It appears there will not be a change at the top of the New York Giants. The New York Post reported Monday night that Dave Gettleman will remain as general manager.

The Post reported that ‘ownership believes the team is headed in the right direction and Gettleman is the right man to continue the building process alongside head coach Joe Judge.

The Giants just completed a 6-10 season, falling one victory short of winning the NFC East despite their losing record.

The Giants have gone 15-33 in the three seasons Gettleman has been general manager.

Despite the record in Joe Judge’s rookie season as head coach, the Post also reported that “ Co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch were not mesmerized by the down-to-the-wire playoff race, realizing the roster is not yet where it needs to be and winning six games in a season normally puts a team closer to last place than first place. There is a conviction the arrow is pointing up.”

There has also been an indication that Gettleman, who turns 70 next month, will meet with New York media on Tuesday or Wednesday. That would seem to support the idea that he is staying on.
