    December 26, 2006 -- THE Giants made a mistake when they passed on Charlie Weis three years ago for Tom Coughlin.

    At this crossroads in their storied history, they must not make that mistake again.

    When the Giants begin cleaning their crumbling house, Plan A should be going after Weis the way Lawrence Taylor went after quarterbacks.

    Plan B, if he is attainable, would be to lure Scott Pioli away from Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick, make him the next GM and tell him to go get Weis out of South Bend, which he would want to do anyway.

    Too bad that Charlie Weis has said that he was going to be staying in South Bend. He just finished building a house and Notre Dame gave him a huge extension. Weis isn't Nick Saban.

    The article is based on no facts but it is merely one guys opinion on what they should do.

    And this guy needs a realtiy check. Getting Weis and Pioli away from their current jobs is easier said than done.

    Weis to the Giants makes a lot of sense and its something I've been thinking about for a while. That Giant team isn't far away and coming from ND, he has a chance to fall assbackwards into a strong position near his hometown.

    This means nothing. He can go to the NFL if he wants....even though I think he stays with ND.

    Sure it means something. ND can't stop him from leaving but with money like this :

    "Weis’ deal five years through 2015. By the end of the deal, he will make a reported $30 million-$40 million at Notre Dame"

    The Giants won't be able to tempt him just with money. The Giants and ND are supposedly his two dream jobs so maybe he would go - but the extension definitely means a lot.

    It's a wet dream article, but were I an NFL owner, I'd first try to hire Pioli and then let him hire my HC. You'd likely get a compatible duo who would work together to staff the team. The RAC situation is the antithethis of this.

    Didn't the Seahawks already try to lure Pioli away with a bunch of money a fews years back?

    Yes, multi-billionaire Paul Allen of Microsoft fame tried.
    Not everyone is motivated by money alone.

    I wonder if BB ever wanted the Giants job. Imagine him going head-to-head with Tuna twice a year.

    Living in SW CT, I get the joy of listening to the NY sports radio (although every now and then one of the stations gets outpowered by 1510 up in Boston!). And at least two different hosts were saying that the Giants should try to get Pioli and Weis. One of them, though, was smart enough to note that the Gints would have to pony up $15M or so to ND to buy out Weis' contract.

    In any case, I think Weis is perfectly happy right where he is, and I doubt he takes them up on the offer.

    Pioli is one to watch, he is from Washingtonville, N.Y and has connections to the Giants. I have heard they prefer their next GM come from within the organization but would be surprised if they don't at least interview SP.

    I believe Weis has a "Giants clause" in his contract.

    Definitely not worried about Weis going to the Giants. He had said time and time again that ND would have to fire him for him to go anywhere else. I am more worried about Pioli than I am about Weis. Weren't there talks of just this past offseason about him getting a GM job elsewhere? I may have it wrong so don't quote me on it.
