No one, and we mean no one, needs any additional reasons to have an unreal amount of hate for former NY Giants general manager Dave Gettleman. Time and time again, Gettleman made some truly insane decisions that set back the organization for years. Leave it to Landon Collins to have your blood boiling when thinking about Gettleman once again.

Remember back in 2019 when Collins left East Rutherford and signed with Washington on his big deal? Hearts were broken in New Jersey and New York. How in the world could Collins abandon the G-Men to sign with an NFC East rival?

It was maddening then, but Collins shared why he left in the first place. Now, people are going to be even more angry with Gettleman.

Gettleman has to be kidding. It looks like Collins didn’t ever want to stop donning a Big Blue jersey, but Gettleman made it easy for him to walk away and play elsewhere. Washington putting a six-year, $84 million contract on the table was more than enough for Collins to jump ship in this case.

Having said that, Collins didn’t want to go anywhere. He loved the franchise and has made it clear from the moment he returned to the Giants that this is the place he loves calling home. Collins has also reminded people of how much he despises Gettleman, which is a sentiment that is shared by thousands of people.

Collins spent three seasons away from the Giants. Don’t forget that the man was a First Team All-Pro for NY in 2016. On top of that, he was a three-time Pro Bowler. Collins is hoping to retire as a Giant and that’s the way it should be.

Meanwhile for Gettleman, no one will ever forget all the embarrassing calls he made while in charge. The man should be banned from MetLife Stadium – he knows better than to ever show his face around there again.
