Safety, linebacker, defensive tackle: Giants draft or free agant needs

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Safety, linebacker, defensive tackle are the Giants biggest needs heading into 2010. At defensive tackle the Giants have a solid player in Barry Cofield. We can hope Canty starts to make an impact. I suppose we can hope Rocky Bernard does something but there’s no reason to think he will as far as I can see. We can assume Fred Robbins is done. We need at least one body. A real player who can collapse the pocket would be dandy.

At linebacker things are pretty sad. We can hope Boley will stay healthy the whole year (even missing significant time he had more tackles than any other Giants LB). AP is serviceable at this point in his career and Goff did show signs he might be a good replacement for Antonio Pierce. Danny Clark is a joke and the fact that no one could take his job blows me away. Clearly we need a SLB at the very least.

At safety, we can hope that Kenny Phillips makes a full recovery. He is our only safety who can cover. Michael Johnson does not belong on an NFL roster. CC Brown is fine for run support but he can’t cover (not that the Giants didn’t try to make him). Aaron Rouse seems similar to CC Brown in terms of strengths and weaknesses. The Giants desperately need a safety who can cover.

Perry Fewell

Here’s an article on the Giants new defensive coordinator. Basically his former players say he knows the game and treats his players right. Sounds good to me.

Who are you rooting for in the Giants DC position?

While it would be nice to see Pepper Johnson get the Giants defensive coordinator position, I don’t think now is the time for sentimentality.

A lot of guys have more experience:

Jets’ linebackers coach Bob Sutton was the defensive coordinator of the Jets under Eric Mangini.

Former Bills and Bears Head Coach Dick Jauron.

Former Browns Head Coach Romeo Crennel used to be an asssitant coach for the Giants during some good times.

Perry Fewell was the Bills’ defensive coordinator from 2006 to 2009 and the Bills’ interim head coach for the last seven regular-season games this year. He was the defensive backs coach for Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville for a while.

Giants lose final game 44-7

Monday, January 4th, 2010

I’m glad I didn’t take time out of sightseeing in Paris to watch the Giants get clobbered by the Vikings.

I won’t be reviewing the game since I didn’t see it but from what I’ve read, the defense was not making anyone proud. I don’t expect a playoff appearance every season (though it would be nice) but I do expect a proud defense. Reese had better get to work.

Hard to get excited about the Vikings game?

I’m in Paris and I’m not trying real hard to find a sports bar to watch the final game of a disappointing Giants football season. Is anyone else having trouble getting up for the game?
