    I think alot of the bad stuff that happened led to us winning the Superbowl's we've won, if you really consider the butterfly effect of decisions its hard to really want to change anything.

Ray Handley was one of the fools who hung around, and was promoted to Offensive Coordinator. Parcells kept threatening to quit, but was still there through the draft, and even for ROOKIE MINI CAMP which was somewhere in late May. Far too late to interview new head coaches and for them to bring in a new staff. THEN Bill Parcells quit, leaving the Maras holding the bag. Too late to bring in a new staff. That's when Ray Handley got the job.

    What exactly were they supposed to do? They trusted Parcells, and got burned.
    I agree. Parcells is often looked at with Rosey glasses around here and he absolutely did leave the organization in a messy state.

    However, that doesn't absolve the organization of not preparing for Parcells departure, especially when he threateneedd to do it repeatedly.

    If you wife threatens to leave you in a serious and public manner every day for weeks. Would you be all that surprised to come home 1 day and found her gone?

    The organization was screwed for sure but they are partly to blame for it as well because they were warned it would happen and they did not prepare at all.

    Would it be releasing someone they should have never released ?

    Or would it even signing someone they should have but didn't ?

    If I could change anything it would be that no call in the NFC wildcard. Game against the 49ers
    Blatant pass interference !!!! How about you guys?
    Chris Carter. Would of made sure he came in for the visit and not let Minny sign him before we talked to him
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!

    In hindsight, they should have prepared a succession plan -- which is not something they're very good at here. We have let Hall of Fame coaches walk away -- Lombardi, Landry, and Belichick. They would go on to create dynasties for other teams instead of for the Giants; they would win 10 championships for other teams while the Giants had their darkest periods.

    I hope they are making preparations now, for when Coughlin hangs it up.

    But anyway, perhaps they placed their bets on Parcells bluffing. Do you think if they offered the job to Belichick he would have taken it, or do you think he would have been loyal to Parcells? Do you think they should have fired Parcells (a 2x SB winner) instead of waiting for him to quit?

    You know how loyal Wellington was, I'm guessing he was holding out hope that Parcells would do the right thing, and I'm sure he was supremely disappointed in the way it played out. I'm sure it genuinely hurt him.
