The folks at Sirius Radio sent me a passage from an interview with Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo regarding his successor at the Giants, Bill Sheridan.
"Bill, I think, is as knowledgeable a football coach as I’ve ever been around," Spagnuolo told Movin' the Chains hosts Tim Ryan and Pat Kirwin. "I tremendously leaned on him when I was there. Matter of fact, I e-mailed him this morning to just kind of hang in there because I know it’s not easy. It’s a tough setting and the expectations are high there and they should be. But I do believe they’ll bounce back.
" I did talk to Tom Coughlin (Tuesday) morning just to kind of see how he was doing and, you know, their season’s not over. You know how that is. These next three weeks, especially in the NFC East, anything can change. Although, Philadelphia looked pretty strong the other night. I do think Bill will rally the troops. There’s talent there. At some point all those guys gotta step up and play and I know that they will. I have a lot of confidence in that crew. And it’s not just Bill, guys. That whole staff – Peter Giunta, Dave Merritt, Mike Waufle, the whole crew that’s there, they work their tails off, they know football, they’re smart and they’ll get it straightened out."
Spags seems to have more faith than a lot of the Giants faithful who have watched the defense flounder over the last half a season. Then again, he's got his own problems at 1-12.
