    I hope this isn't another case of Reese and Coughlin out-thinking themselves. JT Thomas was a backup on one of the worst teams in the league and they jump all over him because he had his best game...

    He's not basing it on wins in the second half of the season as much as he's looking at how the team competed. With the exception of the fourth quarter of the Seattle game, the Giants were in every...

    Is that really a "problem?" This is a discussion. It's not like the Giants are going to sign everyone. It's just fans talking about it. Gauging interest among other fans, seeing what they think about...

    No one complained when Sam Madison (32 when he signed) or Deon Grant (31 when he signed) came in. It really depends on what you're asking the player to do. If you can get a savvy vet who's hungry to...

    I wouldn't be against them bringing him as Grey Ruegamer-like depth, but anything beyond that is asking for too much.

    Maybe it's just discussion? I mean, you can only have too many "who would win between the '07 and '86 squads?" threads during the offseason. News doesn't come as rapidly. It's fans being fans....

    HC Ray Handley
    OC 2003 Jim Fassel
    DC Johnnie Lynn (I hated this man more than Fewell, Sheridan and Tim Lewis combined)

    I liked him too, but for what he lacked in physical skills he made up for in, as you pointed out, his smarts on the field. Butler was definitely a guy you could count on.
  9. I agree with that.

    I agree with that.
  10. Maybe as individual players they weren't that...

    Maybe as individual players they weren't that great but they came together as a team. That, I think, is one of the main differences between a guy like Fewell and Spags. The whole was better than the...

    I honestly don't remember too many people complaining. If they were, they were probably of the "can't please everyone" variety who find things to be critical about no matter what. The team was ranked...

    I agree. But I also trust Coughlin to do the right thing. Some may not. I think he's cognizant of the fact that the league has changed and if he interviews Spagnuolo he will be sure to ask him why he...

    The point I think most are making is that Spags, in the right situation, was a successful coach. Argue all you want that Fewell didn't have the players either, but he also "didn't have the players"...

    Oh yeah. I suppose I could call Mr. LeBeau "He Who Must Not Be Named."

    It wouldn't be unprecedented for Spagnuolo to return and even be successful for the Giants despite him not having much success elsewhere. Take a look at **** LeBeau. He had an absolutely horrendous...

    I like Vic Fangio more than any other candidate. Why? Coughlin, the offense and all of us saw firsthand what his D humming on all cylinders can do to an offense (2012 NFC Championship game). It took...

    In 2010 you can argue poor defensive play kept the team out of the playoffs. Same for 2012 and I would argue this year you can say the same.

    Kevin Gilbride, for all of his faults (and I was...

    It'll be very disappointing indeed if Fewell is allowed another chance to blame the players for the shortcomings of his defensive scheme. Leaders don't point fingers.

    I provided a link to an article at the top of the post. Within it, Perry Fewell proceeds to blame the players for the defensive collapse of 2012.

    It's probably because he looks like he'd be more at home in Team America than as a football coach.
