if an unemployed Gettleman, knowing he was likely to be interviewed by the Giants, had talked to Wilks about the job?

I'm done discussing with you. There is plenty of evidence to support my position. You are obviously going to rationalize it away as no bit deal -fine. You have a right to your opinion. There are many many articles out there characterizing the situation as turmoil or similar adjective from reporters talking to people in the locker room. To me there is smoke, there is probably fire. That's just how I see it.


That's fine. We have a different view of turmoil.

It is all good - opinions are like AHs - we all have them. We'll just disagree.
I think that folks are overrating the relationship of the draft pick  
Heisenberg : 1/9/2018 11:59 am : link
and the coach hired. The job of the head coach is to ensure the development of all the players, including the QB. If he can't do it himself, his job is to put a plan in place to get it done by the staff.

This is especially true given the GM Coach hierarchy.

If they Giants are planning to draft a QB at 2, they need to be asking each coach, offensive minded or not, what his thoughts on QB development is.

LG in NYC : 1/9/2018 12:01 pm : link
as counterpoint to you, Parcells was on Michael Kay show last week and specifically said he didn't think it was necessary to have an Offensive guy as HC to groom a young QB. In fact he scoffed at the notion of a 'QB whisperer' and propped up the idea of why a Defensive guy makes for a better HC, and you can support your young QB by putting talented OC/QB coach around him.

of course, he is likely a little biased since he was a Defensive minded HC.
Are the people "not excited" about the Wilks hire  
ZogZerg : 1/9/2018 12:01 pm : link
the same who weren't excited about the DG hire? There were a lot of those.

If DG really likes Wilks, then I'm excited about the hire. He obviously knows him very well.

Also, that would mean that neither of the NE coordinators blew them away in the interview since they did interview the "hot candidates".

To either not draft a QB, or draft one without a HC with offensive expertise, has the potential to be a major setback...


Well then, we'd best not draft WRs, RBs, OTs, etc, if Wilks brings nothing to the offensive side.

There is a reason teams hire OCs and QB coaches.

Rong5611 : 1/9/2018 12:06 pm : link
I disagree, they'll take a QB if that player makes the most sense whether its Wilks or an offensive coach (McDaniel, etc). The OC and QB Coaches will be top tier regardless as well.

BTW, I find hard to believe they wouldn't take a QB unless they absolutely don't think Rosen, Darnold and/or Mayfield are the real deal -- beyond a shadow of a doubt. Everything we have heard suggest these guys are franchise QB's (I think) To gamble on Webb would be a huge risk.

Pretty obvious the job will be his. Very little experience as a DC and no offensive experience. This offense is broken. Is Wilks a good fit for a new QB and a new offense ? Pardon me for not being more excited about Wilks/Norv Turner building a new offense.

I agree 1000 percent. Giants will draft a QB and hiring Wilks makes no sense at all. It's nice that they view him as a quality person but he will fail miserably with a new QB. This looks like a disaster to me.

our problems on offense are pretty easy to identify in my view and DG called it out. fix oline, run football and get consistent play out of QB. Quite frankly we have enough in the receiving corp with some better coaching, discipline and mentorship. A serious climate of professional devoid of assholes and grab ass types that do not take their job seriously.

I'm in bizarro world sometimes.

Do people not realize that part of the HC (and GM's) job is to surround themselves with the best fit of coaches so they can LEAD the team?

How on Earth would choosing a QB mean Wilks isn't the best fit? If he's hired, we don't even know who the OC is. Wilks job will be to lead players, not stay curled up with the D in film room all the time.

In the past couple days, I've read some really odd things. A couple posters insinuated that Wilks wants to coach from the booth because that's where he is as DC (with one guy even recommending an Assistant HC to be on the field!)

I've heard that as DC and a first time HC, he'll have no clue how to handle the offense.

He doesn't have to do those things!! He has to lead players. There are a ton of teams who have a HC with a background on one side of the ball that excel on the other side of the ball. Hell, just look to Belicheck. His teams have been ranked in the bottom half of the league for defense in 2 of his SB wins.

I just wish people would stop making up shitty explanations on Wilks when half the board never heard of him prior to last month

It's just these fans finding ANY excuse for the Giants not to draft a quarterback. It's beyond ridiculous at this point. They have the #2 pick in a strong QB class, a chance to set themselves up for the next decade+ and fans want to do anything BUT take a chance on a franchise QB, because "none of these guys are sure things".

The choice of offensive and defensive coordinators, on the other hand, may have an impact because certain prospects may be a better match for the system being introduced than other prospects (WCO vs vertical play-action offense, 3-4 defense vs 4-3 defense).

Interesting because there just hasn't been much buzz about Shurmur. You'd think the beats would catch wind if he was the front-runner.

I waffle between Shurmur and Wilks but honestly the only reason I like Wilks is because he seems to be Gettleman's guy and I trust Gettleman's judgment more than Mara's.

Fox has never returned to the coordinator level since getting his first head-coaching job in Carolina. Turner was only a coordinator in San Francisco for a year before taking his third HC gig in San Diego. And after being fired there, he was so content being an offensive coordinator that he quit on the Vikings in the middle of his third year, after one season in Cleveland.


Well they weren't as well thought out as a professional proposal would be, but what I was thinking is that they've both been successful coordinators, failed as HC's, and might be open to coming back as coordinators for the long haul. I credit Fox for the Giants defensive success under Fassel's watch. Turner has a strong track record as a coordinator and has developed several strong offenses.

I don't know whether either would be open to such an offer or if they've reached the point in their careers where they would be happy as coordinators winning championships until retirement or not. That would require real research. :-)

Anyway, I just think a first time HC would do well to have more experience behind him than just recently promoted position coaches, who either struggle or remain hot candidates for promotion themselves. Either way it's hard to have continued success that way.

This is DG's show and Wilks will be riding on his coattails all the way to the top ( hopefully). Wilks job is to be the CEO of the team and leader of men. Wilks will take care of the rest.

This is how I see it as well. All of the other candidates who've been interviewed already are either with teams that are still playing or are coaches who I don't think the Giants would be terribly upset if they went somewhere else. Wilks is the only one... at this time... that's completely free to move on whenever he finds a team that he wants and wants him.

I'm aware that it's not even close to apples to apples, although it does require some of the same administrative oversight and management skills. The size of the stadium doesn't make those responsibilities any different.

That said, I do know that Wilks' HC experience isn't really something to point to as a selling point or a bullet on his resume - I just think some folks are overly consumed with experience over and above the leadership skills that are consistent with successful head coaches. Wilks hasn't been my choice - I've stated before that I prefer Shurmur, but the opposition to Wilks just feels like recency bias because of McAdoo rather than an objective consideration of Wilks as a candidate.

Fair enough. Although I firmly believe that Reese and TC collaborated a lot more often on player evaluations and acquisitions than most here seem to want to do, I don't see it as completely unbelievable that perhaps TC would've pounded the table for a player here or there and was overruled by Reese. I'm not saying that this WAS the case... just that I'm not completely dismissive of the idea that it could've been the case.

Just for the record though, I'll point out that Coughlin's first draft choice in the Jags' FO was a 'shiny, fast toy'. *grin*

My point is a little deeper. In your reference to Bill Belichick, BB had been a HC in Cleveland. So he had been fully engaged in the offensive side of the ball. There is little doubt he had a command on both sides of the ball.

There is nothing in Wilks' resume suggesting anything but a pure defensive mindset. Unless you consider being head coach at Savannah State material...so that's the point.

He's already proven that several times.

I don't think you really know much about the situation with Carolina. He doesn't have an axe to pick - he stood his ground against Richardson and was fired. This is a guy makes decisions on data-based and scouting-based criteria. He doesn't believe much in uneducated guessing.

When he selects a player or a coach, you can bet he's done his homework on the positives and negatives and assessed their risks, without an emotional bias.

People who think Gettleman is going to dictate things have really not followed his career at all. Imn each of his stops, he has mentored people and gave them decision-making authority to help them further themselves.
Ok, but maybe he has a bone to grind.
