This is what rock bottom looks like, New York Giants
Poor drafts, poor signings, poor roster management have buried Giants
Dave Gettleman ends his tenure as New York Giants general manager with a 19-46 record, and there might not be an individual not named John Mara more responsible for the organization’s backslide into irrelevancy.
Gettleman’s antiquated NFL Draft philosophies, inability to manage the salary cap, and free agency failures have set his successor up to be tasked with mining four new starting offensive linemen while needing to figure out whether Daniel Jones is the answer at quarterback, among other pressing questions.
Over the past two seasons, the New York Giants are 10-23, and the organization is tied with the New York Jets for the most losses in the NFL since 2017.
This isn’t a case of Philadelphia 76ers fans’ fervent passion for the organization losing to acquire top draft picks that ultimately became Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, while cheering on Sam Hinkie as he tore down the roster to create cap space in hopes of luring LeBron James or other superstars to Philadelphia.
No, this is not a “The Process,” I was an on-air sports radio host for 97.5 FM The Fanatic in Philadelphia during Hinkie’s teardown, this is a botched philosophy of aiming to win with one toe in the rebuilding pool.
The New York Giants tried to rebuild while winning, but instead turned off a fan base who knew the philosophy was fatally flawed, and destined to fail. Which it has. Spectacularly.
