Giants “Settle” For Shurmur

Written by: Glenn Warciski

Like Saints defensive back Marcus Williams who whiffed tackling Vikings WR Stefon Diggs,  the Giants whiffed on the coach they wanted. Instead of having Matt Patricia as the 18th head coach in Giants’ history,  Mara settled for Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.

Why We Believe Matt Patricia is the Perfect Candidate to Become Giants Head Coach

So much for the no thanks we wrote about the other week regarding Gettleman. We move on and hope for the promise that Gettleman will learn from his past mistakes and experiences to move this organization back to relevance. It is a major positive to see Hart jettisoned as well as Marc Ross. We have our concerns about his insistence on running the draft room solo, which traces back to the sentiments of our December 13th post. Many of the same scouting faces and organizational structure remain. There is one prospect that will counterbalance and provide a fresh new approach to what we consider an old-school front office.

Gettleman Effect – NYG 18, Washington 10

Written by: Glenn Warciski

Credit Gettleman. The Giants defeated the Redskins 18-10 because they have a new sheriff in town. Last Thursday, in order to quell the discord surrounding the Giants-Eli Apple gotta-take-a-shit fiasco, and the Landon Collins cancer comment when referring to Eli Apple, the Giants announced they had hired their man. What Mara did was copying something Don Draper would do. Draper, a fictional advertising executive on the television show Mad Men, had the philosophy that if you do not like what is being said, change the conversation. Indeed, Mara did this, and the focus shifted from a dysfunctional team to a new day in Giants’ history.

Prophet’s Pulpit – NYG vs. Redskins Preview & Prediction

Written by: Tony “The Prophet” Yantosca

It’s official! The 2017 New York Football Giants are the worst team in Giants’ history, going back to 1925. They have lost 13 games – the most in their history – and hopefully, 14, so they lock in the #2 pick in the 2018 draft.

ARZ 23, NYG ZERO

Written by: Glenn Warciski

On Christmas Eve, the New York Giants did show up to play the Arizona Cardinals; however, they showed no signs of life. A listless 23-0 loss to a mediocre Cardinals team plunged the Giants into further chaos. With this latest loss, the Giants overall record stands at 2-13 ( 13 losses a franchise record), 0-11 in the NFC Conference and with the spirit of zeroes, the Giants are 0-5 in the NFC East. But, it gets worse. Throwing in this scoreless effort by the Giants, going back to 2012, the Giants have been shut out FIVE times. This is the fifth time they have been shut out in the last six years. Another ignominious statistic in the team’s 93-year storied history.

A Day of Overwhelming Sadness – Eli Manning Benched.

Written by: Glenn Warciski

November 28, 2017 = June 16th, 1994.

Like Phil Simms’ unexpected unceremonious departure in 1994,  the Giants announced Eli Manning will no longer be their starting quarterback.  Yesterday, a teary eyed and shocked Manning could not believe the Giants had dumped him for Geno Smith. History repeats itself, so let us compare what happened to Simms and Manning.
