Would LB Jameel McClain Even Make Sense For The Giants?

The twittersphere is popping with news of former Raven LB Jameel McClain meeting with the Buffalo Bills today, and then heading down to see our beloved Giants afterwards. He’s a Syracuse guy that has played all over the different defensive schemes the Ravens have employed since 2010. On that information alone, he sounds like a […]

Prisco: Giants To Take OLB Anthony Barr With 12th Pick In Draft

CBS Football Insider Pete Prisco is out with his first mock draft, and he has the Giants taking UCLA OLB Anthony Barr with the 12th pick. 12. New York Giants — UCLA OLB Anthony Barr: They have little speed at linebacker, and it shows. Yes, they need offensive line help but they can wait on […]

How Jon Beason could become Giants’ next Lawrence Taylor

It’s early October, and the Giants are struggling. Not just struggling to the Giants standards, we’re talking Jaguars struggling. A Giants team that appears to be decimated of any clear-cut leaders on both sides of the ball, and opposition scoring at will on Perry Fewell’s non-existent defense. Fresh off being dismantled by a winless Panthers, […]

Osi for Kerry?

I can’t remember where I saw this, so if you are the person who thought of it, I’m sorry I didn’t give you credit. But, the gist of the proposed deal was this: Osi Umenyiora for Kerry Rhodes? It fits a need for both teams. The Jets need a pass rusher. The Giants need a […]

Thoughts On Fewell

Well, it’s official. Perry Fewell is the next defensive coordinator for the New York Giants. It is a good move? I’m not sure. To be honest, I don’t know much about him. I know he runs a Tampa-2 scheme (similar to what the Colts run). I don’t think we have the quickness at linebacker or […]

Bill Sheridan to Dolphins?

Paul Pasqualoni was recently dismissed at the Miami Dolphin’s Defensive Coordinator, and the ‘Fins are looking to move quickly to replace the vacancy. But the void at Miami’s DC position will likely still be vacant after Bill Sheridan meets with their front office this week, and that shouldn’t surprise anyone given his performance with the […]

My Pick For Defensive Coordinator

Let’s face it: The defensive coordinator search might take awhile. We hear names every day, but nothing seems like it’s close. And that’s okay. The Giants don’t have a game this week (sadly). That said, it would be nice to know who is running the defense next year. And, after much thought, I know who […]
