The New York Giants find themselves at 1-5 heading into their Week 7 outing against the conference-rival Carolina Panthers. They sit four games behind the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East and are pretty much already playing out the string in a lost season.
The backdrop here has been the inability of third-year quarterback Daniel Jones to progress under center, primarily due to injuries on the offensive side of the ball.
This unit took another hit recently with news that starting left tackle Andrew Thomas has been placed on injured reserve due to an ankle ailment. The sophomore blindside protector will now miss at least the next three games. He joins stud running back Saquon Barkley and others on the sideline.
To say that the Giants have been a disaster under second-year head coach Joe Judge would be an understatement. He appears to be in over his head right now, as evidenced by the fact that these New York Giants rank 27th in the NFL in scoring (19.0 per game) and 29th in points allowed (29.5 per game).
It’s now time for the Giants’ brass to make that difficult decision. The status quo is not working. It’s time to blow it all up and start anew.
New York Giants must fire Joe Judge, David Gettleman
It was always going to be a tricky proposition for New York to hire a special teams coordinator as head coach. Sure we’ve seen the likes of John Harbaugh have the success making that transition. But it’s an exception to the rule.
In 22 games as New York’s head coach, Judge has done absolutely nothing to prove that he’s worthy of sticking around in Jersey. The Giants have posted a 7-15 record during this span. He’s continually been out-coached and outwitted. His guarantees have not come to fruition, and there’s no evidence that they will.
