Giants co-owner John Mara believes in his football team. So much so, that when he met with the media during his annual preseason get-together, he said Dave Gettleman is not necessarily on the hot seat.
He was fibbing.
There’s no seat hotter at 1925 Giants Drive than Dave Gettleman’s. This is Year 4 for the overconfident general manager, and if Mara’s squad fails to make the playoffs, Gettleman will be a goner, and deservingly so.
“We’re all on the hot seat, with our fans in particular,” Mara said. “We’ve given them too many losing seasons. It’s time for us to start winning. But no, I wouldn’t say Gettleman is on the hot seat. I wouldn’t say that’s an accurate statement.”
Look, what else is Mara going to say? But rest assure, it will feel like the sun is under Gettleman’s fanny if this season goes south. Under Gettleman’s leadership, the Giants have won a measly 15 games. Yeah, you read that right, 15 games!
