The New York Giants were demolished on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night football by a final score of 30-10. New York Giants head coach Joe Judge called out offensive coordinator Jason Garrett after the football game was over.
During the press conference, Joe Judge mentioned how he would be frustrated if he was a player too in this football game. Translation: Jason Garrett is on the hot seat and his days are numbered as the offensive coordinator.
The New York Giants have had one of the worst offenses in the NFL for the past two seasons. It is better late than never to make a change. Joe Judge needs to fire Jason Garrett ASAP and promote tight ends coach Freddie Kitchens as the offensive coordinator for the final seven games of the regular season.
It can’t hurt because Joe Judge also knows that he is potentially coaching for his job in 2022. There will be no and, if, or buts about it that there will be a new general manager in 2022. Dave Gettleman needs to be shown the door today, actually right now because he poorly constructed this football team.
Jason Garrett has stunted Daniel Jones’s development and Joe Judge is a 100 percent believer in that. Jones completed 23-of-38 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. He also rushed for 10 yards on three carries. His only touchdown pass was to Andrew Thomas from two yards out in the second quarter. That was the closest they got was a 10-10 tie in the second quarter.
Jason Garrett has no idea how to utilize his wide receivers and tight ends. No one on the roster has more than one receiving touchdown this season. There is talent like Evan Engram, Kyle Rudolph, Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard, and Kenny Golladay, along with Saquon Barkley and Devonte Booker. The offensive line is a mess and there is no doubt about that. However, you have to create better play calling and not be stuck in the 1990s.
Trust me, I will be retweeting Twitter all day today to see if the New York Giants have the guts and the balls to fire Jason Garrett or completely strip him from calling the plays. I see why Dallas Cowboys fans suffered for ten years with him at the helm. That is a decade of pain and torture and I don’t wish that upon my worst enemy.
Daniel Jones knows he is under the microscope for the final seven games. A change in offensive coordinator can potentially help. He was great with Pat Shurmur as a rookie. Jones has fumbling issues and also issues reading a defense sometimes, but no offensive line and no offensive creativity is killing his development and maybe he is just a career backup at best if this can’t be figured sooner rather than later.
Jason Garrett should have not been brought back for a second season. New York Giants fans have had enough of Jason Garrett’s act as the New York Giants offensive coordinator.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) next football game will be on the road against the Indianapolis Colts (6-5) this Sunday.
The New York Giants (3-7) next football game will be at home against the Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) this Sunday.
