The New York Giants famously traded away Odell Beckham Jr. They let Landon Collins walk. They traded Olivier Vernon. And they're keeping Eli Manning for some fucking reason. What the hell are they doing, you ask? Don't expect an answer from anyone remotely related to the Giants' organization.
During a conference call, GM David Gettleman was asked pretty much just that. His response (via Giants.com):
“Really and truly, very honestly, it's not my responsibility to tell you guys what I'm doing. Just like it’s not my responsibility to respond to every rumor that comes down the pike. That’s not my job. It’s not my responsibility. Trust me, we’ve got a plan. Over time, you’ve got to be patient. Everybody wants answers now in this instant-gratification society, instant-gratification world, and everybody wants answers now. Over time, you’ll see it. You’ve got to trust it.”
I could have said this same exact thing after going into Target for paper towels and dog food and coming out with jeans, four pairs of shoes, a blender, and some hand towels.
So, like... who are you trying to convince here Dave? You traded away one of the best players in football, kept a quarterback who signs his name in crayon, and that's all you got for me? And you want us to trust you? Mmmk. Sure.
It's a little early (even for the Giants) to be writing off a team completely, because there is still the draft -- but if the G-Men don't do a little something smart to even just attempt to redeem themselves, I'm afraid for football fans in New York (and I'm counting Jets fans too). Saquon is still a beast though.
