3. Defense Needs Major Overhaul

Let’s face it, the Giants’ defense was one of the worst seen in years by the organization. It’s stale, not aggressive and doesn’t really do anything right when stopping opposing teams from moving the chains or scoring touchdowns. The Giants need to head into 2015 with a fresh new defensive system.

Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell needs to be fired and a new coach needs to be brought in that knows about bringing the heat on defense. The Giants do indeed have the talent to get the job done but sometimes it’s best to shake things up and start from scratch to head into a better direction.

A new defensive coach, some new faces via free agency and immediate contributors from the draft should do the trick. The Giants’ defense can’t get any worse than what everyone saw in 2014 so it’s best to destroy and rebuild.
