Giants WR Hakeem Nicks Says Steelers' DBs Guilty Of Grabbing 'A Lot'
Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks studies his opponent’s tactics, too, which led him to the conclusion that Pittsburgh Steelers defensive backs hold a lot, Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
“They grab,” Nicks said. “They grab a lot. They’re physical. ”
Just to be clear, Nicks doesn’t mean contact within the league’s rules. “I’m sure you’ll see on Sunday,” he said coyly. Veteran cornerback Ike Taylor, in Nicks’ opinion, is the “main one” who holds.
The NFL’s rule prohibiting contact with the receiver 5 yards past the line of scrimmage, and the decision to more firmly enforce it several years ago, were viewed to favor the offense. But savvy defensive players have adapted to push the boundaries of the rules, even if their aggressive play nets a few penalties.
