In what Defensive Coordinator, Wink Martindale, calls a “positionless defense”, Julian Love is all over the field making big plays. Isn’t it time to recognize his “smart, tough, and dependable” play and show him some love?
The New York Football Giants are an unexpected 6-1. The front office and coaching staff have been earning accolades game after game. But Head Coach Brian Daboll continues to heap his praise on the players as well as leveling the euphoria with, “We’ve got some things to correct.” While the team has shown balance in all phases of the game, The Giants have the 6th-ranked defense in points given up (holding teams to just 17.6 points per game) and the top-ranked team in fumbles forced and recovered. One of the leaders of the Giants’ defense is Safety/Defensive Back, Julian Love.
Love leads the Giants’ defense in tackles with 50 after just seven games. With the exception of the Chicago Bears game, Love has played every defensive snap the Giants have taken. Love also has the Giants’ lone interception. Julian has shown a propensity to be in the right spot at key moments in the last two games. His interception of Lamar Jackson in the fourth quarter two weeks ago was the key moment that led to the Giants’ final score which put them in the lead for good. Against the Jaguars on Sunday, Love recovered Travis Etienne’s fumble in the Giants’ endzone which avoided a sure “first and goal” situation for the Jags. Love was also in on the stop of the Jaguars’ WR Christian Kirk at the Giants’ one-yard line on the final play Sunday. In the Giants’ only loss to the Cowboys, Love was all over the field amassing 14 total tackles (10 solo).
Many Giants have been key contributors to the team’s performance so far this season. But few have had as consistent a start to this season as Julian Love. Yes, show this man some “Love”!
