Candidates for head coach

The Giants Gal : 11/15/2019 10:27 am
Who are we thinking are some of the best possible candidates for the head coach position after the season? I've heard that Shurmur likely won't be fired in the middle of this season, but he probably will be once the season ends (unless there's some kind of miracle for our team). I've also heard that the franchise seems to only want people who are "part of the Giants family," but if they do look elsewhere, who do we think would be the best fit?

I, myself, have not familiarized myself enough with coaches to make any decisions, so I'm curious to see what the more experienced forum users are thinking.

Mr 17-42. Most likely we'll hear names like John Fox and Jason Garrett (assuming he gets fired). I'd rather the Giants go with someone like Gary Kubiak or Matt Rhule.

Thank you! This is what I get for not doing my research, lol. I guess if anyone wants to insert any updated opinions, this may be a useful thread.

Not to worry, whatever decision Mara makes will be the right decision, after all, he is the owner of this team and in his mind he always makes the right decision.
They'll just keep Shurmur.

That's been the rumblings and it'll probably just be true. And I'll probably do what was unthinkable to me at one time - slowly and steadily start losing interest in the Giants.

I'm not bullshitting - I can't watch this popgun style offense anymore. I hated McAdoo's offense for 4 years and now this. Like a kid playing Madden using the same play over and over.

I can only watch a shotgun inside handoff so many times.

I’ll take anyone that lines up under center close to half the time. I cant stand this shotgun bullshit anymore
With a new QB under center, going into year 2

For Jones’ sake, it has to be an offensive mind. My vote is for Greg Roman.
Forget About It!

Stop it with the HC change gossip. It ain't going to happen. Shurmur has three years left and Mara will not pay two HCs over the next three years. Maybe after 2021.
In a sane world, with 6 games left the jury should still be out.

The giants ‘should’ win at least 2 of the remaining games (Miami & Washington) ... and at 4-12 Mara would make excuses to keep him ... but if they lose all 6 ... come on ... his fate would be sealed.

I'm there. Years past I would raging right now. Why care?

ownership doesn't.

Will probably extend Shurmur before they get rid of him.
Just ask yourself....

What would the giants record be if they had gone without any head Coach? If not for a Tampa missed chip shot field goal, this 2019 giants record is really 1 and 9.

That is a flaw to think just because we have a young QB that we need an offensive coach.
A good defensive coach will be fine if he hires a good offensive coordinator and lets him do his job.
I honestly think Shurmur gets another year

This debacle will string out another 5 yrs at least, as I’m afraid it will.
