The New York Giants are in the midst of yet another disappointing season, and wholesale changes are needed in the offseason if the Giants hope to transform into contenders next season. Here is part one of a multi-part breakdown on how the Giants can transform their team into a contender before next year, starting with general manager and coaching staff:
Somehow over the past three years, the New York Giants have gone from being one of the most respected franchises in all of the NFL to one of it’s biggest laughingstocks. Whether you want to put the brunt of the blame on Jerry Reese, Dave Gettleman, Ben McAdoo or Pat Shurmur, one thing is for certain – drastic change is needed to bring this once proud team back to relevancy.
Clearly Big Blue is short the talent needed to compete at a high level in this league, but the area is may be lacking the most at is in the executive and coaching department. A series of mediocre drafting, questionable free agent additions and two awful coaching hires in a row have led us to where we now are.
While it’s fine to disagree about how we got here, you would have to be a fool to not understand that the status quo needs to be blown up. In the first part of a multi-part breakdown, we’ll take a look at five executive/coaching moves that could set the Giants up for success moving forward.
Some of these moves could surely be considered far-fetched, and not easy to accomplish, but John Mara needs to pull out all the stops to get this team back on the right track.
