Outside of Skip Bayless, no one is known more for dropping ridiculous statements quite like Colin Cowherd. Time and time again, he raises eyebrows and makes people speechless with the things he has to say. Now, he’s done so once again, this time talking about NY Giants head coach Brian Daboll leading up to the NFC Wild Card matchup with the Vikings.
Per Cowherd, Daboll powering the Giants to the postseason, their first trip since 2016, has made the front office realize they can’t fire him just yet. Nope, Daboll will be around for two more years and his job is safe.
Yeah, Colin, we know his job is safe. Even if NY didn’t make the postseason, you really think he would have been on the hot seat? Goodness.
NY Giants fans are ripping Colin Cowherd on Twitter for his awful commentary
Daboll is a rockstar in New York and New Jersey. Say the Giants finished the year 9-8 instead of 9-7-1 and missed out on the playoffs. There would actually be riots in NJ outside of the team facility if general manager Joe Schoen even thought about parting ways with Coach Dabes. He has turned the culture around for the organization.
Daboll, along with offensive coordinator Mike Kafka and defensive coordinator Wink Martindale, has been a major blessing. Just about everyone in the national media thought the Giants would finish the season with four or five wins tops, and no one had this team booking a trip to the postseason.
Now, not only are the Giants in, but there’s a good chance they take down the Vikings on Sunday afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium. Daboll, who we think should be the Coach of the Year, has the fanbase believing that anything is possible. On top of that, people really do feel like this team could get back to the Super Bowl sooner than later with Daboll in charge.
To even suggest that Daboll wouldn’t be back with Big Blue had he missed the playoffs in his first year is beyond silly. Cowherd clearly hasn’t been following the situation in New York too closely. Daboll is loved by the Giants supporters and nothing is going to change that. Should the Giants win on Sunday, his legend status will only grow in the area. You might as well build a statue for the guy.
