Imma bright-sider...especially during this time of year. JoeD saw Sam Darnold for one season, and even with Sam's 6-2 finish, he knew Sam would never be 'the guy', and shipped him out. I think JoeD came to a similar conclusion on ZW. But his options are limited. He can't ship Z out. He's kinda stuck with him. Last place finish and worse QB in the league is NOT what he envisioned for his star draft pick. JD's only hope for a lucrative 2nd contract is to build an offense so talented it thrives with decent but not great QB play. I think this explains Joe's switch from building thru the trenches to taking the best top talent he could find. The Giants' draft of Thibs and Neal is exactly what he'd have loved to do, solidify both trenches for the next decade. But after ZW's play last season, he's a bit panicked and went in a different direction. I think he came to the same conclusion with Saleh too. Last place finish is NOT what JD thought he was getting with a top defensive HC. Again, JD is panicking a bit. Garrett Wilson, Brice Hall, Jeremy Ruckert. Best WR, RB and TE he could draft to 'help' ZW as much as possible. The oline will have to do. Sauce Garner, Jermaine Johnson, Michael Clemons. Best DB and Pass Rushers he could draft. Saleh needs help...big time. I think if Zack Wilson and our defense had held their own last season, JD would have finished his work in the trenches. But his 6yr contract is now a 2yr contract and 'win games now' seems more urgent than finishing what he started in the trenches. It happens with every re-build.
