Giants' D will have new look
By Dan Graziano
I'm about to catch a flight to Philadelphia for Eagles OTAs, but I wanted to leave you with some Giants information. Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger spoke with the Giants' cornerbacks and safeties coaches today and came away with some interesting insight.
The way Garafolo tells it, new defensive coordinator Perry Fewell will roll out multiple looks in the secondary. He suggests that Bill Sheridan didn't have a lot of flexibility, which is true. But in Sheridan's defense, it's not like he had a lot to work with when key players started disappearing because of injuries. Here's what secondary coach Peter Giunta said about Fewell's approach today:
"We were very aggressive. We didn’t want to give the quarterback a chance to throw the checkdowns to hopefully discourage him from making those completions,” Giunta said of the '09 approach. “Well, now we may give up a few more completions, but we’re going to have more guys swarming to the ball and making hits and tackles on the receiver and ball carrier."
I'm thinking that makes Giants fans feel a lot better about things heading into training camp.
