Reese identifies Giants’ problems; solutions forthcoming

Giants GM Jerry Reese also appeared with Mike Francesa on WFAN this afternoon.

“Disappointed. That’s the number one word I can come up with,” Reese said when asked by Frnacesa to sum up the season in one word.

“When you go 7-9, you know there’s personnel issues but when you start 0-6 it’s more than personnel issues,” Reese said.


Some snippets:

Reese, like Mara before him, pointed to improving the offensive line as the front office’s main concentration this offseason. He mentioned Justin Pugh, Will Beatty and James Brewer as three players they plan to build around, but the latter two must play better.

He also said the team also likes Eric Herman and Brandon Mosely, two draft picks the team are developing. He also said the team will seek free agents and would be willing to spend some cash to bring the right people in.

Reese believes impending free agent DE Justin Tuck still has “some tread on the tires.”

It doesn’t look like TE Brandon Myers is the answer at TE. Nothing wrong with the man’s eyesight.

On if JPP can return to form: “We sure hope so, cause he’s one of the guys we depend on.”

Reese admitted RB David Wilson will have neck surgery and believes he will play this season.

On WRs….Rueben Randle ‘faded at the end’; Nicks needs to ‘pay attention to what he’s doing’ and Jernigan was always talented – injuries and emergence of Victor Cruz held back his development.

The problem is simple to see from ownership down everything is predictable. They sit with the 12th pick and they'll pick 12th even if no one else has that player rated on their board. To many holes to fill so get creative move back snag an extra 2 picks.

They will hire Sullivan as their OC a guy whose offense ranked in the lower half of the league. Just because they know him and his offensive playbook looks identical to Gilbride's.

They'll ignore the LB's again this year, which considering the top 5 defense's in the league rely heavily on their LB's. And lastly they sign two mediocre OL who are on the decline in their careers instead of signing 1 very good 1 and a good one and building the rest of the team through the draft.

After watching that OL last year maybe it's time to truly upgrade the OL and give Eli and the offense a chance to succeed.

without catching teams with backup qb's our record would be much worse and be a better indicator of our real worth, we are not even a 7-9 team with the talent we have and those three or four wins will stunt our path back to being competitive for a champ.

@Skookaloop well I agree the contracts given to David Bass, Kiwanuka, and Myers were all awful contracts, but Jerry Reese is one of the best GM's in this game, no doubt about it. I think your forgetting this man is a 2x Super Bowl winning GM. Enough said. Who else in the NFL can say that besides the man in New England?

@vincent  It's easier to ignore Skookaloop, rather than engage with him.  He;s one of those "Win it all or go 0-16" fans.  There's no middle ground with him.  It's either all right, or all wrong.
