3. EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux
There may not be a player on the Giants who's had a more disappointing start to the season than Kayvon Thibodeaux. Considering how great he looked at times last season, fans were hoping for a bit of a jump in consistency from the former No. 5 overall pick. However, through two games, he has been a major disappointment.
Against the Cardinals, Thibodeaux somehow managed not to rack up a single tackle, instead, he only registered a QB hit and hurry through 60 snaps. While Wink Martindale had him drop back into coverage more than he should have, Thibodeaux still wasn't very productive during his pass-rushing and run-defending snaps.
Thibodeaux struggled a bit with consistency last season, which is to be expected from a rookie edge- rusher. Despite this, there was hope that after an offseason spent on training, Thibodeaux would look like the star we all know he can be. The Giants defense has yet to register a sack through two games and Thibodeaux deserves as much blame as anyone else on the unit.
As the Giants move throughout their season, Thibodeaux has to up his game. New York's defense will only suffer if he continues to have minimal production. It would be nice to see Martindale use Thibodeaux in some more creative pass-rush sets, but for now, it's on Thibs to step it up.
