With the New York Pass Defense firmly entrenched for the New York Giants in 2016, we ponder whether it’ll remain the same for 2017.
When one thinks about the New York Football Giants, who usually comes to mind?
Lawrence Taylor? Harry Carson? Michael Strahan?

Big Blue has been known for their talent on the defensive side of the ball. This is the side that has helped the Giants win four super bowls.
In contrast, in recent years, the Giants have been one of the worst defensive teams in the league. As a result, the G-Men missed the playoffs from 2012 until 2015, before finally making it this past season. The team was carried by its defense, following the trend of Giants teams from the past.
While the defensive line did their part in 2016, the real stars of the defense were in the secondary where the Giants had one first team All-Pro and two-second team All-Pros.
