Just when it seemed that the The New York Giants wouldn't be making any coaching moves this off-season, they shocked us.
Wednesday morning the Giants announced that they are parting ways with both Perry Fewell and Peter Giunta. Amid a thunderous fan reaction, some Giants players also made their thoughts known.

I will always remember Coach Giunta's combine speech about being a professional in the National Football League. Wishing him the best.— Nat Berhe (@NatBerhe) January 7, 2015

Even former Giants players are reacting to the news:
Hope coach Peter G gets a job soon helluva coach who had a heart for his players and a solid man! Can't say that about a lot of people today— Charles James II (@ShutDownCB1) January 7, 2015
"@art_stapleton: Can also confirm Giants are parting ways with CB coach Peter Giunta." Wow!!!!!!!!!! Noooooooooooooooo— Charles James II (@ShutDownCB1) January 7, 2015
Coach Fewell and coach Giunta are two of the best men I played for. I'm positive that was a tough move for Tom to make. #giants— david tollefson (@DTollefson71) January 7, 2015
