Multiple Media outlets, specifically Mike Fennelly of Giantsfootballblog.com, are reporting that former Buffalo Bills Defensive Coordinator and Interim Head Coach Perry Fewell has been named the new Giants Defensive Coordinator. Fewell was the first, and apparently only, candidate to interview for the position and chose the Giants over the Chicago Bears after being offered the same position there. Other candidates that were mentioned but never interviewed included former Browns Head Coach Romeo Crennel, who became the DC of the Kansas City Chiefs, and Jim Haslett, who recently became the DC of the Washington Redskins. Fewell doesn't necessarily have an outstanding resume in that Buffalo's defense was never any good. However, he was a defensive coach on the 2006 NFC Champion Chicago Bears team that got as far as they did solely due to their defensive performance. The much maligned Giants' defense gave up 4 40-point games in 2009, the most since they gave up 5 40-pointers in 1966 and ranked 28th in total points allowed, ultimately leading to the one and done firing of former DC Bill Sheridan.
I still think the Giants should have interviewed Gregg Williams. Many people would jump at the chance to coach the Giants defense with all their talent. It'll be interesting to see how Fewell implements a scheme wholly different from that of Steve Spagnuolo's juggernaut of 2007-08. One thing is for sure, he definitely has the talent on this team to get the job done, therefore he BETTER get it done. I'm not thrilled about the hiring, but I wish him the best of luck. Anything is better than Bill Sheridan.
