If you take a look at my DNA you’ll see that I’m a defensive guy. It’s just who I am. I was a nose guard when I played high school football, and I preferred to be the hammer than the nail. The most exciting aspect to football is to take down the quarterback. Today I’m going to break down five creative ways to get Tony Romo and others on the ground.

The Giants have a bevy of pass rushers who can get the job done. For the sake of realistic conversation we’ll exclude Jason Pierre-Paul from the conversation. We don’t know what we are going to get from him, we don’t even really know the extent to which he is struggling with his injuries.

The pass rush must go on and the Giants might have to be a little more creative about it. With pass rushing at any level of football the principles are really the same. You have to give the offensive line more than they can handle. Overload blitzes for example are my absolute favorite thing in the world. It’s simple math that 3 rushers will beat two blockers. As you will see what the Giants really have to do is turn the math into their favor. Chin straps buckled, mouth pieces in, let’s go get it.
