Five Questions As Islanders Open Training Camp

Shurmur, 53, earned a terrific opportunity with the Giants but also faces significant pressure right away. Gettleman’s offseason moves were geared toward winning now, not in two or three years. To do that, Shurmur brings a new offense and is determined to positively impact the team’s culture, preparation and results. How he handles player communication, holdouts, flare-ups, and the management of a roster with players who undermined predecessor Ben McAdoo will set the tone for his expectations and the team’s operation come fall. There also have been a ton of player additions and subtractions to this roster, so he faces the challenge of molding a roster with high turnover into a close-knit group. Shurmur already has demonstrated that he is not afraid to tell the players who’s boss: he publicly chastised 2016 All-Pro safety Landon Collins for speaking out of turn about teammate Ereck Flowers’ early offseason absence; he also spoke to DT Damon Harrison immediately at June’s mandatory minicamp about his helmet swing at rookie offensive lineman Will Hernandez.
