Lastly there may be somebody working in a decision-making capability for the Giants who understands that the precedence in enhancing this group have to be to right its offensive line.
“There are some high quality gamers on this roster,” new GM Dave Gettleman stated Friday. “(However) we gotta repair the O-line, let’s be sincere. Let’s not child one another.”
What a refreshing remark for Giants followers to listen to after ex-GM Jerry Reese’s and co-owner John Mara’s continued ignorance on this topic expressed as just lately as these previous couple of months.
Mara rationalized Dec. four when firing Reese: “We had just about the identical offensive line final yr and regardless that our offense was not significantly good final yr, it was adequate to win 11 video games. We thought that group would take a step ahead this yr and even now, half of them have gotten harm, it is simply been an unattainable scenario.”
Reese, who did not even pursue high left sort out Andrew Whitworth in free company, stated in the course of the season that the Giants’ offensive line was “akin to lots of groups across the Nationwide Soccer League” and that the Giants determined to stay with what they’d partly as a result of they “wish to be a youthful offensive line.”
Fortunately, Gettleman, the brand new Giants GM, is prioritizing having a greater line over having a youthful one.
