The Pat Shurmur Watch has moved into the “we’ll just have to wait and see” phase.
Those were the words Shurmur himself used to describe his tenuous hold on his job after Monday night’s 23-17 overtime loss to the Eagles, a ninth consecutive defeat for the Giants. The good news? It shouldn’t be that long of a wait.
The season ends in 18 days, and there is little indication that Shurmur will be able to do anything in that time frame to sway what ownership is thinking about his performance or his future with the team. The Giants will almost certainly wait until after the Dec.
