He directly thanked Coughlin in that statement.

in Reese I Trust. Unfortunetly the last couple years especially this one weren't good.
For a long time  
dpinzow : 12/5/2017 2:48 pm : link
the motto here was "In Reese We Trust." Good statement. His time was up but for several years he was among the best at his job, especially when he was finding the talent for the 2007 team
He belongs in the

to last in any company or organization twenty-three years. Long time senior figures change jobs and employers all the time. This was Jerry's time.
nice statement. he deserves respect, was a loyal and mostly successful

employee for over 20 years. Should have been canned 2 years ago, but as others said, he shouldn't be treated as if he were McAdoosh.
I understand going out with class, like Reese did, but did

He have to mention McA**o?
Dang  
HoodieGelo : 12/5/2017 3:05 pm : link
The "Go Giants" at the end got me pretty good. Shame everything went down the way it did...I wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.
Well done  
RinR : 12/5/2017 3:09 pm : link
Took the high road as I suspected he would.

I do wish the New York "Football" Giants would stop. There hasnt been a New York Giants baseball team in almost 60 years. Not picking just on Reese; I remember Chris Berman using it all the time.

That's the official name of the team...it's never changing
Wish him the best  
WillVAB : 12/5/2017 3:14 pm : link
It was time to move on but his hands were on two teams that brought the fans two of the best SB victories of all time.
I think Jerry would thrive  
KeoweeFan : 12/5/2017 3:15 pm : link
in charge of scouting under a GM who establishes a long range vision.
Expected nothing but this from Reese.  
Beezer : 12/5/2017 3:34 pm : link

I was not always in love with the job he did, but he always seemed to go about things with class.

Well done, and best of luck.
Thanks Jerry  
RollBlue : 12/5/2017 3:40 pm : link
and good luck in your next job!

I can't understand why folks say he had a bad last couple of years - maybe OL related, but he nailed FA two years ago - bringing in 3 All Pro types.
wish him the best of luck  
bluepepper : 12/5/2017 3:45 pm : link
in his career. Some team will be glad to hire him for an important post. Maybe not right away but eventually he will get another crack at a GM job and deservedly so.
Once again  
HoustonGiant : 12/5/2017 3:58 pm : link
he fails to address the offensive line.

NVM I think it was sarcasm from your part.. I just didn't get it..
he had some impressive moves as GM  
japanhead : 12/5/2017 4:32 pm : link
his first couple of years with the team, led to SB 42. drafts went downhill after marc ross came on board. managed to attain nicks, manningham, cruz, boss, bradshaw, JPP in drafts and FAs like canty, rolle, boley, grant et al who all contributed to SB 46. some sick moves despite being hampered by the hiring of ross (which is ultimately on him), but the wheels came off these last 5 years and he helped botch the eli thing. he probably should have remained as director of college scouting but he had a good run through the 2nd SB win.
very dignified statement  
Vanzetti : 12/5/2017 5:24 pm : link
Jerry had a good run and I think most fans in time will come to appreciate him very much--if they don't already

You had a point?
He had a nice run  
KWALL2 : 12/5/2017 6:34 pm : link
Plenty of bumps but he won 2 SB. Had some terrible luck with quality draft picks getting hurt early.

It was time to move on for both parties.
I've always liked Reese. He's always struck me as a real person,  
baadbill : 12/5/2017 7:34 pm : link

Manny in CA : 12/5/2017 7:45 pm : link

But he did help deliver two Super Bowl victories; not bad at all.

Classy way to go out.
A Good GM  
Samiam : 12/5/2017 8:03 pm : link
Never was as good as in Reese We Trust but nowhere near as bad as the way many portray him here. I say again that all GM make mistakes and especially for later round picks, there isn't a GM of a good team who hasn't had his share of doozies. That said, in my opinion, were it not for one serious mistake. Reese would have keep this job. He did not, as man have said, ignore the OL. I think he thought put a group together and hope they stay healthy and the line would be be at least ok. Ands, if Pugh had stayed healthy and maybe Richburg and if Fluker started from day one and stayed healthy it might have worked. Still, as good as Engram might become, I dont see how Reese didn't go OL. And, if Engram was that much better than available OL,the draft one on round 2. And, if he couldn't or wouldn't find one in the draft, he needed to sign one of the better free agents in addition to Fluker.

It was Reese's stubborness with the OL that was his undoing. That said, his statement was classy.
Classy missive  
Modus Operandi : 12/5/2017 8:03 pm : link
Unlike some comments on this thread.
he'll land on his feet  
markky : 12/5/2017 8:14 pm : link
and he's probably smart enough to adjust his philosophy going forward.

if the investments he made in OL (two firsts and a second) had panned out things would have been very different for him.

and i expect he'll be in the ring of honor some number of years from now.
Reese had a lot of bad luck  
Les in TO : 12/5/2017 8:20 pm : link
Wilson Nicks Cruz Smith and Boss are guys who had their promising careers cut short or derailed by injuries. If place doesn't shoot himself that 2008 team was also shaping up as a super bowl contender Who knows what the offense would have looked like if they maintained their health.
He should have went with Coughlin IMO...  
Carson53 : 12/5/2017 9:32 pm : link
better late thane never, it's only been since 1979 around here! The Giants ownership may be starting to join the
21st century after all folks. This is actually progress.
Lets see who they bring in here. I was never a big fan,
but a classy exit I guess.
Of course he went out classy  
big canoe jeff : 12/5/2017 9:45 pm : link
He wants another job. Like peter King said today a gm in ny who only talks twice a year and loses deserves to get fired.
Quoting him a few weeks ago donít give up on Giants and HC the smartest guy in the room
No way Reese is a gm again.no media skills stuttering muttering idiot
Adios
Too many people  
Doomster : 12/5/2017 10:24 pm : link
are lumping Reese with McAdoo......

Mac was just in the right place at the right time, when he got the HC job....

Reese worked his way up to the GM job....But Reese has done nothing since 2011.....if OBj hadn't fallen all the way to the Giants, what would this offense have looked like these last 4 seasons?

It's amazing what has happened to this OL....from the failure of free agents, to using two firsts and one second round draft pick, that haven't panned out.....this OL is no better off now than after the 2012 season...

We had a glimpse of what an average linebacker, in the form of Beason, could do for this defense....and yet we neglected the position....we got out of cap hell, and then jumped right back in, with the 4 big signings on defense......

The last 5 seasons have been a horror show for Reese and this roster....

The question is, who replaces him? The pressure to turn this roster around will be great....never mind picking the next HC.....

Well, Gatorade Drunk and Fatman, do you remember when we didn't even have a few extra million, to re-sign the Black Unicorn? We couldn't sign anyone, because we had no cap room....we ended up with a bargain basement Myers....you remember him don't you? The guy who tripped over chalk lines? That was ONLY 5 years ago....

As soon as TC was gone, all of a sudden we had 200 M to spend on JPP, OV, Snacks, and Jenkins.....those 4 guys now represent almost 40% of the cap.....with Eli, that is like almost 55% of the cap...

Want to re-sign OBj? How about Collins? Where will the money be to sign free agents for the OL, linebackers, and depth?

This was Reese's parting gift to the NY Giants...

What???

We didn't sign Bennett, not because of cap issues, but because he wanted too much money vs. his value.

There are certain positions we didn't and won't overpay for.

I have no idea why you are confusing a player's production (tripping over chalk lines) vs. cap room? Myers was a bad signing, but it wasn't because we didn't have $$ to sign anyone else.

Being in cap hell means you have to cut people or not sign key pieces because you're unable to make moves - it isn't making a move that failed.

Those numbers are daunting especially when you consider they still need to rebuild this putrid O-line. Some big decisions will have to be made with the prospect of having to sign Collins and OBJ in the coming years. jerry may have left them with an untenable situation forcing a complete rebuild but I doubt they'll do that. That being said I think JPP and OV are probably the most overpaid DE tandem in the league, thanks,Jerry!
How overpaid to JPP and  
RollBlue : 12/6/2017 11:51 am : link
Vernon look last year? People bitch because they don't overpay Bennett, then we have two DEs who played at a fairly high level last year not play so good this year, and that's on the GM???
BTW, OBJ didn't fall into Reese's lap, many on here were livid we didn't take Martin or Donald.

Do you remember the lack of a pass rush last year from the front four?

Do you remember the Cleveland and Washington games where JPP had 5 of his 7 sacks? Mathematically, that means, in 10 other games he had 2 sacks....if ever a guy disappeared in big games last year, it was JPP, just like this year....

I give OV a pass for last year with all the injuries he played with last year.....this year he just can't stay on the field....

The reason the defense was good last year had more to do with our DB's and their pass coverage, than our pass rush....
Disagree....

We didn't overpay, mainly because we had no money to overpay....There is no such thing as overpaying, only when you have the money? Myers was a bargain basement substitute....want another example? How about Linval? Yup, no money for him either...
