    Though his stats may look similar I always though Cofield was more a force in the backfield.

    I wouldn't expect a single Giants DT to put up great numbers since they constantly rotate. I remember him killing Brady in the Super Bowl though.

    Stats can be hard to guage with DT's. Especially ones that play in the 3-4. I'm not saying that you're not correct either, but it's hard to know how good a DT is in many cases if you're looking at just stats alone.

    The trade referenced in the article is probably the one that fell through between the Giants and Saints:

    I know the Saints really coveted Cofield and I'm sure they didn't lowball him - so wild speculation as to what he wanted began.

    Now that the Saints have Sean Rogers, I'm not sure if they'd have any interest in him - but the guy was (justifiably, imo) sought after. And will be even moreso, probably. Just not sure how much $$$ it would take to land him.

    Keep in mind folks that Okoye's focus last two seasons was to shut down the run not get to QB. Gary mentioned several times that oneof the priority needs was to stop the run. I for one had been championing a big old DT and had to shut up when the light DTs did quite well.

    ALso, didn't Mitchell and Okoye rotate quite a bit?

    Okoye has not been a dominant DT, but folks act like he's just lunch meat out there.

    Dude gets penetration and is decent against the run.

    He hasn't lived up to top 10 status, but he's not terrible like some people say he is.
