If you haven't listened to Mr. Reese's, end of season press conference,DON'T. However since misery loves company, I'll share some interesting highlights with you. While fumbling, (pardon the unintended pun), for answers Mr. Reese offered us none but he did provide some gems for us to ponder for the upcoming months. For instance,
Yes Webster got burnt but teams were targeting those receivers and the cornerback position is a hard and LONELY one.
He's not a coach so his knowledge of some things is limited. I was hoping he knew the game of football and his team well enough to be able to discuss the problems with coaches. Maybe that's why TC and company get to take us on the roller coaster ride each year.
Wilson is a "world class athlete" and a potential star but he fumbled the ball in his first ever NFL game which upset the coaching staff so we benched a highly talented athlete. Of course Bradshaw and especially Barber, in the beginning of his career, fumbled plenty. He thought that not playing Wilson in the rotation was a sound move.
He feels sacks are somewhat over rated. We just needed to throw the QBs off their "spot". Also,he said that there are a lot of talented coaches in the NFL and they are coming up with great ways to stop our pass rush. Personally, I was thinking we would have talented coaches that figure out ways to stop them from stopping us. I thought that sacking a QB and pushing our opponent back 8 to 10 yds.with a loss of down was the ultimate way to throw the QB off his spot. I would settle for 3 to 5 sacks per game especially when you' re almost certain it's a passing down.QBs don't like being hit. It kind of throws them off their game.
He said something, to the effect, that we have talented LBs but I wasn't sure if he wants better ones. I suppose he does and since they will probably come from the draft, we may have to wait until 2014 to start them. I'm beginning to think even if they find another LT,(if that's possible), we may bench him if he misses one tackle.
Well it lifted up my spirits like a lead balloon.Sorry, I was never a Reese fan. He pops his head up once in awhile and provides us with these marvelous insights.Earn your pay, Mr. Reese, work the cap and get us some veterans that can and want to play. Oh, I forgot he loves OSI, A player who often gets pushed out so wide he's beginning to look like part of the sideline.
Well anyway, Happy New Year to everyone out there including all the members of the Giant's organization. We may ride them alot be we always wish them the best.
