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.
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.
