Jerry Reese watched 'a great show' Saturday night. It just was happening around 3,000 miles away from MetLife Stadium. A day after head coach Ben McAdoo practically begged fans to show up to support the 1-8 Giants, Reese jetted cross country to scout top quarterback prospects, USC's Sam Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen, who were squaring off at the L.A. Coliseum. The Big Blue General Manager was spotted near the USC end zone during the game, according to multiple reports. It's clear Reese knows he needs to do something to save his job, if it isn't already too late. With the Giants' season a lost cause heading into their game Sunday against the Chiefs, Reese is anticipating a Top-2 draft pick with his team staring straight down a clear path to a possible 1-15 finish. Whether or not they have a shot at the No. 1 overall pick is in the hands of the winless Browns. Either way, Darnold and Rosen are the prized prospects in this year's draft, assuming the USC quarterback decides to leave school. With Eli Manning's career dwindling faster than expected, Reese will be tasked with finding a successor. He drafted University of California quarterback Davis Webb in the third round last year, but Webb has yet to be active for the Giants this season. Jets GM Mike Maccagnan was also spotted at the Coliseum Saturday, but he likely had this date circled on his calendar for months. The Jets, after all, were tabbed as one of the worst teams in the NFL heading into this season but are, much to the chagrin of their fans, 4-6 right now and not in prime position to grab either Darnold or Rosen.
