Here is how the NFL world reacted to the news of Schoen's hire.
The quotes I've got from co-workers and those who know Joe Schoen around the league:— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) January 21, 2022
"Dude is gonna outwork you." "Earned keep."
#Giants got a good one in new GM Joe Schoen. Well-respected around the league. Started at the bottom and worked his way up the right way. Saw him at South Alabama/Coastal Carolina game the day after Thanksgiving trying to find players. No doubt he’s prepared for this job.— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) January 21, 2022
The Bills failed to make the playoffs 17 straight years before Beane and Schoen arrived in Buffalo in 2017. Since then Bills have been in playoffs 4/5 years and are still alive in this year's field.— Tom Rock (@TomRock_Newsday) January 21, 2022
That's the kind of turnaround the Giants want.
Joe Schoen calls it "an honor'' to be named GM of the Giants.— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) January 21, 2022
Giants thought their 3 finalists for the GM job were all excellent.— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) January 21, 2022
Joe Schoen just a little more excellent in their minds.
