i think if newman was there it would have had a impact on the game tho, maybe a 45-21 game
i got a beat next week cowboys beat mia. what do you all think about this game?
I agree, Yes, Newman( and nobody else either) isn't Champ bailey, but he's still one of the top 10 cover corners in the game. He didn't give up a touchdown for 20 games at one point. The giants were actually moving Burress into the slot last year on 3 reciver sets so Aaron Glenn( 5 ft. 8) would have to cover him. That's where he caught most of his passes against Dallas last year. Newman usually covers the opposing teams best receiver one on one. That way we can let Roy Williams stay close to the line of scrimmage, where he is actually an asset. In coverage deep down the field Williams is a liability IMO. Anythings possible Burress might still have had a great night, but I doubt it. The previous 2 games against the giants Burress had a game with 6 catches for 43 yards and a TD- 2nd game- 2 -94 yards and a TD. So while his height ( 6 ft. 5 ) might allow him to pluck a pass or 2 over the Dallas secondary, he was at least partially contained. 8 catches for 144 yds, and 3 TD's would seem to be highly unlikely if Newman played to me.
