Source: Giants to Use Running Back by Committee


Giants running backs coach Jerald Ingram said the team will use a running back by committee as best they can to try and keep players healthy and other teams off balance. Ingram said all the running backs have something to give because they all contribute in their own way. He said the game plan in trying to figure out what they can do depends on who they are playing. Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said the player who has the hot hand and is ready to play will earn the carries. Ingram said they are not worried about who starts because the opportunities will be there. They want to keep a good balance and keep players as fresh as possible.

    Mr. John K Mara
    Harrison, NY

    Dear Mr. Mara,

    I am writing not as a Giants fan, but as the wife of a long time Giants fan. My husband and his family have been season ticket holders for over 40 years. They have followed the team regardless of the location or the quality of the product you have put on the field. In the ten + years I have known my husband, he has missed only one game…for our wedding.

    I have always felt your ticket prices were disproportionate to the experience, but who am I to interfere with a family tradition. I just read about the price for the personal seat license. As you can imagine, being a 40+year season ticket holder, my husband’s seats fall in the $20,000 + category. Now, I’m not going to lie to you, we’re probably one of the few ticket holders in this category who can afford to pay this price outright; but we’re not. If you are going to ask us to invest upwards of $40,000 in your product, you are going to have to give us (as well as other investors) a better answer than “the price of the new stadium went over budget”. For the record, that answer hardly inspires confidence in the financial leadership of this venture.

    No, you owe it to your “investors” to provide a detailed explanation for the overtures, complete financial records as well as a sound financial plan for the future. At that point, investors will have been given the appropriate information to decide on the level of their investment. I do not expect you to call each season ticket holder directly, but I do expect you to call my husband (Alexander B Swingle—xxx-xxx-xxxx). We will be happy to help you arrange a town hall meeting at which you can personally discuss the above.

    Looking forward to hearing from you
