In case you think the NY Post and its employees aren't worth your click

Adam Schefter:
Giants are planning to hire Bills' asst GM Joe Schoen as their GM, per sources. They still have to work out a contract, but Giants' other GM finalists have been told that they're out. If they work out the deal, Schoen is expected to be the Giants' next GM.

Unless he can trade a bathmat for Josh Allen, that isn't going to be easy.

He inherits a team that not only sucks ass but is somehow already over the salary cap for 2022. It's probably the worst situation to walk into in the NFL -- but, fortunately for Schoen, the only way from here is up. At least they have two high draft picks to play with.

There are some players they can cut to save money under the cap, but those are mostly players they'll want to keep around, e.g., James Bradberry. Blake Martinez looks like a good candidate to be a cap casualty. Maybe Sterling Shepard moves on, maybe Kyle Rudolph. Most of the other big contracts have even bigger dead-cap figures than salaries. They can also create cap room by extending some guys, but that just kicks the can down the road. More likely they just create enough room to sign their draft class and some band-aid types and look forward to another high pick in 2023.

He downgraded from New York to New Jersey

Wow:

the first Giants general manager with no ties to the team since 1979

But how will he know how to do things the "Giants' Way", if he has no ties to the organization? (And yes, I realize that's the point, but it's surprising that they actually went there)

From Giants.com
Prior to joining the Bills in 2017, he had been in the Miami Dolphins front office for most of the previous decade, serving the last three as the director of player personnel.

I don't get why the Giants media wants to sh*t on him before he puts ink on his contract.

The Giants dont need to be good to win again. They just need to be NFC East good

If you want to fix the disaster that the Giants have become, start by putting John Mara in a retirement home.  It will also improve the league by curbing pig-farking-ignorant ideas like ramping up taunting calls.

If this ends w/them winning the Super Bowl and the Giants playing "Danke Shoen" at a ticker tape parade that'd be pretty cool.

While he wasn't the GM in Buffalo, when he came to the Bills with Beane, the Bills GM the situation was similar, bad team with a cap problem.

It's not easy to find a franchise QB, that's for sure.  The Bills spent 20 years trying before finally hitting on Allen.

On the other hand, a big part of the reason that Allen is what he is now, is that the Bills front office worked overtime to surround Allen with weapons (Diggs, Sanders, even Beasley, who - despite being a Covidiot - is a fine slot receiver), and also a strong defense so that he wasn't always put in a position of playing from behind and having to try to win the game by himself.  That, combined with patience to endure the ups and downs of his first two seasons, allowed him to develop into the confident QB he is today.  He wasn't thrown to the wolves and he was given time to develop.  That front office support is why Allen didn't go the way of Sam Darnold.

So I'm not surprised that the Bills front office staff that accomplished that is in demand.

That pic looks unfortunately like Jimmy Carr.

Damn near anything would be an improvement over the catastrophe that was the previous organization leadership of the Giants. Drafting Saquon was malpractice when they needed a QB for the future and a line to protect him. Jones never had a chance with the incompetent OC and HC and bad O line. And that's the GM's job.

These owners don't give a shiat whether they win or lose, they profit either way. Hiring shils that can keep them 30/70 is enough.
