John Mara is president and CEO of the Giants. Mara is the person that most Big Blue fans recognize as the team owner. The other owner, Steve Tisch, is the team's chairman and executive vice president. However, Tisch has spent most of his tenure in the behind the scenes, especially over the past few years after suffering a loss of his daughter in August of 2020. Following the Giants' 31-24 victory on Sunday, the 73 year-old film and television producer had some enthusiastic words about his team.
Davis Webb started his collegiate career at Texas Tech University for three years, playing 10 games in his freshman season and sparingly the next two. Webb transferred to Cal to be the starter for his senior year. In 2017, he was drafted by the New York Giants in the 3rd round. Then general manager Jerry Reese thought the 6-5 Texan could possibly develop into the heir to Eli Manning's quarterback throne. As we know, that didn't work out. On Sunday, Davis Webb had the job of filling in for Daniel Jones, as the Giants rested 19 of their starting 22 players, in anticipation of next week's playoff game against Minnesota.
Tigers don't change their stripes. Just like selfish people don't often change. It happens but not often. So, when former New York Giant, Odell Beckham Jr. was kicked off a plane on Sunday morning for nothing more or less than complete selfish behavior, red flags should have been flying for Big Blue general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll.
This is no secret. The New York Giants need some offensive production. In week 8, prior to the bye, the Seattle Seahawks held quarterback Daniel Jones to 176 passing yards. That's not an alarmingly low number. However, when the total number of offensive yards totals 225 for the game, then the Giants have an issue they need to address.
New York Giants fans are enjoying their team's incredible turnaround. With a 6-2 record coming out of the bye week, Big Blue fans realize that a playoff birth is more than within reach. That is if the Giants can continue to play above expectations and win the games they "should" win, like against the Texans and then the Lions. If head coach Brian Daboll and company continue to hold serve, Thanksgiving Day at 4:30pm could be an epic holiday battle in Dallas. Who would have thought that at the start of the season??
The NFL season starts this week. The never-ending water-cooler talk about the Giants, the Bills, even the Jets, begins in full swing, as the final minutes of true summer dissolve Labor Day weekend. School is back. Summer hours are over. So, who are the 10 New York Giants you should know about to keep up with the conversations this fall?
