Lughead Posted January 26, 2007 Share Posted January 26, 2007 Giants Eye Chris Palmer as Quarterback Coach Posted Jan 26th 2007 8:34AM by Dan Benton The Giants have asked and been granted permission by the Dallas Cowboys to speak with Chris Palmer about their vacant Quarterback coaching position; a position he currently holds with the Cowboys. Palmer has been in the NFL since 1993 in various capacities. He began his career with the New England Patriots under Bill Parcells as their Quarterback coach and eventually became the Head Coach of the Cleveland Browns in 1999. Palmer also spent time as an assistant for Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville from 1997 to 1998; he was the offensive coordinator. Not a bad choice for a Quarterback Coach if you ask me. The guy has tons of experience and has worked with some big named Quarterbacks as well as some young Quarterbacks. As much as I hate to admit it, he did a fine job with Tony Romo this season and has done well with Drew Bledsoe over his career. He also seems to fit the description of what Eli Manning is looking for. "Obviously I've only had one quarterbacks coach in the NFL," said Manning. "I'm just looking for someone who's obviously smart, intelligent. Someone who we can have a good relationship and just really communicate well together and be on the same page with things. Someone who has good drills and is going to be hard on me and coach me and make sure that everything that I'm doing, I'm doing to get better and put me in a position to play better football." Let's hope the Giants can reel Palmer in. Considering Coughlin's connection to him, I'm pretty sure he'll be a Giant within the week. LINK Jason Garrett will be a cowboy at some capacity and Mr. Palmer worked with Romo while he was in Dallas. Even though Romo faulted near the end of the season he did have a good run as Bledsoe's backup ...good enough that he took the starting role. If Palmer can get Eli to move the way Romo did and make him just 50-60% (hopefully more) more accurate whoaaaa baby look out. but on a sad note Jim Finns plans of wearing gloves on his ankles will have to be scrapped.
