Wilson - Rooney Rule compliance?

Along with Poles.

Fine by me. Cast a wide net. Hell, even if you have zeroed in on something, no harm in talking to people, getting different POV about the organization at large.

Has Mara had a Come to Jesus moment? Crossing fingers.

Last time the Giants poached a safety from Arizona they won a Super Bowl because of it @antrelrolle26
Ugh  
NJBlueTuna : 1/10/2022 7:54 pm : link
Might as well bring in Adrian White for an interview.
That's an interesting name.  
bleedgiantsblue : 1/10/2022 7:55 pm : link
So far, I'm...impressed? Just for the simple fact we are not hearing Abrams, Pioli, etc. Watch Pioli be the next one they request to interview haha.

He's more like Judas to the fan base right now.
Wow this guy  
Breeze_94 : 1/10/2022 7:59 pm : link
played not too long ago. Quite an impressive rise through the ranks on his way to being an executive.
I just realized most on this board don’t even know…

Yes it as impressive as Joe Judge’s rise.
Benjamin Allbright says Wilson wants to work with Leftwich

.
Don't know much about the candidates personally  
Bill in TN : 1/10/2022 8:02 pm : link
so I just go by their teams' success.
Schoen - Buffalo has turned around successfully
Titans' guys - Used 88 players this year and got #1 seed
Poles - Chiefs have been one of the best in recent years
All these guys seem capable. Let's get one.

Antoine Bethea was a disastrous poach 2 years ago.
I would be find with Wilson/Leftwich  
larryflower37 : 1/10/2022 8:06 pm : link
He brings a modern offense.
 
christian : 1/10/2022 8:12 pm : link
Wilson and Poles are both legitimate candidates and I won’t the surprised if both are GMs this year.
Wilson was a hell of a safety  
Chris684 : 1/10/2022 8:16 pm : link
I would think most would be happy with these candidates.

All coming from currently successful orgs. All coming from different professional backgrounds. Some former scouts, some former players. Some diversity. Hardly any ties to NYG past. There is something for everyone in this pool of candidates.

He's planning to interview people, but I'd be shocked if he's implementing enough changes to actually make the position appealing to them.

Let's see how many of these guys actually agree to interviews. That will truly tell us where we're at as a franchise
The more Non-Giants connected candidates the better  
Jay on the Island : 1/10/2022 8:27 pm : link
Hopefully this is a sign that Mara has learned from his past mistakes.

What I meant is the fact that they're going outside of their inner circle is a good sign. That didn't happen with the last "GM Search."

Yup, I know who Adrian White was as well. He became a boxer after leaving football. He tore his ACL in the 1990 pre season game vs the Oilers which gave the starting safety spot to Greg Jackson who paired with Myron Guyton. White never got a shot again to start.

He was an aggressive tackler and a hard hitter but was inconsistent.

It will be interesting, especially with the known front office situation and "committee".

Might be why they're casting a wide net.

Wilson coming in and bringing Leftwich. Players respond well to ex-player coaches and he has a great offensive mind. Build some draft capital this year and select CJ Stroud next year. Let Leftwich work him into an NFL QB and we're back in business!

We could change that by not having the first thought/post on the subject be 'Rooney Rule'.
The unfortunate thing  
River Mike : 1/11/2022 8:35 am : link
is that the Rooney Rule was a necessary requirement. Since it's a rule, it's not outlandish that someone will point out when the rule is met ... unfortunate and hopefully the issue will disappear from lack of need someday. It's a needed rule, but it comes with the downside of a perceived stigma. It would be nice if this thread were the last time it's mentioned in this search.
