4. GOODSON BRINGS THE THUD

 

For the second day in a row, the Giants were in full pads, and linebacker B.J. Goodson has been doing a few quality control tests to make sure they worked properly.

 

“It’s a thud tempo, and B.J. is good at thudding,” McAdoo said. “The backs need to feel it. The linebackers need to feel it. There has to be contact there.”

 

That’s one thing today’s practice was not missing.

 

Earlier in the week, All-Pro safety Landon Collins said Goodson’s physicality is setting the tempo for the defense. Last year’s fourth-round draft pick from Clemson is running with the first team at middle linebacker after playing only 13 defensive snaps as a rookie.

 

“Oh yeah, you know B.J., he’s flying around, he’s moving,” Vernon said. “If he’s not on special teams, coming straight off special teams, coming to the periods and he’s full go. You know, we all see that. And he’s hungry, so we like that.

 

“He’s been hungry for a while and he’s coming in and trying to take that role. He’s going to be physical, that’s what we like. To be a part of this defense, you’ve got to be physical.”

Also read somewhere that there are a few offensive players grumbling that he plays right on the edge and occasionally crosses the line on how physical you're supposed to play in practice. Looking forward to seeing this kid in the preseason games.....and hopefully beyond.

That's a good thing... it's a very good measure of the man's aggressiveness... players who do this don't do it because they're assholes, it's because they just don't know where to draw the line and their aggressive instincts get the best of them...

Goodson has definitely looked the part in the first 2 pre season games. the sack in the Browns game in particular was a thing of beauty.

 

we are so long overdue to hit on a linebacker. I don't think we've had a homegrown, above average linebacker since Armstead.

We haven't. We thought we had something in Jacquain Williams but that fizzled out.
