the worse things are, the greater the incentive to make changes. If the team were to finish 7-9, they might not want to spend a lot of money to clean house. But if they finish with 3 wins or less, I doubt the financial cost will be a big deal.

Steve Tisch is a billionaire, I believe -- the cost of retooling the Giants won't put a big dent in his accounts. The Giants are the Mara family business, so they have to be concerned about the value of the franchise, if nothing else.

We fans tend to think of owners as "cheap" (unless they're George Steinbrenner) but in the case of the Maras their problem is more one of excessive patience and misplaced loyalty.

It'll be almost impossible for a true blowup. I think.
Moving guys will help somewhat. If you can find buyers.
Dumping dung will be the easy part.
They didn't plan on clusterfail.
Go to for individual contracts.

Has monetary cost jumped the shark?
The blow up is at the top

Talent on both sides of the ball. The OL needs help. The defense has given up.

they have for years. Deal with it.
I don't think it is the money so much

as it is the salary cap that would be eaten up. You still have to field a decent team, and they would need to replace everyone they sent packing. That becomes very difficult when your salary cap is tied up in dead money
They can promote Chris Mara
