GM Jerry Reese Says Giants Will Make Playoffs

General Manager Jerry Reese says the Giants will be a playoff team for the first time in three years.  He also says that fans are in panic mode.

“We won 10 games last year; it wasn’t like we were 6-10,” Jerry Reese said.  “We expect to build off that.  If we made a couple of plays here and there last year, we would have been in the playoffs.  And who knows what would have happened?  But it didn’t happen, so we will make the plays this time and we’ll get in the playoffs and make a run.”

Uh, okay.  Let me get this straight.  The Giants could’ve made plays to get into the playoffs, but didn’t.  The Giants could’ve gone on a run if they were able to get in the playoffs, but didn’t.  The Giants will automatically make the plays this season that they were unable to make last year.  Really?  I see the words “if” and “could’ve” way too much in those statements.

Reese went on to say, “It seems like people are in a panic about the perception (that) we are not doing a lot.  We had a game plan; we stuck to our game plan.  When I say sticking to our game plan, we made responsible offers and if those offers weren’t good enough, we would move on.  The proof’s in the pudding. We’ll see when we get out there.  We feel like we have a strong squad.”

Okay, there isn’t a false “perception” that the Giants aren’t doing much to upgrade their roster this offseason.  They’ve lost free agents Plaxico Burress, Steve Smith, and Kevin Boss.  They’re still negotiating with Osi Umenyiora.  Not doing a lot is exactly what the Giants have done this offseason.
