John Fennelly, Lead WriterThe Giants are moving forward whether you like it or not. This morning, Jerry Reese will be in his office and Tom Coughlin, Kevin Gilbride and Perry Fewell will oversee the team’s practice. They’re all still here. Sorry, fans but don’t expect any radical changes until after the season is over.
Everything is business as usual as the Giants gear up for their next game, to be played a week from Monday in Minnesota.
Yesterday, we wrote an “optimistic view” of the remainder of the season. I guess no one got the theme. ”An optimistic view” is one where there are no negatives. The best case scenario. The “head in the sand” approach.
Was it realistic? Of course not. Much of the stinging criticism of the Giants has been dead on, but now it’s become a piling-on exercise. Overkill. That is why we decided to sift through the rubble to see if there is anything to salvage. And that is what we found.
If the Giants do happen to rise from the dead this Halloween, we want the credit. For now, however, praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! We’re not leaving our foxhole.
I was asked three things the Giants need to do to turn things around. Perhaps the easiest question I’ve ever been asked…
1. Stop turning the ball over.
2. Get pressure on the passer.
3. Run the football.
I know, easily said.
