James Bettcher's first season came with giant limitations

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur wasn't exaggerating when he mentioned this was a "different" kind of season for defensive coordinator James Bettcher.

Bettcher is a coach accustomed to leading top-10 defenses, which he did in each of his three seasons as a coordinator in Arizona. He is used to playing uber-aggressively and attacking opposing quarterbacks with blitzes from every direction.
