At long last, NY Giants rookie head coach, Joe Judge, will be allowed to get to work at the Giants’ facility.
This is very welcoming news for the NY Giants, as the first-time head coach is already behind the eight ball in terms of setting up protocols and procedures which are a big deal and a big part of what a head coach does.
(News reported by NJ.com)
The NY Giants got terrific news last week when the state of New Jersey allowed sports teams to begin practicing in all capacities, although the NFL is bringing along the process more slowly and only allowing executives, a small amount of team personnel, and rehabbing players into the building.
It’s expected that in the coming weeks the NFL will become laxer in terms of allowing more members of the team and organization to return to work at the facility. although that timeline is not yet known.
One thing that does seem for sure is that the NFL is not going to be allowing any sort of physical practices until training camp officially opens around the end of July. That effectively means there will be no physical rookie or regular mini-camps in 2020.
Still, just getting the players in the building to connect with coaches and go over scheme and the playbook is a huge win for NFL teams when just a few short weeks ago it was up in the air if there would even be an NFL season at all.
An important moment for Joe Judge
You can bet that Joe Judge will be all systems go from the moment he walks in the door Friday, figuring out and making plans to make up for all the lost time the team has already incurred.
This time period will be especially important for Judge and his staff as they are implementing totally new systems on both sides of the ball while they still haven’t had the opportunity to meet with any of the players face to face.
