Gettleman=Reese=Accorsi=Young

NYBEN1963 : 3/13/2018 6:26 pm
It's early in the process and I hope that I am wrong but this is what I was afraid of with the Gettleman hiring ...the same old way of doing things ...just no creativity or aggressiveness. I like the Ogletree trade but this roster needs a infusion of talent quickly and the fan base needs something to get excited about. I'm not saying DG is sleep at the wheel but it is time to get out of the old Giant was of doing business and go out and make some sexy moves...do something besides resign Mark Herzlich and bringing in a back that should not even make the team.

meaningless signings. I do believe you need veterans at every position group just to point the kids in the right direction.

Not even into official FA yet and he's a bust. Great analysis.

Thanks but I never said he was or wasn't a bust ...just saying it looks like more of the same from the last 3 GM's and as I said it is still early. Try reading the post and not being so quick to be a smart ass

Weird post. Reese was not a passive GM by any means.

Whether he was good or not is up for debate - and I'm not interested in getting into that now, but "sexy moves" was basically the JR forte for a while.

Reese had 2 off-season where he identified players he wanted... the year the brought in Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard, and of course 2 years ago.They all learned from George Young who prided himself on patience ..which can be a good thing most of the time.

I think I'll do whatever I want but since we're giving out advice: Maybe don't make stupid posts in day 1 of FA and less than 6 months into a GMs tenure making conclusions.
You hope youíre wrong?  
djm : 3/13/2018 6:47 pm : link
You do realize that every prior GM to gettleman has a resume that most GMs would kill for?

Yea Reese was aggressive in FA

The plan is to rebuild the team. Big name free agents are a luxury - none of them will sign here anyway - and I think this team will be looking for young 2nd and 3rd tier guys.

This team will pick high - a QB or Barkley - and will suck again next year and get another top 5/10 pick. That's what rebuilding means.

This isn't a worst to first candidate. This team has been looking for the quick fix every year since 2013 and only once, the mirage of 2016, did it work. DG is trying the patient approach and it will take some time.

Had one really good year. One terrible year.

I'll take a playoff berth - would have been home game but the best team in the NFC was in our division, it happens - and a year where we can select the #2 overall pick... over two mediocre ones.
I agree

christian : 3/13/2018 8:11 pm : link
The 2016 FA class looks completely fine right now. The obsession with wanting those players to not do well is super weird.

Vernon, Snacks, and Jenkins all had terrific years in 2016. Snacks had a terrific year in 2017, Jenkins and Vernon were hurt.

Those players are still young vets and the building blocks for what hopefully is no more than 1-2 year rebuild to get back into contention.
I want them to do well  
Go Terps : 3/13/2018 8:20 pm : link
I'm just not going to bullshit myself into believing they've actually earned their contracts. And as for them being young building blocks, JPP and Jenkins are probably gone in a year or possibly sooner.
Yeah  
Joey in VA : 3/13/2018 8:21 pm : link
Who wants to root for a team with 4 SB wins, let's go root for the Browns or Jets or someone cool like that.
Herzlich and Stewart  
Glover : 3/13/2018 8:24 pm : link
are definitely NOT the kind of signings you need to see before the start of the league year. Why was it necessary to get those guys done? Where are they going?

LOL. Jenkins is getting cut now?
NYBEN I agree "Sexy moves"  
Dave on the UWS : 3/13/2018 8:56 pm : link
are where it's at. Sign 5 new OL for 14 mil each. Then you can have a fantastic line for 60 million. You can cut 3/4 of the roster and get some semi pro guys to fill out the roster. But hey, you will have fixed the OL.
Nothing like panic on this board. I want my GM to have a well thought out plan for balanced roster building. Throwing money at EVERY name FA is no way to solve this mess. ( Norwell was an exception he was young and DG new him well).
How about waiting  
Gregorio : 3/13/2018 9:07 pm : link
half a season, to begin to see the effectiveness of any moves before making any judgments?

Northwest NJ : 3/13/2018 10:08 pm : link
You have to remember we spent a lot of money two years ago and then last year we ponied up big money for JPP. It is hard to be a big spender every year. I really want Offensive Line help and maybe we will get a few bargains rather than overpay the top ranked people.
FA  
Dragon : 3/14/2018 7:08 am : link
Is not the way to fix this team face the facts they are not going to win this year or next use the draft. If you go out and sign these FA vets who bring you one or three more wins then that's also 6-10 slots lower in the draft. Is there really that much difference between a 4 wins or 7 wins team in reality?
I gotta say  
NYBEN1963 : 3/14/2018 8:09 am : link
I'm a bit disappointed ...all these BBI veterans sharing their opinions on this thread but no one picked up on the "Big sexy moves" comment. Was hoping to see a pic of DG in the pimp suit.
great analysis half a day into the league year.
