Now THIS is one way to fix the New York Giants.

Daniel Jones has been encouraging, but the Giants currently stand at just 2-8 as the Pat Shurmur era appears to be nearing the end. Longtime Jets and Giants writer Darryl Slater of NJ.com came up with one of the most out-of-the-box candidates to replace the dead man walking that is Shurmur. His choice? Dallas Cowboys head man Jason Garrett, who could be on his way out if the Cowboys keep hitting the skids.

Shurmur is now 7-19 as Giants head coach, and is 17-42 overall if you count his days overseeing those illustrious Colt McCoy and Brandon Weeden offenses with the Cleveland Browns.

Garrett, who has gone 82-63 as Cowboys head coach, is by no means Tom Landry, but he's got a decade of experience in this league and has at least proven to be a component, steady force steering a Cowboys team that is always laden with media attention and drama.

If there is EVER a job that requires a steady presence running the show, it's head coach for a New York football team.

The chances of this happening are less than zero, as swapping Dallas' colors for the Giants is a football cardinal sin, but the Giants would be in a better spot with Garrett at the controls instead of Shurmur, whatever you think of Garrett as a coach.
