  • Interesting Comment Made by an Eagles fan

    This is what an Eagles fan posted on one of their boards

    "Steve Spagnuolo is regarded as a great DC and great defensive mind
    because he crafted a defense that shut down the amazing Patriots offense
    of 07-08. But during the regular season the Giants' defense was not all
    that great and only truly got hot once in the playoffs.



    Now in 11-12, the Giants are kind of doing the same thing, only under a
    totally different DC. The Giants defense kind of sucked during the
    regular season and now in the playoffs they are taking it up multiple
    notches. Just like in 07 when taking the Patriots apart, they did the
    same thing with the Packers who were the NFL's best offense this season.



    So if the Giants continue this trend and go on to win the Superbowl or
    even get to the Superbowl and their defense plays well, does it put a
    damper on the legend of Steve Spagnuolo? Fewell would have done the same
    exact thing Steve Spagnuolo did with his defense just a few years
    after."

    Interesting you think?

    I thought the same thing last week. Only difference is Fewell didn't win an NFC championship game or a superbowl.

    If he pulls it off, we can say Eli was much better compared to 07, but our defense is also much improved compared to how good they were in 07

    Idk ..it is a good point

      as Pak hinted it, Fewell is only HALF WAY to what Spags did. I wouldn't even begin to entertain this comparison just yet. Still so much more work to do.

        I think the interesting part of this is that there is someone rooting for the eagles that can speak in complete sentences.

          if it happens it'll be a really interesting conversation for sure.




          but it has to happen first.

              its going to be a valid conversation soon.




              lots of coordinators have gone on to other jobs and their area of expertise has been a real strength on the teams they head coached.




              can't say that for Spags. So far, his legend is confined to 24 months of coaching only.

                Good points, but correct me if I'm wrong, wasn't the 2008 Giant D exceedlingly good in the regular season? I can't remember statistically, but I thought that Giants team was quite good and they had lost Strahan by then. Also, they were pretty terrible in 2009, (thatmuch I think Iremember clearly)when Spags left for St Louis, so I think he deserves a good chunk of the credit he's received.

                    I thought the 2008 season was what gave Spags real potential as a HC. The defense was just plain dominant that season.

                      I believe the players had a lot to do with the 08 run and also in the 12 run. The players are the ones who make the plays and do the executing. Not taking anything away from Spags and Fewell.

                        Spags did not have this Defense

                        He had 75% of this in terms of manpower

                          Great coaches can make mediocre players look great while poor coaches can make great players look average. Conversely great players can make a decent coordinator look great and a lack of skilled players can make a great coach look bad. They go hand in hand, to be great you need both great player and great coaches. If that wasn't the case, why bother paying so much to get the good coaches, in fact, why have coaches at all?
                          My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

                            IF fewell pulls it off, it would be more impressive actually, with all the injuries we had on defense this season. But during the season, we were ranked what, 28th overall? Spags never was ranked outside the top 15.
