What’s Happened To The Giants Great Defensive Teams? Maybe It’s All About The Scheme Of Things?

My Opinion; at the beginning of 2011, the last Giant Super Bowl victory, the Giant defense was atrocious as players seemed out of position on almost every play. Defensive backs and linebackers were running five and six yards behind a receiver, as it appeared almost comical. Players looked at each other on the sidelines trying […]

Strahan Named To All-Decade Team:

Let’s Rank the Giants, Linebacker style. ANTONIO […]

From PFT this morning: As defensive coordinator with the Giants, Sheridan did well enough to get fired after only one year.

None of them, to my recollection, were “Steve Spagnuolo.” And I don’t believe anyone else formally interviewed for that job. So keep that in mind as the […]
