It’s time … The NY Giants need to fire Joe Judge
Continuity with next GM
It was recently reported by NFL Insider Ian Rapoport that this season will likely be the last for Dave Gettleman as general manager of the New York Giants.
If that is in fact the case, then it would be wise to not commit to Judge as the head coach to keep the potential GM hiring pool larger.
Look no further than the team that shares MetLife Stadium with the Giants in the New York Jets. After former GM Mike Maccagnan hired Adam Gase, he would essentially get overthrown by Gase, who then got current GM Joe Douglas hired. After just two years of Gase, the Johnson family decided to fire him, while Douglas remained.
Clearly, it’s a mess over there, from top to bottom.
The NY Giants have quickly gone from Super Bowl Champions in 2011 to bottom of the barrel right next to the Jets in just a decade’s time. In order to get out from underneath the garbage they’ve buried themselves under, ownership needs to clean house completely, hire a general manager they trust and let that individual build the coaching staff from scratch.
If the new general manager is inclined to keep someone like defensive coordinator Patrick Graham, or even Judge, for that matter, then so be it, as long as it’s entirely their decision and as long as they’re not influenced by ownership to do so.
In all likelihood, whoever the new GM is will want to start fresh, meaning Joe Judge and company will be out the door.
