'Boomer And Gio': Jason Garrett To The Giants?

By WFAN Sports Radio 101.9 FM/66AM New York

Jason Garrett is on the hot seat in Dallas.

The Cowboys just lost a close game 13-9 to the New England Patriots in Foxborough. Jerry Jones spoke afterwards and didn’t seem too happy with Garrett about the defeat that was significantly impacted by some poor special teams play from the Cowboys.

Boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti kicked off their Wednesday show on WFAN by discussing Garrett and whether he could be an option for the Giants if Pat Shurmur gets fired.

Gio didn’t sound like he was sure that Shurmur should be dismissed.

“Find me a roster that’s comparable in the NFL that’s doing better than what the Giants are doing,” said Giannotti. “That’s the question I would have. Is there a roster comparable to what the Giants have in the NFL right now, with a rookie quarterback and no defense.”

Shurmur’s second year on the job with the Giants has gone similarly to his first year. The team is struggling heavily and is currently mired in a seven-game losing streak that has seen the Giants’ record drop from 2-2 to 2-9.

The Cowboys aren’t anywhere near as bad, as they are in first place in a weak NFC East, but Garrett has never produced results in the playoffs since being hired to the position back in 2011.

All this was started by Sal Licata, who claimed on WFAN the night before that he was the first to mention rumors about the Cowboys' coach possibly ending up in New York.

Boomer thought that maybe Garrett would be better suited to coaching in college football if he did end up getting fired by Jones.

“If Jason Garrett ever got fired, to me, he would be like the perfect college coach,” said Esiason. “He would be the perfect coach to take over like USC or something like that.”

Giannotti added that he hasn’t been surprised by the Giants misfortunes this season, as he predicted they would be a bad team going into the new campaign.

“We were all over the Giants being pretty bad this year. What were the Giants supposed to be?”
