Is it another team searching to comply with the Rooney rule, or is Perry Fewell the man for the job in Tennessee? Fewell took a terrible 2009 Giants defense and turned them into one of the best units in 2010. He is known for his schemes as well as his ability to motivate his players and light fires underneath them.
Fewell interviewed with the Broncos, Panthers, and Browns, but none of those teams saw fit to make him their head guy. With one more team making the call, Giants fans sit on pins and needles.
The Giants cannot afford to lose yet another assistant after such a short time period. After losing Steve Spagnuolo at the end of his two-year stint as the defensive coordinator, the Giants promoted Bill Sheridan from within, who failed miserably.
As much as the injuries had a huge part in the outcome of the 2009 season, sometimes Sheridan just had you going “what the hell is he thinking?”
Although the organization would happily wish him the best of luck, secretly they are hoping the Titans hire someone else. As of right now they have interviewed current Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger and offensive line coach Mike Munchak, as well as Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey.
We’ll monitor the situation and update you with the Titans’ decision as soon as they make it.
