NY Giants Edge rusher Quincy Roche:

The NY Giants absolutely need to carve out a more expanded role for Quincy Roche.

In only 45 percent of defensive snaps in last week’s matchup against the Dolphins, Roche tallied 6 combined tackles and a sack.

When you compare that to his competition in Lorenzo Carter, who only put up three combined tackles in 49 percent of snaps. It starts to make less sense why Roche is not playing more snaps.

We have seen what Roche is capable of, for example when he essentially won the NY Giants the game in a Week 9 matchup against the Raiders.

There is no reason as to why both Azeez Ojulari and Quincy Roche are not getting the majority of the snaps on their sides of the edge.

Instead, the NY Giants prefer to play Lorenzo Carter, who in nine games has only tallied 24 combined tackles and zero sacks, while playing in 63 percent of snaps. Compared to Roche, who while playing 40 percent of snaps in nine games, has tallied 26 combined tackles and two sacks.

It has become very clear as to who the better player is between the two. The NY Giants just need to come to that realization and give Roche more snaps.
