Giants DT Damon Harrison admits he knows nothing about the defense that the Cardinals ran while new defensive coordinator James Bettcher coached there, but he's ready to do whatever is asked of him.
Last season, the Giants gave up the second most yards in the NFL and was tied for 28th in points conceded. Ownership decided to clean house, firing GM Jerry Reese and head coach Ben McAdoo. Since the organization hired Pat Shurmur to replace McAdoo, the new coach brought his own coaches in, including Bettcher to be the new defensive coordinator, replacing Steve Spagnuolo.
"I know absolutely nothing," Harrison said when asked what he knew about Bettcher's defenses in Arizona, via Paul Schwartz of NY Post.
The speculation is that the Giants will switch from a 4-3 defense to 3-4, something that Harrison is ready to learn.
"If that's what we have to do, that's what we have to do,'' Harrison said. "I just don't have enough information to really talk about those guys. I've done it my whole career. It wouldn't be a problem. I just have to watch some film. I don't know anything. Whatever they need me to do, I'll do it."
Harrison is optimistic about Bettcher and the coming season for the Giants defense.
"I think he will get us back on the right track,'' Harrison said. "I like the way he thinks and his vision.''
