Some Lions fans confounded by report Matt Patricia favoring Giants

Some Lions fans confounded by report Matt Patricia favoring Giants

According to the NY Daily News, "all signs point to" the Giants naming Patricia as their next head coach once the Patriots' playoff run comes to an end.

Patricia, 43, interviewed with the Giants on Friday after team representatives traveled to Foxborough to interview he and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur could be in play there, or with the Giants.

Patricia will remain in full Bill Belichick, say nothing in any public way-mode until the Patriots' season is over.

If Patricia does go to the Giants, watch out for Texans assistant and former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel in Detroit. He also thinks Patricia and new general manager Dave Gettleman would be on the same page in terms of putting that strong defensive team together.

The former aeronautical engineer has led New England to a top ten defense in terms of points allowed in each season since being named defensive coordinator in 2012.

A lot of people have speculated Patricia as the front runner to take over as the Lions next head coach, and now the New England Patriots are also planning on losing their highly-touted defensive coordinator to Detroit.

Although the Giants and Patricia cannot make any type of formal agreement until the Patriots' season is over, the spot can essentially be held for him, like the Falcons did for Dan Quinn and more recently the 49ers did for Kyle Shanahan. During that span, NY has had five other coaches: Ray Handley (1991-92), Dan Reeves (1993-96), Jim Fassel (1197-2003), Tom Coughlin (2004-2015) and Ben McAdoo (2016-17).
