It has been nearly two weeks since the New York Giants have been eliminated from the NFL Playoffs. Many people including myself are still recovering from a Giant hangover. I was sick. Like the time i got so drunk and woke up in the morning next to vomit and thought my dog did it. The vomit smelled like Hennessy. It was me.
Since their last game a few different things have occured, good and bad. First the bad news Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo left the team to become Head Coach of the St. Louis Rams. The good news is the Giants have hired an In-house candidate to take over as Defensive Coordinator. That person is Linebackers Coach Bill Sheridan. He has already said he will run the same defensive system that the team had run under Spagnuolo.
More good news is that Long Snapper Zak DeOssie (son of former Giant Steve DeOssie) has been selected by NFC Head Coach Andy Reid to perform all special team snapping duties for the NFC pro bowl squad. Giants Kicker John Carney and Punter Jeff Feagles made the squad so Andy Reid figured why mess with the chemistry in the kicking game. The selection of DeOssie brings the total number of Giants in this years Pro Bowl to 7. -J.M.
