Super Bowl 2012, Giants Vs. Patriots: Bill Belichick Talks About Giants Defensive Line

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday that the New York Giants defensive line is difficult to prepare for because “I don’t know if anybody can play like the Giants play.”

Interestingly, Giants coach Tom Coughlin also spoke about the Giants plethora of defensive ends today, saying that having so many pass-rushers was “not a luxury,” rather “a style and a way in which we prefer to play.”

The Giants have pass-rushing ends Jason Pierre-Paul, Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck, linebacker/defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka and several quality defensive tackles.

“They (the Giants) have great quickness up there as well as power. Those inside guys can really knock the line of scrimmage back,” Belichick said. “When they move (Jason) Pierre-Paul and (Justin) Tuck and those guys inside in passing situations, they have great quickness in there, too.”

The matchup between the Patriots talented offensive line and the Giants defensive front will be one of the critical ones in Super Bowl XLVI.
