Ernie Palladino breaks it down:
Someone in the Giants’ organization must be thinking, “If we’ve got a problem, get one of the best to help solve it.”
Special Teams guru Larry Izzo to the rescue!
When he played special teams for the Patriots, there was no one more hard-nosed and effective as Larry Izzo. So it stands to reason he’d be a good addition to any coaching staff. Izzo, 36, is a three-time Pro Bowler who held the record for most special teams tackles for an active player. Just getting a shot of his enthusiasm and grit on the sideline would automatically improve a kickoff coverage and punt coverage that finished a respective next-to-last and last in the league last season.
Amazing — I post a fiery rant torching the Giants special teams and their downplaying of just how bad they were, and then word of this hire miraculously surfaces moments later. Careful what you wish for I guess…. cuz you just might get it all!
