I've seen your posts for the last several years and Gettleman has nothing on you in the insufferable department. How one can be so fucking negative is a mystery.

I particularly liked this post though:

Nothing new here...

Gettleman doing his best to be coy and clever - in his mind.

There was nothing interesting about his draft approach. It’s the traditional BPA model. Which is really antiquated because it doesn’t factor in the cost of those first contacts of players who bring unique skills to the table - like QB skills, pass rushing skills, cover skills, and pass blocking skills.

It’s amazing how the Lauletta driving situation sticks in the craw of Jints Central.

I really like Gettleman's approach.

Give coaching staff the players he needs and build NYG for sustained success

Collaborative approach with his evaluations, coaching staff evaluations and pro personnel evaluations

Let the emotion of the season pass and then formulate the plan going forward. Be willing to make whatever hard decisions need to be made in the best interest of franchise. Don't be afraid of making mistakes and admit when things didn't work out and make changes. Keep continually improving.

He isn't going to reach for a QB. Just keep taking the best player available.



With respect, I'm not sure how different this is than most GMs. The giants have always been collaborative with their approach to personnel despite what the complaint department on here would like people to think.
This is why he'll probably fail - No QB  
giantstock : 1/3/2019 8:21 am : link
Unless he finds one in Free Agency. SO any team that has for example traded up - they did so based on "need."

He's going t have to get awfully lucks with that attitude because often in 1st 10-12 picks the QB gets selected ahead of value.

I;m fearful that DG is a stubborn/mule-headed and doesn't give a shit about analytics or most important position on the field. Hope I'm wrong.

I do like his ideas of the trenches -- but but but but
sometimes you MUST stretch to get that "elite" QB and he just might be too stubborn to do it unless it is extremely obvious (ie he gets the number1 pick.).

He pulled teh same shit on me. I know it's been on more than one occassion but I can' recall other than teh last one.

I suggested that GMen need to try to get a QB as soon as possible because i dont want to waste Barkley's prime and I spoke of getting a QB because the clock is ticking on Barkley. SO I suggested getting a qb ready by 2020 etc and he and other gave a sarcastic reply by implying that I think Barkley only has a THREE YEAR WINDOW.

He made it clear on his 1st reply that he didn't appreciate all the complaints about Eli o I guess he's going to do anything if someone were to complain about ELi to misrepresent what was said.

It's okay to disagree but he and dep - it seems if they dont like what you're saying they'll misrepresent what you say.
I didn't..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 1/3/2019 8:39 am : link
misrepresent shit.

The 3 year window regarding Barkley was a joke. I never said you gave him a 3-year window - it is the concept that the clock is ticking and we are wasting his prime years - a point that's been brought up ad nauseum since we drafted him, like we are letting the sands of time slip away and barkley will be a shell of himself when we get a QB.

As for MS - the fucking guy can't even tell that I was addressing two SEPARATE points above. One - that almost his entire body of work is negative and is usually a checklist of observations on what we are doing wrong - or some summation of how we need to change management.

The other point was a post by a completely different poster that I lumped together in the post calling out MS.

Next time, I guess I'll just create multiple posts for those with reading comprehension issues.

Take a look at the QB depth anticipated for 2020. There will be a number of quality QBs in the 2020 draft and the Giants should be able to position their self for one of them. If (as you predict) they finish 8-8, the cost shouldn't be too high to move up (unless they fall in love with one guy (e.g., Tua)).
you guys are so obtuse its pathetic

oh and BW is still a jerk with his "Jints central", like he knows better.
Anyone who thinks the draft reality is STRICTLY BPA I've got a bridge to sell you. Just look at the last draft. RB,OL, DL, OLB, backup QB, DL. ALL needed positions. So don't for a second think if they have a QB valued at 6 they won't take him to get another player with a slightly less grade. Gettleman is not stupid. He knows he needs a new QB at some point. He's just not going to force the issue.

Ahhh, wasn't Barkley thought to be the best player in the 2018 draft? (8(0)
My main frustration with Eli  
Jay in Toronto : 1/3/2019 9:11 am : link
is his poor execution on the little flares to the RB in the flat. I think this would augment the use of Barkley especially.

I hope he works on this in the offseason, but it's been chronic. Do the Giants still use a psychologist? Maybe it's a Chuck Knoblach kinda thing.

Giants have this habit of not knowing what their backups are capable of doing......

If I see another QB drafted in the later rounds , and we keep 3 qbs, wasting a roster spot, I'll freak out.....

Unfortunately, we have no true Idea of what DG, and Shurm, truly bring to the table.....that takes years to find out.....

If they fail, we will have the posters that say I told you so.....if they succeed, we will have posters that say I told you so....better hope the latter ones are right.....
If you actually have the opportunity to find out what your backups  
Ten Ton Hammer : 1/3/2019 9:33 am : link
can do, it means something catastrophic happened.

It's not something anyone should really look forward to.

and I don't think preseason snaps count as 'finding out what he's capable of'.
Flawed Conclusions  
Angus : 1/3/2019 10:39 am : link
The Giants scored a lot in garbage time that, in my mind, has allowed for the propagation of two false conclusions:

1. The Giants were in more games (lost by less than seven points) than they were really in.

2. That the Giants scored more points than the other teams in the NFC East should also be taken with a grain of salt - there were a lot of cheap, end of game points.

I think that is important, because they still need to improve the O-line some, not just get better on defense. I would have not objection to a really good safety or a game changing linebacker, but at least another high value OT is needed here as well.

Beyond flawed conclusions - Eli played better as the season went on, but he still has too many bonehead throws. Not as many as the never will quarterbacks in the league, but too many for a 15 year vet. Assuming Eli will be back, if Shurmur is to have at least some success with Eli (get into the playoffs and win some post season games), they have to find a way for him not to force the ball into triple coverage when settling for 3 points is a better choice.
DGs words reinforce why mock drafts by the ‘experts’ are just dumb.  
Spider56 : 1/3/2019 10:47 am : link
Invariably the so called experts fit their version of player ranking vs team needs ... there’s no way anyone can know individual team assessments on players. The professional draft gurus are all con artists.

still a long way to go until the draft, but I expect it to be mostly about the defense and OL, along with another day three QB. The wild card would be taking a QB in the first after trading down, or in the second. I also expect us to add a FA OL who can start.
Eli and quarterback  
INDYJIM : 1/3/2019 11:23 am : link
The only issue is , is there a better option than Manning for quarterback either in the draft or in free agency. (a substantial upgrade?) If not, they will stay with Eli until there is and work to improve both lines and the defense backfield.

The defense held opponents to 23 points or less in 8 games. League average scoring in the NFL is 25ppg.

5 of those games were losses. That's not good enough either. There's enough blame to go around on both sides of the ball.
Of course..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 1/3/2019 11:39 am : link
both sides are to blame.

But I've seen it posted numerous times about "garbage TD's and yards" as if they actually existed. One of the biggest differences between last year and this year is that we had almost 75% fewer minutes one would consider "garbage time".

It is almost like people just go with a statement and stay with it even if it isn't rooted in reality.

Angus : 1/3/2019 11:49 am : link
I went back and looked at the schedule (W/L) and I saw three or four games where they got cheap points in garbage time.

All facts aside, my gut says they still need to continue to invest in the OL even if that means that we, as fans, suffer through some early season struggles.
They definitely..

What is your take on the state of the franchise? QB? I know you talk about quick turnarounds in the NFL and it is based in fact. Happens every year. Do you think we have the correct coach/GM in place to facilitate a quick turnaround? When you look at these quick turnarounds, are there circumstances that connect them? Young QB? dominant lines? running games? that you see us having or getting? Basically, I am looking for Fat Man's state of the franchise, post season, while the games are still fresh in your mind.

I don't know if we have the right HC in place. I can't tell how good he is at in-game adjustments and the playcalling and time management aspects were shaky this year. I'm fairly confident we have the right GM in place as a guy who has shown the ability to try and upgrade weak areas and better yet - has moved on from players who didn't work out. Plus given his past, he'll make the difficult decisions on vets.

Eli isn't the QB to lead this team in the future. I wouldn't have a problem with him being here next year as we continue to fortify weak areas and then prepare for his successor, but he cannot be signed to a new contract.

I think eli is adequate enough to QB a playoff team, but he needs a strong D and an adequate OL to do that - basically most NFL QB's can thrive in those two conditions.

I think we are two OL players away from being solid, a pass rusher away and one or two safeties away (depending on Collins status) from being a playoff team.

I would liken us a bit to where the Bears were a couple of years ago. They added strength to the lines, added a pass rusher and they are right in the thick of things.

Bottom line, I think Gettleman will get us the pieces to compete - I'm not fully behind Shurmur yet, and the QB situation is something I hope we don't force, yet are able to address in 2020, if not next year.

Thank you for the answer. I cannot disagree with any of that. I think Shurmur's game plan/adjustments are OK. He got better as he learned his personnel. I was encouraged by how they used Engram at the end of the year. I am not certain if he is strong enough to deal with the very difficult themes this team will have to deal with. I think dealing with a beloved 2 SB champion& MVP, highly paid and declining QB in NY might be the most difficult coaching situation in all of sports. Throw in a WR with a ton of guaranteed money that is tough spot for a coach.

First of all, I don’t want to hear about ‘backup quarterbacks’, ‘we played backup quarterbacks’. We went 4-4 in the second half. Here’s what I would say to you, when you’re bringing in and installing a new offense, you’re looking at four to six weeks before everybody’s really on the same page, and it’s really the outlier, it’s six.


Apparently Gettleman thinks he can have it both ways. If you can't note a win over a backup QB, it seems to me like you can't write off a bunch of losses as "installing a new offense".

When the hire was announced I was on record here as liking it. But every time Gettleman opens his mouth the hire gets worse in my eyes.

One sidenote...around the time Gettleman was hired there was a poster (I don't remember who) that said Gettleman was a jerk at some event or program hosted by the Giants. Specifically, he was the only member of the Giants that insisted on being called "Mr. Gettleman". I noticed that Eli, during his call with Francesa, referred to him as "Mr. Gettleman".
The biggest concern I have is referrring to 3-13  
Sean : 1/3/2019 2:32 pm : link
Shurmur has said “we are trying to move off 3-13” at least a half dozen times.

Imagine Bill Belichick referencing the 2017 season in a press confrence this year? I just hate the mentality to bring up 3-13.
"we are trying to move off 3-13"  
Ten Ton Hammer : 1/3/2019 2:48 pm : link
when only 12 players are left from that roster and you flushed money on some vets that were apparently brought in for reasons other than their play on the field ceases to really hold water.

Go Terps : 1/3/2019 2:49 pm : link
Unthinkable. I also found the comments about culture laughable, as:

1. It's something that's difficult to disprove from the outside
2. He had to fine his star WR for throwing his QB under the bus in an interview
3. Shurmur used one of his QBs as a joke to take a shot at the media
4. The effort by some players in 2 of the last 3 games (both at home) was visibly open to question. The entire team looked disinterested in the rain against Tennessee, and the secondary's effort was pathetic against Dallas.

I can't recall a team losing the last 3 games of the season and talking so much about how they improved.

Yeah, I noticed that as well.

In general, in my own experience, the sort of people who are quick to dismiss various conditions that may have contributed to their success, while also invoking other conditions that may have contributed to their hardships... well, those people tend not to be too productive.

Ten Ton Hammer : 1/3/2019 2:53 pm : link
It sounds like that's what any reference to last year is.

Shurmur wasn't here for that, that roster has been blown up. Everyone here now is who they wanted to be here. This is on them, not 2017. And certainly not when all anyone wanted to talk about in July was winning. The conversation has become 'building' and 'culture'.

"hey don't look at me, it was a mess when we got here" is something else.
Concept of "re-tooling"  
mako J : 1/3/2019 3:15 pm : link
IMO, the new regime's philosophy was quite simple. Evaluate the roster and distinguish assets from liabilities, evaluate the strengths of the draft and FA market and align with the needs of the roster.

In year one, the roster "needed" a culture change and attention to both fronts. The addition and subtraction of players designed to address the culture has been discussed ad nauseum, but I will say this, they were able to receive some draft capitol from the purge. Both fronts received a combination of resources from FA and the draft. By year's end, it's hard to argue against the fact that improvement occurred on the offensive front and 4 young DL/ER all got valuable PT and displayed flashes of ability. In other words, 2018 was a success in adding resources to both fronts going forward.

In addition, they added an offensive playmaker that broke records and was among the league leaders in big plays. Forget what position that player plays for a moment and just focus on the actual "plays" that player made. Nearly all coaches will agree, give them someone who can make plays above the Xs and Os. Well they got one that accounted for over 2000 yards. Huge resource secured.

Now, Year 2: Same philosophy. Evaluate assets/ liabilities, evaluate available resources, align. DG confirmed what we all saw, both fronts still require additional pieces. Fortunately, early reviews suggest this draft is strongest in the trenches. What will be interesting is where DG looks for pass rush help. Historically speaking, rookies do not provide immediate pass rush help. Mack, Bosa, Chubb...these guys are outliers. Therefore either your current youngsters make a year 2/3 jump and provide it, or you're into FA for it. My guess is that DG will do the same as this year and hit up both the draft and FA.

IMO, Vernon's fate and how much they spend to secure a proven pass rusher will be your indicator on their true assessment of this roster, its ability to compete in 2019, and their potential #6 targets. Of course this also depends on what happens with the QB.

Re: QB: IMO what we've seen and heard is all posturing. Eli is the best option for 2019 success. The FO wants him to take a pay cut. Will he do it? I hope so. I think all Giants fans should want to see Eli(at a lowered rate), Barkley, OBJ, Collins, Jackrabbit, and bolstered fronts(with Eli's $) competing in 2019. It's the ultimate win win and last hurrah for an all time great.

Oh yeah....get your next QB in 2020.

"He can still make all the NFL throws, he's still got it.... that part of it." To me he recognizes Eli's inability this year to go through his progressions. He was constantly staring down his receivers... he doesn't even turn his head anymore.
Think DG would like to resturcture ELI's compensation to

get some help for the team next year. He seemed to indicate how much the team improved in the second half offensively. We need some more help in 2019 through the draft and FA. Extral cash help temporarily, from a ELI restructure could help us do that. Peyton took a pay cut to help his team, so can ELI, if he wants to win again now. Also a guarantee he retires as a Giant would help as well.

how this team is going in the right direction when they have exactly one premium player at a premium position.

You win with Qbs, WRs, Pass rush, oline, and corners. The Giants have holes at all of those positions

Exactly -- and a number of the holes are occupied by free agents. It's not like there a bunch of young ascending guys in place on cheap contracts you hope get better.

The Giants are going to end up penciling in a bunch of replacement level guys again because the economics and supply will force it.

Just look at the secondary. They have one clear cut starting level palyer under contract.

Did you think the shithouse was going to be cleaned up in one season? This was a very bad team with an attitude problem. I don't think some of you realize the extent of the train wreck the three stooges in the coaching box and the FO made of this team, and I doubt any of them will ever again be given a position of responsibility with an NFL team.

One season took from "very bad with an attitude problem" to "bad". (although not buying for a second that poppycock about bringing guys in solely for their aura of good feelings.) Maybe one more off-season will take them to mediocre and then you have something to launch.

What if they take a QB YOU don’t think is a franchise QB? If they draft Haskins, will that shut you up? Or will you continue to bitch because he’s not the guy you want? What about if they draft Jones? Do we get a reprieve from your constant whining if they draft him? Or does your incessant comply just get redirected to them taking the wrong guy before we see what he can do? If you’d rather wait until 2020 to take the QB, are you going to spend yet another entire season bitching and complaining about not having a “franchise QB” yet? Even though they did exaywhat you wanted and passed on the 2019 QBs?

Exactly. I am not expecting a QB. It sounds like many on BBI are. Not unless Gettleman is 100% sure he values that pick where we pick him. Unless something drastically changes we will not be picking a QB. Personally I want BPA.


I think Haskins is being overrated for now.

Kind of a different tune than everyone was singing last year. Last year it was all about getting Eli some help and they'll win more.

What you're saying wasn't what DG was saying before the season started -- here is what he said--

I copied the below quote from BrettNYG10 on the thread called “Remember When Everyone Said Defer to DG Because He's a GM.”

He posted the following quote that looks like came from DG:

“I've seen someone told one of the reporters that I'm in a tear-down," Gettleman said. at the time "We're not spending $62 million on Nate Solder or signing Patrick Omameh and we're not trading for Alec Ogletree if we're in a tear-down. I'm doing that. We've evaluated the roster. We've developed a plan moving forward. It's about winning now. Who wants to lose? I don't."
