Pat Shurmur

Pat Shurmur

The quarterback whisperer could be coming to the New York Giants. He seems headed in that direction, barring any bumps in the road or major detours.

The Giants’ coaching search has put the spotlight on Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Yes, the same Pat Shurmur who was the Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator when Nick Foles threw 27 touchdown passes and two interceptions in 2013. The same coach who helped Sam Bradford have a career year last season and Case Keenum enjoy the same this season.

This would seem to bode well for whomever the Giants’ quarterbacks are next season and beyond, whether it be Eli Manning, Davis Webb, Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold — and let’s not count out Keenum — or anyone else that might enter the picture. Shurmur was trained and raised in the NFL by Andy Reid, who himself is pretty good at mentoring quarterbacks. Shurmur worked under Chip Kelly, who seems to know a thing or two about that, as well.

Shurmur has put it all together to become a well-respected offensive mind. His résumé pops because of his quarterback expertise.

What might that mean for the Giants if he lands with New York?

Eli Manning

Shurmur runs an offense that employs plenty of West Coast concepts. This would make the transition relatively smooth if the Giants and Shurmur elected to bring back Manning for at least one more season, which appears likely, as long as Manning is willing. And maybe Shurmur could get the most out of Manning. Manning hasn’t played particularly well the past two seasons, but maybe Shurmur could design an offense that gets the ball in the New York playmakers’ hands quickly. It’s not as if the Giants lack playmakers, with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram leading the way. For Manning, this potential hire is a positive; it probably would increase his chances of remaining with the only team he has played with for at least another season.

The No. 2 pick

There is a strong chance the Giants will select a quarterback with the second-overall pick in this year’s NFL draft. Darnold and Rosen are considered top prospects, and this kind of opportunity doesn’t come around often. The Giants hope they won’t be drafting this high again next year; if they do, it wouldn’t bode well for Shurmur. When Shurmur was the head coach in Cleveland, the team did select a quarterback in the first round: The Browns took Brandon Weeden with the 22nd pick in 2012. That didn’t work out well. But this time around, Shurmur’s team would have a much higher pick and a chance to find a franchise quarterback. One can see Shurmur looking for something akin to a Doug Pederson-Carson Wentz situation in New York.

Davis Webb

Let’s not forget the Giants already have a young quarterback with a big arm and top-notch work ethic on their roster. Webb was last year’s third-round draft pick, and he is 22 years old. There is something there for Shurmur to work with and mold into a quality NFL starter. Webb might be the biggest beneficiary of all if Shurmur does make it to the Giants. Webb is bound to become a better player quickly while working with the quarterback whisperer.

Case Keenum

Hey, Keenum is set to become a free agent at the end of this season. Who knows how that plays out, even if the Vikings reach the Super Bowl. It already has been reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Keenum could join Shurmur in a move if it is with a QB-needy team. The Giants could fall into that category if Manning sees the writing on the wall and decides not to return; it’s not out of the realm of possibilities.

Others

Teddy Bridgewater? Bradford? Geno Smith? Who knows how this offseason will work out with GM Dave Gettleman, now in charge of personnel decisions for the Giants. But any quarterbacks who eventually land with the Giants would appear to be in good hands if Shurmur is there to work with them.

Cheap Carolina Panthers Jersey Wholesale From China Sale

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton abruptly walked out of his Wednesday news conference after a question about the offense’s ability to consistently get yardage in “big chunks.”

Newton paused when asked the question, rolled his eyes and answered with “next question.” He then exited. He was approximately a step away from the podium as another reporter attempted to ask a question.

“Cam didn’t intend to be discourteous toward any specific media member,” Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said in a statement. “In his mind, after answering questions for nine minutes he had fulfilled his obligations.”

Newton’s exit came a week after he did not fulfill his weekly media obligations and speak on Wednesday or Thursday. And it came two weeks after he publicly apologized for making light of a football question from a female reporter, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer. Rodrigue took two weeks off after the incident and returned last week.

Newton met his media obligations during the time prior to that.

Wednesday wasn’t the first time Newton cut short a news conference. His most publicized early exit followed a 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50, when he walked out on reporters after answering only a handful of questions, mostly with short responses. He later admitted to being a “sore loser.”

The Panthers (4-3) have struggled with completing passes of more than 20 yards this season, particularly the past two weeks in losses to the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears. Newton was 1-for-6 with an interception on attempts of 20-plus yards in those games.

He has thrown five interceptions against one touchdown over the past two games, after throwing six TD passes and one pick the previous two weeks in wins against the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions.

Coach Ron Rivera defended his quarterback’s performance on Wednesday, noting that Chicago scored on a 75-yard fumble return and a 76-yard interception on plays that weren’t Newton’s fault.

“Well, let’s see,” Rivera said. “The ball ricochets off somebody’s hand, tips off another guy’s hand, gets tipped at the line of scrimmage, we drop a pitch … yeah. There’s more to it. People look at numbers and they start saying one thing or another.

“We’ve had four weeks in a row where we’ve had almost 300 yards consecutively of total offense. … We put points up against Philadelphia. We had a couple of bad things happen. I’m not sure you can directly point those at the quarterback.”

Rivera said he’d like to believe fluke things have happened the past two weeks that have made Newton and the offense look worse than they have been.

“I’d like to think we all saw the game, we all saw those things happen,” he said. “It’s not like he tried to have those things happen is my point. That’s why we don’t need to start pushing panic buttons.”

When asked about some of the fluke things to which Rivera referred, Newton said, “It is what it is.”

“Nobody cares about my feelings. Nobody cares if the ball popped up in the air or got tipped,” he added. “It’s just on us to make sure when we have opportunities to make plays and to do things we know we’re capable of doing, we’ve just got to do it.

“And I’m speaking more so of the man in mirror. And everything falls in place.”
