Holmgren made a million trades. He was his own man. Jerry Reese is his own man too. I'm sure he had different views than Ernie but Ernie was the boss. Reese has fielded the worst Giants team since the 1970s. No running backs. No offensive line. No tight end. No pass rushers. Linebackers aren't important in the Giants scheme so Reese gets a pass too there. Reese doesn't talk to the media. He is taking a page from the Sather playbook. No accountability.

Sather has to to go. If he has any self respect,Sather would admit his time running the team is over. He is 70 years old.
Reese gets a pass because he won two Super Bowls. How is he even comparable to Sather? I don't understand what you're getting at here.

If Sather wins a Cup, I'll allow him to die as GM for all I care. But he won't, so it's a moot point.

Just a poor comparison, though. The current Giants are team of former champions under Reese. The team has gotten older and is ready to be brought out to pasture.

I still think there should be a section of people at MSG behind the visiting bench, in curly wigs, and dark rimmed glasses, calling themselves the Pidtophiles. - Zamboner
