  • Giants News, 7/13: Another Head-Coaching Chance For Steve Spagnuolo?

    https://www.bigblueview.com/2017/7/1...ron-jones-more

    Excerpt: "If the New York Giantsí defense is as good or better in 2017 as it was last season, could defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo earn a second chance to be an NFL head coach?

    ESPN NFL Insiders think itís possible:
    He helped engineer one of the great upsets in NFL history when the Giants took down the mighty Brady-Moss 2007 Patriots in the Super Bowl, which propelled him to the head job in St. Louis. But that was a forgettable three-year stretch with the Rams. Still, Spagnuolo's defensive wizardry was again on display in 2016, and he could get some looks.
    Valentineís View: I would agree that itís possible. Maybe not likely after he went 10-38 in three seasons as head coach of the St. Louis Rams, but possible.

    Spagnuolo did get an interview with the Giants before they hired Ben McAdoo to replace Tom Coughlin. At the time he expressed that he still hoped to get another chance to run his own team." Read more...

    If this season plays out like the 2007 season, I could see an AFC East team taking a look at him. Maybe the Jets?

      Absolutely true. Heck I would give Spags the job here and send McAdoo somewhere, anywhere else. Love Spags always had. I hope our defense is even better than last year. Our defense has a possibility of going into Giant folk lore like the ones under Parcells and Belechek.

        I really don't want to lose Spags again. Our defense was never the same after he left the first time. But if he does get another chance I hope it works for him this time

          At least we know it is always possible for him to come back. Maybe another S.B. win is worth loosing him for a couple years.

            That'd suck. Big fan of Spag's system and overall approach to the game, and would love him as a HC actually for the GMen. Not to say I don't like Mac, b/c I"m actually a big fan, but lot's of "potential" HC's would fail in Stl. Just like most QB's would do poorly playing in Cleveland.

            We need to keep Spags. Our D was exponentially better both times he's been in our organization. Make him the highest paid DC in the NFL.
            NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

            Rd 1
            Garrett Bolles - OT
            David Njoku - TE
            Zach Cunningham - OLB

              I don't see the Jets going for a third Defensive minded coach. I mean Ryan was a trainwreck and Bowls isn't that much better

                Good point. But both of them had a good first year with the team. They just can't seem to develop a QB. I was just thinking of the lure of a coach who might be one of the very few to have the Patriots number.

                  Some guys are just not meant to be head coaches in the NFL. Spagnuolo is one of them, at least in my opinion. Norv Turner and Wade Davis are two more examples off the top of my head. They sucked as HC's, but are damn good coordinators.

                    I know they both had a good first year but I personally think that Rex's first two years were attributed to the old guard. I.E. Mangini's guys. Once Rex got his guys in there then we saw the truth.

                      Bingo! Coaches like Spags should just stick to what they know ala **** LeBeau....(that rhymed). Only time will tell but I think the same will hold true for Zimmer.....

                        So you would fire a successful (so far) HC to hire a HC who was a train wreck in his only HC job?

                              Wade Phillips, yep! Good catch

                              I was watching a Cubs game a couple of nights ago, and Wade Davis pitches for them. His name must have gotten stuck in my head LOL
