The offense and third down? The defense and third down? The pass rush? The defensive secondary? The injuries? Tell us Giants fans what development to come from the Week 1 loss against Dallas has you most concerned
I have posted this everywhere I am able, so please excuse me if this is redundant for anyone. I want to know why Mr Gettleman drafted Dexter Lawrence. Not only that, he drafted him in the first round with the idea that Dexter would be centerpiece to a new Giants defense. As many of you may know, Dexter was banned from the Notre Dame game, as well as Clemson's national championship game against Alabama. He was banned because he was caught using performance enhancing drugs. So Dexter was not part of Clemson's championship defense. I think we should hear from Mr. Gettleman why he would draft a " juicer" when he was trying to have a respectable, trouble free locker room. If our GM was unaware of Dexter's " issues," he should not be the GM. Wasting a first round pick like that, for this franchise, in this crisis situation, is not acceptable. We all know of athletes in various sports who had break-our seasons due to steroid use. We also know how far their performance falls off once they are deprived of the performance enhancers. Is it co-incidence that this highly hyped player ( pardon the pun) didn't show anything in pre-season or against Dallas? He is supposed to be a phenom ( size, speed, power and athleticism ), and yet he couldn't even succeed against pre-season talent. If he is a bust, then so is our GM. Please help lead an inquiry into this issue. Thank you.

Coaching, or lack thereof. This team continues to get outcoached on both sides of the ball every week!! We have zero pass rush yet other teams find ways to put castoffs such as Kennard, Okwara, and Mauro into positions to make plays. Giants foolishly use the 2nd pick in the draft on a running back then refuse to use him in critical situations. Giants ownership needs to get their heads out of the sand (would rather use a different term) and hire a decent coaching staff.
The defense was terrible but all of the new starters and rookies, it is going to take time for the defense to gel. I think things will shake out but we may see some more changes. For example if Bethae is not showing value with veteran smarts then might as well start playing one of the rookies.
There are many possibilities. But, my biggest concern is the lack of pass rush. I know preseason means very little, but this has been a concern since the first week of preseason. We believed that coach Bettcher was holding things back for the season. Well, the games count now and I haven't seen evidence of a pass rush.
