DC Steve Spagnuolo: We got to get to the quarterback more, no question about it

New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said he was proud of his unit and the way they played in Week 1, but getting to the quarterback seems to be something he'll have to figure out after a lack of pressure on Cowboys Tony Romo in the season opener. “We got to get to the quarterback more, no question about it,’’ Spagnuolo said, via New York Post. “How...

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...
