Perry Fewell is “pissed” at lack of effort from Giants

Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell is usually mild mannered, but these are not usual times in New Jersey.

Fewell let his team know about it this week, and then let the media know on Thursday.

“I was pissed, okay?” Fewell said via the Newark Star-Ledger. “I was getting them going Monday night and we’re getting going this week. So player-friendly or not, it’s all about winning. . . . And I think they got the message and they understand what’s on the line for us.”

Fewell was especially upset about a lack of effort on some plays. Justin Tuck, Aaron Ross, and Corey Webster all showed questionable hustle against New Orleans.

“I’ve had two players say the same thing,” Tuck said Thursday to Mike Garafolo. “They asked me to sit down [for a chat].”

Tuck fined himself during the week for the incident. These are desperate times with Aaron Rodgers coming to town.  Fewell wants to see aggression.

“More so than discipline, we just have to get after his ass, okay?” Fewell said. “And if we do that and he scrambles, then that’s the price he’s going to have to pay because we’re going to hit him. We’re going to hit him.”

    haha, giants will get blown out by GB…. 48-17!!

    He should have pissed on them, the way they played. It was a disgrace.

  3. phrancheyez says: Dec 2, 2011 11:13 AM

    Your players might hit ON Aaron Rodgers, but if they play like they did against the Saints, that’s as close as they’ll get to him.

  4. gcsuk says: Dec 2, 2011 11:15 AM

    How does he think the Giants FANS feel?

  5. glennsyank13 says: Dec 2, 2011 11:19 AM

    Didn’t Suh just get suspended for showing more aggression than discipline against the Packers?

  6. iced107 says: Dec 2, 2011 11:19 AM

    Atleast they didn’t fall to the ground faking cramps again

  7. pixelito says: Dec 2, 2011 11:20 AM

    He should be more pissed that all of his head coaching interviews will be strictly token.

  8. daryllh says: Dec 2, 2011 11:22 AM

    I’m pissed at Perry for not making another Pornos For Pyros album.

  9. tcostant says: Dec 2, 2011 11:23 AM

    Gaints win this week and shock the world. The always loss games their suppose to win (Seahawks) and win a game they are suppose to loss (Pats).

    This week they do it again and beat the Pack!

    This makes no sense. I have no idea what this quote is referring to. Please elaborate.

    He should be pissed at himself as well. Running a three man front in passing situations when you have one of if not the best pass rushing d-lines in the league. Trying to run scheme the Giants arne’t built for. It’s rediculous. It really is.

    Your DB’s and LB’s are banged up and coverage is definately an issue. A good pass rush covers up a lot of that mess. Stop with the three man fronts. Stop blitzing from a three man front. Put your pass rushers on the field and let them hunt. That’s what Spagnuolo did and it brought a championship home.

  12. rpiotr01 says: Dec 2, 2011 11:28 AM

    Just don’t stomp on him, OK? Packer fans have seen quite enough of that for a while.

  13. beedubyatoo says: Dec 2, 2011 11:29 AM

    The Giants will be the 18th team in a row to think that their defensive lineman can ht Rodgers. So far none have been successful. His only injury came from a hit downfield by a Lions’ linebacker causing a concussion, for which he missed a game. And before you start clicking on the thumbs, I don’t think the hit was dirty or after the whistle.

  14. nflofficeadmin says: Dec 2, 2011 11:31 AM

    The injuries proved to be too much for the team to handle. Just a fact. And it doesn’t excuse losing.

  15. dionoil says: Dec 2, 2011 11:32 AM

    Perry is an awesome coach. That being said, this year is making him look awful

  16. petehemlock says: Dec 2, 2011 11:38 AM

    Perry Fewell and Jim Caldwell should get together and do nothing.

  17. johnnyjagfan says: Dec 2, 2011 11:39 AM

    I can see the Giants getting Bradshaw back with a defensive rebound running a few games off. Not like they’re afraid of an undefeated team.

  18. bangitfootball says: Dec 2, 2011 11:42 AM

    I hope the Giants show some pride and take Aaron Rodgers belt dance and his smirky smile and stick it up his ……..well , we see.

  19. rpiotr01 says: Dec 2, 2011 11:43 AM

    Seriously, whether they win or lose they should at least expect themselves to play hard for 60 minutes. A team as injured as that, there’s no shame in losing to NO on the road or even GB at home. But you need to compete.

  20. pftstory says: Dec 2, 2011 11:44 AM

    “Gaints win this week and shock the world. The always loss games their suppose to win (Seahawks) and win a game they are suppose to loss (Pats).”

    Then why didn’t they beat the Saints if they win the games rthey are supposed to lose?

  21. vegaskid21 says: Dec 2, 2011 11:45 AM

    Like my old man used to tell me,” It’s better to be ‘pissed’ off than it is to be ‘pissed’ on.

  22. hard2getausername says: Dec 2, 2011 11:48 AM

    Perry Fewell must be terrible at his job. Does he not realize Rodgers gets better when he scrambles out of the pocket? If he were smart they’d box him in and get hits while he’s still in the pocket. When the linebacker covering someone underneath comes up to cut off Rodgers he makes one route really easy and Rodgers will hit it.

  23. jrmbadger says: Dec 2, 2011 12:03 PM

    Good luck with that Giants.

    Giants may keep it close of a couple of quarters (and may even be winning) and then the Packers’ superior talent takes over and puts NY fans out of their playoff misery.

  24. riverhorsey says: Dec 2, 2011 12:06 PM

    Tuck fined himself? How much?

  25. zlmillerkazz says: Dec 2, 2011 12:06 PM

    The Giants have been plagued by injuries since the season started… but, they are still underachieving. The defense didn’t show up in New Orleans, yet they were able to shut down the Pats. Inconsistent.

  26. bspurloc says: Dec 2, 2011 12:14 PM

    Jean Pierre-Picard is going to sack Rodgers at least 2 times!

    Lets go 90!

  27. udwnwitjpp says: Dec 2, 2011 12:28 PM

    We will win i can smell all streaks come to a end my giants for sure kno about bustin streaks to shambles ask the pats

  28. andyreidcarboload says: Dec 2, 2011 12:31 PM

    Any logical Giants fan knows that the rash of injuries on the defensive side of the ball have finally caught up to them. When you lose your leading tackler (Thomas), your mike (Goff) and a completely innefective and banged up Tuck (which has been the case all year) then what do you expect? I’m not going crazy about this year, it is what it is.

  29. savoirlaire says: Dec 2, 2011 12:31 PM

    As a 40+ year Giant fan, I hope they lose, and lose, and lose until they fire the red-faced, puffy apoplectic embarrassment of a coach that they have. I have had it with Coughlin’s horrible coaching, his coach’s horrible playcalling, and his embarrassing demeanor. The players hate his stinkin’ guts, and frankly so do I. They completely quit two games in a row.

    Oh, he won a Super Bowl, you say? I don’t give a sh-t, fire him. NOW!!

  30. delsj says: Dec 2, 2011 12:35 PM

    Sounds like a guy hoping the blame falls on the players not him when they get blown out this week.

    “More so than discipline, we just have to get after his ass, okay?” – Translation in the locker room – “Our only chance to win is to knock Rodgers out of the game by whatever means necessary.”

  31. Land Snark says: Dec 2, 2011 12:43 PM

    Fewell would make a good Head Coach. Maybe Washington or Philly could steal him away.

  32. pigskinswag says: Dec 2, 2011 1:07 PM

    Can’t blame Fewell. I’m a Saints fan and I was pissed at the lack of effort from the Giants.

  33. nfl fan says: Dec 2, 2011 1:29 PM

    Show up like we do!

    I love Tuck and the D-line, but show some emotion on the sidelines, if you’re not going to show it on the field.

  34. DonRSD says: Dec 2, 2011 1:30 PM

    Why don’t we vet bump any wr’s at the line.
    The free releases for 15 yard is ridiculous.

  35. glac1 says: Dec 2, 2011 1:52 PM

    Every players pay should be incentive based upon individual as well as team results. The “union” is destroying this game just like they have destroyed so many industries across this land.

  36. techvet says: Dec 2, 2011 1:52 PM

    Homeland Security – code red in the Meadowlands. All jobs at risk. Fire in the hole!

  37. eduardoandradeiturribarria says: Dec 2, 2011 1:56 PM

    Yes, he is right! Sometimes it looks like if they were faking injuries!

  38. sschmiggles says: Dec 2, 2011 1:59 PM

    Too bad for him it takes aggression and discipline to beat a team like the Packers.

  39. pioniere says: Dec 2, 2011 2:32 PM

    They’ve stopped playing for Coughlin. He’ll be gone at season’s end.

  40. packrulzm says: Dec 2, 2011 2:37 PM

    As a Packer fan, this team scares the crap out of me. A pissed off Giants defense does not make for an easy game. Especially given that Sitton is out. While I still believe the Pack wins, I would not be at all surprised to see the Giants win with a strong (and pissed off!) defensive effort.

  41. infectorman says: Dec 2, 2011 2:46 PM

    Gints pull out a squeaker on a Rodgers sack/fumble in the 4th qtr. Jacobs rumbles into the endzone over Clay Mathews and AJ Hawks while simultaneoulsy tying their Pigtails into knots!!!!
    EnUF with the GD packers already.

    Now I know why everyone hates the Pats so much.

  42. jrmbadger says: Dec 2, 2011 2:50 PM

    It’s great to try and fire your guys up, but do it behind closed doors. Doing it in front of the press is foolish.

    Rodgers and the Packers dont need any more bulletin board material. The Green Bay papers have picked up on his little comments about wanting to hit Rodgers a lot and you can bet Mike McCarthy and Rodgers have seen it and its probably in the locker room already.

    The Packers have more talent and are a better team than the Giants. While it’s not impossible for the Giants or some other team to beat them, the way to do it is to catch the Packers napping and not ready to play. Lay low and stay under the radar. You don’t stir up the hornets nest before you spray the poison.

    If you can’t handle seeing successful teams hyped in the sports media, then you should just quit watching sports altogether…. cause there’s always going to be A Dominate Team that gets hyped up….

    save yourself the whiney tears and drivel and just stop watching baby.

    At first I thought this article was about Jane’s Addiction and it’s not. Darn.
