NFL insiders believe Giants’ Pat Shurmur will be out, but Dave Gettleman will stay

We should know for sure by Monday

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network both reported on Sunday morning that they believe Pat Shurmur will be out as head coach of the New York Giants after the game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Glazer said “I think Pat Shurmur is going to be out.” Glazer added that he thinks Dave Gettleman has “saved his job” and will stay.

Glazer also said he believes Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys has to win a Super Bowl title to keep his job beyond this season.

Garafolo said “based on the conversations” he has had that Shurmur will coach his final game with the Giants on Sunday. Garafolo said he is “not hearing a whole lot” about Gettleman, which leads him to believe Gettleman will remain.

So, two of the most knowledgeable of NFL insiders believe that Shurmur is out and Gettleman remains.

There was a recent report that co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch might be “at odds” over how to proceed after yet another disappointing season, with Mara preferring stability while Tisch is advocating sweeping change. This type of move could be perceived as a ype of compromise between the two men.

While we wait to find out, give my recent look at the potential scenarios a read.
