Dan Quinn Interviewing for Giants HC Job on Monday

The thought of losing this is not a pleasant one. But now the have joined the list of suitors, and losing Quinn to one of our rivals would be especially unsavory for the .

Quinn will with the Giants tomorrow after a busy week speaking with other teams about their head vacancies. Dan has met with the Bears, Broncos, Dolphins, and Vikings since the Cowboys' season ended last Sunday.

As a former for the from 2015-2020, Quinn led his team to the in 2016 and another playoff berth the following year. He was fired in midseason after Atlanta started 0-5 in 2020.

Much like when he left the Seahawks in 2015, Quinn has made himself a hot name again thanks to his work as the Cowboys' defensive coordinator. He took a historically bad from 2020 and had them leading the league in interceptions and near the top of the NFL in deflections, opponent completion percentage, and among other categories.

Dan may very well be one-and-done for Dallas, interviewing now with his fifth team and supposedly a top candidate for the Broncos and perhaps others.

The Giants present an especially disturbing potential destination given their longtime with the Cowboys. You can also see why they'd want Quinn; he brings the tough-minded coaching style that attracted them to Joe Judge but also with the experience in the role that Judge lacked.

But while New York's interest in Dan is logical, would it be mutual? Despite admittedly growing up as a Giants fan, would Quinn want to inherit the current mess that their roster is? After the luxury of having prime in Atlanta, does Dan really want to tie his fortunes to ?

Even if it doesn't end up being the Giants, Dan Quinn's 2022 job prospects are increasingly unlikely to be with the Dallas Cowboys.

The opportunity to turn around his favorite team growing up has to be very alluring, despite the mess they are right now. It’d be a great story for the NY press to run with to build up some early goodwill.

Yeah, he’s got to deal with getting a real QB in there. But, he’s still got some very nice pieces to work with on defense in Leonard Williams, Blake Martinez, Azeez Ojulari, James Bradberry, Adoree’ Jackson, Logan Ryan, and Xavier McKinney. If he feels he can get a game managing QB in the short term and create a smothering D out of what he has on hand, he might feel he can make it work until they can find a real QB.

Next question would be whether he wants to operate under the harsh lights of the NY press? It’ll be a big difference between being mostly out of the national spotlight in Atlanta and as a DC in Dallas to being the head honcho in a market like NY. He may not care, or he may even welcome that pressure. But, he might not like the idea at all. Time will tell.
