Former Cowboys OC Linehan to interview with NYG

Big Rick in FL : 1/17/2020 8:42 am
As well as the Panthers & Jaguars this weekend. Doesn't seem like it's for the OC job just a spot on the staff.

He's worked with Garrett a bunch both in Miami and Dallas. Wonder if this has anything to do with Garrett.

Garrett as OC with Callahan as line coach  
joe48 : 1/17/2020 9:56 am : link
No Linehan. Actually, I like Callahan and no Garrett. Garrett has experience and nothing else. Never won anything in Dallas with talented teams. I have no idea who else is being looked at. I wonder how much input Judge has on the Garrett situation.

16th in passing

I think it's pretty clear that Garrett has already been hired as OC.

Per public statements and every single beat writer who has touched upon this question, Judge has 100% control of his staff decisions.

Be that he is coming in as the passing coordinator and maybe Garrettís successor if he gets a head coaching gig next year,

Having experienced options / line of succession would be nice. Keeps things consistent if they are successful and lose the OC. If it doesn't work they will probably be fired anyway. But you may also attract the Callahans/Linehans of the world seeing a chance to move up in the organization and potentially out

@toddarcher
He oversaw Tony Romoís best season in 2014 and Dak Prescott won Rookie of the Year with him in 2016. Plus DeMarco Murray and Ezekiel Elliott won three rushing titles. Didnít end well in Dallas but he was better than folks care to admit.

Can we just trade offensive lines as well....can't do that? That certainly helps the cause.

That both Linehan and Callahan would take pretty significant demotions to coach an abysmal Giants team.

If you want to stay employed in the NFL, then sometimes you have to take whatís offered.

This all is starting to appear like Garrettís influence. Iím wondering why thereís been no announcement of him as OC? They announced Graham quickly, without hiring his whole staff?!

Ahhhh, ok. Seeing all the traffic on Graham, I assumed it was announced. I guess theyíll announce the whole staff at once then.
He was a horrible OC  
5BowlsSoon : 1/17/2020 10:36 am : link
Jerry had to get rid of him Because his offenses were so,predictable and bland. You talk about a guy who would throw a 5 yard pass on 3rd and 7.....he was the master of that. Many Dallas fans hated the guy as their OC.

Donít know if he has other strengths though.

So I could see the Giants trying to make it work. The LB coach of that team was former Vikings DC George Edwards. I would not be surprised if the Giants interviewed him for some role now that he is no longer under contract. Maybe as a pass rush specialist if the Giants want to give Antonio Pierce LB coach job.

May be onto something. Tom Coughlin didnít shake Maraís hand once, and look what happened to him.

I donít think Garret wants the OC job with the Giants. I think he is using his influence with Mara to get his buddies a job.

maybe you need to take some deep breaths. Eric, who knows more than most, is pretty confident JG is our OC. Linehan might be on the staff, but most likely not as OC.

JG did a pretty darn good job as OC and he did it with a RB named Marion.

I actually had that thought too, but Iím sure it canít be right. I canít believe JG would come here to be interviewed knowing he didnít want the job and he is only doing it for his buddy. That doesnít make sense.

I think everything will be announced all at once. One thing BBI will have to get used to have a BB disciple as a head coach is that information will not be freely shared or leaked until he deems acceptable.

Yep sounds like heís in Carolina now. I would hope they could have wrapped him up sooner if Garrett and Callahan were already on board...

Honestly all I want is Callahan. If they also bring in Garrett and/or Linehan it is just icing on the cake. I still find it amazing that Callahan is available.

Downfall of Shurmur besides in game mgmt, poor attention to defense with no identity .....was the coaching staff did not teach kids fundamentals. They making sames mistakes week 15 from training camp. Judge has good crop of available OC coaches. I was not happy with Def choice (worst def in league 2019, belichek groupie) so Giants need cut the crap and hire the best available OC probally Garrett before Panthers / Browns outbid for thier services. Part of a great coach is positive friction with staff ...Parcells HOF coach but Ron Earhardt OC (accomplished ex coach) and Belechik were part of the engine that fueled Super bowls!

Carolina hired Joe Brady to be OC. Why would Garrett take anything there? In Cleveland he has no real ties to Stefanski.
