    Does anyone sit back and realize

    We have only made the playoffs once in the past 4 seasons?

    Something on the coaching needs to change. I don't think necessarily the people need to change, but the attitude of the coaches need to change. Coughlin is determined to play a smash mouth style of football with personnel that is incapable of playing the way he wants. We should be running a very up-tempo offense giving Eli free reign but also giving the defense little time to adjust. I feel that Coughlin and Gilbride are forcing this offense to play what they want instead of the best option that fits our players. Our defense on the other hand, needs to be more aggressive Put it this way, we need more Stevie Brown's and less Corey Webster's. What im saying is we need to pursue more players with a knack for turnovers,aggressive mentality, and ball hawking. Besides JPP, our D Line is getting a bit older. I feel we should pursue a linebacker similar to Von Miller. He can sack the quarterback, but also play the outside linebacker position very efficiently. This would fill the hole we have at linebacker and at a pass rushing position. In conclusion, these are the changes I feel would be best for the team.


    P.S: Please take into consideration that this is my opinion and is not meant for anyone to be pleased or displeased with it.

    Feel free to post your opinions as well

    None of those guys are as good as Miller, but anyway, so you want the giants to add a 3-4 outside linebacker? To do what, exactly?

    To fill the hole at both linebacker and a pass rusher

    You do realize almost all of the players you listed were defensive ends in college.


    And if you want to add one player to do both, then you are just adding a player to do either situationally. Von Miller for instance lines up as a normal linebacker on run downs, but as a DE on passing downs.

    But if the opposing team decides to pass out of a run formation, or on early downs, Von Miller is not rushing the QB, and Denver loses its best pass rusher to playing coverage.

    Dude, we run a 4-3 system. We need 4-3 DE to get more pass rushers. Tuck and Osi ain't cutting it anymore.

    People are so fixated on the way we were in 1986, and don't seem to realize that 3-4 OLB and 4-3 DE aren't exactly interchangeable...

    Im not expecting him to be a straight out pass rusher every down, but it would give us some flexibility
