Mare in the middle of Judge and Gettleman getting mad that he keeps spending more money on coaches.

Training camp used to be 6 weeks, now its 19 days. What to do?: Double up on the teachers.
Good Catch GFAN52

What must he be selling the coaches, many of them high level in their own right, to come to a plus where they are redundant if not superfluous.

My first thought was that the theoretical number of coaches is one per player, but no it isn't, because you still would need quality control people, etc.

Given the vast sums of money NFL teams receive and the potential increase in franchise value for a successful team, I think coaching staffs may expand dramatically. An extra coach can give you a small edge, which can win you a game over the season, which can be the difference between playoffs or not, which can...
Giants have a coach

Very astute. Makes perfect sense. Thanks for posting.

Interesting thought. Would the same hold true in the everyday work place?

The adage of too many cooks in the kitchen can be challenging. While the coaching hires all appear to have the whole six degrees of separation from the BB or Saban tree, do they all speak with one or a consistent voice?
Giants on the high side of what has traditionally  
gmenrule-va : 4/8/2021 11:10 am : link
been a mid-teens number of coaches. From the attached article it says "With Blount now in the picture, the Giants’ coaching staff is up to 22 members in total. They had 20 members in 2020 and 17 members under Pat Shurmur in 2019."

I am good with this.

If not, they'll be gone. I don't think that's a reason not to have a sufficiently large staff. It's commonplace at the higher levels of college sports.
I think this is outstanding

I remember reading a column a few years ago asking why teams didn't just hire more coaches to take advantage of the absence of a rule dictating that you can't.
