THINKING OUTSIDE THE BIG BLUE BOX
Long-time readers of the GBN will know that GBN Editor and Publisher Grumpy Lindsay is a life-long fan of the New York Giants. In fact, the GBN was originally intended to be a Giants-oriented draft site, hence the Blue in Great Blue. However, while the site soon went league-wide Grumpy remains a steadfast Giants’ supporter and from time to time publishes his thoughts on the state of the Giants and especially their draft process.
Giants fire top personnel guy
Giants fire top personnel guy … New Giants’ G.M. Dave Gettleman isn’t wasting anytime putting his stamp on the organization. Just after taking over, the Giants have fired longtime V.P. of Player Evaluation Marc Ross. Ross has been with the Giants for 11 years and ran their draft the past 5-6 years. Because Ross has overseen the Giants scouting staff this fall, it was generally expected that he would have at least been kept around through the draft. It is also a tad ironic as Ross was one of the other people the Giants interviewed for the vacant G.M. job.
