Matt Patricia may wind up being the guy for the Giants, as @PatLeonardNYDN projects, but it’s not over yet.

Or we get their leftovers.
He has been away from the Giants for how many year?  
robbieballs2003 : 1/10/2018 4:46 pm : link
And I still trust him and his connections more than any of our current beat writers.

I feel like the Giants served their fans leftovers for the past 5 years.

Not based on the way MG worded things.
Still makes no sense that DeFilippo was not interviewed, imo.

this doesn't sound good for Shurmur

Shurmur was a head coach with the Browns, and it is likely the Giants view him as a “tweener’’ — somewhere between a top-flight coordinator and a head coach.

With his ties to the organization I expect him to be targeted for either the OC or QB coach jobs.
Imagine the Giants hire Studesville...

this board would erupt.
I believe Schwartz and Garafolo

Valentine and Leonard are not what I call reliable reporters -- they are what I call "self-important" and prone to sell themselves into things real easy

it is not over regardless unless the Giants want Wilks. The rest technically cannot agree to anything and honestly with multiple teams competing for their services why would they.

If more of the "candidates", for any of these openings, were free to sign on (not in playoffs now) then the ones in the playoffs would be more inclined to decide sooner. But,. Patricia, McDaniels and Shurmur are in the playoffs still. They are their own competition. Each one seems to also be leading candidates for different jobs. If the Giants were blown away by Wilks it would be done already. No reason to wait and no reason to do further interviews. But, clearly they have guys who are in the playoffs still rated higher and are playing the waiting game with other teams.
I think Patricia to the Giants

Is a done deal just waiting on the end of playoffs....... JUST A GUT FEELING......

Watch what Detroit does. If they start moving elsewhere, means they are out on Matty P.

is the only one to take seriously regarding the Giants. Earned his stripes the right way.
Playoff candidates  
Mdgiantsfan : 1/10/2018 7:30 pm : link
If after they meet this week and decide they like either of candidates who are still in the playoffs, are they unable to reach out and extend an offer until that candidate's team is eliminated?

I believe that's correct. Agents can discuss what a contract should look like and agree to terms but nothing can be signed or formally announced until that team's season is officially over.

And, the NFL frowns on teams making news that takes the spotlight away from playoff games. But if anything does happen, it always unofficially gets to the internet.

I wouldn't mind Patricia at all...
I trust MG

over all others, even if he's no longer on the Giants beat.
I think MG  
antdog24 : 1/10/2018 9:14 pm : link
still has good connections to the organization. He was the best beat writer we've had here.

If only I could divulge, but yes he still has very strong ties here and with several organizations because of those ties.
Patricia makes sense

he is a local guy, Raised by Belichick.
He just seems like a good fit.
