Giants' Pat Shurmur predictably named a coach who could be gone in 2020

Is New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur on the hot seat? As justifiable as that position would be, by all accounts, the team has no plans to terminate him in 2019 or at any point during the upcoming offseason.

Still, Shurmur’s Giants have vastly under-performed, even when taking into account the team’s roster turnover and league-leading rookie usage, which is highlighted by quarterback Daniel Jones.

As such, Shurmur is a popular name when it comes to discussing which head coaches could get the boot by 2020. In fact, Bleacher Report has him right near the top of their list of coaches who could be sent packing.

The wheels fell off for New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, rolled into a ditch and exploded.

In fact, that might not be a strong enough description of how things have gone for the 2-8 Giants.

Shurmur’s team has now lost six games in a row. To make matters even worse, those two wins came against downtrodden Washington and Tampa Bay teams.

The Giants don’t do much of anything well. Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones has thrown 15 touchdowns but has been sacked 32 times. Star running back Saquon Barkley just rushed for a single yard on 13 attempts against the Jets on Sunday. The defense gives up 28.9 points per game, the third-worst mark in the league.

While the Giants front office can’t escape blame for its questionable roster construction, this isn’t what anyone envisioned when Shurmur arrived in January 2018 to help turn around a three-win team. At this rate, the Giants will be lucky to match their 5-11 record from last season.

Giants ownership is very clearly frustrated with yet another losing season, which could be seen on John Mara’s face as he stormed out of MetLife Stadium following a humiliating loss to the New York Jets last season.

Still, the Giants’ locker room is less chaotic than it has been in the recent past and it’s clear players are not quitting on their coach. As a result, Mara and Steve Tisch may be (and appear to be) willing to give Shurmur a longer, but limited leash than they had given Ben McAdoo previously.
