Could Vikings OC Pat Shurmur bring QB Case Keenum to the Giants?

  • Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur will reportedly be the Giants' next head coach

Shurmur has been with the Vikings for the past two seasons and is credited with turning journeyman quarterback Case Keenum into an MVP candidate.

If not for the final play of the game between the Vikings and New Orleans Saints on Sunday, the Vikings would be preparing to lose Shurmur as part of their off-season.

And Donovan McNabb thrived with Shurmur as the Eagles' quarterbacks coach from 2002-08.

Before joining Minnesota, Shurmur spent three seasons as Chip Kelly's offensive coordinator in Philadelphia, taking over as interim head coach when Kelly was sacked with one game remaining in the 2015 campaign.

Ford will invest $11bn in electric vehicles by 2022
This will be a huge increase from the $4.5 billion the automaker announced it would invest by 2020 in December 2015. Ford is to bring a high-performance electric utility vehicle to market by 2020. "For us, it's not just compliance".

Several of the Arizona Cardinals' head coaching candidates remain busy with their teams in the National Football League playoffs.

The rules say coaches still in the postseason can only interview again next week if they had been interviewed once already, but Ian Rapoport tweeted that meant any coach who had been interviewed period, not just by the Titans. The next time Shurmur heads to Philadelphia, it will likely be as the New York Giants head coach. He later returned to Philadelphia as Chip Kelly's offensive coordinator before landing with the Vikings. He served as an interim head coach for the Eagles for a win in 2015.

After seeing what the likes of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have done under Shurmur's tutelage in Minnesota, it's easy to see why Beckham Jr. would be excited to have the Vikings offensive coordinator on board.

Shurmur, 52, has been the Vikings' offensive coordinator since the middle of the 2016 season after Norv Turner abruptly left the team following a 5-2 start. Keeping Spags on as Big Blue's defensive coordinator could be a solution.

Notice 1036 also said that employers could withhold on supplemental wages of up to $1 million at a flat rate of 22 percent. There are also new limits on the mortgage interest deduction, and the child tax credit was expanded.

If the Cardinals miss out on Shurmur, Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks is believed to be next on their wishlist.

In other head coaching search news, the Indianapolis Colts are expected to hire New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as their next coach, according to Rapoport.

Despite the disarray of the Giants' 3-13 2017 season, Shurmur will inherit a team with assets.
