New York Giants: Damontre Moore Should Get More Playing Time
So far during this awful 0-3 start for the New York Giants, the usual mouths of Justin Tuck and Antrel Rolle have been running again about why the Giants have struggled. It’s getting tiring and old. Simply put, while Rolle has played well in the secondary, Tuck has been non-existent yet again. I know he’s the captain of the defense and team, but enough is enough. The Giants must make way for rookie Damontre Moore.
Many people bragged about how great he was in training camp and he showed a lot this preseason. Moore has been on the field, but mainly on special teams. The only player who seems to be getting pressure on the quarterback is Mathias Kiwanuka. Jason Pierre-Paul is battling back from back surgery, so he isn’t going to be great in the early part of the season.
Tuck has been nicked up, but this is the third-consecutive season now in which it seems he’ll be making little to no impact. Tuck is a good run defender, and the Giants need that also. However, Moore can be as well with time, and I believe his upside for rushing the passer at this point is higher than Tuck’s.
Only time will tell what head coach Tom Coughlin will do. Going into Kansas City on Sunday, the Giants need to come out and play smart defensively. Even though the Kansas City Chiefs are 3-0, this game is one the Giants can certainly win. But there’s only so much they should endure before realizing Tuck just isn’t the same effective player as he was back in 2010 and before.
If the Giants want to change their season for the better, they’ll make that move sooner than later.
