In 2011's offseason, no man was more despised than Jerry Reese. He spent '10's first round selection on an unknown defensive end name Jason Pierre-Paul when he should have drafted a linebacker. He drafted Prince Amukamara the following year when the team already had Corey Webster and Terrell Thomas.
The best Giants WR from the previous season was headed to rival Philly to join the Eagles "Dream Team." Starting TE Kevin Boss decided to head back to the West Coast, leaving Reese with no viable starter at the position.
Reese parted ways, forcing fans to say goodbye to two Giant favorites: Shaun O'Hara and Rich Seubert.
The best thing he did was bring in competition for Matt Dodge, by way of Steve Weatherford.
On all accounts, Jerry Reese failed the Giants.
Every single Giants fan can only sit back and hope that Reese continues to fail them as gloriously as he did this past year. Despite an IR that read like a book, Reese had all the pieces in place to bring the Lombardi trophy back to New York.
While New York may be in love with Reese for the time being, he has a lot of tough decisions ahead of him, many of which he will be booed for. Once the last of the confetti is swept from the streets of NYC, Reese will be hated again—at least part of the time.
Until, of course, he proves himself right once again.
