  • Make Spags Assistant Head Coach

    This way we keep Fewell. No one gets hurt and Spags is groomed to take over for TC when he retires.

    Re: Make Spags Assistant Head Coach

    and what are his day to day duties for the team? If he isn't a DC, it sounds like we're basically paying two men to do the job of one. Not to mention TC may have an objection or two to that.

      Why would we want to keep Fewell again?

        Why would they want him as a head coach? He just got fired.

          I want him as DC and that's all, but I really doubt Perry gets fired unless he lays a HUGE stinker this weekend, which is possible bearing how nasty Atlanta's offense is

            Hate his defense but it's likely true.

              It's amazing how stupid, and consequentially smart Fewell became when Tuck started playing like we expect him to.


              We may disagree with how Fewell handled the crappy situation (guys out for the year, guys battling injuries and not performing to the best of their abilities) we were in, but there really is no question, Fewell is a good DC.

                Yeah, he stopped with the 3-man (ain't no) rush on 3rd and longs. I guess he can stay.

                All this talk about Spags is IMO futile. There's no place for him, and he was only here for two seasons. Somebody else might still offer him a HC job, anyway.

                  Fewell never became smart.

                  He's stuck with a base zone defense after we made Grossman look like a HoF QB for the second time this year and everyone (including his own players) were screaming at him.

                  We have a lot of talent on defense ... what we don't have is a particularly good DC or scheme. Any of a dozen quality DCs would have this defense in the top 10 if not top 5 defenses this year.

                  Including injuries.

                  We are currently ranked 27th in total defense.

                  This is the first time that I can ever remember being in the playoffs and our defense being considered the liability of the team.

                  Fewell's contract is over this year and they can't get him out of the building fast enough.

                    The thing is that the Giants looks ready for a serious playoff run. If that happens it becomes very difficult to justify firing anyone.




                    There something wrong when the DC takes 16 weeks to figure out that its time to simplify the defense.I also think its silly to say that the defense looks better because Tuck is playing better.

                    My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of the Super Bowl 46: Dad, are the Giants gonna win?

                    Burier: Yes.

                    My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of Super Bowl 46: Do you promise?

                    Burier: Yes. I promise.

                      Re: Make Spags Assistant Head Coach

                      The Rams where dealing with a lot of injuries in their secondary this year and so are the Giants. PF also lost Goff for the year and basically Tuck was a non factor until just a couple of weeks ago. Osi has also missed a lot of time.

                      Does anyone think that this defense would have been so much better with TT, Goff, and Tuck being healthy all year?

                        Actually if you noticed Tuck started playing "better" when Osi came back two weeks ago.

                        Tuck is a good player ... but he tends to disappear when he's the focal point of attention.

                        We're getting healthy .... Fewell has at least given our guys a scheme they seem to be able to follow. Hopefully it's enough to see us through.

                        I agree that making the playoffs may stave off letting Fewell go, but by the same comparison, they may just decide not to renew his contract (it is up this year after all).

                        I think it will really depend how much noise we make in the playoffs.

                          It would have probably made the difference in the Seattle, 49ers, Packers and second Eagles game.

                          So yeah.

                            if the defense plays well in the payoffs it may be enough to keep Fewells job but it doesn't explain why it took 13 weeks for him to figure out that his scheme wasn't going to work and for that reason alone I would like a new DC who isn't so set in his ways that he won't bend...

                              Osi didnt play against the Jets, and Tuck played a very good game. Bottom line is he hasnt been healthy. He isnt a leader, and he needs to be motivated. But when healthy, he is a stud.
