Aaron Rogers tells the tragic story of a decade-long New York football giants in his life. Ten years ago, this week, the Giants dismantled the 15-1 reigning champions Packers in a playoff game at Lambeau Field, where Eli Manning kicked off his second Super Bowl run with 330 yards and three rebounds.
The other day, Rodgers used it on his Pet McAfee Show forum to ridicule the giants for pulling out what looked like a college prank in the middle of an NFL game. Regarding the idea of getting on his knees later in the draw to save a playoff berth, Rogers said: “You know what drives me so crazy?
“Third and 9th places on the minus-five, let’s go to the goal line and do a QB sneak.”
Michael Jordan has never done such a thing to the Knicks.
You don’t want the best player in the league to beat you, but you don’t want the best player in the league to discriminate against you. In other words, calling Aaron Rogers a clown show organization is much more painful than Joe Judge.
So it’s no surprise that Giants president and CEO John Mara admitted on Wednesday that he was never ashamed of the product he put on the field.
“During the season, I thought we got to the bottom of it,” Mara said, “then it got a little worse every week.
The referee betrayed everything he promised the fans to represent their football team until he called for them to play secretly in the tumultuous form of that one-on-one surrender. Surprisingly, while the entire league and all its fans agreed that the referee should leave after those two games, Mara downplayed their importance, saying “these are not my favorite games in the world” and describing them. gave. as “just one small factor in the general scheme of things.”
Although she admits she has to justify the confidence of the fans every season, Mara is generally telling the truth. He admitted that the recruitment process for Dave Getlmann, who was brutally over-equated as general manager, was too narrow and hasty, and ultimately, the recruitment helped more than the judge to overthrow the giants.
But Mara may have been embarrassed when she suggested that weak sneaks make up another three-fold game on the scoreboard filled with them. The 17-year playoff game under Mara’s father, Wellington, was best described by Joe Pisarcik in 1978 and Germ Edwards ’goals, as well as the last eight to seven two-digit defeats. The stupidity of the referee ordering Jake Fromm to turn over and play dead will amaze you forever. Twice.
The referee said he wanted to contact Bill Parcels and Tom Coflin, the franchise’s two-time Super Cup champion, coaches who understand you can play effective football from almost anywhere on the field. Didn’t the referee remember that Koflin’s decision to actually play from the 1-yard line in 2011 led to Victor Cruz’s 99-yard Christmas shot against the Jets and started a six-game winning streak that ended with the Super Bowl XLVI. title?
No, it doesn’t matter anymore. Most importantly, how the giants react to their insults – their new rock bottom – and the initial indication is really encouraging. After a boy scandal and the appearance of a plane flying with a banner carrying a message that there were enough fans over the Giants Stadium, Commissioner Pete Rozelle put a player named George Young in the middle of a family brawl (Wellington) . nephew against Tim) and soon the giants began to win.
This time, Roger Goodell doesn’t want to appoint any peacekeepers (thank goodness), because the only positive thing we can say about the “Giants” today is that they don’t need John Mara and Steve Tisch. But they need a general manager, and the truth is that for the first time since Yang was installed in February 1979, the Giants find this man outside the family. Mara admitted that her franchisee would have no chance if she “didn’t blow it up completely and start over”. The Giants will not only hire someone who has nothing to do with the organization, but will also hire someone under the age of 50 to emphasize that their facility is no longer Jurassic Park.
Some people are carrying torches and forks, coming for Giants leaders Chris Mara (John’s brother) and Tim McDonnell (John’s nephew), but the new GM (and his new coach) are more tied to the team’s failures and future successes. ‘liq will be. . Mara has made it clear that the fate of All-Gettleman All-Stars, Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones will be decided by decision makers who have not yet been hired.
“This time we’ll fix it,” Mara promised.
We’ll see about that.
But for now, that’s progress. Just like in the late 1970s, the giants had to be embarrassed to make radical changes. They are putting their first baby steps in the right direction.
