The Giants have played 28 games under head coach Pat Shurmur and have only won seven of those since the start of the 2018 season.
At 2-10, the final four games for the Giants this season will be all about letting young players get playing time, guys such as rookie Daniel Jones.
But those final four games could be about Shurmur's job security, too.
Could the G-men go in a new direction after such a poor season? That doesn't matter to Jones, because the team's poor form is not on one individual, the quarterback said on Monday.
"We all take a lot of responsibility in the way things have gone and how we've played. You certainly can't look to one person or one group or anyone," Jones said via a conference call. "We all have a lot to do with it. I don't feel that way. I have a lot of confidence and appreciation for Coach. We're playing to win each game, and that's the way we've approached the season. We're going to compete as hard as we can."
The Giants will round out their season against the banged up Eagles twice along with the Redskins and Dolphins. Those contests should be winnable games for the Giants, which could help Shurmur keep his gig. It could also help him lose it if the team plays down to bad teams.
Along with winning, progression in Jones' skills will also be pivotal for Shurmur as well.
