Giants General Manager Jerry Reese says there’s no secret to constructing a roster good enough to get to the Super Bowl. It’s just a matter of hard work from the scouting department.
Asked about the process of scouting players, Reese said, “We never stop that.”
Getting to the Super Bowl didn’t change much about the January schedule for Reese and the rest of the personnel department.
“I just got back from the Senior Bowl myself and was down there for a couple days,” Reese said. “I was also at the East-West game for a couple days. Our scouts are actually looking at film right now at the hotel. That process never stops.”
Reese was asked why there aren’t any celebrity general managers in the NFL, and he said any good G.M. is working too hard to live a celebrity lifestyle.
“It’s a working job,” Reese said. “It’s not a job where you get to work at 10 a.m., leave at 3 p.m. and go play golf. It’s a working job, for me it is anyway. You have to come to work and roll your sleeves up.”
All that hard work from Reese has paid off for the Giants.
