Jerry Reese gets the boot in New York as well

In this case, “plural” means the top two jobs in the Giants football operation.

Via Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network, General Manager Jerry Reese has been let go as well as coach Ben McAdoo, making it a clean sweep.

Reese has been on the job since 2007, replacing Ernie Accorsi in that post.

But recent years have seen declining home-grown talent on the roster, and last year’s splurge on defensive free agents was clearly a desperate move.

It bought them a year and a playoff berth, but the Giants are not in a good spot for the long haul, lacking a young quarterback to build around or substantial salary cap room.

  1. This a the necessary move, but a surprise that the housecleaning came early. Reese was expected to finish the season.

    The Manning debacle is no doubt John Mara’s Pisarcik-to-Csonka fumble that couldn’t allow the status quo to last any further.

  2. Its a sad comment about the state of the Gints… that we’re excited that the Coach and GM got fired.

    I’m more relieved than happy, but I know where you’re coming from.

  3. im neutral on the giants but most of my friends are giants fans and i’m finally happy for them. their prayers have been answered.

  4. Can’t wait to hear what the Fritz Pollard Alliance has to say about this…
    Now that he’s gone, this is the perfect opportunity from Troy Vincent to hire his next failed club exec and create a meaningless Sr. VP position for him. Introducing your next Chief of Buzzwords and Strategerie for the FB Ops!

  5. Bout time. The guy was awful. It was Accorsi’s draft in 2007. This guy coasted for years after two lucky SBs that he had very little of a fingerprint on.

    Good thing Tyree exists and Gronk got cheapshotted in the 2011 AFC Title game, huh?

  6. Blow it up. Go through cap hell for 2018, get two years of great draft picks, and be ready to compete in 2019. Trying to avoid the cap hell is pointless and just prolongs it.

  7. Wentz not only lost the fumble…he missed on wide open WRs and underthrew on a different. Definitely left points on the table.

  8. Will soon be working with Kim Field, Rod Graves, Jamil Northcutt, Damani Leech, Akil Coad as Troy Vincent’s cadre of failed club minority execs who get welfare type made up positions in the FB Ops dept.

  9. Do people actually care about homegrown talent in the NFL?

    I’d say I’m indifferent… but its a pretty good gauge as to how your personnel dept is doing.

  11. About time!!! Reese needed to go a few years ago. Never addressed the oline, run game, couldnt draft worth a damn. Ereck Flowers and Eli Apple look like huge 1st round busts.

    Watching the Giants unravel as I watch my dynastic franchise do its thing, means I am bitter?

    LOL!!!!

    I am enjoying every single second of their fraud franchise think their crap doesn’t stink, when it has emitted a foul odor for YEARS.

    I called every single one of Reese’s blunders along the way.

    Hard to win em all when Mara and other owners cheat constantly with Goodell.

    Gotta get those ratings up in NY to expand overseas! lmao

  14. I can remember that ‘Super bowl Countdown Clock’ that Reese put up in the Giants locker room at the start of the 2014 season. The SB was to be played in NYC.

    The 2013 team finished with a 7-9 record. Thanks to Jerry’s motivation, the 2014 Giants finished 6-10.

    Reese has been working for the Giants since 1994 and worked his way up. This wasn’t one of those hires but sure take this opportunity to bring your political agenda into this.

    That has more than anything to do with the Giant’s failure to get to big games more than a couple times.

    Not any type of personal agenda here, just stating facts. Its Troy Vincent constantly pushing his agenda. He has continually hired and promoted a bunch of his buddies to positions that do absolutely no good except boost the NFL’s numbers. This is common knowledge at 345 Park. This is why there are so many problems w/FB Ops.

    REESE WON 2 SUPERBOWLS
    ————————
    I think this might be correct. Can anyone remember what year the last one was?

  19. YES!! This is like 4 years overdue. McAdoo was obviously gone but nothing good would have happened going forward until this imbecile was gone. I’ve never been so happy about a 2-10 season because it finally got the real culprit of this mess out of the building. An early Christmas present to all of us Giants fans!

  20. Owners really have no idea about how to go about hiring a GM. They usually just go down that list of the hot names. Who puts that list together? What’s it based on? It’d be nice if all the candidates had to produce all their scouting reports over the last 10 years. That would make it much easier to hire a guy that knows how to evaluate talent. If I was an owner, I’d spend a week reading scouting reports before I called guys back for a second interview.

    REESE WON 2 SUPERBOWLS

    _________________________________________________________________
    No no no no no….Reese did not win two superbowls. Two mediocre rosters were coached to 2 Superbowls! in 2011, the Giants had a 27th ranked defense with a middle linebacker who had been substitute teaching earlier in the year. This is the team that Reese built and Tom Coughlin coached them into two SB wins. Stop spewing junk without facts. These were 9-7 and 10-6 rosters….let’s not act like he built some monster rosters. Just look at 2012 draft and that is all you have to know about Reese.

  22. Well, he did draft Odell and Landon Collins. That’s pretty good.

    Went 11-5 just last year.

    And I’m pretty sure if the ENTIRE starting receiving corp didn’t get hurt their record would be much better.

    Bad move IMO.

    Still bitter that eli has 2 of tom’s rings eh?
    Pats were garbage before belichick and likely will be after.

  24. Let me start by saying, it had to happen and I am in no way upset to see Reese go. That said, everyone who said he ignored the O-line is just plain wrong. He has used two first-round picks on the line (Pugh and Flowers) and one second-round pick (Richburg) in the last 4 drafts. You can argue the value of the picks, particularly Flowers, but it’s not like he refused to use a high-round pick on the O-line. He also signed Geoff Schwartz, who just couldn’t stay healthy, via free agency in 2014. Again, didn’t work out, but it wasn’t ignored. A lot can be pinned on him, the lack of an impact LB for one (fingers crossed on Goodson), but I don’t think you can say he didn’t try with the O-line.

  25. It’s more relief than happiness. I think the Giants need a change in direction. It appears virtually everyone in the solar system except McAdoo knew Eli was not the problem with the offense, and Geno Smith was clearly not the answer and was a poor hire. So 2 words for Mssrs. Reece and McAdoo: Buh bye.

  26. I called every single one of Reese’s blunders along the way.

  27. Too bad, I thought his approach of “let’s have a random collection of subpar running backs and refuse to commit to any single one of them even when they do well” was working really well.
