RV SNY: Patriots DC Matt Patricia can be considered the favorite
“had his supporters in the Giants organization from the start of the search. He also had some detractors who felt he was a product of Bill Belichick's defensive influence. A few worried about the famous picture of him in a T-shirt with a picture of Roger Goodell wearing a clown nose, but it doesn't seem like John Mara is worried about that. According to one source, his reported marriage with the Lions definitely isn't a "done deal" and the Giants are in the mix. Are signs pointing his way? Some are, but things change fast. He can safely be considered the favorite for now.”

Sources say #Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur remains very much in the mix for Arizona, Detroit, New York Giants head coaching jobs. He also interviewed with Chicago, which hired Matt Nagy on Monday.

Matt Patricia as anyone on BBI does.

Why do I have a bad feeling that  
Jay on the Island : 1/10/2018 3:14 pm : link
the Patricia supporters are only John and Chris Mara? We all know John Mara has a close relationship with Belichick and I am worried that he is the one pushing hardest for Patricia because of Belichick's endorsement.

Give me Shurmur with a good DC and I would be happy.
So what we've gathered from this is... nobody knows what's going on.

Myers: Gettleman and Patricia “hit it off”  
Defenderdawg : 1/10/2018 3:17 pm : link
“Patricia and Gettleman met for the first time on Friday. Gettleman had some ground to make up on the Lions, whose GM Bob Quinn overlapped 13 years with Patricia in New England. They are good friends, but Gettleman and Patricia come from similar family backgrounds and hit it off...”

Sounds like they read our opinions and concerns and then wrote a little piece about him.

Its Wilks then Shurmur for us. Nobody wants McDaniels but maybe the Titans. Lions/Patricia is basically the 9ers/Shanahan situation from last year. Indy wants Wilks. Arizona wants Wilks.

Wilks is the next domino to fall. Thats who everyone is waiting for right now. We'll know Friday. Thursday evening at the earliest.

The Giants are keeping their info in house - which I'm happy about.

It's pretty clear they're not letting anything leak and all of these guys are just taking stabs at the wind.

Thankfully it seems that Accorsi's influence isn't too prominent after all.

of related. Does anyone know whether Spags was included when Gettleman told the coaches they were free to find another job?

I'm not so sure about that.

Right now, it seems like they might be purposefully leaking their interest to someone who they cannot even off-the-record directly offer the position to, and who it looks like might be highly desired elsewhere.

Think about it like this. If the Giants really want Patricia and they see the media reports saying that DET wants him and it's basically a done deal, how else are they supposed to get word to him of their interest? If they contact his agent directly they risk trouble, particularly depending on who his agent is and who else the agent is representing. So leak their interest to the media.

Just a complete guess on my part, but I truly believe the NYG front office knows how to strategically leak info they want out there and I'm hoping that's what this is all about.

What are you talking about?? They have been leaking info only to Slade!
