The Giants can't afford to wait too long to hire a GM

Lowell : 1/12/2022 8:28 pm
The Senior Bowl is Feb 5th and the all important practices begin a few days before. Without the new GM and his staff on hand the Giants will be represented by the Maras and their scouts or what's left of them. Last year 100 players from the Senior Bowl were drafted.
No Problem

We'll just draft the Senior Bowl MVP quarterback!

Apparently the Bears are interviewing HC candidates before / during their interviews of GMs. Odd.

I will gladly trade them taking it slow & getting right person instead of making hasty choice.
I do agree that

not having a GM would be tough. Getting the wrong GM again will be beyond devastating. A couple weeks will not hurt them.
Plenty of time

no need to panic. This won’t take more than a week or so...
Adhering to their timeline  
George from PA : 1/12/2022 8:37 pm : link
They should have a GM by end of next week.

I sure hope....coaching discussings are included in process....getting a great HC and staff will be late
My guess Schoen has already been called to set up a second interview

unless he totally bombed which I doubt. This would show serious interest in candidate at the same time it can always be cancelled if the Giants go another direction. They know they have competition for these lead candidates.
Take all the time they need.

This is more important than even who we get with the #5 and #7 picks.

GM will not have say on coach. McCaskeys are making both selections and having dual reporting structure to them.
The Giants can't afford to make the wrong decision in haste

I don't care how long it takes. Find the man that is up for fixing this mess. If they are hired in March it doesn't matter. The right guy needs to be hired. We're not winning a super bowl next year. We're not making the playoffs next year. Find the guy that is going to build a winner no matter how long it takes.

The DG hire was rushed

The Judge hire was rushed

Mara admitted to that today

So you want them to rush again?
OTOH, the guy we hire will

almost certainly be at the Senior Bowl, etc. representing his current team, and will bring what he learns along with him to the Giants
Evals are in process

And no wholesale scouting department swap outs will happen until after the draft.

They will use work done by current staff and blend what they’ve been doing in their own building.

They don’t start from scratch at the senior bowl.
I remember DG saying that we need to get

the right QB so we don't end up in "QB hell" and most would agree that we are there now but wouldn't we also be in "GM hell" if we get the wrong GM? I just hope the new GM is able to make whatever decision he deems in the best interest of the Giants organization and be able to do it unfettered.
No need to rush  
Torn Tendon : 1/13/2022 7:28 am : link
anyone worth hiring will be attending those practices anyway.
He’ll be in place well before that

Not having a GM at the Senior Bowl is the least of my concerns.  
Ivan15 : 1/13/2022 8:43 am : link
That’s why there is a scouting department. And a new GM is going to have to rely on that department anyway because he won’t be replacing anyone immediately.
The candidates will be at the Bowl anyway

They are all employed by NFL teams. And they can take their notes with them if they join the Giants.

And remember, Chris Mara will still be there! Well unless there is a horse race.
