Time To Fire Sheridan?

I’ll start with this: I never, ever want to call for someone to be fired. Never. There’s more to the person than the job. There’s a life. There’s a family. It’s not fair. I would never want anyone to call for my firing. So I’m not going to say that Bill Sheridan should be fired. It wouldn’t be fair. But, I will say, it could be time for a change. As you know, the Giants have vastly underperformed on defense since the injury to Kenny Phillips. We know CC Brown can’t cover, and has been a disaster. We know that the defense hasn’t gotten the same type of pressure that we’re used to.

We were spoiled with Steve Spagnoulo. He was a defensive genius. He was fiery. You felt safe with him. I didn’t think there would be much of a change when Sheridan took over. And maybe there hasn’t. We seem to forget that they were absolutely dominant against Tampa Bay and Oakland. But in games against contenders, the Giants D has not shown up.

I leave it to you. Should Sheridan be fired? Should he be kept? If they fire him, who should replace him? Discuss in the comments.

    I think he’s average at best. Very poor decision putting Brown back there (even hiring him). Get rid of Sheridan.

    Not Happy with personal chooses. The Linebackers aren’t get it done, but we continue to use Clark, Blackburn, and Peirce every down. How about giving Wilkerson, Kehl, Sintim and Golf a chance. Sheridan isn’t an under achieving DL either. Bill gets the year. but I don’t want injuries to executes him from an off season axing if this doesn’t get turned around.

    How about everyone takes a deep breath. We haven’t even reached the bye week yet and everyone is jumping ship.

    It’s obvious there are some issues on both sides of the ball but you can’t start calling for coaches heads mid-season on a team that has a winning record. Give Sheridan a chance to turn this thing around. We have some guys coming back and a win against San Diego and then the bye week will do wonders for this team.

    I think Gilbride deserves the chopping block before SHeridan does.

    I think the injuries have a lot to do with the poor performance. What is concerning is that Sheridan hasnt attempted to make any adjustments to this poor secondary. For example, using some of the new LB talent to see what they can do. Or, better yet, Benching CC brown and letting Thomas play safety. We have a few other DBs that could play for Thomas, and God knows a blind midget could cover better than brown. So Ill make my decission on Sheridan after I see what happens when we get healthy.. but he isnt off to a great start in the decission making catagory.

    Gilbride I think has had plenty of time to get creative wtih that cryptic playbook of his and I dont think he is going to make the adjustment. He is that old timer behind the wheel that is going to go 35 regardless of the speed limit. I think we need a fesh playcaller in who can educate the offense on spreading the ball around the talent we have.
