More on Fewell

Paul Schwartz of the New York Post had a great article on Perry Fewell.  Here are some select quotes that caught my eye:

“If you get out there and consistently make mistakes, he’s going to blow up,” Bills safety George Wilson told The Post. “He doesn’t like repetitive mistakes. He doesn’t like silly mistakes. Hitting a guy out of bounds and getting a penalty. I saw that happen in one of our games this year — he just went berserk.

“We’re battling for field position, the guy was a veteran guy, Drayton Florence, and he should have known better, and Perry just chewed [him] out. Sometimes as players we need that. Perry does a good job of knowing when to get in your face and when to step back and do some positive reinforcement. He does a good job of doing a balancing act.”

Frankly, that’s what the Giants need. They need a fiery guy. From that quote, he seems pretty damn fiery.

“He definitely likes to get after the quarterback,” Wilson said. “We had a lot of interceptions. We made progress in sacks. He’s definitely an aggressive coordinator. He’ll try to get a feel for what the offense is trying to do in the first drive of the game, and then he’ll make an adjustment. He’ll get a feel for the game and he’ll start to dial ’em up.”

Aggressive. That’s what we’ve been saying all year. An aggressive defense leads to sacks, which leads to turnovers, which leads to wins. Obviously, it’s early. Too early to judge Fewell. But, from what we’ve heard so far, he could be a great hire.
