  • What player will define Jerry Reese's tenure?

    EA will forever be associated with Eli Manning as Eli is, without a doubt, EA's biggest contribution to the team. So I started wondering, who will Jerry Reese most likely be remembered for?

    Victor Cruz
    JPP
    David Wilson
    Ryan Nassib (If he's a bust)


    In anticipation for the new season, I started watching some of last year's highlight videos. David Wilson........ I can't recall ever seeing a New York Giant with so much speed AND agility (I'm in my mid 30s BTW). . As goos as Victor Cruz and JPP are, I think Wilson will be special.

    I can't think of one player, but when I think of Reese I always think of the 2007 draft class. The best production I've seen out of a rookie class for any team.
    Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

      Many will say that EA was still the mastermind behind that class.

        Matt Dodge.

        Or maybe JPP ... who knows.
        I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

          I would say either JPP or a future draft pick that becomes the next "franchise QB". He took a chance in the first round on JPP who didn't have a big resume to say the least and if he stays healthy might be one of the best defenders in the league for the next decade.

          Cruz - Could be. If he continues this production, from an undrafted F/A. That is a huge find for any GM.

          Wilson - With the two headed running attacks that this regime loves to use. He probably won't put up gawdy AP type numbers so it probably won't be him.

          Nassib - You really can't be a bust if you're drafted in the 4th round. Certainly not a bust that would define a GM's legacy. Plenty of 4th round players don't pan out. I really don't think that JR thinks he drafted Eli's replacement here. Just a guy they can develop that will be a solid back up or trade chip.

          The easy answer to the question. Jerry is wearing his legacy on two fingers right now, and by the time he's done maybe more.

            Not so much success for that class after 2007 though, so I hope that's not the class that defines him.

              I don't think it will be one player. He's wheel and deal'ed with multiple components, some stars with others smaller cogs, that came together as a whole which is what building a complete team is about.

              By comparison, I think Ozzie Newsome is known for the same despite having iconic players like Lewis and Reed.

                Kevin Colbert too for that matter.

                  How is EA the mastermind for the 07 draft? He was not involved in any way

                    Ive never heard anyone say that until just now. Considering that Reese was Accorsi's top scout and right hand man that statement makes no sense

                          Cruz/Nicks combo. Never had anything like it before.

                            Unless you land a franchise QB, you're not likely gonna be defined by a single player. Reese has been lucky to not need to find a franchise QB; he's only had to pay for one. That's not to discount what he's done at all, I'm just praising his body of work over a specific move. People are praising Elway for being an incredible executive, but aside from drafting a can't-miss guy in Miller, and signing a first-ballot lock in Peyton, I'm not entirely convinced.
                            My body was sculpted to the proportions of Michelangelo's David.
