New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch says he and John Mara will “have to be very honest with each other” after this season concludes.
The New York Giants have just four games remaining on the year. At 2-10, they’re mathematically eliminated from postseason contention and won’t be playing January football for a third consecutive season. This is also the third straight year where the organization will suffer 10 or more defeats.
So what changes will the Giants need to make in order to avoid a fourth straight disastrous campaign in 2020? Regardless of what they do, every decision will have to be in the interest of the future, according to co-owner Steve Tisch.
“It’s been a very frustrating season,” Tisch told Bruce Beck of NBC. “At the end of the season [co-owner] John Mara and I are gonna get together and 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.”
Could the future include both head coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman? Many fans are hoping it doesn’t, at least with Shurmur. Since his hire as head coach, he’s combined for a record of 7-21 in his first 28 games. Don’t forget, Ben McAdoo was fired after 28 games as head coach, having gone 13-15. Therefore, it’ll be interesting to see the verdict made on Shurmur moving forward.
In my opinion, the headline “Shurmur as Giants head coach in 2020” seems like an unlikely scenario at this point. But, we’ll leave that decision up to both Tisch and Mara.
