It's pretty clear that ol' Beanie was never in serious consideration for the job.

JR wasn't paying Ernie Accorsi a hefty fee to effin' hire BEANE.

Loved the logic of those that out of one side of their mouth accuse JR of being cheap, but out of the other side think he would hire Ernie Accorsi and pay him a hefty fee to do jack. :lol:

Part of me wonders if the buzz that Beane was a serious candidate might have been floated by Beane himself, or via his agent. That could be seen as a reason to drop him.

Anything is possible.. I tell you one thing if I knew I was last in a race for a job, I'd try my best to get my name out there lol. Yeah JR might have b**ch slapped him and told him to get out "That's not how we do things around here son"

I've never thought the whole time that we would be going with Beane, as perviously stated: why would we bring someone in to do a GM search if we were just going to hire from within?

if it doesn't smell right, it probably isn't.

Occam's Razor, indeed.

Matt Harriss (yes, apparently that's how it's spelled) is listed on the Giants website as Director of Football Operations (no bio).

Amusingly enough, that's the same title Brandon Beane held before being named interim GM.

Nice! Good hire. Maybe JR is finally starting to stop settling and start going for the best.

I'm curious as to the length and size of his contract.

60 isn't really old for his position. I don't see why people are harping on that for. It just means that he's wiser and has more experience. From the very beginning I liked Gettleman the most. He has a proven track record of greatness that likely won't stop here. I also love that he's even recently been actively involved with scouting other teams. He seems like a true football guy who really understands the sport and how it works. I'm really excited for the hire.

Hm?

Harriss is in his seventh season within the football operations department of the New York Giants. He joined the organization just prior to the 2006 NFL Draft. In his first year with the Giants, Harriss assisted former general manager Ernie Accorsi in his final season with the team. He has since worked with assistant general manager Kevin Abrams on all aspects of the salary cap, CBA compliance and player contract negotiations. Prior to joining the Giants, Harriss spent five seasons in the NFL League Office. He began as an intern in the Football Operations department in September 2001, and by December he became a player personnel analyst for the Management Council. His responsibilities included salary cap and free agency management, annual NFL draft eligibility, as well as being versed on all personnel rules in order to assist the 32 NFL teams. During his last three seasons in the league office, Harriss also worked with the officiating department as an instant replay booth communicator during games. Harriss graduated from Lafayette College in 2001 with a degree in history. A native of Bronxville, N.Y., he now resides in Manhattan.

Garofolo also says there's a guy named Matt Harris who works in the Giants FO that Gettleman might bring along as a possible "cap guy".

Edit: CPF96 beat me to it :lol:

Do you have a link good sir?

Went to the Giants "Front Office" page. His name is listed there but it doesn't have a link. His bio is apparently still on the site but the link from that page is disabled for some reason.

Guessing you direct searched. Probably what I should have done :lol:

Do you have a link good sir?

I didn't, but UNCR did (look above).
