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.

Feb 8 Eight days after Super Bowl LI ended, the Giants cut fan favorite Victor Cruz and starting running back Rashad Jennings. Now that Super Bowl LII is in the books, it's that time of year again. Here are six players in danger of becoming salary cap casualties for the Giants.

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.

NFC East News
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

Randy Moss reflects on losing to Giants in Super Bowl XLII: 'They gave us fits, man'. Less than three minutes separated Randy Moss and the New England Patriots from the first 19-0 season in NFL history, but the All-Pro wide receiver knew victory was far from certain.  |  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.

Former Giants
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.

Former Giants
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.

Jan 23 Giants officially hire Vikings OC Pat Shurmur to be next head coach as rest of staff begins to take shape. Shurmur's contract with the Giants reportedly is for five years.
The Giants did not need a second meeting with Pat Shurmur to know they wanted him to be their 18th head coach in franchise history. And so, when a winter storm prevented Shurmur from getting out of Minneapolis, they hired him over the phone, making it official Monday afternoon.

NFL News
Have we ever seen anything like this hellhole of a Super Bowl? If you are a Jets fan, you are soon to enter a second decade of Patriots Envy, being force-fed an unlikely dynasty in New England. And, of course, Giants fans detest the Eagles in a way that's almost hard to describe.

Jan 22 Giants are now free to hire their next head coach. Now that the Vikings are eliminated from the playoffs - routed by the Eagles in Sunday night's NFC Championship - the Giants can hire Shurmur at any time. They are expected to meet with him Tuesday for a second interview and a contract will soon follow.

Pat Shurmur flew home with the Vikings on Sunday night and will be part of exit interviews with players on Monday. Then, at some point in the next day or so, he'll have an entrance interview with the Giants.

As Vikings offensive coordinator and presumed Giants head coach Pat Shurmur walked through the tunnels of Lincoln Financial Field after Sunday's 38-7 loss to the Eagles, he came across a familiar face in quarterback Nick Foles. The two shared an embrace. "Good for you, man, happy for you," Shurmur said with a big smile. "Now go win it."
But that should be the last time in a long time Shurmur praises someone wearing Eagles green. In fact, the Giants play the Eagles twice a year and they need Shurmur to throw out Sunday's Vikings game plan before he signs to coach them.

Jan 21 Dave Gettleman is changing 'everything' about Giants' draft process. Gettleman took a look at how the Panthers graded players, preferred that system to what he knew with the Giants, and retained it in Charlotte. Now he is bringing it to the Giants.

Whether it's reality based, the perception now is Pat Shurmur, when and if he is officially named Giants head coach, was the organization's third choice (behind Matt Patricia and Josh McDaniels) for the gig.

Like other NFL franchises, the Giants have good and bad memories of past head coaches. So before the Giants hire Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur (or anybody else for that matter), let's look back at the good, the bad and the ugly of the franchise's hiring of coaches.

Former Giants
Tom Coughlin is not coaching the Jaguars, but his imprint is all over the team. That should make Patriots Nation nervous.

Jan 20 Who played the most for the Giants this season? A total of 69 players saw action on offense and defense during a season that saw the depth chart decimated by injuries and disciplinary issues.

Jan 19 If Pat Shurmur wants to endear himself quickly to Giants fans, all he has to do is beat the Eagles on Sunday. Capturing the NFC championship and advancing to Super Bowl LII (which just so happens to be at the Vikings' home in Minneapolis) would be a great way to cap his tenure as the Vikings' offensive coordinator.

Pat Shurmur was always "infatuated" with the Giants job and is greatly intrigued with not only getting to work with Eli Manning as his career winds down, but also the possibility, thanks to the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, to mold the team's next franchise quarterback.

Odell Beckham will thrive under Pat Shurmur, says Vikings WR Stefon Diggs. Odell Beckham Jr. should look forward to thriving under Shurmur as Giants head coach "because Pat knows how to get people the ball."

Eli Manning and new Giants general manager Dave Gettleman recently had their much-anticipated meeting, "Yes, it was a great meeting," Gettleman told The Post on Thursday. "Eli, obviously on this team, there's only three guys who are still here from when I left. Eli, Zak DeOssie and JPP [Jason Pierre-Paul]."

Jan 18 He may not be their first, second or third choice, but if the Giants name Pat Shurmur their next head coach, the man who currently employs him in Minnesota believes he'll do a fine job.
When you talk to the players Pat Shurmur coaches, you hear a recurring theme about his coaching style. Shurmur, the current Vikings offensive coordinator and presumptive future Giants head coach, keeps it simple for his players in an effort to allow them to play free and fast.

One of the first orders of business Pat Shurmur will need to do once he is hired as head coach of the Giants will be to assemble a coaching staff. Many of the Giants assistants from last season have taken jobs elsewhere - mostly on the offensive side of the ball.

Jan 17 Giants fans should be pulling for Pat Shurmur, Vikings to win Super Bowl. Shurmur, 52, has been to a Super Bowl before at the end of the 2004 season as Donovan McNabb's quarterbacks coach in Philly, losing Super Bowl XXXIX to the New England Patriots, 24-21, in Jacksonville.

The Giants and Pat Shurmur - the Vikings offensive coordinator - made it clear Monday, without uttering a word in public, they want each other, although nothing can be made official until after the Vikings are done playing. If you want a glimpse into Pat Shurmur as the new head coach of the Giants, think of a slightly younger, much less round Andy Reid.

Here's Odell Beckham's last chance to become Giants leader. Pat Shurmur will be Beckham's third head coach, and the first two - Tom Coughlin and Ben McAdoo - couldn't make it past two seasons with him.

Former Giants
Ben McAdoo might be moving up in the NFL Draft order. the Browns are bringing in McAdoo to interview for offensive coordinator under Hue Jackson, according to Jackson is 1-31 in two seasons with the Browns.

Jan 16 Giants expected to hire Vikings OC Pat Shurmur as head coach with hopes he can fix offense. Pat Shurmur knows quarterbacks.
Shurmur was the Eagles' offensive coordinator in 2013, during which second-year quarterback Nick Foles posted a QB rating of 119.2 with 27 touchdowns and two interceptions. The only players with a higher single-season passing rating are Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning.
Shurmur has shown he's a resourceful leader, having helped the Vikings get within a win of the Super Bowl with a journeyman quarterback who has produced a career year. The Vikings' offensive line underwent a major personnel transformation this season and has only gotten better.

What does this mean for Shurmur's new coaching staff? It could mean Steve Spagnuolo gets to stay as the defensive coordinator. The two got their NFL initiation in 1999 on Andy Reid's staff with the Eagles and spent eight years together in Philadelphia.
Spagnuolo was one of the hottest names in coaching after the 2008 season. He was hired as coach of the Rams and tapped Shurmur as his offensive coordinator for two seasons. That gave Shurmur the launching pad for his first and only previous head coaching job: A two-year stint with the Browns during which he went 9-23.

Jan 14 Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is the No. 1 candidate for the Giants and Lions. This is the easiest decision Patricia will make in his head coaching career. Indications are Patricia and the Giants want each other with the Lions hoping his long-time association and friendship with Detroit GM Bob Quinn when they were together in New England for 12 years will be enough to attract him to the Motor City and keep him away from the bright lights of Broadway.

Giants can't be left at the coaching altar this time. Do not under any circumstance be left standing in this high-stakes game of musical chairs by Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia taking the Lions job and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels taking the Colts job and Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur taking the Cardinals job.

Jan 13 Devon Kennard is entering an offseason full of uncertainty. The Giants linebacker is set to become a free agent after completing his rookie contract. Kennard wants to return to the Giants, even though he knows the team will be much different after general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Ben McAdoo were fired in December.

Matt Patricia could be coordinating his final defensive game plan for the New England Patriots on Saturday night, before relocating four hours south to be the Giants' new head coach. It is unlikely, of course, that the AFC's top-seeded Patriots (13-3) will lose to the fifth-seeded Tennessee Titans (9-7) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., in a prime-time NFL divisional round clash (8:15 p.m.).

Jan 12 Giants' coaching search is down to three. The next head coach of the Giants will be Josh McDaniels, Matt Patricia or Pat Shurmur, with no surprise candidate looming, and at this point all three are very much in the mix.
All three of the remaining candidates are part of coaching staffs that are participating in playoff games this weekend: Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
Of the three finalists for the Giants' head coaching job, Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has generated considerably less buzz than Patriots coordinators Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia. But Shurmur shouldn't be dismissed as a candidate.

Jan 10 You are a general manager, and you are searching for a new head coach. And Bill Belichick is not available. And then you look at the records of those who branched out on their own from the Belichick tree, and you gasp. And so you begin reminding yourself that there is only one Belichick.

Giants' next head coach needs to fix broken offense - or bring on someone who can. The most important question arguably is one of the simplest: If you are our head coach, how will we score points?

Jan 9 Odell Beckham pleads with Eli Apple to stop arguing with angry Giants fans on Twitter: 'Stop bro, ur better than that'. Beckham, 25, to his credit, told Apple that neither Beckham nor Apple was "good enough" this season and cautioned it's not "worth it" to respond to the nasty critics on Twitter.

Jan 6 Can Bill Belichick, yes Bill Belichick, be the next coach of the Giants? With a report of turmoil in New England involving him, Tom Brady and Robert Kraft, it certainly seems feasible.
The possibility of Belichick, who was a Giants assistant from 1979-90, returning to the Meadowlands is tantalizing. But is it realistic?

Jan 5 Mike Sullivan left quite the impression with his play-calling Week 6 in Denver. The Broncos on Thursday reached an agreement with Sullivan, the Giants' offensive coordinator the past two seasons, to be Denver's new quarterbacks coach.
Sullivan surfacing in Denver could make the Broncos a more appealing destination for Eli Manning if the Giants cut ties with the 37-year-old quarterback. Sullivan and Manning have developed a strong bond after working together for over a decade.

Dave Gettleman talks Giants rebuild, GM influences and the QB issue, what it means to be a New York Giant: "I'd tell 'em: "You gotta understand: You're playing for a flagship NFL franchise. You're representing a tradition of winning, a tradition of Super Bowls. You've gotta live up to that. This isn't just some place. And you gotta understand that right now."
Gettleman doesn't miss much. The Giants' new GM described how he stayed sharp in the five months between jobs, how he intends to proceed with trying to resurrect the franchise, and dove into subjects ranging from Eli Manning to Eli Apple, to the NFL Draft, the coaching search, to eating elephants, and the personal side of his transition.
Dave Gettleman will be looking for the next Shaun O'Hara. He wants the version of O'Hara before he came to the Giants. The undrafted player who was unheralded and relatively unproven in four seasons with the Browns.

Jan 4 The Giants' coaching search continues to pick up steam. The first interview took place on Wednesday, and there will be more to come in the next five days.
No introductions were necessary Wednesday when Steve Spagnuolo interviewed for the Giants head-coaching job, a position he held on an interim basis for the final four games this season.
Tom Brady sometimes is caught screaming at Josh McDaniels on the sideline. On Wednesday, Brady was singing his praises, providing at least one Giants coaching possibility with the No. 12 Seal of Approval.

Dave Gettleman wasn't only meeting with Steve Spagnuolo as the first candidate to interview for the Giants' head coach vacancy on Wednesday. He also had his first sit-down with cornerback Eli Apple, who was suspended for the final game of the season.
Eli Apple's mother is ready to fight back. Annie Apple was the main subject of a lengthy story about the tumultuous season her son has had with the Giants. She was also the focus of a Black Sports Online story about the family's strife. She threatened legal action against both Monday on Twitter.

Giants have no choice: It's time to grab Eli Manning's successor. Gettleman will meet soon with Manning and the summit will likely result in a resolution. Here's hoping Manning will be on board with mentoring one of the young guns along with Davis Webb - if given the chance.
Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold? Either way, Giants have an NFL Draft opportunity they can't pass up. They'll both be available, along with Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield and Wyoming wildcard Josh Allen, setting up the possibility that four quarterbacks could go in the first few picks.

Former Giants
Ben McAdoo once said if the Packers "put a lifetime contract in front of me, I'd probably sign it." The former Giants coach's potential path back to Green Bay has emerged.

Jan 3 New Giants general manager Dave Gettleman made his first local media appearance Tuesday since his introductory press conference last week. Gettleman discussed Eli Manning, Eli Apple, Odell Beckham and more. Some quick takeaways.
Giants new GM Dave Gettleman said last week he plans to move forward with Eli Manning as the quarterback, but on Tuesday he left a little bit of doubt in the air.
It's a marriage that hasn't yet reached its expiration date: Eli Manning and the Giants need each other for one more year. It's been 14 years and unlike a lot of old married couples, the thrill is not yet gone.
Gettleman reiterated that he had not seen much of Manning this season, and that the only game he watched closely was the 434-yard passing performance against the Eagles. "The guy I saw that day was the guy who put two rings on my fingers," Gettleman said.

Who has most attractive coach opening? Giants fans know. It is easily the best destination on the market. Come to New York, dare to be great in a place where if you make it here, you can make it anywhere. The Post's ranking of the best franchises for a head coach with Super Bowl ambitions:.
