Joe Judge’s case to retain his office is becoming increasingly complex.
The giants are heading straight for another accident to fall into another lost season, and Judge knows. Following the embarrassing 29-3 defeat to the Bears on Sunday, the Giants’ two-year-old head coach spoke 11 minutes (or word of reference, depending on where you fall in the game of appreciation) to protect the team, its strategy, players and more.
The referee provided the team’s cultural protection – and dismissed the losers from the “fear behind the microphone” who shot their players – but one definite fact was: The former players called him “twice a week” saying he wanted to. he would also sign with the giants even though he was “paid somewhere.”
Joe Judge says the players who were in the team last year still call him twice a week to tell him how they wish they would still be giants, even if they are paid elsewhere.

As for the next step, let me tell you right now, I know we are much closer to where we are going than we are far away. I can tell you that right now. I can tell you that we have a lot of players here, who have been free next year, who are in my office every day, begging me to come back. I know that. I know that. Or the players we trained last year, who call me twice a week, tell me that, they wish they were still here, even if they were paid elsewhere.
It is not clear who the Judge means: A list of well-known Giants who left the group for free because the big money is so small. Instead, defensive defense Dalvin Tomlinson is one of a handful of free Giants who left to take part in the big deal, leaving questions about who exactly he is, the Judge says.
(If you really want to see all the noise, you can look here.)
The judge has been under scrutiny for several weeks and the team is failing to do very well in anticipation. Sunday’s defeat was the worst, with the team only going 24 yards (reduction-10 net) against the other worst team in the league, with their own coach questions.
Senior manager Dave Gettleman is expected to lose his job, with recent reports suggesting Giants brass could stick with the Judge (10-22 in two seasons) and appoint a new GM who is well-versed and coached.

Meanwhile, a loss of five in a row with two numbers puts the Judge a little bit on fire. Sounds like a teacher knows, too.
