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.
