 Giants mock draft 2018 roundup.   |   NFL mock draft 2018 1.4: All 32 picks.
Mar 23 One year ago, Jason Pierre-Paul was considered to be a cornerstone of the Giants' future. A combination of many factors led to Pierre-Paul trade.

Last year, the Giants asked Dwayne Harris to take a pay cut coming off a Pro Bowl season. This year, the Giants simply cut the veteran wide receiver/kick returner coming off an injury.

Odell Beckham could be next Giants player traded in wake of Jason Pierre-Paul deal. by trading Pierre-Paul, Gettleman has brought himself to a crossroads: He is now at the juncture where he must decide to pay Odell - and he freed up cap space to do that with the JPP move - or trade him to a team that will.

Mar 20 Monday turned out to be a busy day for the Giants, who added players to fill slots on the depth chart. In addition to landing wide receiver Cody Latimer, they signed Josh Mauro, a defensive end from the Cardinals, re-signed defensive end Kerry Wynn and signed cornerback B.W. Webb.

Giants can't let Davis Webb stop them from drafting a QB with the No. 2 pick. The vast majority of quarterbacks taken in the third round do not become impact players in the NFL.

Mar 19 That shadow next to Giants quarterback Eli Manning goes by the name of Davis Webb. During his rookie season as the No. 3 quarterback for the Giants, Webb tried to absorb as much information as he could from Manning.

The Giants' depth chart at the end of the 2017 season hardly resembled the pecking order when the season began. A rash of injuries will have that effect on a team. But the Giants' depth chart today already looks much different than the one on New Year's Eve, and more changes still are coming.

How the Giants could benefit from the Jets-Colts trade. If the Giants were to make a trade with a quarterback-needy team, their No. 2 pick now becomes even more attractive given the Jets decision to move up. If the Giants were to trade, what could they Giants get? And who would be the trade partner? There are two options.

Mar 17 When the Giants shelled out $62 million to land left tackle Nate Solder, they did so in an attempt to give a quick fix to an offensive line that was a disaster last season. However, Solder insisted it is going to take more than just his big payday to fix the offensive line.

The Giants continued reshaping their roster by signing a former AFC South player on both sides of the ball. The new Giants are offensive lineman Patrick Omameh, who played the last two seasons for Jacksonville, and defensive back Curtis Riley, who was previously with the Tennessee Titans.

Former Giants
Justin Pugh has found a new home. Pugh lasted through the initial signing flurry, but did not stay without a team for long, agreeing to terms Friday night with the Cardinals.

Mar 16 The Giants may have a new left tackle but Ereck Flowers is still going to be a part of the offensive line. The Giants made the signing of Nate Solder official Thursday evening and GM Dave Gettleman said in the team's press release that Flowers, the left tackle the past three seasons, will be shifting to right tackle at the start of training camp.
The Giants spent Thursday finalizing the acquisitions of free agents Nate Solder and Patrick Omameh - from the Patriots and Jaguars, respectively. The two new faces figure to be lined up next to each other on the left side of the line at the start of next season.

Mar 15 Dave Gettleman never has hidden his affinity for offensive linemen - or, as he likes to call them, "hog mollies," in honor of the gritty fish species - so it's no surprise the Giants general manager's early personnel moves have revolved around the big men in the trenches.
Gettleman absolutely overpaid for Nate Solder (four years, $62 million) in making him the highest-paid left tackle in the game, but try telling that to Eli Manning. Who maybe would have thrown in a couple of hundred thousand dollars if it meant sealing the deal.
Solder will become the foundation of their offensive line, but the Giants were a perfect match in the part of Solder's life that is way more important than football: His 2-year-old son Hudson was diagnosed in October of 2015 with bilateral Wilms tumors, a type of kidney cancer.

The Giants have acquired linebacker Alec Ogletree from the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a pair of choices in the 2018 NFL draft. The draft selections are the Giants' compensatory choice in the fourth round (No. 135 overall) and their sixth-round pick (No. 176). The trade leaves the Giants with five selections in the 2018 draft - one in each of the first five rounds.

Jonathan Stewart will be given the opportunity to compete for playing time at running back with the Giants, as, for the first time in his long NFL career, he transitions to a new team. The veteran also understands there is another reason why the Giants signed him.

Dave Gettleman seems to have made it a priority to add veteran leadership into a locker room that was left in tatters during a 3-13 season, with an eye on winning now. Here's a look at grades for each of the Giants' marquee moves over the last week as the NFL offseason kicks into high gear.

Former Giants
Weston Richburg became significantly richer this week. After playing his first four seasons on a modest rookie deal with the Giants, the five-year contract the interior offensive lineman signed with the 49ers is worth up to $47.5 million, with $16.5 million fully guaranteed.

Mar 14 Pat Shurmur's ideal running back situation is to have a committee with two lead horses. The Giants added to their stable Tuesday by signing veteran Jonathan Stewart with a two-year, $6.9 million deal, with $2.95 million guaranteed, according to
Stewart reunites with Mike Shula, the Giants' new offensive coordinator who ran his Panthers offense from 2013-17. Stewart is a downhill back who has scored 16 total touchdowns the past two seasons.
The Giants need insurance at running back, with Wayne Gallman the only back on the roster assured of a spot on the team. Their top rusher in 2017, Orleans Darkwa, is an unrestricted free agent.

Davis Webb behind the scenes: How Giants' QB of future plans to 'knock it out of the park'. The Giants hold the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft and there will be at least three highly regarded quarterbacks available. What the new decision-makers think of Webb's future will be revealed through what they do at the top of the draft.

Mar 12 Tom Coughlin swooped in and signed the Giants' top offseason target, as offensive guard Andrew Norwell agreed to a long-term deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday.
They did fortify their depth by re-signing Jon Halapio, who had been an exclusive rights free agent. Halapio started the last six games, and when he was on the field, the running game perked up, just as it did when D.J. Fluker was in the lineup and Brett Jones moved in as the starting center.

Hall of Fame receiver and Odell Beckham's mentor Cris Carter said he was "disgusted" with the Giants star on Monday morning, days after a video surfaced of him in bed with a French model, a brown cigarette and a white powder.

Geno Smith deserves another chance to be an NFL team's franchise quarterback. He did everything right with the Giants last season. He was a hard worker, a good teammate and a productive passer in his lone Week 13 start in Oakland.

Mar 11 The Giants have released former All-Pro cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after the two sides were unable to agree on a reduction in his salary for the 2018 season.
The Giants asked him to take a significant cut in pay from the $6.48 million salary he was scheduled to receive in 2018. Rodgers-Cromartie balked at that and his contract was terminated.
Rodgers-Cromartie was ranked as the No. 58 cornerback in the NFL in 2018 by Pro Football Focus. That placed him third on the Giants behind free agent Ross Cockrell, who suddenly is a bigger target, and Janoris Jenkins.
Rodgers-Cromartie became the second Giant released in as many days after punter Brad Wing was cut on Saturday, saving the Giants just over $1 million against the 2018 cap.

Mar 9 The Giants ask Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to take pay cut. It's not completely clear whether the Giants want Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to be a cornerback or a safety next season, but one thing is clear: They want him to be paid a lot less.

The Giants cut Brad Wing on Saturday, ending his three-year tenure that began with a trade from the Steelers in September 2015. While the move saves $1.025 million against the salary cap, it was based on performance and not finances.

Giants' Justin Pugh eager to test the market in free agency Pugh will be a free agent on Wednesday, one of 19 players who were on the Giants' roster last season and about to hit the market.

Mar 8 The Giants landed one of the NFL's leading tacklers from the past five seasons on Wednesday, sending a fourth- and sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft to Los Angeles for Alec Ogletree and a seventh-round choice in the 2019 draft.
You can debate whether Alec Ogletree, acquired from the Rams on Wednesday along with a 2019 seventh-round pick for fourth- and sixth-round picks this year, is a $10 million gamble worth taking. He does not come without risk - the Rams discarding him after a subpar 2017.

The Giants are expected to tender Brett Jones, set to be a restricted free agent, and early indications are he will be the favorite to retain the starting center job he held for most of the 2017 season.

Mar 7 Giants O-line rebuild could include huge free agent splash. Those who look at the sorry state of the offensive line and complain the Giants are guilty of negligence need to get the facts straight.

Giant Steps - A behind-the-scenes look at the team's work at the combine. It included sitting in on player interviews, accompanying scouts and coaches as they watched workouts, and spending time inside the team suite.

If there is anyone who knows what type of quarterback head coach Pat Shurmur values most, it is his son, Kyle, the rising senior starting quarterback of the Vanderbilt Commodores of the SEC.

Mar 6 The NFL is a copycat league, and the Giants need look no further than their own division to see that the Eagles leveraged one of the NFL's premier offensive lines into a Super Bowl championship this year.

Eli Manning and Brandon Marshall surfaced from the bubble of the NFL offseason ... at the Rutgers indoor practice bubble in Piscataway. The two Giants stars, both of whom live locally, threw Monday at Rutgers and posed for a picture posted to social media by former Scarlet Knights running back Savon Huggins.

Former Giants
Antrel Rolle would not move his friend Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from cornerback to safety. He understands the logic, believes it can work but, if he had a voice in the decision.

Mar 5 From a week's worth of back-channel conversations here are six observations from the 2018 NFL Combine that connect to Big Blue's draft intentions, especially at the top.

Mar 4 Giants' search for QB of the future may let Eli Manning extend career. It is not just the Giants who are looking at the guys who are considered to be the three best quarterbacks - Darnold, Rosen, Allen - and find things to worry about.
Inside Giants formal meetings with Sam Darnold, Josh Allen - How they answered tough questions. For Darnold, why 22 turnovers (13 interceptions, nine lost fumbles) in 2017? For Allen, why a 56 percent completion rate?

The Giants are hoping a change of scenery can help Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. No, Big Blue isn't trading the defensive back but will reportedly shift him from cornerback to safety next season.
Landon Collins is established as the strong safety, but Darian Thompson struggled in 2017 at free safety, and that is where Rodgers-Cromartie will compete for a starting spot.

Mar 3 Giants already 'have their future quarterback'. Davis Webb is set up to succeed, but because the Giants hold the No. 2 pick - their highest since 1981 - the temptation exists to draft a top quarterback to leapfrog Webb.
If the Giants do in fact draft a quarterback this year, the writing on the wall says that the No. 2 pick initially will have to be a backup. Both general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur have made it clear that they believe Eli Manning has "years" left as a starter in the NFL.

Mar 1 Dave Gettleman is the new Giants general manager, not a royal subject. But he might soon be in position to demand a king's ransom. The Giants hold the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft and already have a borderline Hall of Fame quarterback plus a second-year pro (Davis Webb) who could take over for Eli Manning one day.
Dave Gettleman went old school in describing the assortment of quarterbacks available in this year's draft. "All shapes and sizes, all flavors. This is like Howard Johnson's back in the day," said the Giants' general manager. It is also a highly unpredictable group, one that may be more subject to fluctuations in evaluation - and performance once their NFL careers unfold.

Odell Beckham Jr. is rehabbing from ankle surgery in California but does stop in at the Giants' facility for medical checkups. New head coach Pat Shurmur says he's developed what he described as "a relationship that's pretty sound" with the star wide receiver.

Can Odell Beckham, Giants see eye-to-eye on $20M salary and 0 preseason snaps? The Giants and Odell Beckham Jr. might have to meet in the middle twice before kickoff to the 2018 season. If the issue of Beckham's contract extension wasn't enough off a potential source of drama in their relationship, preseason game reps also will enter the picture.

Feb 28 General manager Dave Gettleman and new head coach Pat Shurmur doused any doubt the New York Giants are sticking with Eli Manning in 2018. "We believe that Eli Manning has got years left as a starting quarterback in this league," Shurmur said.

The Giants have established that they want to move forward with Eli Manning at quarterback. That was last month's news. These next two months will be about determining who eventually succeeds him at the most important position on the field.

Feb 27 The NFL Draft is seven rounds, not only one, and so the Giants will be studying all sorts of prospects this week at the scouting combine and not merely focusing on who they might take with the No. 2 overall pick.

The Giants have the No. 2 overall selection with a bevy of highly touted quarterbacks available. The big decision for Gettleman, in his first draft as general manager of the Giants, will be whether he wants to invest that high pick in a potential quarterback of the future.

John Mara told us after his season from hell ended that he expected the Giants to be good again in 2018. The quickest way to be good would mean drafting running back Saquon Barkley, teaming him with Odell Beckham Jr. and helping Eli Manning feel forever young at age 37.

Feb 24 The Giants have been awarded a fourth-round compensatory pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. A total of 32 compensatory selections were awarded to 15 teams. The Giants are one of five teams to get a fourth-round compensatory pick.

Feb 20 Special Report - Giant fans might point to 1979, when the Giants picked quarterback Phil Simms in the first round of the draft as the best day in franchise history. Others might move ahead just a couple of years to 1981, when they chose linebacker Lawrence Taylor as their first round selection. Still others might select 2004, when the trade winds struck and the Giants came away with quarterback Eli Manning in the first round. But the worst day in the Giants' first-round drafting history?

Feb 18 The top five needs the Giants GM must address in these next few months to get the franchise back on track.

Feb 15 Giants coach Pat Shurmur's staff is complete. The Giants officially announced the 16-member staff on Thursday afternoon.
Pat Shurmur's first coaching staff with the Giants includes three new coordinators but also enough familiar faces to conclude the new head coach was open-minded about those who remained.
Pat Shurmur was named the 18th head coach in franchise history following his team's playoff run. Here are some notes and takeaways from his first staff with the Giants.
The Giants publicly announced their coaching staff on Thursday. Behind closed doors, though, many of them have been grinding away for the better part of the past three weeks.
Giants coach Pat Shurmur can turn his attention to the Scouting Combine that begins in two weeks in Indianapolis now that his coaching staff is complete.

Bobby Hart says he was injured, never quit on Giants.

Feb 14 Pat Shurmur finally rounded out his coaching staff on Tuesday by hiring Mike Shula as the Giants' new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Shula, 52, is the son of the NFL's all-time winningest coach, Don Shula.
Mike Shula spent the past five years developing a system to incorporate the fast feet and strong right arm of Cam Newton. For his next task, Shula will work with polished but slow-footed Eli Manning and, most likely, a hot-shot rookie quarterback prospect.
Since 1996, Shula has been offensive coordinator for the Buccaneers and Panthers, quarterbacks coach for the Dolphins and Jaguars, and head coach at the University of Alabama. With the Giants, he will work under Pat Shurmur, who will call plays on gameday with input from Shula as he focuses on coaching quarterbacks.

Feb 13 One year ago, the Giants staged their version of a Valentine's Day massacre, cutting popular receiver Victor Cruz and starting running back Rashad Jennings. The Giants have already undergone tremendous upheaval, as for the first time in 39 years they will enter a season with a new head coach and new general manager. Reshaping the roster is the next order of business.

Giants' needs on offense vs. defense. Three Giants writers discuss where the Giants need to improve the most to compete in 2018. Do the Giants need to improve more on offense or defense to get back on track in 2018?

Jerry Reese didn't make any significant upgrades to the offensive line last offseason and that's a big part of the reason he's now referred to as "former Giants general manager Jerry Reese."

Paul Perkins entered his second NFL season as one of 32 starting running backs and finished it with fewer rushes than 95 other ball-carriers. It was a strange 2017 for Perkins, who was handed the starting job in the spring when the Giants cut veteran three-year starter Rashad Jennings to save money against the salary cap.

Former Giants
Rashad Jennings: Giants' talent plus Pat Shurmur's leadership could spark quick turnaround.

Feb 11 Pat Shurmur wanted to interview and, presumably, hire Kevin Stefanski as the Giants' new offensive coordinator, but the Vikings denied permission Saturday, ESPN reported. That means Stefanski stays in Minnesota, and Shurmur will likely next turn to Duce Staley, coming off a glorious Super Bowl victory as the Eagles' running backs coach.

Former Giants GM candidate Louis Riddick explains how he'd handle Odell Beckham's contract. Riddick doesn't think the Giants should wait to give Beckham an extension.

Feb 7 Malcolm Butler is saying goodbye to the Patriots, hello to free agency and "trust me" to NFL general managers. Is New England-sounding Giants general manager Dave Gettleman listening?
Butler is a good cornerback, but had some lulls in 2017 possibly due to unhappiness over the one-year, $3.9 million contract he was playing under.

2018 NFC East QB breakdown: Where do Giants rank? Each team's big question.

Feb 6 The Giants hired Deshea Townsend as assistant defensive backs coach and Ben Wilkerson as assistant offensive line coach on Monday afternoon.

One way for the Giants to quickly improve is to steal some of the top players from the Eagles and Patriots, who just met in Super Bowl LII.

Feb 5 The Giants only need to look to the Eagles for motivation, as Philadelphia went 7-9 in 2016 before going 13-3 this season en route to a title. How can the Giants duplicate that turnaround? Here are six things that need to happen.

Football fans who tuned in to watch Super Bowl LII between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles were treated to quite the performance during the third quarter of Sunday's game. Beckham and Eli Manning stole the show in one of the most entertaining commercials.

Eagles, Foles rally to stun Patriots in Super Bowl LII. This time, the New England Patriots were the victims of a Super Bowl comeback.

The Patriots managed to lose while Tom Brady threw for a Super Bowl-record 505 yards. But maybe with Malcolm Butler on the field - the whole game, half the game, a third of the game, however long - Brady wouldn't have had to win the biggest shootout in Super Bowl history.Eli

Feb 4 Eli Manning recalls Giants run to Super Bowl XLII. That team was one of the most successful and memorable in the 93-year history of the franchise, one that delivered its seventh championship and was honored on its 10th anniversary during the 2017 season.  |  More

Feb 3 Eli Manning called the Giants' decision to want him back for the 2018 season "a starting point." In reality, it's the start of the end. Manning has two years left on his contract with the Giants. He said he has no interest in initiating a departure from the team by waiving his no-trade clause.

Now that the new regime of Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur has endorsed him as the Giants' quarterback in 2018, the next step in Eli Manning's attempt to keep a firm grasp on his starting job is this: How does he withstand the addition of a Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold with the No. 2 pick in the draft?

Eli Manning says he won't train Giants QB successor, but won't turn his back either. "It's not your job to mentor somebody. I wouldn't look at it as that role. I would look at it as it's my job to prepare and compete and be ready to play each and every game. In that process you are always talking football, always helping out the other guys in the room."

Feb 2 The biggest challenge for new Giants GM Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur will be rebuilding an offensive line that has been the team's biggest weakness in recent years. To complicate matters, the Giants only have two starting offensive linemen under contract for next season. And veteran guard John Jerry and left tackle Ereck Flowers are hardly pieces to build around.

When Devon Kennard left the Giants' locker room at the end of the season headed toward free agency, he said he wanted to return to the team. Now that they have made permanent changes to their coaching staff, he REALLY wants to return.

Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick coached together with three NFL franchises. ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary on "The Two Bills" premiered Thursday night.

Feb 1 The Redskins sent shock waves through the NFL by agreeing to a trade for Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith.The Giants can take solace in the fact that the Redskins are still a poorly run organization. They botched their quarterback situation at every step.

Pat Shurmur has only one spot open on his newly assembled Giants coaching staff: offensive coordinator. And, wouldn't you know, Shurmur and Duce Staley have a long and strong relationship.

Will Tye could see the writing on the wall when the Giants signed free-agent tight end Rhett Ellison and picked tight end Evan Engram in the first round of the draft last offseason. Tye has stuck with the Patriots and now has a shot to win a Super Bowl ring.

Victor Cruz 'surprised' by no call from Giants in 2017, but not retired just yet. The NFL team most in need of midseason wide receiver help was the Giants, who lost Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris to season-ending injuries and had Sterling Shepard in and out of the lineup on a week-to-week basis.

Steve Spagnuolo believes Ben McAdoo did an "outstanding job" and will be a head coach in the NFL again. "We just had things kind of snowball the wrong way this year. Sometimes when that ball gets rolling the wrong way it's hard to push it back up and get going in the middle of it."
Steve Spagnuolo wasn't hoping to return as the Giants' defensive coordinator when the offseason started. "I was hoping to get the head coaching job, obviously."

Jan 31 Pat Shurmur's first coaching staff is rounding into shape. The latest addition is Hal Hunter, a veteran offensive line coach, who fills that role with the Giants and thus takes command of a unit that had its fingerprints all over last season's 3-13 disaster.
Hal Hunter, who was out of coaching in 2017, has been hired as the Giants offensive line coach. Hunter last worked as the Browns offensive line coach in 2016 after serving as co-offensive line for the Colts from 2013-15. Hunter was fired by the Browns after the team set a dubious franchise record with 66 sacks allowed while going 1-15 in 2016.

Evan Engram productive, even if miscast, as a rookie. Engram's the team's 2017 first-round draft choice, was productive despite not being used by the Giants in accordance to the strengths he showed as a college player.

Johnny Manziel tweeted a video of himself and Odell Beckham Jr. working out in Los Angeles alongside Jamal Liggin, Beckham's long-term personal trainer. It was tagged "deadly combination." Just days after he met with newly hired head coach Pat Shurmur, who has made it abundantly clear that Beckham must clean up his act and carry himself in a manor befitting of the Giants.

Former Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has a warning for any Giants players who will be playing under new GM Dave Gettleman. "He's your problem now," Williams said. Williams referred to his own personal experience of being cut by Gettleman, as well as the exit of five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Steve Smith, as to why he feels the way he does.

Jan 30 Giants head coach Pat Shurmur has taken the first step in establishing his relationship with Odell Beckham Jr. On ESPN Radio's "Golic and Wingo" show Monday morning, Shurmur said he has already spoken to Beckham and believes the receiver is "inspired" for next season.
The new man in charge has expressed the desire to establish a "Giants Way," and Beckham's past histrionics surely will not be included in those guidelines. "There is such pride and such history here," Shurmur said.
The Giants had many issues off the field and in their locker room in 2017, a season in which Beckham largely was absent. So to say Beckham is the catalyst to all that ails the team would be incorrect. He is, however, the highest-profile player on the team. With that status comes responsibility.

Jan 29 Pat Shurmur said when he was introduced as the 18th Giants head coach that he is not going to chase good coaches out of the building. The majority of Ben McAdoo's staff is already gone, hired elsewhere, but there will be a few holdovers.
Running backs coach Craig Johnson will return in the same role and assistant offensive line coach Lunda Wells will become the team's new tight ends coach, a source confirmed to the Daily News.
Shurmur also kept linebackers coach Bill McGovern -- who he worked with for three seasons with the Eagles (2013-15) -- as he prioritized filling out the defensive staff under coordinator James Bettcher. The most conspicuous hole on the staff is offensive coordinator.

Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has no doubts about Jason Pierre-Paul's fit in new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher's scheme. In fact, the Cardinals were so convinced that Pierre-Paul could convert from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker that they tried to sign him when he was a free agent after the 2015 season.

If you are a Giants fan who always swore you would root for anybody to beat the NFC East Division rival Eagles, Cowboys or Redskins in a Super Bowl, here is your test. Are you going to root for Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots to win a sixth Super Bowl title next Sunday night?

Jan 27 Giants are Eli Manning's team again under Pat Shurmur, but drawing line in the sand with Odell Beckham Jr. Eli Manning may get a contract extension before Odell Beckham Jr. does.
Pat Shurmur won't coddle Odell Beckham Jr. The new Giants coach made it clear Friday that his offense will include getting the ball to the top playmaking wide receiver a lot, but Shurmur didn't skirt around some of the maturity issues that have surrounded Beckham's antics.
The Giants appear to be posing a not-so-subtle ultimatum to Odell Beckham Jr.: If you want a new contract, you have to grow up. It will fall to Shurmur to establish a level of behavioral expectations for Beckham, and then make sure that the star wide receiver complies with those rules.
Speaking of dealing with players in general and not specifically Beckham, Shurmur said "I have zero tolerance for people who don't compete, zero tolerance for people who don't give effort, and zero tolerance for people who have a lack of respect."

A new coach is supposed to be a beacon of light for a struggling franchise - a reason to believe in brighter days ahead. So it didn't seem like a good omen when, just 25 seconds after Pat Shurmur was introduced as the new head coach of the Giants, the lights in the auditorium suddenly went off.
Shurmur showed composure and compassion as he offered his plan for getting a team that had descended into dysfunction last season back on course. He showed himself to be a demanding, no-nonsense coach, yet a man who will also offer a clean slate to anyone who contributed to the myriad problems that surfaced last year.

Jan 26 Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said that new head coach Pat Shurmur plans to call offensive plays. How have offenses fared with head coaches calling the plays?

Former Giants
Jeff Hostetler was sitting at the dinner table in New Jersey with his wife Vicky in mid-December of 1990. He had asked Giants general manager George Young seemingly every year to be traded but was annually rejected. It was three years before free agency became a thing in the NFL.

Jan 25 Giants GM Dave Gettleman: Eli Manning and Odell Beckham aren't going anywhere. There's a reasonable suggestion that the Giants should take a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, but Gettleman warned about the potential pitfalls of such a move.
Forcing a quarterback to justify such a lofty pick is not the way to go, Gettleman warned. "If you take a guy just to take a guy, especially at the quarterback position, and he fails, you set yourself back five years."

In what might have been a subtle jab at the previous coach, Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said Wednesday the franchise hired an adult in Pat Shurmur as head coach. "I really believe the head coach job for the New York Football Giants is a job for an adult and Pat is every bit of that," Gettleman said from the Senior Bowl practices.

Pat Shurmur isn't going to give up what got him here. Giants general manager Dave Gettleman told reporters in attendance at Senior Bowl practice Wednesday that Shurmur will call offensive plays in his first year as the team's head coach.

Jan 24 Special Report - So now that the Giants have announced Pat Shurmur as their new Head Coach, the next real question on the table for this franchise involves how it will choose to spend the first round selection, the second overall draft choice in April's NFL Draft.
I mean, there have only been two times that the Giants have had a "top four" selection in the draft in the past 40 years, and the two players they ended up with in those two drafts were merely Lawrence Taylor in 1981 and Eli Manning in 2004 -- two of the top five most impactful players to ever play a down for the New York Giants. Oh, and both of them led their teams to not one, but two to Lombardi Trophies with their excellence.

Pat Shurmur told the Giants that he believes he can win with Eli Manning as his quarterback, which is exactly what his soon-to-be new bosses wanted to hear. They don't believe Manning is finished. They also don't know who'll replace him when he is.

Pat Shurmur got to work quickly to fill his staff after officially being hired as Giants head coach on Monday night. By Tuesday night, it was reported that Shurmur will hire James Bettcher as defensive coordinator.
