According to Mike Garofalo of the Newark Star Ledger, CB Aaron Ross and LB Michael Boley will be out untill after the bye week on November 8th.
Even though the Giants had the Leagues best Pass Defense before the embarressment that took place in New Orleans, it was only because they played weak teams. The Saints were their first real test, one they failed miserably.
With the NFL Trade deadline coming in a few hours I sincerely hope that Giants GM Jerry Reese tries to make a deal or two to improve our banged up defense.
Two Players I think he should take a look at are Raiders Safety Michael Huff, and Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers.
Due to the current state of their teams these two players are very available. The Chiefs have actually already made a deal in which they sent Young DT Tank Tyler to the Panthers for a fifth round draft pick.
Huff who has been sharing time with teammate Hiram Eugene is currently tied for third in the league with three interceptions. He is also tied for second in Pass Defenses with 7. He trails only Champ Bailey and is tied with Darren Sharper and Dre Bly.
Currently C.C Brown and Michael Johnson total Zero Interceptions and only four pass defenses, and both made some big mistakes against the Saints.
Huff an experienced player, won the Jim Thorpe Award for best College DB in 2005, the year before Aaron Ross did.
Brandon Flowers is a young Corner with talent and can help the Giants in a rotation with Terrell Thomas. It has been reported that the Chiefs told the league that they will listen to offers on any player except Matt cassel. Flowers can probably be acquired for a mid round Draft Pick.
Through only five games Flowers has recorded two interceptions, (one was against the Giants) and six pass defenses. Through six games Terrell Thomas and Corey Webster have combined for only one interception and five pass defenses.
Obviously Michael Huff and Brandon Flowers have put up better numbers than the Giants Current Starters and they have done it on worse teams while facing better Offenses.
They can be acquired for relatively cheap and if they do become Giants they can probably raise their game to another level.
