4 NY Giants who must get it together in Week 4 vs. the Bears
1. LB Tae Crowder
To be honest, Tae Crowder has looked pretty awful this season. His run defense may not be the worst at times, but his complete inability in coverage has ruined the NY Giants defense at times. The tackling needs to be better too. He should have stopped Ezekiel Elliott on the touchdown run you can see below:
Crowder was a very questionable player last season, and in all honesty, it was surprising to not see the Giants front office replace him. Not only does he really not fit in Wink Martindale’s defense, but Crowder’s all around ability on defense becomes a negative more than a positive at times.
The Crowder experience has been a very up-and-down one – mostly down. The NY Giants are going to need him to up his level of play if the defense wants to continue to succeed.
