Any idea how the giants offense performs vs a 3-4 or 4-3?

    It seems to me that our defense has been playing better since we have been playing more of a 3-4 ....or is that my imagination?????

    We played in the 3-4 because the last two opponents had a potent running game that we had to shut down.

    I think we'll be back in the 4-3 nickel for the most part in the superbowl.

    We play a mixed 3-4 and 4-3 now. But don't forget the team was built and drafted for playing a 3-4. So we are probably slightly better as a 3-4.

    I imagine we'll see alot of 4-2-5 nickel, with Ninkovich as the 4th down lineman.

    DL: Anderson - Love - Wilfork - Ninkovitch

    LB: Mayo - spikes/deadrick

    would be my guess

    Kevin Gilbride does what he does, generally.

    1) We have to be better than the Giants on every down.
    2) Show them something they haven't seen before. Their offense isn't overly complicated and thrives off of their own predictability.

    Film study will be key.
