Dave Gettleman Talks Eli Manning, Says Giants Will Draft Best Player Available

Dave Gettleman Talks Eli Manning, Says Giants Will Draft Best Player Available

This was more important than ever to the Giants after their implosion (including in the locker room) this past season. He was straightforward, he was honest.

"I had an opportunity to watch (that game)", Gettleman said. "Again, I hate to keep saying it, but for me, he was a professional". It's not Pat Shurmur's style.

The Giants hired Gettleman prior to the New Year. The belief in league circles is that pretty much took them out of the running for either Patriots assistant. Ownership contends they want Beckham to remain a Giant for life but didn't want to get into it during Friday's press conference. "In the old handbook, it was 'say nothing and be very guarded, '" he said. "So, in sum, he checked all of the boxes for us". We did some more research, and we ultimately decided that Pat was the right man for this job. After attending Friday's presser, longtime beat reporter Ralph Vacchiano came away believing, "it's clear the Eli Manning Era with the Giants isn't almost as close to its end as it seemed two months ago".

During the interview he quickly realized working with Gettleman might be a natural fit. But at the same time, Shurmur said he won't tolerate certain behaviors. I'm just going to say that right away. He's also been an offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings and led them to the NFC championship game.

"Everything in Cleveland, I wish I knew then what I know now", he said. I need to get to know what makes him tick.

The Giants already added a no-nonsense general manager. Those are the people that know me. But I think what needs to happen now is I need to get to know him. What other team had three players suspended during the season due to their conduct?

What John Mara and Steve Tisch see, other than an advertised offensive guru who (hopefully) will squeeze the last ounce of greatness from two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, will (hopefully) select and groom the next franchise quarterback and (hopefully) resurrect dormant passing and rushing attacks is an individual capable of changing the culture inside a locker room that fell apart under former coach Ben McAdoo. They saw that in Shurmur.

"I thought in the second year [in Cleveland], they were making strides", he said. "He's extremely intelligent. I think the experience speaks for itself. I can't wait for myself and our staff to get to work with him". "We were able to identify some great candidates, but it struck me that the name that constantly came up with just about everybody that we talked to was Pat Shurmur".

One of Shurmur's first steps in his new job will be to fill out his coaching staff. He handled the questions and demands with grace all while seemingly being himself.
