Good morning, New York Giants fans!
That means no consults from Ernie Accorsi, no matter how much Mara and co-owner Steve Tisch respect his opinion. Accorsi, the Giants’ general manager from 1998 to 2006, has been out of the league for 16 years. His advice helped steer them into this latest mistake with Gettleman.
This approach of hiring from within — the past two GM hires produced Jerry Reese (33-47 over his final five seasons) and Gettleman, who both were Giants scouts — has led them to this point of five straight double-digit loss seasons, with one playoff appearance and zero playoff wins in the past decade.

“I’d be blessed to be back with the New York Giants, 100 percent,” he said. “But whatever happens, happens. There are a lot that needs to be figured out and a lot of conversations that need to be had. I know this season was tough and we didn’t play to our expectations, but I think there are things we can look at and know we can fix. It sucks our season is over, but I do feel we’re heading in the right direction.”
Jones said he still needs “weeks” to heal but will “absolutely” be ready for training camp.
