... there were far too many instances — even before the injuries started to occur — where the defense gave up a big play, the result of confusion by the players not being certain what to do.

There's nothing wrong with Steve Spagnuolo as a defensive coordinator candidate for the New York Giants. They know him. They like him. Tom Coughlin is comfortable with him, and he'd excite a good portion of the fan base with memories of the 2007 season and Super Bowl XLII.

Potential replacements

Everybody has a list. Here are some of them:
