New York Giants head coach Joe Judge ought to be fired on the spot for his awful third-down play calling against Washington.
Judge has been under fire all season long, as the Giants have failed to reach expectations in his second year in charge. In a rather meaningless game against the Washington Football Team, Judge essentially gave up on a drive.
Now look, Jake Fromm is no Peyton Manning, but at this point what do the Giants have to lose? In front of a half-empty MetLife Stadium, New York punted on a third-down play call…to actually punt. You can’t make this stuff up.
Giants still likely to stick with Joe Judge
Just after Christmas, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Giants intend on bringing back Judge, despite his embarrassing performance as the team’s head coach. To be fair, it has only been two seasons, and the general manager isn’t helping matters.
But what has Judge shown us in his few seasons in charge? At any point, has he inspired his team to victory or proven to be a capable head coach? The man is nothing more than a glorified former special teams coordinator at this point.
Per Schefter, “The Giants believe both Judge and Jones deserve the opportunity to demonstrate their talents next season, even though New York already has been eliminated from the playoffs and has clinched a fifth consecutive season with double-digit losses.”
Enjoy another season of quarterback sneaks on third down and long, Giants fans.
