Sunday was a disaster for the New York Giants. The 29-3 loss to a directionless Chicago Bears team, playing without their prized quarterback Justin Fields, was nothing less than a complete embarrassment. The Mara and Tisch families had to be hanging their heads in frustration. 2021 has been one stumble after the next for the storied New York National Football League franchise. Here are 5 resolutions that the Giants owners have to abide by to turn this ship around.
Giants fans will unquestionably point to multiple deficiencies on each side of the ball. If there are so many problems with the Giants, what happened? Well, let's look at the last playoff season for the Giants, 2016. There was a new head coach, Ben McAdoo. Tom Coughlin was politely sent packing by former general manager Jerry Reese after four dismal years in a row. Eli Manning was the quarterback in 2016. He threw for over 4000 yards and 26 touchdowns. Wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. owned over 1300 of those yards from Manning and had 10 of those touchdown receptions. To many, that was the end of the good times for Big Blue and their fans.
Joe Judge's second season as head coach of the New York Giants didn't exactly start where last season ended. Big Blue won 5 of their last 8 contests to end the season, culminating with a 23-19 victory over the Cowboys to end the head coach's rookie year. This season has not been so kind to the Giants head coach.
I like New York Giants Head Coach Joe Judge. He is old school. Judge studied under an NFL legend Bill Belichick and won 3 Super Bowl rings. How much does that pedigree mean in the National Football League? Joe Judge has never been offensive or defensive coordinator, yet he was hired as head coach of one of the most prestigious professional franchises in all of sports, the New York Giants.
