Despite the NY Giants late-season playoff push, Dave Gettleman remains on the hot seat.
At the start of this season, fans assumed that the NY Giants general manager Dave Gettleman would be on the chopping block. After two abysmal years, the team that he built started 0-5.
But as fans began to sharpen their pitchforks to run him out of town, the Giants miraculously began winning games. In the putrid NFC East, the effort of the Giants started pulling ahead. And the team entered the bye week in a legitimate hunt for the division title.
This possible playoff berth has given Gettleman the benefit of the doubt, at least for the time being. The Giants are notorious when it comes to retaining management; their reluctance to fire Jerry Reese caused many of the problems Gettleman inherited.
But this is now Gettleman’s team. Aside from a few holdovers from the previous regime, these are the players the Giants GM hand selected.
With that in mind, let’s review the biggest reasons for and against keeping Gettleman.
