He believes in following assignments, filling gaps, making hard hits and pressuring the quarterback -- especially pressuring the quarterback.
When asked about New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Glover echoed
the sentiments expressed by players, coaches and analysts around the
"He seems very confident, and he's making all the right throws right
now," Glover said. "They're very explosive. I think they're leading the

"Like a lot of quarterbacks, he's not as comfortable when he gets hit,"
Glover said. "We need to get in his face and disrupt his timing if
we're going to slow him down."
Of course, as head coach Bill Parcells said this week, no team -- even
the San Diego Chargers, against whom the Giants suffered their only
loss this year -- has slowed down the New York offense this season.
But the Cowboys, Glover said, can take solace in the fact that they
turned in an exemplary defensive performance in last week's 33-10
domination of the Philadelphia Eagles -- also considered one of the
NFL's premier offensive teams. (Philadelphia's lone touchdown came on a
fumble return, not against the Dallas defense.)
"(The Philadelphia game) tells you that if you play the right style of
defense," Glover said, "you can compete with anybody.
"It's definitely important for us to play well, especially at home, and
especially against a division opponent. We need to come out fast and
aggressive and try to knock the Giants off their game a little."
