Fewell To Mix It Up:

Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger spoke with the Giants’ cornerbacks and safeties coaches today and came away with something interesting.

Garafolo said new defensive coordinator Perry Fewell will roll out multiple looks in the secondary. He thinks Bill Sheridan didn’t have a lot of flexibility, which is true. But in Sheridan’s defense, the Giants had alot of  injuries. Here’s what secondary coach Peter Giunta said about Fewell’s approach today:

“We were very aggressive. We didn’t want to give the quarterback a chance to throw the checkdowns to hopefully discourage him from making those completions,” Giunta said of the ’09 approach. “Well, now we may give up a few more completions, but we’re going to have more guys swarming to the ball and making hits and tackles on the receiver and ball carrier.”

This should ease some pain of Giants fans heading into training camp.

    What’s with everyone trying to give Sheridan the benefit of the doubt, he was trash pure and simple. Regardless of injuries, he NEVER adjusted to the opposing offenses gameplan at half time, the Eagles were sitting 7 guys in to block anytime the Giants blitzed and instead of having his guys look for that and go man to man, they still played weak zones (never putting a safety over the top, instead opting for them to clog the middle) leading to huge touchdowns for Jackson and Maclin. I understand the personnel was shot, but you need to work with what you have, and he never adjusted to his own teams injuries either, he was a sad excuse for a coordinator and should’ve been fired immediately after that second Eagles game.

    sounds more like the 2007 – 8 strategy… which does work so long as you do have your guys swarming and making tackles. and the LB’s in that case don’t have to be stellar, they just don’t have to make mistakes. its as simple as do your job and make some plays. get a 3 and out, and help out the offense to get them on the field as much as possible.
