Giants owner responding to letters he gets from fans

Now that he’s gotten the media off his back for a few weeks by saying no decision would be made on personnel until the end of the season, Giants owner John Mara has time to deal with the angry mob.

According to Mark Sanchez of the New York Post, Mara has been replying to fans who have written him letters expressing their displeasure with a 1-8 season.

One fan posted the letter he received from Mara on Twitter. It was dated November 3, which means he wrote it before they lost 51-17 to the Rams and then 31-21 to the previously winless 49ers.

“I have your letter. Nobody is more upset than I am with our performance so far,” he wrote. “I learned a long time ago that the season is a marathon, not a sprint, and things can look a whole lot different in December than they do.

“We will evaluate everything at the end of the season, with a full body of information, before we make any major decisions. In the meantime all we are focused on right now is trying to win our next game.

“Thank you for writing and for your loyal support of the Giants.”

That’s not that different than this week’s statement supporting (for the time being) coach Ben McAdoo. If he continues, the Giants might spend as much on postage as they did on free agents last offseason.

  1. Good for him. Giant’s are just stuck with a QB who’s just not very good anymore. Should go with Webb the rest of the way. And Darin Csp ain’t coming here either.

  2. I hope they get it turned around. Rooting for my own team is more fun when the Giants are looming as a menace. (And other teams too, beating easy opponents gets boring, I want to face tough ones)

  3. Mara, like most billionaires only more so, never admit they’re wrong and don’t care about fans, only sponsors, PR and fans’ money. And if you think he personally took the time to write each and every one of those generic letters, you’re a fool.

  4. Sure.

    Dear Fan,
    Thanks for your interest in the New York Giants. We hope we can count on your continued support. Please click here if you would like to receive exciting offers from the New York Giants.

    Sincerely, John Mara’s secretary pool.

    About as authentic as the obligatory player’s “I am sorry I breached the fans’ trust” PR letter after being suspended.

  5. Ha! Letters are for amateurs. I’m a Browns fan and we have full blown music videos (traditional & Christmas), fan interviews, and skits on YouTube to mock our organization’s incompetence. Thank you angrybrownsfan. If it weren’t for you, us Browns fans would never smile.

  6. Bad season for the Gmen for sure, but what I like and respect about Mara is he thinks things through and doesn’t cave to the emotional fan and fire everyone now. What would that do ? Only make matters worse.

    I am sure at the end of the season he will clean house, and we’ll get back on track.

  7. At least he did something. Mike Brown wouldn’t even bother because he’s too cheap to pay for the postage stamp.

  8. “We care what you the fans think but as long as you keep buying NY Giants tickets, jerseys, hats, shirts, socks, condoms, and air we won’t change a thing. We were deeply troubled by Josh Brown’s abuse of his wife but we supported him and stood by him until the league forced us to do something about it. I was also personally appalled by OBJyn’s disgusting peeing like a dog celebration but refused to suspend him because once again ticket sales are more important than sending a message to our young team.”

    Keep buying our junk!
    Paul Mara

  9. The Giants have not drafted well in general over the last 5-6 years.
    The GM needs to go.
    All teams fade and you have to anticipate that and begin the rebuilding in advance.

    And here come the patriots fans saying that he railroaded brady

    But he didnt. That was Goodell.

    And the one Pats fan comment on this thread actually wishes the Giants well to go back to being a dangerous opponent. I think the difference here is who views sports as athletic competition the excitement of which is to be celebrated, respected, and enjoyed….and who views it as some personal thing to seethe about all day.

  11. Dear Giants fan,

    Sorry about the crappy team. Please accept this coupon for 2% off your next beer purchase at Met Life Stadium. Thank you for your continued support.

  12. I’m not a Giants fan but I’ll say this about their organization. I had a friend who died from cancer at 35, very tragic. They were a lifelong Giants fan. They sent her a nice care package and after she passed, sent flowers to her funeral.
    The Giants are a class organization that showed me they care about their fans.

  13. If my favorite team is terrible and a coaching change is imminent, I’d rather see the coach fired after the season, rather than during the season. Eliminate the chance of some mediocre interim coach getting the full-time job just because of the familiarity and increased motivation from the players.

    From the only person to even bring him up, the dollfan whose 2 favorite seasons were the years the Giants beat New England in the SB. No Pats fan is as obsessed with them as poor chipwibby is.
