Giants’ Pat Shurmur speaks out after more questions about job security arise
Pat Shurmur is in his second season with the New York Giants, but many around the Big Apple are already calling for his job.
The Giants suffered their sixth straight loss of the season on Sunday, falling to the lowly New York Jets and bringing their record to just 2-8 on the year.
During his time in New York thus far, Shurmur has gone just 7-19, so, naturally, questions about his job security are going to arise, and Shurmur is getting tired of them.
On Monday, Shurmur bristled at reporters for once again bringing it up:
“Obviously we’re less than 24 hours out from the game and this is the second time you’ve asked me that question in 24 hours,” Shurmur said on Monday, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. “If I would have had that conversation, it’s not something I would share publicly.”
You can understand Shurmur’s frustration, as it can’t be easy to constantly have people poking and prodding you about your job.
At the same time, however, this comes with the territory of being an NFL head coach, especially on one of the most prestigious organizations in the league.
To be fair to Shurmur, the Giants were not expected to contend this season, but it never looks good to lose six straight games.
The good news for Big Blue is that it appears to be in good hands with young quarterback Daniel Jones (if he can just fix his fumbling issue). The bad news is that Jones may have another head coach in the near future.
