I’m pleased to see the Giants management team initiating a good solid housecleaning. Remember that as much as we might feel bad about players getting cut, it’s not likely that any of them will have a hard time paying for their next meal.
The play of the team, as a whole, was most uninspired last season. If the Giants are going to get better, they need to find healthier players with better attitudes. I think that’s the path Jerry Reese & Company are on.
I know every year at this time many of us fans are accused of being too “doom and gloom,” but I think when you really look hard at this team you’ll see a lot of holes that need to be filled. The biggest areas of concern are the offensive line, defensive line, and linebackers. It’s hard to imagine how we’re going to come up with enough sold players to fill the holes there. In addition, we need at least one quality CB to take over for a fading Corey Webster.
I’m pleased to see that Reese isn’t satisfied with a team that goes 9-7, and I hope he continues to make aggressive moves to re-tool the team. – John K.
John, I’m not as sure linebacker is as big of a need – I think if they re-sign at least one of their UFAs, they might e okay there, though with that said, I do expect them to add some help. I’d put cornerback at a higher need than anything, followed by offensive tackle, the two spots that sorely lack proven depth.
And yes, when you have a 9-7 team, you cannot be satisfied – you need to blow some stuff up, which they have, to get better.
