EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Figuring out what went wrong this season isn’t the New York Giants’ biggest problem heading into the bye week.
With a 1-6 record, the Giants probably are going to miss the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons, and co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch have to consider some housecleaning.
General manager Jerry Reese is certainly on the hot seat. The good will the 54-year-old Reese established in winning the Super Bowl in two of his first five seasons has been exhausted by the dismal recent run. This year’s performance is particularly frustrating because the Giants were coming off an 11-5 record in Ben McAdoo’s first season. Much was expected, even a run to a fifth Lombardi Trophy.
