Giants HC Joe Judge is supposed to return in 2022

It is widely believed that the Giants will not fire Joe Judge after the season.

Wholesale change is needed in East Rutherford. 4-9 Giant is in a state of flurry and, next is Sunday lose for the Chargers, cemented another losing season – the organization’s fifth consecutive season.

But one of the key changes many would like to see may not materialize.

Based on Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the belief is that the Giants will not fire the head coach Joe Judge at the end of the year. Despite the popular issues that Judge has been fronting since joining the team in 2020, co-owner John Mara will likely offer him a third season.

“A couple of weeks ago I told you there was no chance for him to be sacked,” a league source told Vacchiano. “Now? Even after (the team’s recent loss dropped to 4-9), I would probably still say ‘No chance.’ [Mara] love Judge. He thinks he has found [Bill] Belichick or [Bill] Parcells. And it’s not like he’s giving up on another coach this early.”

I’m sorry… what does he think he’s found? Judge has gone through his first 29 games 10-19, and is he being compared to two of the greatest head coaches in the league’s 102-year history? Is this because Judge is a disciple of Belichick, a disciple of Parcells? Is that the norm at this point?

When the source ended their statement with “Give up another coach soon,” they were comparing Judge’s current tenure with that of Ben McAdoo and Pat Shurmur. The first was sacked after less than two full seasons (he was shortlisted for only 12 games in 2017) and the second was sent out following unsuccessful 2018 and 2019 campaigns.

Mara doesn’t seem to want to continue to initiate revenue while the organization tries to dig itself out of this deep, dark, and ugly hole. He wants to continue to be patient, but why? The league is changing, and in the midst of that change, patience has become an outdated trait.

Just look around the NFL – teams that make changes and upgrades when absolutely necessary often find success faster than some of the remaining patient organizations.

The Cardinals, in 2018, used the 10th overall pick on quarterback Josh Rosen and parted ways with him after a single season to draft Kyler Murray. Rosen is now a reserve and on his various fifth team while the Cardinals are among the best in football.

The Browns, after six wins in the 2019 season with then-head coach Freddie Kitchens, realized they had made a crucial mistake, fired him, switched to Kevin Stefanski and made it to the knockouts. for the first time since 2002 the following year.

Then you have the Giants, who feel a season or two is too small for the sample size to legitimately judge; who value building continuity over attracting the right people in East Rutherford to do their jobs correctly.

Judge has been the head coach for a total of 29 games. That’s 29 weeks of practice, game planning, film research, installation, and long nights at the office, all of which add up to 10 wins.

He hasn’t fulfilled the promises he made in his introductory press conference 23 months ago. Will he ever?

Also, if the Giants want to put themselves on the right path, a clean sweep is required. general manager Dave GettlemanHis departure – whether it was through retirement or the ownership firing him – is imminent. This is another reason why Judge has to leave after 2021.

The Giants made a mistake after 2019 when they fired Shurmur, kept Gettleman, and then tried to make it work with Gettleman and Judge.

Ownership must find a new general manager (preferably someone outside the organization) and let GM choose its own head coach and quarterback (if they decide to add Daniel Jones not a continuing answer).

You can’t keep overlapping general managers and head coaches – it doesn’t work after 2019 and the same catastrophic story will repeat itself if John Mara decides to continue down that path.

Gettleman is almost out of the building – Judge must follow.
