    Fewell's Buffalo Defense

    Did he run a 3-4 or a 4-3- This year Fewell seems to have more 3 man rushes. With so many are the Giants experimenting to switch over? Or, is Fewll the choice for HC right now when TC retires therfore trying 3-men rushes?

    i believe he ran a 4-3 there..and the reason for the 3 man rushes is because he has no faith in our secondary to play man to man across the boards..wheather that is due to injuries or what he thinks is lack of skill i dont know

    but a 3 man rush with a weak zone is never going to work let me add

    because you see 3 men rushing the QB , that does not make it a 3-4. Far from it.

    We run a 4-3.

    Fewell comes from a Tampa 2 system. He uses it, or pieces of it quite often. In fact, I would say we run as much Tampa 2 as anyone in the league except maybe the Colts and Bears.

    The main reason for the the 3man rushes is to help out our weak secondary and linebackers. Also we used a 3man rush because we been playing Quarterbackers with quick releases...Alex Smith, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, etc.

    If we rush 4 or even blitzed its leaving some1 in man to man coverage or a hole in the zone. I dont understand why people want to rush4 or more when we know our rush wont get to the QB. Dont u get tired of saying QBs complete quick passes and watching holes in the zone.

    People have to understand there is no perfect way to defend these guys. I still think zone is the best way to go because there is a better chance u force turnovers

    [/quote]What Fewell forgot to do in that 50 second play was to assign 1. a competent CB not a guy they just signed off of the street 2. give him some safety help deep since he was their speediest receiver. You just do not have a slow guy cover and play tight coverage also on a fast receiver. Fewell is garbage and he should not be a coordinator let alone a HC. There was a reason that the Bills they did not give him the HC position but went with Chan Gailey. What does that tell you? However strangest things have happen within the Giants organization so I wouldn't be surprised if they bring another no-name coach like Coughlin who by the way was unemployed for 2 years before the Giants hired him and no other team had made him an offer. Oh well. Get ready for more mediocrity.

    Part of me wants to respond that Green Bay has been doing that to teams all year....




    .....but another part of me knows that every other teamhas been doing this to the Giants defense all year.

    I would have to call out my loyalty to this team if Fewell ever become the head coach of it...I will be sick to my stomach.




    He has this team Buffalo'ed




    His Buffalo defense is this...stand around in a big field and get killed by Cowboys....not a defense I prefer so I hope someone else has a better scheme.
