New York Giants might fire Joe Judge as their head coach: Report

The Joe Judge era in New York could be over.

Reports are circulating that Judge could be fired as the New York Giants head coach this week.

This stems after the Giants finished the 2021 season at 4-13 following a 22-7 loss to the Washington Football Team. In the game, Judge called perhaps the worst sequence of plays ever from second and third down on their four-yard line: consecutive quarterback sneaks to prevent a safety in the end zone.

If this is it for Judge, he went 10-23 in two seasons and would be the next of the failed assistant coaches Bill Belichick has had that have become head coaches.

Black Monday awaits all of us.
