Joe Judge comes from arguably the most successful franchise in NFL history, working for arguably the most successful coach in NFL history.

If the Giants want to go all-in with Joe Judge, let him have some input into the choice of what is ultimately his boss.

It sounds weird, but he could be more comfortable with someone he has a history with.

Judge has been thrust into the world that is New York and has been really not given a ton to work with.  I am not fully absolving him from blame by no means, but Gettleman did him zero favors with the Marc Columbo hire and Jason Garret for that matter.

How much pull does Judge have to make some decisions?

It has not looked like much as most seem to have come from Gettleman himself.  I certainly do not mean give Judge full autonomy but allow his opinion into the mix. Somebody he is comfortable working for could go along way in allowing him to be successful.

The NY Giants truly need an overhaul with this franchise. it has to start with John Mara realizing that he cannot continue to be the loyal servant that he has been.  I have said before, he can throw as many trash cans as he wants but until he takes some responsibility for his choices of who runs the ins and outs of the day to day the franchise will never again see the heights it once saw.
