Let's do something right now that I don't think we have ever done in the nearly three-year (yes, it's amazingly been that long) history of Big Blue View. A Big Blue View mailbag.
In case you had not noticed, I have been tagging many recent posts with the Big Blue View e-mail address. So, if you have questions or comments you want to send directly to me rather than leave in a post on the site, you can do that. Here is some of what I have received recently.
Jason, whose screen name I could not find, sent in the following question.
A: My thought is this. The whole problem with the 'understudy' angle is that Sheridan WAS the understudy. Spagnuolo always used to say Sheridan was the guy he ran blitz packages by and went to for suggestions. Defensive backs coach Peter Giunta was St. Louis defensive coordinator for three seasons, including 1999 when they won the Super Bowl. He's a logical internal replacement for Sheridan. Some might even say he should have been the choice in the first place.
My recent article on Peter King leaving Michael Strahan off his All-Decade Team also brought in some e-mails.
Here is one from Gio (no screen name).
Here is one from Eric (no screen name).
Brewer5 writes the following.
(Peter King) is a Giant hater. I think he enjoys pissing us off and I write him nearly every week to complain about his latest slight to the Giants. My theory is that Tom Coughlin has not kissed his butt at one time or another and he has decided to bust Giant fans chops every chance he gets. Strahan is just the latest.
