I would feel pretty bad for Flores if he’s gone out on this limb, which took a tremendous amount of courage, because he was under the assumption that he had no shot at the Giants job because Bill Belichick got bad intel and doesn’t know how to text.Am I wrong in saying this case is almost entirely going to hinge on BB's testimony? Who told him the Giants hiring plans, and when? We always assume he's playing 4D chess, all the time. But if someone who didn't really know WTF they were talking about reached out to him, and he jumped the gun in texting whichever Brian he was meaning to text, it falls apart, right? Doesn't seem like tanking and speculation about whether Elway was hungover 3 years ago will be enough to move the needle.
The Giants have clearly refuted both Flores and Belichick’s claims that the decision was made prior to his interview and that his interview was very much for real.
He spent 6+ hours at the facility meeting 13 different members of the staff, front office, and ownership. This wasn’t a meeting at a Marriott on the Jersey Turnpike for an hour or two so they could hire Daboll the next day.
