Matt Harris was just thrown out by the old Giants Beat guy on WFNZ.

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:

Ross is officially the new Rivera. Always the bridesmaid.

He'll get his shot eventually.

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.
