Why does DG have to go and now?

Thats Gold, Jerry : 12/5/2021 8:15 pm
I know this is rather obvious but it has to be said. At his first press conference, Gettleman said the OL was number one priority and four years later he has failed miserably.

By extension, I am mad about all these injured puff receivers but the reality is we will not get better until the OL gets fixed. Our D is solid and needs continued depth and a pass rusher.

But the OL has to be a focus in the draft and free agency. Thomas is the only active guy I would keep. Gates and Lemieux are good depth. I question if they are starters. Until the OL gets better, we are done. Seems simple but the morons covering the Giants can’t get that right.

We are paying a big price for not drafting Quentin Nelson. To paraphrase Gettleman, he is much closer to a gold jacket than 26 is.

still can't believe he said "darling" and he isn't even from the south smh
I feel like he should have to face the media before he leaves.

I'm sure he'll sneak out quietly like a fart in the wind but he should have to sit in front of the media and answer for every stupid FA signing, every poor draft pick, every smug and dismissive response. Because he hasn't just been historically poor at his job, he's been a condescending prick while doing it.

There’s nothing I enjoy more then smug assholes getting their comeuppance. Too bad this one has to come at our expense as fans. God, what an arrogant jerk this prick turned out to be. All while further destroying our once proud franchise.

Makes my blood boil.
It doesnt matter if he leaves now or in 5 weeks

Let it play out. Unless you're worried we win out!
At this point, DG + JJ should go together anyways.

If we're betting Abrams vs The Field a gambling man would bet Abrams. It's what they do.

Dave's Jewish, Hanukkah is over...and so should be his tenure as GM.

Announce your retirement to be effective at season's end so any interested candidates can make their interest known ASAP.
They didn't give Reese or McAdoo that courtesy!

He was let go before the season ended and Getts was hired. If I remember correctly. He released a couple non relevant players at the time.

Amazing how often those two qualities go together, isn't it? But it makes sense... Incompetent people who are arrogant and condescending can never reflect on themselves honestly enough to even try to become competent.

I think he converted actually.

HIS ASS NOW!! I makes no sense to keep him. The faster we get on the hunt and the earlier potential gm know the giants have a vacancy the better.
They'll let him 'retire'  
fkap : 12/6/2021 9:34 am : link
I'm sure everyone knows his contract isn't getting renewed, and back channel conversations about replacement are going on.

The only point in firing him is to appease the masses. He's a dead man walking.
