Giants owner declines to offer vote of confidence to Pat Shurmur, Dave Gettleman

Pat Shurmur

It’s been a very disappointing season for the New York Giants, and the seat is getting hot for both coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman.

If that wasn’t clear already, Giants co-owner Steve Tisch made it pretty obvious on Tuesday. When asked by WNBC’s Bruce Beck if he still had confidence in Shurmur and Gettleman, Tisch passed on the question, stating that he would sit down with co-owner John Mara after the season and discuss their futures.

In other words, that’s the opposite of a ringing vote of confidence. Shurmur is now 7-21 in two seasons as the team’s coach, which coincides with Gettleman’s tenure as GM. General managers tend to get more time, especially since Gettleman invested in young quarterback Daniel Jones, but Shurmur’s days definitely seem numbered. There’s even speculation on who might succeed him. Tisch knows what people will make of his words — the easy thing to do would have been to say yes. Instead, he turned the heat up on his staff as the 2-10 team limps toward the finish line.
