Kyle Lauletta faces punishment from the Giants for his Tuesday arrest, with coach Pat Shurmur promising “consequences for this type of behavior.”

Shurmur did not rule out a suspension for Lauletta during his weekly appearance on WFAN 660.

“We’ll see,” he told the radio station, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.

Police in Weehawken, New Jersey, arrested Lauletta and charged him with eluding police, obstructing administration of law and resisting arrest along with motor vehicle charges that include reckless driving and disregarding an officer’s instructions.

Shurmur called the arrest “disturbing.”

Giants fans have called for the team to bench Eli Manning in favor of the fourth-round draft pick. It seemed only a matter of time before Lauletta would get his chance to play if not start.

However, Shurmur was non-committal when asked if Lauletta’s arrest affects whether the third-string quarterback plays this season.

“There’s elements in the building of ‘OK, what does the future look like?’ We think of those things,” Shurmur said.

Lauletta returned to the team facility for work Tuesday afternoon, Shurmur said.

  1. Shurmur just got real lucky with the Manning controversy,,,he can thank the NYPD for putting that on the back burner for now !

  2. Big deal…Giants aren’t going to bench Eli “don’t trade me or I’ll tell my dad” Manning anyway. He’ only lost 20 out of the last 24 games.

  3. What’s he going to do? Deactivate him? A punishment would be making him run for his life behind the Giants line for the remainder of the season.

  4. Pat is happy. With the calls to bench Eli and play Kyle, he can now hide behind the “punishment” as a way of not having to answer those calls.

    “We don’t tolerate poor behavior as a New York Giant.”

    Lucky break.

  5. This added story line should only add to the plot and make the Giants post-bye Monday Night Football match-up with 49ers absolutely riveting. Country music singing CJ Bethard facing off against the aging Eli Manning who has only held onto his job because his potential replacement ended up in cuffs. When this game is 9-7 with the clock creeping below 5 minutes in the final stanza, ESPN will have America’s full focus.

  6. Again, much ado about nothing. “Disregarding an officer’s instructions” equates to not reflexively saying “yes sir, no sir” like a good little serf. Goodness forbid that a person assert their right to say they did nothing wrong. Furthermore, if you don’t drive exactly as a traffic cop says they’ll charge you “obstructing administration of law”.

    Try exercising your freedoms as a US citizen people, don’t just meekly submit to authority. You’ll feel better about yourself and help your fellow citizens.

  7. This is just too funny. The New York Nightmara Family Crime Syndicate continues to reap the Karma payback for its fraudulent creation of a capped year in an uncapped year and then sought to punish two NFC East opponents who were smarter than the Moribund Mara family.

    I hope this goes on for over a decade. You frauds!

  9. From PFT August 14, 2018:
    “When Browns rookie receiver Antonio Callaway was cited for marijuana possession, coach Hue Jackson decided on a strange form of punishment: He made Callaway play a lot of snaps in the Browns’ first preseason game. Jackson explained that Callaway was asking to come out because he was tired, but Jackson made him keep playing.”

    Perhaps Coach Schurmur can use this as an excuse to get Lauletta into the games without the uproar from the NY media and fans over sitting Eli.

  10. Hypocrites. There talking about consequences and his future with the team. Yet OBJ gets caught on video with a white substance trying to convince a woman whos clearly on that substance, to sleep with his friend, which she clearly doesn’t want to do.

    OBJ was 1 “fine, just stop baggering me” away from spending the next 3-5 years in prison.

    And what did the Giants, Shumur, and the Mara’s do? Nothing. Well besides give him 1 of the richest contracts in NFL history. Making him nearly untouchable for the next 3-5 years.

  11. Eli just gave the Weehawken cops some “game worn gear” and voila! No more QB controversy for the Giants.
