Tuck On Sheridan And Fewell

Justin Tuck sure seems excited about this season. In an interview with the New York Post, Tuck said, ” I think this season might go down in history as one of the best Giant seasons.”

Why the excitement, Justin? Perry Fewell:

“You can tell (Fewell) loves what he’s doing,” Tuck said. “He has that fire about him, like he really loves defense. I think that is contagious. I’ve seen him lead a safety or corner into the end zone after a pick in practice. . . . Bill (Sheridan) would hi-five us, but it sometimes didn’t feel like he wanted to be there.”

“Bill got stagnant in his playcalling,” Tuck said. “We didn’t do a lot of adjustments last year. . . . We kinda played individual ball a lot, me included. It made it easy for teams to single us out and block us.”

As we’ve said all along, Bill Sheridan was one of the main reasons that the Giants defense was awful. According to Tuck, there was another:

We started feeling like we were entitled

I like Tuck’s confidence and I think it speaks volume to the trust they’ve already developed in Perry Fewell. As training camp starts (full preview coming to a screen near you soon!) that trust will only get stronger. Giants like to be the underdog. They certainly are this year.
