Dave Gettleman’s time with the Giants could soon be over
With the New York Giants sitting at 5-10 heading into week 17 with a chance to win the NFC East, no one knows whether or not owner John Mara and Steve Tisch will move on from general manager Dave Gettleman after this season.
Even though the Giants can still win their division and make the playoffs, it’s not because of how great they’ve been, it’s because the NFC East is so pathetic.
Jordan Raanan of ESPN wrote on Thursday that there is a growing belief that the Giants could end up firing Gettleman.
Though all of this has unfolded in a season played during the coronavirus pandemic, which altered offseason programs, training camps, fans in the stands and more, there seems to be a growing belief in league circles that a GM change could be on the horizon.
Giants’ head coach Joe Judge stated on Thursday that they’ve had one vision with Gettleman as general manager.
“I’d say the entire building since I’ve been here has had one vision going forward,” Judge told reporters. “I’m very pleased how we came out of last spring in free agency and the draft. I think all of those guys we’ve brought in have contributed to this team, have developed in time, and helped lay a foundation for this team.
“We have to keep drafting well, we have to keep signing free agents that will build within our not only our culture but our scheme and versatility. But, I’d say the cooperation in both aspects, the building has been working together as one and that’s a very positive thing.”
Unfortunately for Gettleman, the NFL is a very inpatient league. Even though it looks like he had a pretty good 2020 draft, this Giants’ team is still not where they need to be due to the fact that they lack difference makers at key positions.
