CB Trumaine McBrideMcBride hasn't allowed a drop-off the last two weeks since replacing Walter Thurmond III, one of the best slot corners in the league who was placed on season-ending injured reserve. McBride, who started 10 games last year in his first season with the Giants, forced two of the defense's six takeaways last week with an interception and a forced fumble. "I'm very proud of Tru because it's tough, as a professional athlete and as a competitor – He was a starter a year ago and then he came into the season and he's not a starter," defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. "He's just had to wait his turn patiently, so when he gets the opportunity, he goes in and he proves that he should be on the field. When he made that strip; that was Trumaine McBride. He's going to do something, he's going to play big, he's going to do something in the ball game to help you team win the football game."
