Marc Ross

Just saw him of NFL Network. Picked the Eagles over the Cowboys for the NFC East. I understand every man should have the opportunity to earn a living and I encourage and support people who come back from whatever circumstances.

Is anyone offended as I am for someone so smug to be on the NFL Network giving a opinion? I get it; a Ivy League guy, but come on now. What is the attraction? I would think this guy would have some dignity and just go away after destroying the Giants.

If you looked "smug" up in a dictionary, his picture would be there.

That came across in that documentary on the Giants' scouting department.
Say what you want about Gettleman,  
j_rud : 3/14/2019 9:24 pm : link
he made dumping that clown his first order of business.
That rat bastard  
SirLoinOfBeef : 3/14/2019 9:24 pm : link
along with the other rat bastard Reese should never get one second of air time.

Pathetic.
It's pretty clear at this point ...  
FStubbs : 3/14/2019 9:25 pm : link
... that Reese's single, biggest mistake was this guy.

That documentaty sure did shine a bright light on one of the major problems with this organization.

It kind of bothers me these guys who are terrible at the job they they had. Why the networks find value is a mystery to me. Honestly, and I am not a "Ivy League graduate" but this guy sounds like a Moron.
Gettleman was hired  
McNally's_Nuts : 3/14/2019 9:29 pm : link
And I think 10 hours later Marc Ross was gone.

He was the very definition of Peter Gibbons

arcarsenal : 3/14/2019 9:30 pm : link
Getting him away from this franchise was a huge win. I can't find a single account of anything that suggests he was good at the job he had here. In fact, it seems to me that he should be the one shouldering a fuckton of the blame for all of those virtually empty drafts we came away with.

Now he's being a smug prick and taking shots at the org from afar.

Guy sucks. Go away.
That is why I thought it awesome Carl banks went

Great job, Carl.

I'm not a violent man, unless provoked... But I want to choke that smug fucker out. At least Reese is on the DL.
Thanks

He would also fall under the “scumbag” territory.

He’ll say how the Giants needed a new QB who could run a modern style of offense.

They knew damn well who they had at QB and that he wasn’t going anywhere soon. They built a team to his weaknesses instead of around his strengths.

It’s really amazing what they did. Couldn’t have screwed it up worse.
I don’t understand  
WillVAB : 3/14/2019 9:37 pm : link
How he gets this type of job. He was an abject failure with the Giants. The drafts he was a huge part of are the reason this team has sucked the last 7 years. Does he even have a positive experience on his resume besides job titles?

Reese was terrible as well but at least he has some accomplishments to hang his hat on.

Marc Ross doesn’t even measure up to Matt Millen and he was a terrible GM.
I’ve been watching the last 15 minutes.  
bradshaw44 : 3/14/2019 9:39 pm : link
I hate his face. Such a know it all little prick.

I guess part of what I said was that he was terrible at his job. Why have him spouting his opinions on the Network? So many former players and coaches that would surely get on the Network for a few minutes.

Anyone who looked at his drafts in Buffalo

Maybe someone @nflnetwork should ask Ross why when all other HARD WORKING personnel guys were on the road, he was strolling the NYG sidelines like he owned the team..

My Kool Aid is blue, and I support everyone in the building.. but I'm not gonna let this guy Piss on #10 when it was his JOB to build a competent roster to support him.. so hell yeah I own it! That fraud can kick rocks.. but then again he'd probably miss the rock


This was great. Love the Banks.

I agree. He has no business getting any air time.

The guy is delusional. Anyone with a modicum of self awareness wouldn’t have even bothered interviewing for the Giants GM job given his track record there.

Ross and Reese both smug assclowns
Reese was a little cocky  
bceagle05 : 3/14/2019 10:01 pm : link
but some of that may have just been poor media relations - he seems like a high character guy overall. Ross is an insufferable douche - how'd that "basketball on grass" work out?
its remarkable  
japanhead : 3/14/2019 10:04 pm : link
the giants let the guy hang around for 10 years when the drafts were by and large getting worse. the wheels only completely came off after gettleman left for carolina in 2013. it's a shame how it all played out. i guess 2 SBs in 5 years made mara overconfident in these guys. probably gettleman was the one holding it together in spite of these clowns.
Come on now  
SHO'NUFF : 3/14/2019 10:04 pm : link
Everybody has that one guy, or girl, at work right now who you can't figure out how the fuck they're in a leadership role... hell, you might be that person.
So he picked Philly over Dallas.  
The_Boss : 3/14/2019 10:05 pm : link
Big deal. I’m sure every single preseason prediction next August is going to have either team winning the division. I can bet my mortgage that nobody, not one person paid to do it for a living, is picking us.

Ross the person? The guy is a cock. If his face infuriates you so much, maybe change the channel?

I think you're giving Ross too much credit. I think that he, and JR were so bad at their job, that they didn't realize they were drafting away from the QB's strength. Now he is in damage control, and it's easier (and his only choice) to try and throw Eli under the bus, than admit he's a fucking clown.
giants have a long history with maras keeping people in FO way longer  
plato : 3/14/2019 10:29 pm : link
than they deserved, if they ever belonged to begin with. Those who were fans through the 18 years of football hell, will remember robustelli as gm. a great player, greater only as incompetent management. he set the giants back years. the scouting department was awful and that was worse than some of the awful coaching decisions.

Reese/Ross will have accomplished the same disaster. hopefully DG can straighten out scouting and decision making and make our current stay in the wilderness less than 18 years. So far in my “ Patriot league opinion”, DG is doing very good work.
How does a loser like this get  
TMS : 3/14/2019 10:39 pm : link
air time. Total BS artist, con man who made Reese worse than he already was. Both Loved to be on the road in their zoot suits acting like big shits, visiting colleges.and ruining, our team acting like they knew FB talent. Blame Accorsi for Reese, and Reese for the con man Ross. Cost us 5/6 years with their arrogance, that they used to cover up their incompetence. TC knew but Mara did not have the balls to tun them out of the building 5/6 years earlier. Reese is done but this other clown is trying to slither back in again. good for Banks calling him out. But he will not go easily. Just keep him the far away from the Giants, and sure DG will. He knows what he is dealing with and fired him right away.
I liked Dave Gettleman

You're curious as to why they hired him?

Not only did you sit there and listen to him, you ran to a message board to discuss what he wrote.

You're ESPN's target audience.

well said.

Saw that segment too...  
Southern Man : 3/15/2019 9:32 am : link
What got me was how Ross praised the Steeler organization for getting rid of a distraction in Antonio Brown so that the team can concentrate on winning football. I didn't get his take on the OBJ trade, but I'm sure it wasn't nearly as generous.

It was actually NFL Network. I was just surprised that they would have had a failed evaluate of talent on the network.
