    I feel like he'll be sitting on the bench a lot next year when Malcom Jenkins takes his spot in the starting lineup. I know, Jenkins is a corner, but he'll play his way to a point where they'd be foolish not to find a starting place for him. Of course, that could mean moving Woodson back to safety like they did last year, but either scenario means Bigby is SOL.

    That's if we take Jenkins and not some half injured guy that nobody has on their first round board. I'm looking at you Justin Harrell.

    Bigby is one of our strongest hitting safeties. I love our secondary, and believe it to be the strongest in the league, and though Bigby didn't perform great last year... he does have the potential to be a great safety. Woodson belongs at corner with my man Harris, bigby belongs in the backfield with Collins. I am interested to see how Smith does though.

    Bigby is like a mental patient with a hammer... Sure, he'll knock down a lot of people, including our own.
    Jokes aside, if he stays healthy and develops a little more feel for the game (stops trying to guess if it's a run or a pass, and STOPS MAKING SO MUCH PENATLIES) he can be a great SS, he's fast, he has good hands, he tackles very well, just needs more experience and better tutoring...

    Wow. Yeah, uhh, I'm gonna have to, uhh, disagree with you. (Lumberg, Office Space) :rofl:


    A couple of games late last season had me wondering if time has caught up with Woodson & Harris. The def. secondary blew late leads against CAR & HOU. They looked helpless against Schaub. Whether it was just a symptom of injuries being hard to overcome or a lack of heart I don't know. There were far too many breakdowns as the season wound down.

    Yeah, I believe it was injuries. But not only that... When you can't stop the run in an entire game, the def spends too much time on the field. And when you can't run it's the same. So late in games it takes its toll. If we get a decent NT to stop the run and an OLB to rush the passer, believe me, we can be good. Remember, Sam Madison is a lot worse than what we have, and the Giants D were amazing... We were 12th against the pass, and 26th agains the run...
    About the Madden comment, CMON! This is real life. I play madden too, but in madden 09 ocho cinco is the best receiver. Madden stats are interpretation of the real life.

    Lol.. did you forget that we had one of worst RushDs last year?? You absolutely NEED pressure on the QB for man to man to work.. You can't hold down your man for 8 seconds like our D had to all the time last year..

    Regarding the CAR game:
    Steve Smith just made a superhuman catch. There's not a coverage in the world that stops him from catching that ball.

    I will agree that the secondary is very much to blame for the HOU game though. That was bad.

    ATARI BIGBY
    is starting to get his mojo back.
    We need him to take off a few Giants and Bears heads.
    I'll nominate Hakeem Nicks this week, and Devin Hester next week.

    Back again:

    The last time the Packers faced the Giants, Atari Bigby played like the complete safety the Packers thought he would be.


    Bigby was flying all over Lambeau Field hitting blue jerseys and making people think he was going to be the team's strong safety for many years to come.
    "I don't know if that was my best game, but it was a good time for me," Bigby said of the 2007 NFC Championship Game. Too bad it was Al Harris' worst game ever, by far.



    Injuries robbed Bigby of that potential since, and he enters Sunday a backup behind Charlie Peprah. Last week was Bigby's first game back from a hamstring injury and he wound up playing the entire second half after Collins got hurt.


    The one thing that makes Bigby an important asset this week is that he's known for the same physical play the Giants bring each Sunday. He may see a lot of action.
    "We know they're going to bring it, so we have to bring it," he said. "It's crunch time."
