In a real stand up move by the owners of the New York Giants. Reaching out to the season ticket holders and fans of the team, the ownership has written an open letter trying to smooth over what is without doubt one of the worst periods in this proud franchises history.
As if the team’s performances on the field, the benching of their star quarterback Eli Manning wasn’t enough, this week we saw the club fire head coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese and fans and pundits alike are scratching their heads saying, what next?
The benching of Eli Manning was condemned throughout the NFL, and he is now set to start for next Sundays game, too little too late some people are saying. At 2-10 the team and owners are now trying to save face before the end of the season and in a move to give some sense of comfort to fans, John Mara and Steve Titsch have penned the letter below to apologize for what has been an “extremely disappointing” season indeed.
Here’s the letter in full.
“Dear (Giants fan),
“Today, we made the difficult decision to relieve head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese of their duties. This season has been extremely disappointing for our organization, and we determined now was the right time to make these changes.
“Steve Spagnuolo, our defensive coordinator and a former NFL head coach, will serve as interim coach for the remainder of the season. Kevin Abrams, our assistant general manager for the last 16 years, will assume the duties of interim general manager. As owners of this franchise, our goal is to deliver the highest quality of football to you, and we know we have fallen short of that goal this season. We will conduct a diligent and thorough search for a new head coach and general manager.
We know you and all of our fans have been frustrated this year, and many of you have voiced your disappointment and displeasure. Your passion for our franchise does not go unnoticed, and we appreciate your continued support as we move forward to provide you with a renewed sense of Giants Pride.”
