SPOTLIGHT:

Mara says Giants’ window is wide

Posted by Dan Salomone on January 25, 2013 – 9:00 am

maraThere is little consolation taken from winning seasons when they fall short of the playoffs. But that’s what the Giants have done two of the last three years — winning 10 games in 2010 and nine this past season — and that is why president and CEO John Mara doesn’t think they have to tear the whole thing down.

Having a two-time Super Bowl MVP in Eli Manning helps, too.

“He’s [32] years old. He’s got a lot of years left,” Mara told reporters Thursday after a press conference announcing plans for next year’s Super Bowl, which will be played in MetLife Stadium and feature lead-up events throughout the New York-New Jersey area. “I think our window is still pretty wide. I think as long as he’s under center, we have a chance to win.”

Speaking of chances, the Giants will look back this offseason at all of the ones they failed to capitalize on in 2012. For Mara, the consecutive losses on the road to the Falcons and the Super Bowl-bound Ravens stick out in particular. The Giants lost Weeks 15 and 16 by a combined score of 67-14, letting the division lead slip away.

“Obviously, we were very disappointed not being in the postseason,” he said. “I haven’t quite gotten over that yet, particularly back-to-back games in Atlanta and Baltimore. Sometimes you go through things like that, and it just strengthens our resolve to put a better team on the field next year.”

Mara added: “You have to have patience. You can’t get too high when you are winning and too low when you are losing. You just have to have some confidence in your organization, and I have confidence in our organization. We have a franchise quarterback, and we’ve got a lot of good players on defense, but obviously a couple parts were missing, and that’s something we need to look at.”

    WE NEED A LINEBACKER WHO CAN STOP THE RUN AND COVER AND WE NEED AT LEAST 1 CB WHO CAN COVER (UNLIKE WEBSTER) AND I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A OFFENSIVE LINEMAN WHO CAN ACTUALLY BLOCK AND STAY ON THE FIELD A WHOLE YEAR. BUT MOST OF ALL WE GOTTA GET THAT VOICE BACK ON DEFENSE SOMEONE LIKE A RAY LEWIS WHO CAN KEEP OUR DEFENSE MOTIVATED ALLLLL GAME NOT JUST WHEN WE’RE LOSING BUT WHEN WE ARE WINNING TOO

    John Mara & Steve Tisch…Please get your Heads out of the sand, and return to REALITY…While there is still time…Anyway you want to SLICE or Disect 2012, it comes down to (2) games…Vs Falcons & Ravens..WIN BOTH and we are in Playoffs..Without a doubt we played our VERY WORST in those games in ’12…I am a True Believer that when you miss the play0ffs, you not only need to start looking at Roster Changes,but ALSO need to Evaluate and make changes on the Coaching Staff…If an ousider was broght in to evaluate TC’s staff, without question both co-ordinators would be replaced, especially Perry Fewell….I understand Spags is available, I think someone should be giving him a call.

    While anyone can have an opinion, it is poosible that some of them miss the mark. Mr. Mara refers to patience. Correct, as far as it goes. As a fan since 1950, I have seen “Mara” patience pay off, but it took a very. very long time. As for blaming anything on those two late season losses against good teams, they did not sink the season, they mearely underlined it. You must beat the inferior teams, just in case your equals or betters kick your butt!

    Mr.Mara, the team is fine. mr.fuel I think should be able to go back to the drawing board with an added weapon, derell revis. Draft a few linemen and may be a half descent free agent signing to begin to prepare for the eventual retirement of mr. Snee. I would hate to see this team without him, much less without a suitable replacement. But hey you guys know best. You have two championships in your era of running things, as a giants fan I would like to see the third and fourth. Patriots who?

    The Gentleman is correct. No need to blow the whole thing up. The ownership has a steady hand on the tiller. Keep a tight grip and we will be fine.
    GO BIG BLUE!

    Revis Island in Big Blue Country? That is really interesting. Hadn’t thought of that, don’t know why not. Sure … that would be wonderful.
