Gettleman, Caserio, Wolf among the candidates for Giants job

Unlike the Browns, the Giants don’t plan to hire a new G.M. before the season ends. Like the Browns, the Giants may hire a guy who was fired from another G.M. job in the offseason.

As PFT noted several days ago, former Panthers G.M. Dave Gettleman has emerged as the front-runner for the job. The link comes from former Giants G.M. Ernie Accorsi, who is close friends with Gettleman.

But other candidates have been mentioned. Per a league source, Patriots V.P. of player personnel Nick Caserio and Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf also are in the mix.

The Giants will hire a G.M. before hiring a coach. And the thinking, per a separate source, is that Gettleman or Wolf could hire Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, and that Caserio could try to pry Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels from New England.

  1. Caserio and McDaniels – you can see it coming.

    You need a coach and GM on the same page like that

    Only question is whether Mara/Goodell can stomach the Belichick pedigree

    bb singlehandedly coached up the sb 25 win for chrissakes and there is no way ny gets to sb 21, without bb’s 1985 promotion to cooedinator.

    you people are sad

    your odd inferiority complex when boston is successful is comical

  3. Caserio is the most transformational coach/executive in the league. He is the director of player personnel, he coaches on the field during the week, and up in the coach’s box during games. As a Patriots fan, I’m hoping the Giants do the expected and hire Gettleman. They are both great choices and Gettleman is probably the more conservative choice and has ties to the Giants. He’s 66 and seasoned.

  4. If they offer Wolf the job, he will take it, because his father respects the original NFL team tradition.

  5. If it’s Nick Caserio, Josh McDaniels might be the first choice as HC (as pointed out), but I don’t think you could rule out Matt Patrica as a Plan B. If they DO hire Caserio, I’m not sure anyone other than McDaniels or Patricia would be comfortable with him considering the hands-on role he has in New England helping coach/coordinate, etc (assuming he would prefer to continue to operate that way).

  6. wolf is ron wolf’s kid and clueless like ted thompson. caserio is by far and away the best choice, but you have to wonder how bb would feel about it after mara being exposed as a cheater with goodell.

    i don’t know if caserio if would sell his soul and pull a manboobs

    if bb blesses it as the classy professional
    he is, then fine

    i would imagine caserio would set it up in nj how bb set it up in foxborough

    caserio’s underling best be ready for some heavy administration work

    Well if that is true explain to me and all the packer fans why the packers have twice as many championships than the pats. Huh?

  8. Belichick is a LEGEND in NY for his ‘Andre Reed’ defense.

    The Giants were supposed to get blown out.

    I would think Caserio would be a frontrunner because of it, not the opposite.

  9. Please interview Wolf. Maybe this will get the Packers to put Thompson on the train before it leaves the station. The Packers already lost John Schneider to the Seahawks.

    =======
    Packers started in 1929
    Patriots 1960

    Most of their championships were before the the Super Bowl era.

    If you want to talk about this century 5 to 1 Patriots.

    anything else?
