As if things couldn’t get any worse for the New York Giants, two former players publicly stated on Twitter their contempt for general manager Dave Gettleman and what he’s done to a once illustrious franchise.
Just this past week, a former Giant scout and current employee went at it via Twitter, airing dirty laundry that wasn’t meant for the public eye.
Every week things seem to get even worse for upper management, and wholesale changes might be on the horizon with the pressure mounting.
Former Giants TE Scott Simonson had some pretty harsh words for the Giants’ GM, who’s likely on his way out in just a few days:
“Dave Gettleman is an atrocious GM and not a good person IMO. The fact he’s had this much time to not be good at his job, while deciding others’ fates, and indebting one of the most historically respected franchises is embarrassing, and also a strong example of karma existing.”
Big decision loom for the Giants after the season ends:
The Giants have a long off-season ahead as they try to find a general manager who can lead them into the future.
Reports have indicated that ownership is keen on retaining head coach Joe Judge, but after five consecutive blowouts and regression compared to last season, it is possible they move on from him after just two years with the team.
The Giants lost their most recent game to the Chicago Bears by 26 points, as the offense tallied -10 passing yards and four turnovers. Saquon Barkley was a lone bright spot with 102 yards on 21 carries, but his efforts were moot given the lack of discipline and passion from the team as a whole.
After the game, Judge went on a lengthy tirade regarding his team’s effort and the general state of the franchise moving forward. He indicated that things behind the scenes are positive and heading in the right direction, but everything on the field says they are far away from being a competent team capable of pushing for a postseason appearance.
Aside from Judge, moving on from Gettleman should be the first point on a long laundry list ready for the cleaners. The former Carolina Panthers GM will leave the Giants in a state of darkness, leaving four years of inapt and lackluster drafting in his wake.
At this point, an entire rebuild might be necessary given the state of the roster, and while there are a few keepers, there are too many holes the team needs to fix before fans can feel appreciative of the product they are putting on the field every given Sunday.
