3. The Defense Is Struggling This Preseason

Well, of course they are. They struggled the first time Steve Spagnuolo took over in 2007. And those struggles bled into the first two games of the regular season. But they figured it out, and won a Super Bowl. A Super Bowl would be nice, but even if they don’t get that, I expect them to figure it out under Spagnuolo this time around.

I think some fans are expecting the Giants D to come out like gangbusters because Spags is back. I know I feel like they will, and should. But this is an entirely different personnel that Spags is working with. Different team leaders. Different levels of talent. And also, the NFL has evolved! The NFL in 2015 is not the same NFL as in 2007. Spags will not run the same exact defense as he did from 2007-09. He’ll work with what he has.

Speaking of which, if the defense is without Pierre-Paul that could really change the way they run things. So if they struggle a little in the beginning, don’t read into it like Spags is the wrong hire. Be patient, because Giants fans have seen how good this guy really is.
