Windows came up a lot with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones last offseason and now another NFC East owner is talking about them.
Giants owner John Mara said that he hasn’t “quite gotten over” the team’s failure to make the playoffs a year after winning the Super Bowl, but he doesn’t believe that this year’s disappointing result means there need to be drastic changes to the roster. Mara thinks that the team has a chance to win the title every year that they have Eli Manning at quarterback.
“He’s (32) years old; he’s got a lot of years left,” Mara said, via the Newark Star-Ledger. “I think our window is still pretty wide. I think as long as he’s under center, we have a chance to win.”
It’s the most important spot to fill on an NFL roster and the Giants have it filled with a guy who has won two championships already. And on an “any given Sunday” basis, the Giants have proven themselves capable of beating just about anyone. The goal for 2013 should be to replace the roller coaster rides to 9-7 with consistent efforts that enable them to sew up their playoff future well before the final weekend of the season.
