Giants | Allen Needs Better Performance
New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel said Giants OT Ian Allen "needs to get better'' after his performance in the Sunday, Sept. 7 season opener against the St. Louis Rams, in which Rams DL Leonard Little gave him trouble with speed rushes. Fassel also wasn't impressed with Allen's work in run blocking. With Allen struggling and OT Luke Petitgout missing most of the game with a back injury, the team went with shorter pass routes and quicker drops than it planned to and also stuck to the running game behind Giants RB Tiki Barber. Fassel said he will consider position changes and/or bringing in new linemen this week, pending Petitgout's status.
