Does anything here have to do with producing good football?

Chris and Tim stay because they're family.
Ronnie Barnes stays because of the deathbed.
Gettleman gets kid gloved due to cancer.

I got all this from posters here and they are likely on to something.

Meanwhile, the player evaluation is sub par.
They consistently get hurt and none of them return successfully.
And Gettleman gets 2 more free years after 2 really bad ones.

I get that John Mara is a good good man, but what about putting people in place that produce a winning franchise here....

A meritocracy if you will.

God, why would Schoen or Hortiz ever want to come here....
The whole thing is broken

Look Mara is a pencil-necked geek. What does that guy know about football, really?? He is an owner, he rewards loyalty and people that can manage real football, because his physical ability in life is limited to pushing chairs around(he can't throw a chair.)
Sadly,he is basically run-in-the-mill CEO of a run-in-the-mill company not an NFL coach. He has to rely on a good GM with some talent ability. He really has no success- and the Eli/Coughlin years have a blast radius from somebody else's decisions. Like a President claiming success for decisions made 3 years previous.
Now John has to own the whole thing and it's a big fat turd he designed because he can't judge talent, leadership and is obsessed with some "Giants Way" which he cannot articulate and had nothing to do with him anyway.
Yeah,

Cant imagine why a top GM candidate would want to ever come to the giants! I dont understand why anyone would want to show the world how great they are at their craft by fixing a once proud flagship franchise and restoring it to glory. Could never imagine an ultra competitive person would want to come here and become a fucking legend, you whiny pussy.
I'll never understand why there are fans like you.

Definitely something attractive about it. But I want a guy who is a top candidate that has his pick of the litter where to go. And why would such a candidate pick here with the deck stacked as it is?

It doesnt really work like that. They cant just pick any old team, theres only so many openings, and the next time they are up for consideration their stock could totally tank out by then. Gotta take advantage of limited opportunities. And it could be much worse. Did you see the bears front office presser yesterday? Now THATS a team that should be avoided.
Whoever here said it’s a 1 in 32 jobs

was spot on. The lure of $ and NY can cloud the logic that is right before one’s eyes…

If Chris Mara is that good of College Player evaluations, why has this team missed on so many players in the later rounds…for at least 6 years?

Food for thought…

Hell. If he is that good just make him the d@mn GM!
