  • A GM without a clue

    I was reading an article in the New York Post saying that we shouldnt expect any big moves this year....and its almost mind boggling because Eli restructured, Jacobs was cut, and Mckenzie was asked to go shop somewhere. Dont get me wrong Jacobs and Mckenzie probably did have to go, but why is it that we are still cap strapped? Why is he asking Jacobs two straight seasons to restructure went when have Antrel Rolle and Chris Canty was bloated contracts. Because Restructing contracts will still be a problem in the future.

    Eli Manning restructuring his contract was to give us some relief this upcoming season but its not. Instead Eli's base salary will ballon up to $20M the year after...and GUESS WHAT? We will be cap strapped again next year. Way to go Jerry Reese....lets hope Reese can at least draft some linemen to keep the savior of this organization, Eli Manning alive.

    I dont understand why Reese gets so much credit. He clearly can not manage the cap. Reese seems to draft very well, but maybe he needs some help in the financial part of the business.

    I think the new CBA caught Reese by surprise.

        I'd like to take the time to inform everyone that the OP believes that being a GM is not that hard of a job and that anyone can do it. Just a heads up before any of you decide to waste your time providing him with a legitimate response

          I Never saw the details of Eli's restructure just read it would save us alot of money on this years cap! Its Does not even make sense for Eli to restructure this way! Unless the money is guaranteed I mean what if he gets hurt! Hell they could cut him!!

                  Wow...you know all the ins and outs of being a GM. I guess maybe you should be a consultant for the NYG. I am sure the Mara's and Tisch's will be thankful to you.




                  Please man....I think the NYG are capable of keeping themselves afloat within the confines of the cap.

                    I will take the cap problems along with 2 Super bowl wins. Seems like a pretty good deal to me.

                      What team would you like Reese to have this team be like?

                        I think a better question would be is who should we look to hire if we are getting rid of Reese since he's such a failure?

THe diffrence being that Reese is so good at drafting, that it isn't a huge deal, because guys like Mitch Petrus, James Brewer, Jerrell Jerrnigan, Prince Amukumura, Jaquain Williams, JPP,Ballard, Beatty,and others are all ready to step in and step it up or all ready have...

                              Jerry handles all the contracts personally, without any of our 20 financial consultants. He opens his fridge, grabs a beer ( a Pabst), gets shmammied and then calls their agents to talk shop.


                              HE NEEDS TO GO!
