Keith Bulluck returns to the field…

NY Giants LB Keith Bulluck

After a 3 week absence Keith Bulluck looks to make his return to the field against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.  Bulluck last saw game action when the Giants lost to the Titans.  In that game Bulluck suffered a turf toe injury; with Bulluck out of the lineup the Giants were able to post some impressive victories against the Bears and Texans.  What was most impressive about those victories was the play of the defense; the Giants seem to have come into their own as the defense has settled in nicely with Perry Fewell’ defensive scheme.

Fewell has incorporated a defensive scheme that adjusts depending on the team they are playing.  Against a pass happy offense the Giants run a nickel package that includes a 3rd Safety; this works out well for the Giants as they have 3 quality safeties in Antrel Rolle, Kenny Phillips, and Deion Grant.  Against teams who run the ball the Giants will go with the traditional setup of 3 linebackers.

And that is where Bulluck comes into the picture, the Bears and Lions predominantly throw the ball so Bulluck was not necessarily missed.  The time off allowed Bulluck to rest and make sure the toe was good for the stretch run.  The Giants will need Bulluck as they will begin to get into the part of their schedule where they will face teams with strong running games; Redskins, Vikings and the Cowboys.

Best believe Bulluck can’t wait to get back on the field; before his knee injury he never missed a game so not playing on Sundays is something he is not used to.  I expect Bulluck will look to make his presence felt against the Cowboys.  With the improved play of middle linebacker Goff the overall play of the linebackers will continue be on the rise.

When asked about the Dallas Cowboys Bulluck simply said, “I will be ready to play…”

As always….
If there is something to be said, “Its On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
