Matt Patricia prefers Giants' job over Lions'

Peter King of MMQB (Monday Morning Quarterback) offered this take on the potential of Patricia heading to East Rutherford: In Detroit, I hear Pats defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is the choice over Houston's defensive boss, Mike Vrabel-but Patricia favors the Giants.

And according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, "all signs are pointing" to Patricia being the next head coach of the Giants.

Players love Carolina defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who interviewed with the Giants on Tuesday, and he could be the calming guy to fix a divided and mercenary NY team.

The Giants are an organization whose most successful years were built around defense, especially in the Super Bowl era. Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur could be in play there, or with the Giants.

One of those interviews was with New England Patriots defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia.

Patricia will remain in full Bill Belichick, say nothing in any public way-mode until the Patriots' season is over.

This is a significant development with ramifications across the league and in New England.

If the Giants elect to hire Patricia, they will need to have a plan in place for offensive coordinator. If the Patriots advance to the Super Bowl, the Giants can again interview Patricia during the bye week between the conference championship and the title game. From Patricia's perspective, the Giants should appeal in the sense that they have Eli Manning and a high first-round pick.

He would take over for Steve Spagnuolo, the Giants' interim head coach who stepped in after Ben McAdoo was sacked after Week 13 of a nightmare 2017 season.
