Giants D-line one of the greatest ever?
 
-Jason Pierre-Paul
-Justin Tuck
-Osi Umenyora
-Chris Canty

This is what they play on passing downs...ouch that is disgusting...no need to blitz anyone else

I haven't really ever ranked d-lines of all time though...how good is this line up?...it is just so distructive



Vikes a few years back was maybe better

-Jared Allen
-Pat Williams
-Kevin Williams
-Ray Edwards

that might be one of the greatest ever as well

They're the best I have seen at rushing the passer on passing situations.

1989 Eagles.
Brown, Simmons, and White. 37 sacks for those 3.

Tuck and Osi have been hurt for a large part of the year. If they are healthy, they are certainly as good as any other unit in getting after the QB.

What's the word on Canty's injury?

"I'm a hundred percent," Canty confirmed. "I'm ready to go next week."

Tuck, Osi and JPP actually don't start, it is two of the tree. I actually think it was better in 2007.

That is the nickle front-4...basically 4 DE type linemen in there all at the same time...Canty used to be a 3-4 DE

regular 4-3 downs it is Canty and Linval Joseph as the DTs

and the Giants were still a top-5 D against the run...so I guess Canty and Joseph were really good run stuffers this year.



sick ass d-line all around for sure

The Giants weren't a top 5 run D.. they were 19th in rush yards allowed per game and allowed 4.5 YPC..
