Ben Allbright says Wilks or Patricia

Big Rick in FL : 1/10/2018 9:28 am
Last week he told me to keep an eye on Jim Schwartz as the Giants HC. Now he just told me Gettleman is looking at Wilks & Patricia. Where there is smoke there is fire. He's now the 3rd or 4th writer whose mentioned Patricia.
Who is

Someone within the organization is clearly

Allbright is a reporter who works in Denver. Is very reliable though. He's broken a lot of news. Normally if he says something he's right.

Gotcha, thanks
Which of the three names  
Rocky369 : 1/10/2018 9:44 am : link
is he going to be right about? Why does a Denver writer have connections within the NYG office?
It's actually either  
David B. : 1/10/2018 9:54 am : link
Wilks, Patricia, McDaniels, Shurmer, Studsville, Schwartz, or Spagnolo.

And probably not Spagnolo.

Call me Nostradamus.

They're ALL in the running until they're not.


interesting

It certainly sounds like it. Slade? :-D
Where there's smoke there's fire?

Most recently he talked up a guy we're not even interviewing. Now he's moved on to two guys we are interviewing. If that smoke suggests anything, it's that he's guessing like anyone else.

Most recently? That was 10 days ago. Things change. If you go by 4 or 5 other writers he's not wrong.

Maybe we should start interviewing minor league baseball coaches from Saskatchewan.

To what end?
Wilks  
bc4life : 1/10/2018 10:13 am : link
resume is a bit thin. One year as coordinator. Didn't we just fire a guy who had limited coordinator or HC experience?

I hear the stuff about Wilks, but this is arguably biggest Front Office decision in the last century, certainly since the era of the Super Bowl. They screw up this decision it will be the first thing out of every Giant fans mouth when the name Mara comes up (Wellington and the Misses, excluded).
So he told you Schwartz and he wasn't even  
ZogZerg : 1/10/2018 10:21 am : link
interviewed. How "reliable" can his info be?
Zog  
Big Rick in FL : 1/10/2018 10:24 am : link
Adam Schefter is the best in the business and said the same thing. Schwartz was the favorite according to Schefter and later he said Patricia. Things change.
If this is true  
LakeGeorgeGiant : 1/10/2018 10:26 am : link
it sounds like Patricia made a big impression in the interview.

Hitdog is the most reliable person for Giants news. Don't think I've ever seen him get anything wrong. He also mentioned Schwartz. Multiple times.

Mind clarifying? Decision to hire him? Decision from him to accept an offer from NYG? Not buying the Patricia stuff?

Hitdog, Thatlimerickguy, and JonC are the most reliable guys with inside info.

Slade?
Where there is smoke..  
Sect 146 : 1/10/2018 11:55 am : link
you have to wonder what they are smoking! Nobody knows anything except Gettleman and Giants and all this speculation is just talking out their asses. Keep spouting on every candidate and they are bound to be right at some point.
Hasn't Peppers hit on a few predictions?
