For a large contingent of Giant fans offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride had become the bane of their existence. He’s been renowned for calling an at times backwards game that lacked modern era creativity or versatility — and marked by an outright refusal to stray from his play calling comfort zone during a seven-year stint. A stint which (by the way) includes two Super Bowl rings. Alas, there is also a smaller circle of the fanbase that believes Gilbride is being scapegoated, taking the heat for an incompetent offensive line and a rapidly regressing quarterback. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, but there’s little doubt that transition to new offensive concepts is necessary. This does not mean bringing back Mike Sullivan.
Does Gilbride deserve the axe? Tell us how you feel in the comments section.
