Offensive Coordinator and QB Coach

robbieballs2003 : 2/10/2018 8:13 am
Are we playing a game of cat and mouse? Am I mistaken that we haven't put in a request for interviewing Stefanski?

Could we possibly be waiting to see if someone's contract like Duce Staley's contract expires in the next few days? That is purely an assumption on my part. I don't know when his contract expires.

This staff already seems to keep everything quiet until it isn't quiet anymore. So, they may have put in a request that we don't know about yet but I wonder if they want to interview another candidate or 2 before committing to Stefanski.

Plus, we have a QB position open. Maybe there is the thought that DeFilippo may hire his own QB coach and hence leave Stefanski out of a job (very unlikely) and then he could be brought on here as a QB coach.

It is just a curious situation. I don't mind them taking their time but on the surface it seems they aren't doing much when something was expected after the Super Bowl.
We already have our OC in Shurmur

Once BB is named our HC.. don't you know this is the plan..... "SLADE"
I was surprised that we didn't hear anything pertaining to

Stefanski,particularly after DeFilippo was hired by the Vikings. There were no articles from the NYDN or NYP pertaining to this in Saturday's issues. Obviously Stefanski would fit perfectly under Shurmur so the question remains,did the Giants ask permission & did the Vikings grant it? I hope we hear something soon!

Our beat writers suck. That's the problem. They didn't break the Gettleman hire and they literally haven't broken a single coaching hire since Gettleman has been here. Pay attention to Rapoport, La Canfora & Alex Marvez. Those 3 have broken the hiring of our new GM, HC, DC and all of our position coaches.

Another thing is we haven't really heard about any of our hirings until they actually happened. We've hired 12 new coaches so far. The only interview we knew about was Bettcher and the only reason we knew that is because the interview took place at the Senior Bowl where basically every member of the media is at.

Sure points to Reese being the one with "loose lips" in the organization since we use to get quite a bit of info.
I find it humorous that some complain about the lack of leaks

The new Giants administration are doing a vastly superior job in keeping their inner activities and thoughts a secret. That is huge and should be applauded after years of intentionally (or unintentionally) signaling the teams inner thoughts to outside viewers. That includes the fans, the media and the competition.

To read that the beat reporters "suck" because they are not getting inside scoops is hilarious. I am not a fan of reporters in general, but in this case, I can't criticize them for lack of information. I would rather the beat reporters are silent for lack of inside information, than to make stuff up like Meyers does. Pathetic reporter.

For those complaining about lack of accurate information, i offer these thoughts. Would you rather have silence followed by solid organizational activities, or transparent intentions that are foiled by outsiders who preempt the team and deny the intended action? Think back to previous drafts and how the desires of the team were fairly well known and were ultimately denied because competitors knew the Giants intentions and took actions that hurt the Giants.

A little organizational secrecy is a good thing and make the team much more competitive for competing in coaching hires, free agency and the draft. Game days too.

I understand that we, as fans, want to know what is going on. We will. In time. Relax and enjoy.

Advanced information is a fan and media desire, not a "right" or an "entitlement". Until the team releases the information, we will suffer through opinion reported as fact or inside scoops, that may be pure fiction to generate media clicks and market share.

The Giants are finally being handled in a more competitive manner.

Absolutely this is a better way.

One of my biggest frustrations from past management was the transparency. It will be nice not having everyone know our pick 6 weeks before the draft
People praised Reese for cutting down on leaks  
an_idol_mind : 2/10/2018 9:44 am : link
early in his tenure, too. Personally, I think the best guys just haven't figured out who they can get good info from yet. A few years down the line, I would expect more reliable inside scoops.
I thStefanski has a contract thru 2018. Maybe is is waiting to see if

Sorry that was a fractured post

I think Stefanski is under contract thru 2018. Maybe he likes Minnesota and is waiting to see if he will be fired.
Not too worried about OC or QB coach right now. Ask me in 1 month  
Ivan15 : 2/10/2018 11:06 am : link
Craig Johnsonís resume suggests he has more experience to be a QB coach than a RB coach, plus OC experience.
