Giants to hire Matt Patricia as head coach?

Many believed Patricia would be the Lions' new head coach because he and Detroit GM Bob Quinn, a former Patriots exec, would keep it in the family as products of New England, too.

On top of that, the New York Daily News is reporting that "all signs point" to Patricia signing with the Giants over the Lions.

New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is preparing for Saturday's AFC Divisional Round game against the Tennessee Titans, but reports indicate he will be on the New York Giants' sideline next season.

The Giants are conducting their sixth and final interview with former Broncos RB coach Eric Studesville on Wednesday, but the feeling is Patricia and the Giants may have found themselves a flawless match.

People exhibiting symptoms of the flu are encouraged to first call or visit their primary care providers or urgent care clinics . One factor is invincibility, where people never had the flu or gotten a flu shot, which makes them believe they don't need one.

However, it's Patricia, a NY native and former offensive lineman, that is believed to be favored by new general manager David Gettleman who, according to the Daily News, is keen on fixing the Giants' offensive line and improving the franchise's culture.

"Our report was and is that the Patriots are bracing for Patricia to leave, and that the Patriots believe the most likely destination is Detroit", Florio tells The Big Lead by text message.

The Giants will continue (and possibly conclude) their coaching search on Wednesday with former Denver Broncos running backs/assistant coach Eric Studesville.

While Patricia, 43, doesn't have the head coaching experience Giants co-owner John Mara is seeking, he has been a part of three Super Bowl titles in New England, including two as defensive coordinator. He coached the linebackers (2006-2010) and then the safeties (2011) before officially being named the defensive coordinator in 2012. The Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears and the Giants interviewed McDaniels, while the Arizona Cardinals interviewed Flores. But what matters is what's between Patricia's ears.
