Reese Quotes From Today’s Presser

GM Jerry M Reese took questions after Coach Tom Coughlin this afternoon… they were very much on the same page, here are some highlights:

• on the inconsistency of the Giants play, particularly at the end of the season:

“I think it starts with physical play, and we were physical half of the time”

“It’s a combination of issues that are going to be evaluated.”

• on change in leadership:

“We already have leaders on this team, but they have to come forward”

“We expect them to do it”

• on whether or not the team simply gave up:

“No. We look for that on tape and that was not the case.”

“Just a case of trying and not playing well.”

• on why the team seemed to fold after beating Dallas:

“It’s the NFL – there are no bad teams. You have to show up on Sundays.”

“Everyone is in the evaluation process right now.”

• on Brandon Jacobs and his injuries/future as a 16 game back:

“I hope he can come back.”

“It’s minor surgery, he should be able to come back”

• on the lack of running game this year:

“Gotta get our identity back. We are a team built on the power running game – that is who we are.”

So what was the issue then Jerry?

“Part of the evaluation, is it the offensive line? Is it the running backs?”

• on the draft class of 2009

“I’ve been happy with it.”

Reese specifically mentioned RB Andre Brown and WR Ramses Barden as being strong contributors going forward and that they have “bright futures”.

• on the effectiveness of the young recievers:

“One of the questions coming into the season that was answered”

“Might have had too many receivers”


So whether or not Bill Sheridan is fired, it’s clear Coughlin and Reese are on the same page and are working together to closely evaluate the downfall of the 2009 Giants who started off at 5-0.

It’s clear they want to make some very calculated decisions before they let us in on anything specific, such as personnel changes that would effect the future of one Bill Sheridan.

We’ll keep you updated as soon those decisions are made.

    When are Reese and Coughlin going to realize that the Giants are on the verge of becoming a major passing team and not a power running team? Let’s talk about reevaluating shall we?
