Due to cuts, cornerback Donte Deayon and Michael Hunter will not participate in Sunday’s game against the New York Giants .
Giants weighing options to make cuts to improve a broken defensive system during football panic in NYC
In a time when the Giants’ secondary faces injuries costing the team approximately 20 points per game,McAdoo decided to take action to fine tune his defense before Sunday’s game on October 16th.
Per local Oklahoma State news outlets, Hunter had been promoted and demoted once before in September. Deayon has not been given an opportunity to play this season for the Giants.
Leon Hall, Will Beatty, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Eli Apple and Jason Pierre-Paul have all faced minor to moderate injuries early throughout this season. This has caused concern about the long-term stability about the Giants’ defensive capabilities against higher ranked teams after the Week 8 Bye.
Per Dan Duggan of NJ.com deactivated players have their hopes up during these trying times as a Big Blue fan and player.
"“I’m just trying to do everything possible so when I do get that opportunity to get out there, my play on the field and my performance keeps me there…”"
These adjustments have come after the Giants won two games two start the season and then lost three consecutive games in a manner widely believed to indicate a team lacking discipline.
The Giants have not yet released a statement detailing the reasons behind the decision to cut Hunter form the starting roster.
It is also a time when there has been pressure from the New York media for head coach Ben McAdoo to think up a better strategy to fix a team that is in disrepair.
In the past five weeks, the Giants have fallen in Power Ranking across the board of many prominent NFL ranking analysts by several points. They are well behind both the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers. The Giants have allowed a total of 1780 yards in passing and receiving.
They have allowed the opposition to maintain possession of the football the majority of the time in every game.
Giants defense has allowed a defensive split that ranks among the bottom half of the NFL allowing 7.31 yards on average in 133 plays so far when it is 1st and 10.
Barring these indications of a sure defeat this Sunday, the Giants may have a slight comparative advantage over Baltimore. The Ravens are team that have, on impulse, scapegoated offensive coordinator Marc Trestman, by firing him after a 16-10 lackluster loss last week.
