A miffed Perry Fewell accused some members of the New York Giants defense of quitting in the blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints and he vowed that will not happen again. The Giants defensive coordinator says he was angry and disappointed the way his unit played in the 49-24 thrashing and he seemed certain that the defense would show up Sunday for what is now a crucial game against the undefeated Green Bay Packers. Speaking after practice Thursday, Fewell virtually guaranteed that his unit would put pressure on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers by getting after what he politely said was his rear end. If there was anything that upset Fewell, it was seeing players pull up short - give up - on certain plays.

Players have little to say about Fewell

A day after being verbally attacked by one of their own, Giants players refused to fire back at defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. Instead, the Giants defense reserved its emotional energy for Sunday and its goal of making life uncomfortable for Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Could Fewell's words create rift with team?

Perry Fewell’s rant on his own players was a little unexpected today. He’s normally a big cheerleader, but his rah-rahs turned into roars as he essentially lambasted the team for not playing with heart, with the “will to win,” and for – although he did not use this particular word – quitting.

The Giants Defense Gets Called Out By Its Coach

You have to have a long memory to remember a time when it was a coach of the Giants, not the Jets, making headlines for their performance in a press conference.

It worked out and the Giants won the NFC, but since then it has been Herman...

Missing Pass Rush Doesn't Explain Everything

Whenever the Giants ignore a glaring need early in the draft to select a player who can get after the quarterback, the refrain from the team is the same. "You can never have enough pass rushers."
