The week following the end of the 2015 season was a rough one for the New York Giants. They had to part ways with a long-time, beloved, and very well respected head coach after their third consecutive losing season. And while the parting was about as amicable as could be expected, general manager Jerry Reese appeared defensive when challenged on his personnel and draft decisions.

Following new head coach Ben McAdoo's introductory press conference, Reese was much more definitive in taking the blame for personnel failures.

After repeatedly taking responsibility for the talent the coach has to work with, Reese talked about getting down to the business of moving forward.

In his part of the press conference, McAdoo talked about working with Reese.
