John Mara needs to go on a firing spree of the New York Giants franchise

Remember when the New York Giants were once a prominent organization in the NFL that was prided on winning?

Those were the days.

Because now? The Giants are 22-55 since they last were a playoff team in 2016. In 77 games played, the Giants have won 22 of them.

And under the current Giants regime that was assembled in 2018 under general manager Dave Gettleman, they are 19-42.

So what does Giants owner John Mara need to do when he sees his team and staff at MetLife Stadium?

FIRE SALE. FIRING SPREE. EVERYONE MUST GO!

Dave Gettleman needs to go, and we all know he’s likely out after the 2021 season. But why delay the search of the next GM? Fire him now.

Joe Judge ABSOLUTELY deserves to be fired. There are no positives from these games. The only positive will be the one where he’s out as the head coach and on his way back to New England as Bill Belichick’s latest failed assistant coach who didn’t make it as a head coach.

The Giants are embarrassing and Mara needs to do something to stop the continual embarrassment in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Clean the entire house out, burn it down and start all over.
