New York Giants owner John Mara is tired of his team losses and hopes for a change soon.
On Tuesday, Mara gave his annual preseason state of the team talk and claimed that the team made some progress in Joe Judge's first campaign and it seems better moving into the 2021 season. All that's left is to prove it by winning games.
The New York Giants have not secured a winning campaign since 2016 when the franchise went 11-5. That was the only instance they made the postseason since claiming their Super Bowl title back in February 2012. In the last four campaigns, they've been able to win just 18 games, which included their 6-10 mark last season.
Asked if general manager Dave Gettleman will be going through a must-win campaign having only won 15 games in three seasons, Mara said to the media via big win casino: "We’re all on the hot seat, with our fans in particular. We've given them too many losing seasons. It’s time for us to start winning."
Mara and Gettleman are hopeful for the team after seeing their better performance in training camp, but the final product is all that is needed. They both believe that the New York Giants are a playoff challenger.
Mara claimed that he wanted to walk off the pitch following the last game while retaining a positive feeling regarding the team. He felt that the team is capable of securing their fifth Super Bowl title.
"I’m not issuing a playoff mandate," Mara added. "I don’t think those ever do you any good. I don’t think I need to say or do anything to motivate the people in this building any more than they’re already motivated. They all want to win."
The 66-year-old chief executive claimed that some things need to be re-assessed if the team performed lowly in the 17-game campaign once more.
The Giants' owner showed his determined belief in Judge, brimming with confidence in the coach, as the team players respond to him well while looking at the big picture.
"I’m convinced that we have the right guy at the helm," Mara added.
Mara went on to talk about other topics like the upcoming talks with running back Saquon Barkley, who is just returning from an ACL injury, and quarterback Daniel Jones.
Jones will enter his third campaign with the New York Giants this campaign, and many are hoping the quarterback will start playing like a player capable of leading the team to a potential title.
While Barkley just needs to get back on the pitch and play like his first two seasons with the team, when he won at least 1,000 yards rushing.
Talking about Barkley, Mara said le craps en ligne: "Our medical people feel very good about where he’s at right now. I like what I’ve seen from him out on the field and hopefully, that’ll be an easy decision for us as well."
Mara also confirmed that over 90% of the players have been vaccinated which includes the people working for the franchise.
