Jerry Reese

New Names, Same Game

For the first time in the Jerry Reese era, there’s a free agent frenzy in New York. The cash-strapped Giants cleared enough cap space to improve the offensive line, pluck one of the top free agents on the market from Denver, and totally revamp their secondary and return game. For Giants fans, this isn’t the norm.

Pugh! Giants Take a Safe Pick and Deep Breath in the First Round

As the saying goes, Bigger is better. That seemed to be a theme at the 2013 NFL Draft Thursday night as nine of the thirty-two picks were offensive linemen, one of whom is on his way to East Rutherford to play for Big Blue. The Giants selected Syracuse left tackle Justin Pugh with the 19th overall pick in the draft, which was a surprise to many (cough cough, myself) who thought the Giants would take their chances on one of the athletic pass rushers who were available at number 19 (cough cough , again, myself) or Xavier Rhodes, the talented Florida State cornerback. But as General Manager Jerry Reese alluded to in his presser, for as long as the Giants have been around, and it has been awhile, they have always picked the best player available. Justin Pugh fits the bill.

New York Giants GM Jerry Reese joined One on One and gave great insight on issues on and off the field.  Amit Badlani and I asked him if the Giants are finally hitting full stride, how they should fare against the Redskins (notably RGIII), and why Justin Tuck is still having a productive season. 

Reese also talked to us about the development of rookie running back David Wilson, what a typical day in the life of a football GM is like, and touched on Super Bowl XVIII being held in the Meadowlands in 2014
