"THE 2007 and 2011 GIANTS WERE NEVER PERFECT, NOR MEANT TO BE.  THEY WERE FIGHTERS, SCRAPPERS, NOW THEY CAN BE CALLED SOMETHING ELSE....WORLD CHAMPIONS!"

Teams need to develop their players and they need to have a plan of succession and not wait until their time is over. The Giants and Reese did not do that. They held on to Snee, Diehl, McKensie, Suebert and O'Hara far too long and then replaced them with Free Agents and Draft picks in lower rounds that did not work out and the results were disastrous. Finally figuring out that they needed to find better talent in the Draft but they didn't have the cap space to bring in FA Talent. Players like Baas, Boothe, McCants, Mosley, Herman, Brewer, Petrus and Walton didn't cut it while suddenly one of the best Offensive Lines in all of Football became one of the worst and it has yet to recover.
"There is a greater purpose...that purpose is team. Winning, losing, playing hard, playing well, doing it for each other, winning the right way, winning the right way is a very important thing to me... Championships are won by teams who love one another, who respect one another, and play for and support one another."
~ Coach Tom Coughlin

Ed:  If the players a team chooses are unfit for the task, it's impossible to develop them (or they will be limited in the extent to which they can develop).  Bob
