Fly on the wall.

Fly on the wall.

My opinion; today John Mara and Jerry Reese responded to the end of their long difficult season. There are a lot of people who thought along with these two men that the talent was there for a playoff run. However that was not the case.

So here are a couple questions that I hope are asked and answered when the meetings take place with Mara, Tisch, Reese and Coughlin later this week!

1.Why does there seem to be a disconnect between drafting talented players and getting them to the field – and why does it take so long? Wilson – Moore – Jernigan – Hosley…

2. Jerrel Jernigan could have changed the whole dynamic of this year’s team including the Victor Cruz deal and letting go of Martelious Bennett. What happened?

3.Why was David Wilson banished to the sidelines for half a season instead of
Having an offense designed for his abilities…a player with such dynamic abilities. And being worried about his protecting Eli is a ridiculous excuse!

4.Does this team over coach its players?

5.Are there enough good position coaches?

6.Who has the last word on player development and coach hiring’s? Reese or Coughlin?

If I were in that meeting, I would strongly suggest that Jerry Reese have the last word on player development and coach hiring’s. Enough said!

Book it Dano!

    Solid questions Dano, hopefully the Giants braintrust can provide answers. Who are they? the 0-6 team that started the season or the less than spectacular 7-3 squad that finished the year? It seems as though ownership and management are at a loss to explain the 0-6 start. TC better have an answer for the terrible start which effectively ended any chance for a meaningful season. More importantly TC needs to provide his bosses with explanations for how this won’t happen again in 2014.

    The Giants braintrust will be under tremendous pressure next year to right this ship and return to the playoffs. I expect management and ownership will desire changes to TC’s staff for 2014 and a demonstration of more willingness to play the young guys. These may be areas in which TC may oppose. Ownership may also either offer TC only a 1 year extension or no extension at all, TC will suggest this somehow undermines his authority in the locker room.

    On the surface we see a ‘unified’ organization with ownership, management, and the coaching staff all on the same page. I believe the talks upcoming this week may show signs of a fissure among the braintrust that will lead to staff changes for next season. Also, I believe the days of JR making ‘pet project’ picks during the draft will be ended by ownership as well.

    It was good to view the end of season press conferences, Giants ownership is indeed patient, great to see ownership has a pulse and see’s what we see.

    Your #5 on Position Coaches. Definitely need answers. Gilbride’s offense didn’t perform, and that’s on him and his staff. Was there a position coaching failure due to nepotism? Gilbride Jr didn’t succeed as WR coach, and Sean Ryan isn’t the right QB coach. Gilbride Sr. failed to establish a QB coach benchmark against which all candidates would be judged, and instead made room for his son to coach WRs, and thereby provided Eli with a QB coach who has no real business being a QB coach. Ok, so WR coach promotion to QB coach worked before… rolled the dice and didn’t come up craps. Doesn’t mean those dice never roll craps… Victor Cruz stated the WRs have lost connection with Eli. Gilbride Jr is craps. A QB coach benchmark example would be Tom Clements in Green Bay, who tutored Aaron Rogers, coached Bret Favre down from 29 INTs to 18 the following season, was QB coach with Steelers and Saints, was 2 time CFL champion QB, and All-American QB at Notre Dame. Did the job successfully, coached successfully, and tutored one of the best in the game today. How does Sean Ryan stack up against that benchmark? No comparison. Gilbride’s staffing decisions were not in the best interest of the team, and it could be argued those decisions had an adverse affect on Eli’s performance and the performance of the WRs. Gilbride needs to go, and take his son with him.

      Add the Offensive Line Coach to those who must go, he has been around with the Giants long enough and has not shown the ability to develop the necessary quality depth among his group recently. We can certainly question the talent acquisition on the O line conducted by JR, we can also question the ability of the O line coach to develop the talent he has been provided.

    DP AND Buljos!

    You are both football savvy…

    Why people don’t read the signs I’ll never know…the Giants defense set records last year for giving up over 6.000 total yards! The worst in Giants history…and yet there were no changes to the defensive coaches that equates to an o-6 start. Giants management accepted the concept that it was the players who where at fault and not the coaches…remember this team was going o-7 until Reese traded for Jon Beason. 2 and 14 was a possibility.

    The problem here is simple when you suggest that Gilbrides decisions where not in the best interest of the team…”Hello”…where is TC who makes almost 7 million a year and all the decisions it sounds like KG is running his own organization. It all rides on TC and Mara is going to let him skate once again…Don’t give up on JR just yet in fact I would demand he get more power…not TC!
