NEW YORK (WFAN) — Though the Giants have won two consecutive games heading into their bye week, there’s no disputing the fact that the first half of the season was nightmarish for Big Blue.
The team kicked off the season with six straight losses before beating the lowly Eagles and Vikings in ugly fashion.
But for all the disappointment on the field through the season’s first two months, general manager Jerry Reese commended Giants fans on Wednesday for sticking it out through the hard times and never taking their feet off the pedal at home games.
“We’re fortunate we have three home games in a row,” the executive told WFAN host Mike Francesa. “And our fans have been terrific, Mike. Even when we hadn’t won a game over there … at our last game out at MetLife Stadium, our fans were cheering like crazy for us. Obviously they’re disappointed like we’re disappointed that our record is what it is, but when you go to MetLife, our fans bring it.”
New York will host the Raiders, Packers and Cowboys in East Rutherford following the bye week. The Giants will also play the Seahawks at home in Week 15 and the Redskins at home in the final content of the regular season.
“I’m proud to be a part of the Giants’ organization, to have fans like this,” Reese told Francesa. “We just want to continue to battle for them, so at the end of the season they can have something to be proud of and be happy about.”
The 2-6 Giants are only two games behind the Cowboys in the NFC East.
