Eisen's Mailbag: How many DT's on roster?

Posted Jun 25, 2013's Michael Eisen answers your questions!

Today’s edition of The Mailbag on

With Joseph, Jenkins, Patterson, Rogers, Hankins, Austin and Kuhn on the roster, how many defensive tackles will the Giants likely carry? 

Dear Mike:
Good question. The Giants usually have four on their active roster. They can probably keep a fifth, especially if that player can also contribute at end. But they’re not going to keep seven. One of the best competitions of the summer will surely be at defensive tackle.

I am a Giants fan from Gatineau, Québec since 1993. My question is who was a better Giant, Brandon Jacobs or Ahmad Bradshaw?

Dear Fernand:
I know it’s a copout, but I can’t pick one. Jacobs played seven years, Bradshaw played six. Jacobs had 1,071 rushing attempts for the Giants, Bradshaw had 921. Jacobs ran for 4,849 yards, Bradshaw, 4,232.  Yards-per-carry: Jacobs 4.5, Bradshaw 4.6. Rushing touchdowns: Jacobs 56, Bradshaw 32. They each played on two Super Bowl championship teams. Bradshaw was a smaller back who was drafted in the seventh round, so you could argue his achievements are more impressive. But I’ll let you choose who was the better Giant.
