Taking over a new NFL team is hard enough, but the things new NY Giants head coach, Joe Judge, has had to deal with before an official practice has even happened are unusually difficult.
Rookie NY Giants head coach has not had an easy go of things since taking over back in January, and that’s being kind to his situation.
After shocking the NFL after getting hired by the NY Giants seemingly out of nowhere, the coach that doesn’t even have any offensive or defensive coordinator experience has had situations come up that most NFL coaches don’t have to deal with in a lifetime; especially not all lumped together in their first or a single offseason.
Despite being relatively unknown in the NFL world, Joe Judge quickly grew on NY Giants fans after dominating his press conferences and seeming to be a true man of conviction that also had an open mind, two things we didn’t get to see out of our last disaster of a head man in charge.
He’s had and will have those convictions tested far earlier on in his head coaching career than I can ever remember seeing a rookie coach having to – save for maybe New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and Hurricane Katrina, although you can make an argument the timeframe and lump sum on incidents are far worse in Judge’s case.
Let’s discuss the arduous circumstances Joe Judge has had to deal with before even getting to meet most of his players as he looks to lead the NY Giants back to prominence.
