The New York Giants' 2013 season wasn’t supposed to end like this.
After starting with so much hope of getting into the postseason tournament to possibly become the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl held in their home venue, the Giants' season unraveled faster than a poorly constructed web of lies.
When it was all over, the Giants saw their record drop to 7-9, their worst year-end mark under head coach Tom Coughlin since 2004.
As a result, the Giants are, for the first time in quite a while, looking at a major overhaul not just of their roster but also likely their coaching staff as well.
“There is definitely some reconstruction that needs to be done,” said Giants Senior Vice President and general manager Jerry Reese during his year-end press conference with the media.
“You’ve seen teams turn it around quickly in this league, but we definitely have some personnel issues that we need to resolve as we move into the next season, and we’ll work our butts off to resolve those things.”
