Dave Gettleman’s failures largely to blame for NY Giants’ 0-5 start and sizable gap between championship caliber teams across the NFL
The NY Giants‘ offense showed some promise in Sunday’s 37-34 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but still were unable to pick up their first win of the season despite facing the NFL’s lowest-ranked scoring defense.
Dominoes began to fall across the NFL with the firings of Houston Texans head coach/general manager Bill O’Brien and the Atlanta Falcons blowing out general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Dan Quinn.
Head coach Joe Judge isn’t in any danger at this point, but NY Giants co-owner John Mara would be doing his franchise a disservice if there are not serious conversations about general manager Dave Gettleman’s future throughout the executive suite of Quest Diagnostics Training Center this week.
The Giants are now Judge’s team, but the team Gettleman handed the first-time head coach this season is fatally flawed on both sides of the football, and looks lightyears away from being able to play meaningful football.
The only meaningful games the Giants will play this season will be the ones that impact whether they’ll own the No. 1 overall pick next April.
Even in the NFC East where the four teams have combined for four wins through 20 games, the Giants at 0-5 are a sinking ship in a river of burning napalm with no rescue boats in sight.
That starts with Gettleman.
