Giants brass convinced Shurmur right man for job

Giants brass convinced Shurmur right man for job”

As he completed his opening remarks behind the lectern, for the first time as the 18th head coach in Giants history, the lights in the team auditorium suddenly went out.

However, Manning, 37, has seemingly been offered an olive branch by the new man in charge.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning in action during the first half against the Los Angeles Rams at MetLife Stadium on November 5, 2017. "Certainly, that was a positive".

"We used to have to say in Philadelphia and Minnesota that it's not the plays, it's the players", Shurmur said.

Anyone who has watched this team knows that all the blame for 3-13 or five of the past six years ending without a playoff appearance doesn't fall all on Manning. "He looked fit. He was throwing the ball well".

Gettleman, who was still in Mobile, Ala. scouting the Senior Bowl on Friday, said via conference call that Shurmur's interview was "outstanding". "First of all, we're going to sit down and talk about, 'Here's the things that I like from the last couple of years.' We'll try to employ those, along with the things that we believe in strongly".

The Giants own the second overall pick in April's draft.

"I don't think there was a lack of maturity with earlier teams, with earlier leadership", said Tisch.

Even when Manning was put back under center by interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo, there were lingering concerns about the team's commitment to him and his desire to return after feeling betrayed.

"I wasn't looking for flash, " Mara said.

That needs to be rectified immediately, and Shurmur intends to do it by establishing the right way to do things from the get-go of his tenure. He will have to get Beckham Jr. on his side while the star receiver awaits a new contract. He will play 2018 on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal.

Speaking generally about his coaching philosophy, Shurmur said he'll have "zero tolerance" for players who don't compete or show respect for the team. I saw him throw this summer in person. "They screamed at me in Carolina, 'You got to draft a tackle, you got to draft a tackle.' If the value's not there when you pick, you're gonna make a mistake".

"In that draft, people are going to call me insane, the only guy I would have taken over Kelvin Benjamin, who we took, was Odell, " Gettleman said. I know that Eli is very excited and very optimistic to start working with Pat and certainly Pat is very optimistic about spending time with Eli and being a head coach.

"It's such a tough job, especially coming off a season that we came off of with all the issues in the locker room and everything else", Mara said. "I've said before many times we want him to be a Giant". I hadn't really done enough film work by that point because of the running around that we were doing where I had come to the same conclusion, which I have (since) come to. "I have a lot of confidence that will work out well, but we'll see". We're going to find out if some of those reasons were behind the scenes and get them fixed.
