gabbert, but that depends on your system more than ours at this point.

4. How will Elite Eli do against one of the better defenses from last year?  

This is a scripted game plan that is designed to let the Giants practice their bread and butter plays.  You will see plenty of running behind our new O-Line and new Tight End, as well as some throws to guys out of the backfield.  I would suspect you might see less of Victor Cruz than you might think also.

5. The Giants are really deep, any second or third stringers who will be out to make a point against the Jags?

The Giants have a very deep linebacking corps, a very talented receiving corps, and a bunch of running backs and return guys.  They will all look to put their stuff on film for the Giants coaches and other teams.  Look for Spencer Paysinger, Jerrell Jernigan, and Ramses Barden to try and make an impact if possible.

Big thanks to Joe for his time, looking forward to the game tonight!
