This new Giants era is already off to a quick start as more change has followed the firings of Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese. It almost seems that the organization from top to bottom is, at this point, just trying to please everyone involved and get them over the hump into the offseason where everyone can regroup and focus on bouncing back.
Take a look at what interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo has already done. He changed McAdoo's "recovery day" practice on Friday, and instead, made a traditional walk-through day on Saturday with a regular practice Friday. If you guys remember the anonymous quotes a few weeks ago, it referenced a displeasure toward McAdoo's plan, and Spagnuolo immediately changed that in his new position.
Ownership has also continued its campaign of apologizing for this awful season. Mara and Tisch wrote a letter to the Giants' season ticket holders, saying sorry for the product that has been on the field this season and vowed to change it to the best of their abilities in 2018. This letter was much needed from these two as it shows they understand the frustrations of Giants fans this season, and it is also good to see them already in the process of returning the organization to balance by looking for permanent replacements at GM and head coach.
No one said this process was going to be easy, and I'm certainly not saying everything is going to go back to normal. The Giants are likely going to lose out the rest of the season, but there is something to still be happy about with ownership and everyone else underneath recognizing the displeasure and frustration this season -- no matter how late it might be. Changes are being made, like the Eli Manning expected start on Sunday, that are simply there to please the fans.
It isn't the final solution to the problem, but first steps are being made out of the deep hole the team dug themselves into this season.
