Ehh he used to stop the rush but it's not what we ask him to do anymore Also who cares if he bullrushes? I'd rather take his quick move with a strip sack everyday of the week. This will be his last year as a Giant for sure I think but he had a great tenure. He complains to much but for the most part he's backed it up on the field.
Honestly, if Kiwi can stay healthy, I think he can be a better DE than Osi. He's light years better vs the run, and I think he's finally developed his body to play DE and rush the passer consistently.
Of course, our luck, he happens to also have injury issues that scares us from extending him.
My issue with Kiwi's pass rush ability has always been his lack of strength. He had the length, he had the speed, but his inability to bull rush or use his strength to fight off the hands of a LT prevented him from being an effective pass rusher.
But he's gained significant strength and corrected that problem. Go back and watch his PS game vs the Steelers. He comes in on a bullrush and absolutely drills the Tackle into Ben.
Watch his sacks during the season. He can get into guys now. And he's gotten even bigger this year.
I think Kiwi is going to be a beast if he can stay healthy. That neck scares the crap out of me though. But if he can stay healthy, I'm telling you, I expect big things from him.
Realistically, expect them to run the same defense Tennessee ran. More of a man Cover 2 defense with occasional blitzes from DBs, rarely did Tennesee blitz their LBs, they almost always occupy a zone in the middle of the field to take away the intermediate middle.
