We know that you can't put too much stock into any preseason game, let alone the first one. That being said, I was still impressed with how the Giants looked defensively this past weekend when they played the Miami Dolphins. The regulars played only two series against the 'Fins but it looked like the $200 million that the Giants spent on upgrades this past off season are going to pay off. I was especially impressed with defensive end Oliver Vernon who spent the first four seasons of his career with those same Dolphins. Again, it's one preseason game, but I think we can count on the defensive side of the ball being much improved for Big Blue this season.
