Report: Reese still believes in Giants
A four-game losing streak by the New York Giants hasn’t done anything to change the opinion Jerry Reese has of his team.
The general manager famously said two months ago that this team had a chance to be better than the Super Bowl champions of two seasons ago. A month of losing and an opportunity to reflect in a badly needed bye week didn’t change his tune in comments made to the New York Daily News.
“I believe this is a playoff team,’’ Reese said. “We have a great opportunity to right the ship and I fully expect us to do that. I really do. Our coach has been in hard spots before. He always comes out with a good plan and great leadership. I'm not betting against him, I can tell you that.’’
Reese grabbed hold of a moral victory, saying the Giants played better last Sunday in losing at home to the San Diego Chargers, and made reference to the multiple injuries that have affected the defense.
“We still have a great opportunity to qualify for the tournament,” Reese said. “That's what's important to us. If you qualify and you get some momentum going through the playoffs, things can happen.”
