Sooo…Joe Fucking Judge, Huh?

Anddd just like, the New York Giants hire their third head coach in four years. This time, instead of electing to hire offensive coordinators that had success elsewhere, they thought ‘outside of the box’ and hired the special teams guy for the New England Patriots.

Ok.

I’m assuming the Gillette Stadium concession worker they tried to call in for an interview must’ve ignored their texts.

A lot of the frustration in this hiring has less to do with Joe Judge and more to do with the chaotic Giants front office situation. After a disgusting 4-12 season, Giants ownership fired head coach, Pat Shurmur, while keeping general manager, Dave Gettleman: the man responsible for this awful 4-win roster.

Dave Gettleman has presented himself as a patronizing, out of touch Boomer which was highlighted in his end of season press conference where he claimed that he’s hiring some ‘computer folks’ which was either a condescending way of saying that in the year 2020, he’ll finally attempt to half ass his player evaluation by using analytics like everyone else has been doing for a decade now OR he’s truly an old weirdo that has no idea how to run a football team in the modern era.

So one would imagine that head coaches weren’t in a hurry to throw themselves into that nonsense. It was reported that the Giants were going after Baylor head coach, Matt Rhule, who was announced as the new Carolina Panthers hours before the Giants settled for Joe Judge.

Personally, I think the Giants dodged a bullet missing out on Matt Rhule. Look around the NFL and you’ll notice that there are zero head coaches that had success in college that were able to translate it to NFL success.

The only college coach that comes to mind is Pete Carroll and I wouldn’t say Carroll was really a college coach in USC. That team had NFL players at every position in the early 2000’s and all of them were making millions like NFL players. Reggie Bush’s mom got a new house every time he ran for a first down. Carroll’s always been an NFL coach.

Matt Rhule had a 19-20 record with Baylor. Not totally sure what the big deal was about him. He brought Baylor to the great heights of being ranked 8th in the country. I mean, he was so close to being ranked 7th, ya know.

Why were teams fighting over that?

As far as Joe Judge goes, the man is described as detailed oriented and Bill Belichick-esque which isn’t totally fair considering there’s only one Bill Belichick and none of his assistants ever find success once they leave New England but I think we’ve entered a new era of Belichick assistants.

Guys like Brian Flores and Josh McDaniels seem to have gotten more of the secret formula from Belichick and reports claim that Joe Judge was getting some secret recipes as well, unlike previous years where he was less of a mentor than he appears to be presently.

Literally all Joe Judge needs to do is win more than 4 games and he’ll be a hero in New York. Pat Shurmur went 9-23 in two seasons as the Giants head coach. The NFC East is trash. It wouldn’t shock me if Judge got all 9 of Shurmur’s wins in just one season next year.

But none of that seems possible as long as Dave Gettleman remains in the Giants front office making awful decision after awful decision.

Dave Gettleman is going to give Joe Judge another terrible draft class and more dead cap money. As long as that man is in charge, the Giants will be losers. Sorry, Joe. You’re out of here in two years.
