The vacant seats should scream from the top of their lungs to the Giants’ ownership of the franchise’s regret, and the head coach who just finished giving him and his fans a one-season stint.
On a gray and gloomy day at what turned out to be MetLibrary Stadium – the Bronx cheered four times for an obscure offensive tackle, Corey Cunningham, and declared the Clown-Show offense eligible and compulsory Boo Birds, and … it’s just, Jake From 22-yard TD pass to Darius Slayton – An air of change and outrage shouted in the direction of John Mara and Steve Tisch.
A new GM will replace Dave Gettleman and the new GM should have the authority to hire his own head coach.
Joe must go.
It wasn’t Steve Cohen’s Mets, nor Julius Randall giving Joe Judge an ole thumbs-down on Sunday.
If he was a recruiter and sack for the New York Football Giants, the judge’s key card would not work in the future.
Many Giants fans are lucky to be away from Washington 22, Giants 7 … although one fan wore a brown paper bag over his head and wrote that Joe was a Judge fan club. An empty medium Pepsi bottle is attached.
Jury verdict on jury: guilty.
Guilty in a court of public opinion.
Joe must go.
“Ultimately, it’s not good enough,” the judge said.
“Fans deserve better.”
Your record is what you say it is, and the head coaches will not tell you what you are. Or maybe one day.
The Giants 4-13, and the judges can crystallize the case to keep their job, during which Jake Fromm drove the keeper in the second and 11 from the Victory formation by a 3-yard line, and again at third-and-9.
The judge said when he looked at Mara and Tisch two years ago and imagined young Bill Parcells and Tom Coughlin:
“I’m old school, it’s about the physical mentality. We will be putting on the field a product that this city and the people of this region will be proud of as this team represents the area. We play fast, play on the slope, play aggressively. We hit your nose for 60 minutes.
After the bitterness he said:
“We’re going to give space to the punt.”
While most of the rest of the leagues are running Tesla, the giants are running a broken edsel that looks like an eternity. Or a big blue horse and buggy.
The Boobyards are not scaled to ownership, as they are disinterested in a team that has lost its last six games in an incomplete fashion and finished 4-13.
“The crowd is our customers,” said the late Wellington Mara, late in the 2003 season. “When they leave, it’s the same thing as someone calling or writing and saying, ‘You’re not doing what I want to do. The message comes out loud and clear. It tells me that we need to improve the product.’
There is a disturbing disconnect between what the Giants fans fear on the day of the game, and what the judges demand from Monday to Saturday in the locker room and meeting rooms and practice grounds.
You don’t tell us this is any clown-show organization, you show us.
Most fans are crazy as hell and can’t take it anymore. And who can blame them?
This is the part where the judges got their infamous 11-minute rant long ago: “We have to succeed. This is a manufacturing business.
After two seasons the judges’ production business is up 10-23. “Winning isn’t all, but is it the same thing?” Who said that?
The judges will be a fountain of football knowledge. A keen football guy. When the 2020 season came to an end, the Giants brass was convinced they were the CEO and leader they wanted from the end of the Coughlin era. At the end of the mid-season, Mara believed he was the right coach. Gettleman believed the judges would get more from their young draft picks than Pat Shurmur did. Nick Saban and Bill Belichick are dependents and everything.
But the culture, oh that culture: there are no struggles on the Giants sideline. Not one. And the judges were too busy demanding the return of field calls or texts from former Giants players.
Whatever he was selling, the players weren’t buying, or the judges’ coaches weren’t the teachers they vowed to hire … before the dismissal of OL coach Mark Colombo and OC Jason Garrett this season.
Once Daniel Jones stepped down, it was argued that the jury was basically tying one hand behind his back. But the lack of competitiveness is unacceptable. How could a $ 72 million guy Kenny Gollade fail to catch a TD pass?
“Maybe there are some things I learned this year that shouldn’t be done,” the judge said. “You touch that hot plate. You learn it’s hot. Will you touch it again?”
He was speaking at work two years ago. What can the owner say now to keep it up? How can he sell him to the paying public now? Does he only see progress?
“It’s always a crash landing except for one team,” the judge said.
But some crash landings are worse than others. The Giants’ last four crash landing translates to 22 wins against 59 defeats and the level of collateral damage they’re paying now. But a judge was appointed to wait for the giants in the right direction. Too many Giants fans have lost faith in him. Are crazy as hell and can’t take it anymore. And who can blame them?
A broken team. Broken promises.
Joe must go.
