Pat Shurmur Formally Introduced As Giants Head Coach

Pat Shurmur Formally Introduced As Giants Head Coach

You know we really become a combination of what we believe and what we experience and in my career, I've experienced a lot of really good things that hopefully we can bring here and be great. The veteran was benched last season after a disastrous record, as the former coaching staff, headed by Ben McAdoo, chose to experiment under center. There is plenty of optimism around the Giants organization with Shurmur's hiring, including how he'll utilize quarterback Eli Manning.

Speaking and answering questions for more than 25 minutes after being introduced by co-owner John Mara, Shurmur was poised, amusing and open, thanking his mother in MI for teaching him to be competitive, compassionate and not allowing anyone to tell him you can't do something. "With Pat's experience with quarterbacks, it's got to make Eli very excited and I think Eli looks at new leadership and his role in it is going to be terrific".

Manning suffered through a disastrous season in 2016, during which not only did the Giants post a 3-13 record, he was also unceremoniously - and arguably wrongfully - benched late in the season. "He's a competitor. I don't think that is going to faze him the least".

Shumur said Beckham has a "clean slate" as far as he's concerned.

"He's an outstanding football player and I can't wait to get to work with him".

General manager Dave Gettleman renewed the franchise's commitment this week to Eli Manning, but at 37 years old, the team could be tempted to lock up their QB of the future. He declared a "zero tolerance" policy for players who don't compete, exhibit a lack of effort or don't show the requisite respect to their coaches or the game. "I'm here to learn and be studious and learn from him and just get the offense and the plays that he wants run and do it his way".

"He's a professional", Mara said of Manning, who has been the Giants' starting quarterback since 2004 but has struggled the past two years. I saw him throw this summer in person. "Now if there is a legitimate [quarterback in the draft], they got to trade up [and] give away the farm to get the guy". "I know he's a double transfer. I need to get to know what makes him tick, and I need to talk to him about what we're looking for from a guy who plays from the New York Giants". Beckham will obviously need to prove he can still be one of the NFL's elite wide receivers.

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.

The Giants officially announced Shurmur as the 18th coach in franchise history.

"We will deal with that at the appropriate time".

"It's such a tough job, especially coming off a season that we came off of with all the issues in the locker room and everything else", Mara said. I spent some time talking with him, he seems like a great kid. I want first Pat to sit down and have him a good understanding about how we're going to act going forward.

Shurmur: I'm thrilled about some of the pieces that we have in place.

"We're going to do what we can to get better each day", Shurmur said. Please like and follow on Facebook and Twitter.
