  • The Giants Shurmur should tap for reborn leadership council

    Excerpt: "Pat Shurmur has been The Great Communicator, determined to build relationships with every one of his players, which means he is the right man at the right time to put the New York Football Giants back together again.

    The Post has learned that Shurmur, once he learns more about his players, plans on forming a Leadership Council to act as his liaison with the rest of the locker room. It paid dividends, you might remember, until the last few years, for Tom Coughlin.

    Safety Andrew Adams, asked if there was a Leadership Council last season under Ben McAdoo, said: “We had captains (Eli Manning, Jonathan Casillas, Zack DeOssie), and then we had understood leaders who would say stuff.”

    But nothing formal? “Not to my knowledge,” Adams said.

    “We just kinda gravitated to 10 (Manning), a couple of other guys in the locker room,” Evan Engram told The Post, “but it wasn’t really appointed.”

    A veteran committee that has the head coach’s ear and vice versa can make a difference during turbulent times.

    The Post, willing to assist, nominates the following Giants to Shurmur’s 2018 Leadership Council.

    WR Odell Beckham Jr.: It is mandatory that the highest-paid receiver in football deserves a seat at the table. No. 13 is beloved by teammates, and ownership and management are hopeful he is growing up. Beckham will embrace a leadership role. The seat will be waiting for him in the event that negotiations stall.

    QB Eli Manning: A wealth of knowledge, wisdom and class. But you already knew that.

    Long-snapper Zak DeOssie: A two-time True Blue Super Bowl champion like Manning. A second-generation Giant whose father Steve was on the Super Bowl XXV champions. A voice of reason and maturity who would represent the special teams.

    LT Nate Solder: It is mandatory that the highest-paid offensive lineman in football (four years, $62 million) deserves a seat at the table. As good as it gets from a character standpoint, and a two-time Super Bowl champion in his seven seasons with the Patriots. Already tutoring Ereck Flowers, and willingly." Read more...

    That is a very good list. I don't know if I would change anyone on the list. I'm very glad to see Shurmur bringing this back.
    LT (132.5) -> Strahan (141.5) -> Osi (65) -> Tuck (60.5) -> JPP (50) -> ???

      McAdoo was such a dope....the team was a rudderless ship when he was the HC
      No leadership counsel ....what did Ben McAdoo even do when he was here ...besides purchase used suits that don't fit

        That list is all offensive players. Need to add some defensive players like Collins, Ogletree, Jennings, Snacks.

            I'm thinking he meant Jenkins.
            sigpic Verbally I'm untouchable like Eliot Ness.

                Correct. Darn phone word correction.

                  I think that based on performance, leadership abilities, maturity level, and best exemplifying Giants pride, that a new group of team captains be selected. Eli is a quiet leader & not a in your face type leader like Brady/Rogers & even Peyton was. That's why Tiki said it was "comical" watching Eli try to be a leader. I wouldn't mind seeing a new group of Giants be selected team Captains this yr & it should be earned on a yearly basis, not just handed out based on longevity.

                    So no defensive guys?

                    Snacks needs to be on there.....Make sure Landon Collins does not get a seat at the table. Him and Odell need to show me more off the field. I'd make them alternates
