...been thinking about this quite a lot given the composition of the current Giants team.
Clearly, the team needed to be re-built almost from scratch, and IMO Gettleman has done about as good a job as one could reasonably expect in two seasons given the circumstances.
But the biggest tasks for ANY General Manager in Gettleman's position is to put into place several players that will grow and mature together into a winning football team.
I think Gettleman has put together a credible offensive line. But it is not a young one (Solder; Remmers; Zeitler). He will now have to devote serious Draft and Free Agent resources to re-making his Linebacking unit; his Edge/Pass Rush unit; and probably his Safeties.
And that's the seesaw dilemma. Once Gettleman has accomplished that, he could very well have an O-line that has aged out and needs several players replaced.
We're gonna just have to cross our fingers that he will continue to Draft well and that once he is out of Cap Hell he can fill a few key holes with plus players from other teams.
But right now, the Giants roster seems to me to be in seesaw mode.
