'All signs' pointing to Matt Patricia as Giants head coach

  • Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia

Patricia might be the right fit for the Giants, but fixing New York's offense has to remain a priority. His intelligence is very highly touted.

Peter King of Monday Morning Quarterback reports Patricia actually favors NY over Detroit contrary to earlier speculation.

A mixed bag of rain and snow
Blustery, with an east northeast wind 5 to 10 miles per hour becoming north northwest 15 to 25 miles per hour after midnight. SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies and frigid temperatures continue, with a low temperature of 10 degrees.

There have been lots of changes lately when it comes to the Detroit Lions.

In hindsight fate smiled on the Lions when former general manager Martin Mayhew wanted to hire Ken Whisenhunt in 2014. However, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News said that the #New York Giants might beat them for Patricia's services. Sports Illustrated's Peter King adds that while the Lions favor Patricia over Houston Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel for their head coaching job, Patricia is now leaning towards the Giants' head coaching position, meaning Vrabel could eventually land in Motor City.

The offense struggled after two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers missed nine games because of a collarbone injury. Prior to coming to Green Bay, Gutekunst spent a season as a scouting assistant with the Chiefs.

Leonard writes, "The NFL's tampering policy dictates that the Giants and Patricia technically would not be permitted even to make an "agreement to execute a contract, ' let alone sign one, "until after the conclusion of the employer club's playing season" - or until after the Patriots" postseason ends". Some key offensive weapons, such as Odell Beckham, Jr. will be returning from injury.

While the Giants look to have their man, they will not be able to officially sign Patricia until the Patriots season ends, which could be as late as February 5, the day after Super Bowl LII. That situation lends itself to Patricia having a quarterback of the present and future.

The Patriots defense has ranked among the NFL's top 10 in points allowed in all six of Patricia's seasons despite constant question marks surrounding their secondary.
