Steve Spagnuolo hired as new DC

Yes, you can go home again. The single best coordinator in Tom Coughlin’s 11 year reign as head coach of the NY Giants has been Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.  “Spags” captained the defensive ship in 2007 and 2008 with great success.  He returns in 2015 to the NY Giants. We love the move.  Why?  Not because of nostalgia.  Because Spags got it done and he will get...

Saints defense week 1: Spagnuolo back?

I will not panic. I will not panic. I will not panic. Those were my repeated words on Sunday while watching the Saints lose to the Falcons in the Georgia Dome 37-34. On one hand, the week one loss to the biggest division rival was not that big of a shock to me. I previously called it a trap game of sorts. A rival that always plays the Saints closely + an away game for a team that...

Spags is a Ravens defensive coach---but most Baltimore fans say "Meh"...

I expected a lot more enthusiastic fan reaction to the Ravens' re-hiring of Steve Spagnuolo this past week. To me the guy is a defensive genius.

But most Baltimore fans I've heard reacting to the news are apathetic at best about the hire John Harbaugh has appointed Steve Spagnuolo as...

Bill O’Brien’s tactics similar to Steve Spagnuoulo’s

Houston Texans fans beware. Your new coach is doing things that sound very similar to what former Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo did upon his arrival to St. Louis back in 2009. I’ll let NFL Network’s Albert Breer fill you in. Interesting nugget: I'm told Bill O'Brien & others spent time last weekend removing anything emphasizing individuals at the Texans facility. — Albert...
