I've never heard of a GM not being able to to take credit for a Super Bowl win that happened 4 years into his tenure, and like you said.. he deserves credit for putting the pieces into place that helped us win SB42.
It's one thing to blame him for letting the LB and Oline sinking talent wise, I can't argue with that.. but some of things being said here are just stupid
How many GMs in the league have 2 rings and never had a losing season?
"They come to the line of scrimmage and the first thing they do is start looking for me....I know, and they know. When they’d find me they’d start screaming: 56 left ! 56 left!....So there’s this thing I did. After the play was over I’d come up behind them and whisper: don’t worry where I am. I’ll tell you when I get there."
- Lawrence Taylor
As for current GMs with 2 SB rings? There isnt anyone. Nevermind one with a QB or coach that was there before they became GM
Like I said, if you want to give Reese no credit for any of the players hes found being good, sure. But it works both ways. Cant complain about his "poor drafting" when its all just luck anyway, according to you.
If we win the Super Bowl this year, Reese doesn't deserve any credit
Because Accorsi drafted Eli and hired and Coughlin..
