smshmth8690 : 1/12/2018 4:20 pm : link
comments like inpatient high school kids on social media. Ending the piece by writing 'eventually'. Give me a fucking break. They are trying to make The Giants look like they have no idea what they are doing, but Arizona, Detroit, and Indianapolis have their finger on the pulse of the NFL. If it is one of the 3 coordinators they are constantly mentioning, the Giants CAN'T FUCKING ANNOUNCE IT BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL PLAYING. So come up with an 'Unnamed dark horse'. I guess they forgot how to spell Cowher.

Jeff Fisher - most overrated coach of the last 10 years.
Tom Brady is the sleeper  
Alwaysblue22 : 1/12/2018 4:22 pm : link
He will announce his retirement after winning the Super Bowl and then bring his ball deflater with him to New York to begin his coaching career. Hey..John Elway bevame a GM..so why not?
How about

Which means he's all but off the list.
I hear you guys are looking for a coach  
Matt in SGS : 1/12/2018 5:13 pm : link
Let's check off the boxes

Coached in NY- yup
Has familiarity with the Mara family- bingo
Has won on a Super Bowl before- done it twice, y'all
Well rested- How does 26 years sound?
Head coaching experience- 2 years and that time in high school



I'd say a sleeper pick.

I may be in the minority but I wouldn’t mind him as Patricia’s DC.

I hope that Tom Quinn does get announced as the next HC.

It would be worth the 2 years of absolute miserable football to be here on BBI to experience it.

P.S.- Shurmur still the man according to my sources FWIW.


Would Shurmur come here over Arizona? Both teams do need QBs and so we might be in a better situation currently with Eli and Webb already on board. Oline should get straightened to some extent by DG this off-season and RB situation, as well. I guess we’ll find out a lot more on Monday.

So someone currently in the playoffs?

My guess... Dennis Allen, DC, New Orleans Saints. HC experience. Defensive coach. Hair not slicked back. Check, check and check.
the article basically reads that they have a candidate  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 1/12/2018 5:35 pm : link
if the others falls through. Doesn't sound like someone who has suddenly jumped to the head of the line at all.

Hope you're right about Shurmur
My hunch is that...

JM wants Sean Payton or Pat Shurmer and DG wants Steve Wilks or Matt Patricia...Everyone agrees on Belichik if he shakes loose.

If the Ravens fired Harbaugh then he would go to the top of the list for the Giants. Having said that there is almost no chance of that happening.
The Giants should bring back McAdoo

Funny, I read an article the other day that re-addressed the crossroads Harbaugh and the Ravens are at...gave the impression both parties could still part ways amicably.

I hope we are at last speaking to his agent for general inquiries...assuming that that is allowed...

Reale01 : 1/12/2018 7:04 pm : link
Belichick may return.

He is still trying to mend the fences in NE and is focused on the playoffs. Secrecy in NE is absolute - as it was when Parcells left. If BB comes to the Giants MP will coach the Pats. Otherwise, if BB stays MP will coach the Giants. Hard to give odds at this point. McDaniel will go elsewhere.

BB decision factors
Relationship with Kraft is worse than it was
Relationship with Brady is worse than it was
Brady is aging with no heir apparent
Would have to break in two new coordinators in 2018
May lose other coaches as well to Patricia and McDaniel
Has lost some key lieutenants in the front office
Giants job is open THIS year
Better to leave one year too early than one year too late

It would take a lot to win the belt from 2005, IMO. That was entirely FA-driven, but that's the craziest offseason in my book.

The Ravens would be really stupid to part ways with John Harbaugh. I think he's a better coach than his brother. He's excellent.

If he shook loose, I'd hire him in a second.

Won't happen, though.
Out of the top 4 candidates so far, Shurmer, Patricia, Wilks, and

If Giants lose out on all  
joeinpa : 1/13/2018 9:30 am : link
Three candidates because they chose to go elsewhere, there would be no way to spin it other than; the Giants settled.

But just like in trades, sometimes the ones you don t make are the best ones, maybe they would luck into the best guy despite themselves

But difficult to believe all three of those other teams would be preferred over the Giants.
