    SMH at some of the people on these boards..

    While I realize most of us have been lifelong fans, as I myself have been a Giants fan for twenty eight years, but I think often people forget they're just fans. They feel like they have a personal stake in the franchise and that they somehow know something that nobody else does and that's how to right the ship that is the New York Football Giants.

    I understand that a lot of people here have a great amount of football knowledge, but at the same time I think people forget we're missing large pieces of the puzzle. We're not privledged to what's going on behind the scenes. There is always so much blame going around.. It's Reese's fault, it's Coughlin's fault, it's McAddo's fault, it's Spagnuolo's fault.. The thing is we have no idea who's fault it is. There are questions about Reese's drafts, but both Reese and Coughlin have come out and said that Coughlin has input on draft choices as well. People forget that and put it solely on Reese. There is no way for us to know who's been the main person behind each pick. There have been questions about Coughlin influence on McAdoo's strategy and play calling, but again there is no way for us to know how much.

    As Mara is making choices for the future on the franchise we have to understand that he's the one person who knows what's going on. He's talked to Reese, Coughlin, coordinators, and players. He knows what needs to be done and he's doing what he thinks is best to push forward and restore the franchise to a competitive state. So, lets have a little faith in the guy, because even if you're somebody who doesn't like the McAdoo hire because it's not sexy or he doesn't have enough experience he's still our head coach and only time will tell. There are a lot of positives happening.. $50-$60 million in cap space, injuried players that will be healthy, and a draft pick in the top ten. Lets focus on the positive, get on board, and support our team.

    I agree 100% with the following John Mara comments:



    "Let's be honest, we have lost some credibility as an organization...."

    "Listen, we have had three losing years in a row, and a lot of that is due to some personnel decisions that have been made...."

    Jerry knows this is on him," Mara later reiterated. "I've had that discussion. You can't hide from the record. It's up to you now to get it fixed because the last three years are just not acceptable....

    "The record indicates we do not have enough championship-caliber players."

    That's the kind of stuff that is really uncalled for. If you don't agree with someone, there's no need to reply with insults
    Everyone has the right to be stupid. Some just abuse the privilege.

This is not a great place for intelligent football discussion. You have to get through the trash to find the good ones but they are out there.
    Well.....you don't have to be here, you know?

    John Mara was sending Tom out on a positive note so I take his words with a grain of salt, which is not to say our college and pro personnel decisions have been fantastic throughout Reese's tenure.

    While it's the GM's job to sign the players. it's the coaches job to decide who plays and that in itself is a "personnel decision".

    We know for a fact that John Mara did not feel our coaching staff was doing a satisfactory job with our young guys because he made it known publicly years ago.

    I understand the questions surrounding our team right now, but like the OP said, let's have a little faith in John Mara and Jerry Reese - if for no other reason than it's the best alternative we have as fans.

    Exactly.

    If everyone insulted someone when they thought their post was stupid than we'd pretty much have this place.

    We're already there Rosy. I for one don't find the board fun anymore. It's missing the good natured fun of years ago. Now it's Internet tough guys hurling insults.
