Who Do You Want for Our Next Coach and GM??

EricJ : 11/10/2019 6:55 pm
I am asking this because I am seeing a lot of people saying we need to immediately fire both, but not a single person has provided us with any realistic alternative. Meaning, a coach and GM who are available and who would be an upgrade vs who we have now.

So, now is your chance to make that John Mara decision and make your selection.

Who do you want? The choices cannot already be employed as a GM or head coach.

The next head coach should be hired with full autonomy to pick his staff, including the GM/personnel people. The three top guys on my list would be Josh McDaniels, Greg Roman, and Matt Rhule.

But even more critical than the names is that the structure must be overhauled.
Matt Rhule, PJ Fleck, Salah, Dabo, McDaniels. Maybe Richard's,

There needs to be one person owning the football decisions and fully accountable for the product on the field. Right now there is a GM playing a long game and a coach playing a short game. That is bad for the team. But this is not the way the Giants have ever done it, so I donít think it is something John Mara can process and consider.
Gettleman absolutely must go

No good head coach candidate is going to want to work with this guy having any influence at all. If you believe Mike Lombardi, McDaniels walked away from the Giants job because of Gettleman staying in the interview that the GM would retain personnel power.

Not yet anyways. If he blows the off-season next year he should be gone.

They need a new HC with the autonomy to bring in his own staff. Iíd prefer a defensive minded HC ó the DC from SF or maybe Ricard from Dallas. I wouldnít mind Roman out of Baltimore either.

idiotsavant : 11/10/2019 7:12 pm : link
I ranted about shanny Jr and the (then falcons) way of outside zone running that sets up roll out Qb designed runs and or roll out passes.

Neither Macadoo not the shurm believe in using line run action to improve line outcomes on pass plays.

That's the antiquated Achilles heel of the past so many years and broadly speaking where to start, even if not the shanny tree, at least a head coach and OC who get that concept broadly speaking.

Oakland has it because of the name, Gruden.

San Fran has made it work.

Are we sure Carrol has that choice when he was first there? I tend to doubt it.....he sorta made his mark as his tenure went on there.

Gase? F'ing joke to let a guy like that pick.

I guess the point is, only 4 of 32 teams are doing it.........

I don't agree with giving a HC that sorta power unless he's an established guy with a winning history.

Something like this makes sense.

Giving a young college guy full control I believe is not prudent at all.

The first issue is, guy feels the pressure and bolts back to college, you're screwed.

You need a solid GM. I think DG is the guy - and just because he picked the wrong coach - doesn't mean he can't pick the right one next time.

He probably looked at Shurmur as a guy who could go to school on what he did wrong in Cleveland and get it right this time..........obviously, that's not happening and he needs to be fired.

KC. Remember Reid got Dorsey fired in the power struggle over the roster. OíBrien won a power struggle in Houston. Kingsbury basically has de facto power in Arizona now over Keim with his shaky status and with being able to be going to ownership.

Bring in a franchise builder and let him make every call. If you let Gettleman hire someone else and run the draft with Chris Mara and make all personnel decisions itís pointless.

jcn56 : 11/10/2019 7:34 pm : link
If we've learned anything from watching the Giants over the past 8 years - it's that the GM/HC model is resulting in a lot of square peg/round hole situations. Even when they find talent, they don't use it effectively likely because the HC and GM aren't on the same page.

I wouldn't even go looking for the next big thing coordinator-wise. I'd find someone who's good at management (I think this is why so many people point to former ST coaches as highly effective HCs). Give them the keys, get them to hire coordinators, some scouts that know what kind of players they're looking for, and make them fully accountable. Here's 3 years - if you aren't making progress you're not getting a 4th (or seeing all 3 if you're moving backwards).

The football lifecycle is too short now - careers are relatively short, roster turnover is high in FA. There's no sense in having a GM up top looking after the long term health of the franchise anymore, because it can all change within a season or two. The stability offered by having a separated GM/HC structure has been offset by the instability introduced by miscommunication and lack of coordination on the vision.

You need that hierarchy and chain of command.

Where are these solid drafts coming from? If they happened, and these rookie and 1 year vet players are solid, why the hell is the team as bad as it is?

You guys are going on paper, not results. So far, Gettleman's results have been awful, with his former strength of selecting FAs being even worse than his drafts. Preserving this hierarchy just means more losing.

You just don't understand my thoughts on this. It is easy to say fire the coach or GM but you need a plan. I mean, we get on the team's leadership for making it seem like they dont have a plan for the team. So, if you are going to fire these two guys, I want to hear your plan first.

Surely you have one right? Which two guys are out there right now who will do a better job if we fire both before this Sunday?

And have an OC that removes runs from the shotgun from the playbook. Insert play action passes and pitches to the running back. Learn to execute screen plays. Lean to tackle. Go back to a 4-3. Actually have a fullback that can block.

Stop having cornerbacks ten yards off the line of scrimmage. Draft in the first two rounds competent OL ,DE & LB players.

I'm not having any difficulty, you just can't accept my answer. My plan would be contact Bill Belichick's people and to offer him whatever the hell he wants to get him here. If it costs draft compensation to NE, so be it. Make it happen. Try everything. This could be Brady's last year and I think Bill likes our QB - it's not nearly the longshot people think it is in the year 2019.

If that doesn't work? Go outside the comforts of this organization. Hire a consultant, that isn't a former employee, to help you identify somebody like Bill and give him the keys to build the whole thing. A single chain of command that is responsible for all hires and is solely accountable for the teams success and failures. Change the way this organization is structured because the insulated personnel vs coaching departments is antiquated and outdated.

That's silly - you think that doesn't apply to a GM, who at the end of the day decides who to keep and who to cut?

If anything - removing that plausible deniability for poor performance means the HC/GM combo is more likely to cut an underperforming player because he's got nobody to blame but himself.

And I seriously doubt they get rid of DG no matter how bad this team is. He took over a 3-13 roster and found what looks to be a franchise QB. He is safe for now. You have to keep in mind that the Giants do not fire GM's very often. Reese was the first in nearly 40 something years.

Head Coach- I feel like I'm going to be in the minority with this but I'd love Jim Harbaugh. He turned SF around and took them to a SB. He is a CEO type of head coach- not some clown like Shurmur or McAdoo whos head is too far up his own ass to realize there is more to the team than just offense/QB play.

Bill has a history of being an opportunist and being a HC somewhere else hasn't stopped him from jumping ship in the past. If he likes Jones and Brady goes, this is a better opportunity. It's not as much of a longshot as people think.

I am still challenging the arm chair owners out there who are quick to fire these two guys without naming REALISTIC replacements who can take this team and turn it into a winner.

Unfortunately, the system is so etched in how the league has worked that it's just assumed to be the right way to do business.

If I were a coach, I wouldn't want someone else picking my players. College coaches pick their own players. They don't have the AD do it...

I'd let the HC be the GM, pick his capoligist, pick his scouting director, scouts etc.

I'm not qualified to give you names. There are people out there that are though. Gettleman/Shurmur ain't it, I know that much.



I agree that Shurmur is not the guy. For me, the jury is still out on Gettleman.

I am still challenging the arm chair owners out there who are quick to fire these two guys without naming REALISTIC replacements who can take this team and turn it into a winner.

I am also okay with the rest of your ideas but again no names are attached.


My "realistic" choice would be Matt Rhule if I'm forced to give you one. He has NFL experience and has built up two programs in Temple and Baylor that were in really ugly spots before his arrival. He also turned down the Jets because they wouldn't allow him to pick his staff - that shows balls as well as the desire to have control over his own success or failure. From my perspective, that shows that he gets it to a degree.

But again, nobody on this board has the kind of information at their disposal to give you a real answer. We don't have references or contacts in the industry. I have absolutely no idea who the impressive front office assistants are or who the faceless assistant coach that can be the next John Harbaugh. You're asking fans on a message board to identify a guy for a position that is intangible driven. We don't have the resources to do that but the Giants and outside consulting firms do.
I have no interest in changing the GM whatsoever right now

This team was a trainwreck when he inherited it. It was always going to be an uphill battle to get it turned around. I'm still confident in his ability to improve this roster over time and build a contender.

Too many examples of that blowing up in the organizationís face.

It only works if you strike gold with someone like BB or Parcells. Huge gamble.

Philly tried it and it probably wouldíve wrecked their franchise if GM didnít stick around.
I don't understand  
AcesUp : 11/10/2019 8:30 pm : link
how DG gets a pass while Shurmur needs to be fired tomorrow. They're equally responsible for us flatlining. DG completely botched his first and very critical offseason. He's been wasteful with resources, doesn't respect positional value and has missed out on opportunities to accelarate this rebuild. He's drafted well (we think, these guys lose their shine as they get into year 2, 3 etc) however it been from an adventageous position. He's done almost everything else poorly. He should be responsible for Shurmur's failures but he's not because of the dumbass way this organization is structured. So I guess he gets a pass on the coach.
It doesn't need to be a dual role  
AcesUp : 11/10/2019 8:32 pm : link
But there should be one guy calling the shots and hiring the other. I personally would go with the personnel guy but if they identify the coach as the CEO, that works but they need a single chain.

Donít Want Gettleman  
Samiam : 11/10/2019 10:25 pm : link
I donít agree that heís drafted well; he just drafted better than Reese. Leaving aside players that could have helped instead of Barkley and Jones, he gave up a 3rd for Beal who came with a bad shoulder and a 3rd plus another pick for Leonard Williams who will cost major money and is not that good. These 3rds are picks around the top 70. In addition, are you convinced that Hernandez or Hill or Baker or Carter or the Xman are the real things. Better than Reese picks but thatís not saying much.

Last, if you get rid of the coach, get rid of the GM. They made that mistake getting rid of Coughlin

Point is that Kubiak has an advantage over all of these names: he has a Super Bowl to his name.
A GM with ZERO ties to the franchise

No past history with them, no past history with the methods the franchises uses. Brand new, no allegiances to anyone in the building. And allow this person to rebuild the entire front office any way he sees fit. From people to methods.

As for coach, whoever fits what the GM wants, is looking for, and program he is trying to implement.

All good thoughts.

But we all know who is warming up in the Giants Way bullpen to relieve Gettleman - Kevin Abrams...

he has a Wade Phillips-type vet running the other side of the team. I want the HC focusing on the entire team and game, not just one aspect of it.
Reality is Mara will bring in Ernie again to "consult"

His drafts have been pretty good. Considering he's held the 2nd and 6th slots, you'd expect them to be.

Gettleman has something like 7. I forget, but I'm sure he will remind us all at some point.

Well I suppose it is easier to find a good player when you draft that high, but there have been plenty of picks in this league in the top 10 that turned into a bust.

We even have people now (after the past two weeks) hinting at Barkley being a bust.

I do think part of our problem at offensive line is coaching. There is no way we can go all of these years without finding ONE guy who can play on the line (sans Hernandez). Something else has to be happening here.
