Carl Banks Lovin' on our D

NYG legend Carl Banks was on SIRIUS's "Moving the Chains" show today and gave surprising props to the Dallas Defense.

Banks was on SIRIUS NFL channel today. They spent quite a few minutes talking about the upcoming Dallas/Green Bay game and breaking down that matchup.

This shocked me: Banks, who knows Defense pretty well (can we agree on that?) said that he thinks the Dallas Defense is "much better" than the Packer Defense!

Now, I don't know about you, but that's not what I've heard from any other broadcaster. All you hear about GB is what a stud Favre is, and that, paired with that stifling Packer D, they'll go far.

It wasn't long after he said that, Packer fans started calling in outraged. Banks eventually backed down a little and said we were "a little bit" better, and not "much."

Banks likes the scheme we play, and how confusing it is starting to look to guys like Eli Manning, with all the movement pre-snap and how we'll line guys up in different places all the time. He likes our playmakers, especially, I gather, at linebacker.

BTW, he says the way to beat the Packers Defense is you've got to have good targets to pass to beyond your first and second receivers. The Packers' two starting corners will blanket those guys, but they are vulnerable trying to cover anyone past that point. Sounds like he smells a big day for Crayton, Fasano, Curtis, Hurd, etc.
