Coming off an 11-5 season and with an offense that, on paper, looks much-improved, there are high expectations for the 2017 New York Giants. GM Jerry Reese admitted Thursday to being “excited” about the possibilities, but reminded that success one year doesn’t guarantee success the next.
“When the new season starts, you never know what you’re going to get. There have been seasons when everybody is like ‘Wow, the Giants. They really don’t have that much’ and you know, we play pretty well. Then there have been seasons when people say, ‘Giants. They look pretty good’ and we don’t play as well,” Reese said. “So, every season is a new season. I like the squad. I’m excited about the squad. The coaches are excited. The players are excited. But, we have work to do and it started today.”
“Last year means nothing.”
Here is more from Reese in the “just because we were good last season doesn’t mean we will be good this season” vein:
“We did win 11 games last year. We’re hoping to build off that, but it’s a whole new season,” Reese said. “You’ve got to win one game at a time, one practice at a time, one day at a time, one game at a time. It has its own set of circumstances this season. Last year means nothing. The last 10 years mean nothing. This is a new year. New challenges and we’re excited about it.”
