Giants can’t be left at the coaching altar this time.

There was an unsettling time in Giants history when they were turned down by Tom Coughlin then Dave Wannstedt, and Dan Reeves referenced his two older sisters at the introductory press conference and said sheepishly: “I was my mother’s third choice.” That was back in 1993, after the Ray Handley debacle, and this is after...

That was back in 1993, after the Ray Handley debacle, and this is after the Ben McAdoo debacle.

And the New York Football Giants should never have to settle for any third or fourth choice.

Once Patriots-Titans on Saturday night and Vikings-Saints on Sunday night are over, the Giants have to make their move.

He who hesitates is lost.

Enough dilly-dallying. Stop twiddling your thumbs.

A Patriots victory and Vikings defeat would mean Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is available to be hired.

Make him an offer he can’t refuse so he doesn’t take the Cardinals job and leave you jilted at the head-coaching altar.

If the Patriots and Vikings advance, make that wink-wink agreement with the man you covet.

Patricia reportedly won’t decide until the Patriots season ends, which could be as late as Feb. 4, Super Sunday. If true, the Giants simply cannot afford to wait for him to make up his mind.

Sorry, Bill Belichick is the only head coach worth waiting for.

The Giants are a plum job — second-overall pick in the draft, patient and committed ownership, winning tradition, there is no better place to win — that prospective candidates should kill for.

He who hesitates is lost applies on both ends.

Matt Chatham has watched Patricia grow from a pup. Chatham was a former Patriots and Jets linebacker who now is an NESN analyst and ESPN college football color guy and host of “The Real Thing Patriots Podcast.” I asked him whether Patricia fits the bill of CEO as expressed by Giants general manager Dave Gettleman.

“I don’t know what that means,” Chatham told The Post. “They get a roomful of 50 guys who either believe in him or not believe in him, and I think Matt’s that kind of guy.”

What makes him that kind of guy?

“It’s just more qualitative than something you can measure,” Chatham said. “You just sit in a room with him for a while, you go through the fire with the guys enough times. With guys who have been through there that have sort of gone bottom to top, is the intense and immense amount of pressure that’s put upon them by Coach Belichick. I think ultimately that helps them.

“Back to the whole CEO idea. You might be persuaded to think that that means the guy that handles the press conferences the best, the guy that’s most adept at that or the guy that has the sort of wink-wink personality to him. I think that stuff counts so much less than whether or not you build a game plan that a bunch of other pros can see through and find out whether or not that’s actually smart to do when they go out and try to execute it.

“And I think where Matt is gonna shine is building plans, convincing guys that it’s the right plan, and when there’s moments when things don’t go well, he’ll own it, he’ll have as high of a standard for himself as he will for anyone else in the room. I think that’s important. He’s a very accountable dude. When he screws up … you see that with some coaches, they’ll screw up and there’s a lot of blame shifting. [New England] has really been a place where everyone’s held accountable and I think Matt’s that kind of dude. It’s hard to explain. You just kind of be around it. Guys come and go, and I think Matt does have something special where guys can buy into what he’s selling.” He remembers Patricia as an offensive coaching assistant, then assistant offensive-line coach, long before his rise as Belichick’s trusted defensive coordinator.

“Matt just had something about him that guys really connect with him, and I think guys cheer for him to continue to advance,” Chatham said. “I think one of the things that is really underappreciated about the job that Matt does there is it can be one of the more complex defenses out there, just in the breadth of things they do. They’re willing to do whatever they feel is necessary. It puts more stress on the teacher. … The guy who implements it, the guy that has to teach it, the guy who’s largely responsible for getting it to the best possible finished product by December, that’s Matt. That is not an easy job.”

Nor is it an easy job winning over Tom Brady. Chatham understands why McDaniels had been able to do it.

“When you have hyper-competitive people that you have to coach, that you have to be in charge of, if you’re not hyper-competitive yourself then you can railroaded a little bit,” Chatham said. “You have to be able to earn their respect. You have to be someone who can step up. Because if you’re just biding time, if you’re just calling plays and drawing plays and don’t have a similar fire, then somebody as insanely competitive as Tom, it won’t work. He has to earn your respect.”

Chatham referenced Brady’s “Tom vs Time” docu-series quote: “If you’re going to compete against me, you better be willing to give up your life — because I’m giving up mine,” and added:

“If you’re gonna coach him, you’re gonna have to be able to prove to him that you’re willing to give it all, too, and Josh is definitely an all-hours-of-the-night kinda guy, and he’s a very family-oriented dude. So to be able to pull off those things, which Tom does as well, that’s how you gain his respect.”

“Josh’s biggest thing is energy,” Chatham said. “Josh has like an exuberance, he’s extremely competitive. He’s fiery. I think you can see that with the back and forth with him and Tom. He’s more than willing to give it as well as take it.”

Belichick’s sidekicks are well-rounded. McDaniels was a defensive assistant in 2002 and worked with the defensive backs in 2003.

“You can pick up pretty quickly on when a guy has a much better sense of one side of the ball or the other, or they speak from one sort of perspective very strongly and they’re a little weak on another,” Chatham said. “That’s probably the thing I think you’ll get most from both of these two that they really just understand the ins and outs of all of it. And I think that’s helpful when you’re gonna be a head coach. Josh, much like Matt, is just a really bright football guy.”

Memo to Giants:

Don’t sit. Get off the pot.

Make your move.

It’s important to get it right.

You can’t get it right if you get left out.
