The New York Football Giants are less Big Blue this year than plain blue–as in unhappy. The Giants rank last in total defense in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell (who will be working somewhere else next year) says the Giants are going to “crawl out” of last place in the stats. Sounds pretty pathetic, as far as ambition goes.
Fewell must have sensed that “crawl” didn’t inspire confidence, so he jazzed up his chatter, saying “We’re going to compete and we’re going to get us a victory on Sunday.” Hmm. Okay. The 3-6 Giants are home against the 5-4 49ers. The Giants have lost six straight to team’s with losing records. Really, what does Fewell have to lose? Game is Sunday at 1pm on Fox.
