    Article from New Jersey Star Ledger:

    An NFL scout who has watched tape of the Giants' first two games agreed to assess the Giants defense on condition of anonymity because evaluations aren't supposed to be discussed publicly. Here's his take:

    "I don't blame 'Spags' (defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo). I like what he's doing and I like his style. They just don't have guys that can cover or even line up. I mean (LB Mathias) Kiwanuka has no idea where to be. And it's not his fault because he probably wanted to keep playing end.

    "Spags had them playing zone -- and they got beat short. So he went man against the Packers -- and got beat deep. So he went zone again -- and got beat short. He's probably thinking right now it's better to play zone and keep the game in reach rather than blitz and have the other team hit big plays. So he's not playing the true Philly defense. If he does, with this personnel, they'll get blown out every game."

    "Justin Tuck and Aaron Ross are two guys that should be starting because they look like they want to play. Having these guys on the bench behind veterans who look uninterested at times is sending the wrong message. Now, guys are playing like they know they won't be benched.

    "These linebackers are letting guys run free across the zones. You have to put a helmet on these guys and slow them down.

    "These safeties are way to slow getting to the ball on the sideline. Way too slow. (Brett) Favre lobbed one and (Gibril) Wilson couldn't even make a hit on (James) Jones (at the end of a 46-yard pass)?

    "This has to be the worst defense in Giants history. And you have to blame the front office for not doing enough to improve it in the off-season."

    10 of 11 are black. Kawicka Mitchell looks like a Pacific Islander.

    Defense
    LE 92 Michael Strahan
    NT 96 Barry Cofield
    DT 98 Fred Robbins
    RE 72 Osi Umenyiora
    SLB 97 Mathias Kiwanuka
    MLB 58 Antonio Pierce
    WLB 55 Kawika Mitchell
    LCB 25 R.W. McQuarters
    RCB 23 Corey Webster *
    SS 37 James Butler
    FS 28 Gibril Wilson

    I think that the columnist who wrote the article about the "affirmitive action" New Orleans linebackers should read this and write one about the "affirmitive action" NY Giant's defense.

    Ahem, I think that this Hench guy (the affirmative action comment pansy) is too busy tearing down white people to heed any notice to these findings.

    He strikes me as the kind of man who would desert America to collaborate with the enemy if we were on the losing end of a war with another country.
