And Osi’s Off Again…

People got mad when Fuchs posted that the Giants should consider trading disgruntled Osi Umeniyora for S Kerry Rhodes. Well…   Osi is mouthing off again. According to Ralph Vacchiano Osi Umenyiora wants to continue his career with the Giants, but if he doesn’t get his starting job back he’s going to just quit. In […]

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 […]

Fewell Press Conference Transcript

Here is Perry Fewell’s transcript from his press conference today: Q. What kind of challenge is this going to be? You had a few opportunities but decided to take on this challenge with a defense that gave up the most points since 1966? A. I think it is a workable challenge. I look forward to […]

Tidbits From Fewell’s Press Conference:

Here are some tidbits from Perry Fewell’s press conference compliments of Ralph Vacchiano: • Fewell said he was disappointed that he didn’t get more than one interview for the Buffalo Bills coaching job after leading them to a 3-4 record down the stretch as their interim coach. “I thought I did a good job in […]

From Ralph Vacchiano: Perry Fewell has “a lot of confidence” in the defensive coaches he inherited when he joined the Giants, and other than hiring a new defensive line coach he has no plans to make any other changes to the Giants’ coaching staff.

Ranking The Giants: Defensive Line

We continue to Rank The Giants, and today, we Rank the Defensive Line. For years, the defensive line has been the staple of the Giants. But, for whatever reason, this year was different. Injuries played a role, for sure, but the lack of a consistent pass rush hurt the Giants. JUSTIN TUCK: Tuck played most […]

Season-In-Review: What Went Wrong – Bill Sheridan

Is he about to drop an F-bomb? Former Defensive Coordinate Bill Sheridan – who spent all training camp, preseason, and 17 weeks of the NFL season “streamlining” the Giants Defense – effectively completed one mountainous task this year:  Sheridan completely derailed the production of the Gaints Defense in 2009. Boy did he screw the pooch, […]

Unpacking The Players Performances: Defense

In the wake of the Bill Sheridan firing, I got to thinking that it would be helpful for us to establish an objective benchmark for how the players performed over the course of the season so that we can intelligently talk about changes that need to be made this offseason. Stats are nice to have […]

Can The Giants Change to a 3-4?

I’ve gotten lots of emails and comments about the Giants defense. Of course, everyone and their mother wants Bill Sheridan fired. I think he will be tomorrow. The common theme I see is fans wanting to see a change to a 3-4 defense. For those unfamiliar, a 3-4 defense has 3 down lineman, and 4 […]

Who Stays Who Goes?

From Ralph Vacchiano The Giants will say their final farewells to their miserable 2009 season Sunday and for some Giants, those farewells will be forever. Some have even already said their final goodbyes. Those decisions won’t be official, of course, until Tom Coughlin and GM Jerry Reese sit down in the days, weeks and months […]
