The voting booth is closed, and a goodly number of the 171 who voted in our latest poll about what to do with Bill Sheridan must see something in defensive backs coach Pete Giunta. Fifty-one of you, or 29 percent, decided that the Giants would be well-served by replacing the defensive coordinator with Giunta, who was originally considered as Steve Spagnuolo's successor along with Sheridan.
As you can see, however, that choice wasn't an overwhelming majority. In fact, there was no majority, as you guys offered a wide range of solutions.
The idea of keeping Sheridan where he is, but allowing him to coach upstairs as he said he wanted to, drew 38 votes, or 22 percent. And 35 people, 20 percent of the vote, said Tom Coughlin would be better off firing Sheridan outright and taking over the defense himself. Twenty-six votes, 15 percent, were in favor of firing Sheridan for defensive line coach Mike Wauffle. And 21, 12 percent, said Coughlin should keep Sheridan but increase his own input into the defensive decision-making.
Just goes to show you that even when everything is going wrong, there's no clear-cut solution to the problem.
