Hopefully this will calm people down!!
 
Along the way Spagnuolo adopted his formula for success, built on what he calls the Four Pillars: Faith. Character. Core Values. Team First.

He relied on those attributes early in the 2007 season, Spagnuolo’s first as the Giants’ coordinator. Having given up 80 points in a 0-2 start to the regular season, Spagnuolo met with the defensive players before Week 3.

Michael Strahan, the Giants’ future Hall of Fame defensive end, remembered the moment.

“Spags came into the room and said, ‘I want you guys to trust and believe in the system. Believe in the game plan and what I’m telling you to do. I know we haven’t had as much success as we’d like, but the system works. Trust it. I want you to know that I would not trade any player in here for anybody else. I want to do this with you guys.’

“For us,” said Strahan, “that made us feel like, ‘This guy cares for us. This guy will go to battle for us. This guy will stand up for us.’ We turned it around. We trusted him and it worked.”

The Giants recovered to win 15 of their next 18 regular-season and postseason games and capped their improbable run with the dramatic Super Bowl victory over the previously unbeaten Patriots.

I'm sure there's a few players he'd trade in a second and maybe even a few he'd love to cut.

I don't know if I can stand to lose to Cam Newton next week as ugly as we lost today. Spags better get this ship right quick.

I be glad to get rid of these running QBs we keep running into.

That is one problem we had today.

I don't know... he didn't seem to take off as much as I thought he might.

Not but he could of, my issue was he is able to roll out of the pocket so easily all game long and Spags never adjusted to keeping him in the pocket.

This is where I begin to question Spags as a D-Coordinator or any type of coach.

Yeah, but in the Giants he was talking to a group of guys who were capable of playing football at a high level.

Different set of personnel; our starting defensive ends are fat, slow...

Giants had leaner, faster defensive ends...

And they always seem to be able to find safeties that could cover...

But even if we did have great safeties right now, we have no pass rush to make it all work together...

But you got to remember we had DE's going after RGIII plenty times in that game.

The problem was he is a scrambling QB, you dont find that every week and to that extent except from maybe 3 guys, whom we face all this season, thats Newton, Vick, RGIII.

Otherwise we would of have 5-6 sacks in that game.

Definitely have to improve in the tackle department. Harper is one of the only players that jumps out who tackled well yesterday.
