Giants brass won’t give vote of confidence to Pat Shurmur
It is not a stretch by any means to say that the New York Giants are not a good football team at the moment. However, with pieces like quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley already in place, it remains to bee seen how the Giants progress going forward and whether head coach Pat Shurmur will be around to see such progress.
According to a recent statement made by at least one higher-up atop the Giants organization, the New York brass won’t be giving a vote of confidence to Shurmur at the present moment, which obviously puts his future in East Rutherford in jeopardy.
“It’s been a very frustrating season,” Giants co-owner Steve Tisch recently told Bruce Beck of NBC 4 New York. “At the end of the season John Mara & I are gonna get together & discuss the future. As partners we have to be very honest with each other about where we see this team going into the 2020 season.”
Prior to the start of last season, the Giants underwhelmed and ultimately selected the aforementioned Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Penn State. Thanks to yet another underwhelming campaign a season ago, the Giants managed to selected Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Duke. With this stretch of less than stellar football continuing into this season, the Giants will once again draft inside the top five come next spring.
As a result, the question now becomes, “when will the future become the present?”
