In a recent episode of HBO’s Insecure, the main character is forced to take on a new job as an assistant general manager for her basketball team. In this position she must deal with many demanding and frustrating personalities from players, coaches, referees and fans. Regardless of what happens in the show or how it ends up going down, one thing is certain: New York sports fans are tough customers that can’t be please no matter what you do. Fans have been notoriously difficult since their inception but things have only gotten worse over time with social media platforms like Twitter giving them more ways than ever to voice their opinions about teams and athletes alike. While some may argue these online criticisms don’t go anywhere because most people aren’t professionals who actually know anything about business operations- they tend to believe every single complaint made by fans will lead directly to change- I’m here to let you know there’s not always truth in gossip so keep your chin up! Sports fandom has become too much for me lately so instead I’ll talk about my favorite sport – baseball! Category: Baseball
“Everyone in New York Hates the General Manager” is a headline that was published on Bleacher Report. The article discusses the rumors of how the general manager of the New York Giants is hated by most people in the team.
On Monday Night Football in Week 8, the New York Giants fought valiantly against the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite their best efforts, the squad was unable to win the game and remained in last place in the NFC East. Who is to blame for the Meadowlands’ shambles? Mike Greenberg of ESPN has a suggestion, and he believes it begins with general manager Dave Gettleman.
The Kansas City Chiefs put up a fight against the New York Giants.
What a catastrophic waste of a fantastic defensive effort by the Giants, as well as a great missed chance in general. There are much too many penalties. There isn’t enough offense.
All of this adds up to another heartbreaking defeat to the Chiefs, this time by a score of 20-17. 👇 pic.twitter.com/HunEGcwDkH

The New York Giants were 2-5 into their Week 8 Monday Night Football clash against the Kansas City Chiefs.
On paper, a showdown between a club that hasn’t reached the playoffs since 2016 and the two-time AFC champs shouldn’t have been close. On the field, though, the game was closer than anyone expected (even Las Vegas, with its Giants +10.5 point line).
The Giants’ coaching staff, on the other hand, devised a defensive game plan based on the template used by KC’s previous opponents. They generally kept two safeties deep and challenged Patrick Mahomes to dink and dunk while making slow, calculated choices to drive down the field.
The plan worked really well. Mahomes was restricted to to 275 passing yards against the Giants. They also forced two sacks, an interception (with many more near-misses), and a fumble that was recovered by a Chief lineman. He had the longest completion of 24 yards.
The Giants took advantage of the Chiefs’ lackluster defense on offense. They ran for 72 yards and passed for 241 yards in a well-balanced assault. With the exception of one terrible interception on his first series of the game, quarterback Daniel Jones did a fantastic job protecting the ball.
The game came down to a late Chiefs drive, which the Giants stopped for a field goal. Then, with the ball and a chance to win, some poor play-calling and a horrible taunting penalty from fullback Elijhaa Penny led to a 20-17 victory for Kansas City.
The Giants may have performed well against a (supposedly) strong opponent, but, as Bill Parcells, one of the best coaches in Giants history, famously remarked, “you are what your record says you are,” and the club is currently 2-6.
Mike Greenberg provided his thoughts on the futures of the Giants’ general manager, coach, and quarterback.
There is enough of blame to go around when a team is 2-6. The general office, coaching staff, and players — particularly the starting quarterback — are all to blame.
The main suspects in the New York Giants organization are general manager Dave Gettleman, head coach Joe Judge, and quarterback Daniel Jones.
Mike Greenberg, a former ESPN personality and current host of Get Up!, spoke on the Pat McAfee Show before to the Giants’ Monday night game to assess the team from a New Yorker’s viewpoint. He revealed his predictions for the Giants’ general manager, head coach, and quarterback trio:
I believe it is quite likely that they will make a change at the top. The general manager is despised by everyone in New York. Dave Gettleman is his name, and he has, to put it bluntly, outstayed his welcome with nearly all of the Giants fans I know. Here’s the issue you’re dealing with. If you maintain Joe Judge and tell the person you’re hiring to oversee your business, ‘You have to keep this coach in place,’… Is Joe Judge deserving of being fired today? No. Have I seen enough to conclude, “I don’t think Joe Judge will be a successful NFL head coach?” I’ve done so.

Greeny goes on to argue that whomever succeeds Jones should retain him for at least one more season unless the club can make a home run offseason deal, like as acquiring Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers.
That would also make financial sense. Jones’ cap hit for the last year of his rookie contract is just $8.3 million.
During his tenure in New York, Dave Gettleman had a dismal draft record.

Dave Gettleman, the team’s general manager, arrived in New York after a five-year career with the Carolina Panthers.
In four of his five seasons as the Panthers’ chief front-office executive, the team reached the playoffs. During his tenure in Charlotte, though, Gettleman failed to grow via the draft. In the first two rounds, he made numerous ordinary to fruitless choices. Kelvin Benjamin, Kony Ealy, Devin Funchess, and Vernon Butler are among them.
The Giants have had an even poorer drafting track record. Saquon Barkley, the brilliant but often-injured No. 2 overall selection in 2018, was his first choice as Giants GM. In a vacuum, such choice is defendable. It becomes less so with Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, and even Sam Darnold still available at that time.
Jones, run-stuffing DT Dexter Jackson, and CB Deandre Baker were the three first-round choices he employed in 2019. Now with the Kansas City Chiefs, he has 0 career interceptions in 22 games.
The next season, Gettleman selected OT Andrew Thomas, who has performed well but is not deserving of the No. 4 overall selection. He moved back this year, much to the joy of Giants supporters, but then selected the fast but unpredictable Kadarius Toney a round sooner than most draft analysts projected.
While the Giants have some youthful talent that might blossom with the correct coaching, Gettleman’s lack of quick success in his first four seasons in New York/New Jersey will almost certainly mean that 2021 will be his last season in command, as Mike Greenberg predicted.
