The Giants have been a losing organization since 2013  
Matt in SGS : 9/19/2019 8:54 am : link
Gettleman was brought here to do exactly what he's done, which is blow up the roster and start over. Anyone who is from the previous losing group who has a problem leaving, my response is "you didn't do enough to win and stay". I don't care that they hate Gettleman and felt lied to.

Now, I think all the pressure is on Gettleman and Shurmur in 2020. I think Mara will give them the grace period that it wasn't a one year turnaround. If the Giants continue to struggle in 2020 and don't make the playoffs, with 3 Gettleman drafts, a ton of cap space and Daniel Jones with game experience under his belt, then the Giants need to show him and Shurmur the door.

So far he's much better known as the Talent Extractor

You should care about how the leader of an organization treats his people. Before too long, there won't be any good ones left to mistreat. Even a shitty employee needs to be given the same respect as everyone else, if only to show the rest of the rank and file that you're not petty.

Itís Mara apologizing to Collins for how his exit was handled (per Collins). But, allowing Collins to be an unrestricted FA seems like a good deal for Collins & made a ton of money for it.

I think Collins ego took a hit. Iím still pissed he dropped the INT against NE in 2015. Would have gotten us to 6-4 and maybe we win the division.
Collins has one good

Season, called one of his teammates a cancer and refused to switch to LB even though he canít cover anyone. Heís definitely not worth 84 mil. Iím tired of hearing about him. If the giants wouldíve signed him Gettleman would be get killed by the same beat writers for giving him a terrible contract

and yes the giants suck right now, but he has rebuilt the offensive line, hopefully drafted a future qb, hall of fame rb, his draft classes albeit very early are contributing..

This.

Collins really, REALLY needs to let it go.
I'm sure that Gettleman, like the rest of us, is flawed.  
Bill L : 9/19/2019 9:00 am : link
But he really only has one job and that's to put together the best possible team for his employers. And, I think that the jury is still out on that. I'm sure it's a subject of potential great debate, but personally, I think he has gotten the arrow pointing upwards, whereas his predecessor approached the team with a shovel in his hands on loam on his mind.

I could care less of his flippant or even disingenuous with the media. In fact, good for him! Yay!. Him mocking teams for "analytics' is less than insubstantial and the complaint is more in the minds of the hurt ones who take themselves far too seriously than grounded in reality. Basically, what he says in public means less than zero.

I do think he likely needs to be more communicative with his subordinates though, especially as he is moving them out (tasking some of these commenters in the article at their word). But, moving them out is well within his purview and in pretty much every case I can think of, more than justifiable.

Wrt Collins specifically, he didn't fit what they want at the price Collins wanted. As far as "lumping him in with the distractions" I didn't see DG specifically single Collins out in this vein. Not sure why he has to specifically say "except for Landon" in his every sentence either. On the subject itself, I actually would think that running to the papers to disparage a teammate (even if the teammate was an abominable teammate) is a distraction for the GM to deal with .

So far he's much better known as the Talent Extractor

You should care about how the leader of an organization treats his people. Before too long, there won't be any good ones left to mistreat. Even a shitty employee needs to be given the same respect as everyone else, if only to show the rest of the rank and file that you're not petty.

I see a leader sending a message to the team that no one person is above the team. I see one that won't overlook shit behavior because of talent. There was a cancer on this team and he's cutting it out. As for how the team is playing now, recovery takes time.

Would Bill Belichick have tolerated any of this? I guarantee that Antonio Brown will either straighten up and fly right or Bill will cut him loose.

Smith and Norman were never much after they were released. Will that trend continue with Collins? It looks like it already started when he was still here.

What this boils down to was Landon Collins needed someone to give him a big hug and he didn't get that. The NFL is a business. You are a grown man, Landon. Try acting like one.

You know what else Bill Belichick wouldn't do?

He wouldn't give up a 4th to overpaid an at best mediocre Alec Ogletree. He wouldn't give Solder the highest paying contract for an LT.

BBI needs to stop the WWBD - because Belichick is in his own league. He's earned the right to be different, he's got the results to prove it.

Gettleman doesn't have to be best buds with these guys - but being straight up and telling someone they're out isn't too much to ask either.

Yes he was injured. You still couldn't franchise him and get at least a 5th or 6th back? Dumb.


I don't mind backslapping Gettleman for some of his draft picks, even though he's been picking pretty high. But some of his free agent moves have been really head scratching.

Wow - he's NUMBER NINE in tackles after two games.

Guess where his defense ranks? 30th. They can't stop anyone. Neither could the Giants for most of the time he was here. We had a good defense one of the four years he played here - but sure, he's certainly the missing link.

Collins may talk too much, but this does not reflect well on Gettleman. Stuff like this:

"If you canít pay me, you canít keep me, or Iím not what youíre looking for with your future, all right. Just let me know. Itís all good. I havenít talked to this man not one time. The handling of it was horrible.Ē

And:

Once he came out and started talking about how we were problems, and they got rid of the problems, Iím trying to figure out: When have I ever been a problem?Ē Collins said. ďDonít group me in something that I wasnít the cause of."

Is just a bad look. All in all it paints a picture as Gettleman as a real cowardly douchebag.

Now I can handle a cowardly douchebag as a GM, if he delivers wins, but if he can't even do that...


ok, so which is true? If Collins is calling DG a liar, he must have spoken with him. If he has never spoken to him, how can he know if he has lied. Either way, Collins isn't being truthful here. Ironic based on his accusation.

Listen, he needs to move on, but Collins was one of the leaders on the team and if DG couldn't reach out to him at all during the off-season, even if it was to say "we appreciate everything you did here, but you do not fit into our future plans", that just isn't right.


Yes. DG has shown time and time again to be completely unprofessional. He is a terrible representative of the Giants and would not last a day in a real job in the real world.

I do think that we all recognize that Landon is very skilled and an excellent tackler. That ranking doesn't surprise me at all. The concern here was that he was poor in coverage and that our scheme needed something that...wasn't that. How have his cover skills been in the first 2 games? That doesn't show up in the tackle stats.

Eric on Li : 9/19/2019 9:43 am : link
he's angry that Gettleman lied to him and also angry that he didn't say anything to him. Both can't be true so which is it?

Also Gettleman never called him a problem to my recollection - that's people just stirring the pot. He's been pretty respectful of all the guys that have left individually, though he has made illusions to changing the culture (which I suspect is much more of a reflection of the Eli Apple/Snacks/Flowers group than LC).

Loved Collins as a Giant, wish we could have brought him back, but not at that contract (which he should be thanking DG for letting him get w/o franchise tag drama). I'll take the 3rd and cap room. If you go back 12-18 months I probably posted that I wanted him back or tagged so I guess that makes me a liar in his book too.

We're talking Resume Dave here. The guy who is so insecure he has to remind everyone who will listen about all of his Canton achievements. The same guy who consistently contradicts himself publicly and looks and sounds like a complete incompetent fool doing it.

So this type of behavior - lack of professionalism - dealing with players is just par for the course. Gettleman is a bonafide jackass.

Regardless, what's done is done. Hopefully, he hasn't created enough stench around the organization that give free agents pause to come here.

Like we all know, Gettleman will be judged by two moves when the dust settles - the selection of Barkley and the selection of Jones.

gidiefor : Mod : 9/19/2019 10:01 am : link
needs to tip his hand when it comes to player contracts, trades, movement on and off the team

he has to do what's best for the Giants

many of you used to excoriate Reese for tipping his hand -- and yet there were players unhappy with him too -- like Shockey, like Strahan, like Osi --

this contract stuff is about jockeying for position -- you can't be showing your hand all the time

I think Collins is sour grapes because he didn't get what he wanted. By the way -- OBJ was sour grapes and he did get what he wanted. It all seems to point to the "bad culture" that was manifest here. A lot of young spoiled millionaire brats that find ways to feel disrespected because their ego didn't get stroked as part of a business decision. Sheesh!

There's a real lack of thick skin in all this, in my humble opinion, jstfu and grow a set

Collins is not worth the contract he got from the skins, good to not pay him that.
Collins led the giants defense to the only relevant Giants season in 6 years- people like to pretend 2016 didnt happen because the 2 best players were collins and obj and the coach everyone hates was actually great in key situations.

Gettleman is not a great communicator and its obvious a lot of ex players dont enjoy him- which as a fan who cares but it doesnt mean they are wrong on his personality.

gettleman has made some good decisions... and gettleman has made some bad decisions... jury is still out and dependent on Jones.


Only the Redkins can give a guy 80 million dollars

and he's still pissed off

And I'll be honest,for a guy who wanted to remain a Giant this bad.Where we constantly gotta hear these type of comments.It sure didn't take long for him to sign with the team in which his childhood idol played for.That deal was done rather quickly.

You know what else Bill Belichick wouldn't do?

He wouldn't give up a 4th to overpaid an at best mediocre Alec Ogletree. He wouldn't give Solder the highest paying contract for an LT.

BBI needs to stop the WWBD - because Belichick is in his own league. He's earned the right to be different, he's got the results to prove it.

Gettleman doesn't have to be best buds with these guys - but being straight up and telling someone they're out isn't too much to ask either.


No. BBI, the Giants, and every other team in the league NEEDS to say WWBD because "Belichick is in his own league". What's the argument here, we shouldn't try to do what works? He's gotten results BECAUSE he does it differently.

What I agree with you on is that he's earned the ability to get players cheaper than other teams because he wins. Therefore, he gets player's at a discount because they want to win. Bill isn't desperate for an ILB or LT. He's never desperate for any position because he's that good at what he does so he, again, doesn't have to overpay.

Giants/Gettleman didn't have much of a choice. They had an urgent need for a LT and had to quickly convert to a 3-4 without the players (LBs) to do so.

that Gettleman got exactly zero return for a 27-year-old pro bowl safety in the midst of an obvious rebuilding project.


Zero return except for the a 3rd round draft choice and $84m in cap space.
Pay no attention to the noise

1. Collins has always talked too much
2. He does one thing very well
3. Does anyone here think DG should have shelled out 84mil for a one dimensional player.
4. Collins should thank the DG for not franchising him
5. Collins is showing you why DG didnít want to franchise him
6. Why canít the young man move on. The Giants did (easily)
Many good posts in here
