Even with missing 7 games due to injury over that time, Boley has produced to the number of 263 tackles, 12 passes defended, 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.
At 29 years of age, No. 52 has plenty in the tank and continues to showcase great speed sideline to sideline. What's most impressive about Michael Boley is the way he plays the game. At full speed which is rare in today's NFL.
He tackles(the correct way), he runs plays down and he gives 100% every play. Just look at the effort he gave on the 4th and 1 last week against Dallas.
It was a very critical play and could have completely swung all momentum in Dallas favor. Instead, Boley dove up and over the surging pile to meet Romo in the air and dragged him down from behind.
That's the extra effort a winning team is made from. JPP needs a team mate to step up and leave it all on the field.
This week the NY Giants take on the Atlanta Falcons at Giants Stadium. A humble Michael Boley is taking the approach as if it's just another faceless opponent taking the field on Sunday.
While we appreciate his low key approach, we know better...it's not just another game or just another challenge. Anytime you have a chance to show a former team you're in a better place and at the top of your game...you do so.
Expect a 13 tackle game from Michael Boley. Expect a big play, a big hit, a fumble recovery.
Michael Turner of the Atlanta Falcons is a strong and patient running back. Michael Boley, who is always around the ball will need to wrap up to take him down. Success will come with gang tackles and running to the ball even when behind the play.
Turner, known for his patience can cut it back at any time and get up to full speed quickly for a big back. Shutting down the run will be important for the Giants to win this game.
That means Canty and Joseph upfront need to dominate while Boley and Kiwanuka clean it up. In passing situations, Boley spells coverage. He is the best backer in space and will most likely draw coverage on future "Hall of Famer" Tony Gonzalez.
The the only thing sweeter than winning a playoff game at home is winning a playoff game at home when beating your former team.
