The New York Giants’ biggest problem lies within ownership

Earlier in December, New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch expressed his displeasure with the current state of the team and the process of which GM Dave Gettleman was activating, stating:

“It’s a multi-step process,” Tisch told SNY in early December. “After the season, John Mara and I are going to sit down and have a number of conversations. We’re going to look at every situation, every opportunity, every option and we’re really going to approach it from 35,000 feet and see really what needs improvement, what we need to do, where we think there are other options.

“The direction we take the team hopefully in 2020 will result in a much better season next year.”

While Tisch has been the more vocal owner between himself and John Mara, he hasn’t said anything that the masses aren’t already clamoring about. Big Blue needs to make some changes, and it starts with ownership. Tisch’s concern was well-received from the fan-base, as it seemed the backseat owner was trying to implement more of a progressive strategy. However, reports are now indicating that he will once again lie in the shadows while Mara drives the team into the ground.

Ralph Vacchiano of SNY has heard from sources that Tisch was just “venting.”



That’s what some around the NFL seem to believe. In fact, multiple NFL sources have told SNY that they believe Steve Tisch, the co-owner of the Giants, is “very frustrated” with the current direction of his organization and will push for sweeping changes when he meets with co-owner John Mara after the season finale on Sunday. However, others believe Tisch has just been “venting” privately in the wake of a third straight miserable season and will defer to Mara in the end.

The New York Giants need to make several big decisions:

The reality is simple for the Giants — they need to take a significant step forward with the current trends of the NFL, investing more in pass-rushers and progressive coaching. The old-school mentality of Gettleman doesn’t seem to be working at an accelerated rate anymore, which has set the team back to a degree. Also, head coach Pat Shurmur doesn’t have the capacity to manage the entire team in-game and help rookie passer Daniel Jones develop.

Jones has looked solid in his first campaign in the NFL, but Shurmur doesn’t seem to be developing at the same pace, which justifies “sweeping changes.”
