While people remember the Giants 9-23 record under Shurmur, he is highly regarded as a coordinator and gives the Broncos a coach that they can pair with second-round draft pick Drew Lock as he develops.
Over the last 2 years, only 5 teams had more 20+yard plays (4.5 per game) than the Giants with Shurmur leading their offense.He has been part of offenses that ranked among the NFL’s top-10 in explosive plays 11 times, including 7 consecutive years on Andy Reid’s staff w/Eagles. https://t.co/xgWGiI8BtH
