Giants coach Joe Judge believes slow start is because ‘fish stinks from the head down’

Giants, Joe Judge, Giants record

It’s not the start to the year the New York Giants were hoping for as they sit at 1-5 and get set to take on the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. Daniel Jones has showed major improvements but one of the big issues has been the injuries that have piled up for New York.

Giants head coach Joe Judge isn’t in the excuse business though, and per ESPN, he’s taking the blame for the slow start to the year.

“There’s your answer. I’m the head coach. It’s my responsibility, point blank,” Judge said Thursday. “Every player on this field, every position group, the execution, it all comes down to me. The fish stinks from the head down.

Despite the slow start for the Giants and it looking like another fizzled out season for Judge in New York, he insists he isn’t feeling the pressure of job security.

“To me, the only time you really feel any kind of pressure and nerves is when you’re unprepared,” he said. “If you’re prepared and you go through the tasks and process at hand and you’re consistent with it, then you go in with confidence.

The road ahead won’t get any easier for the Giants as road matchups at the Kansas City Chiefs and at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers loom over the next month. It starts with getting a win against the Panthers in Week 7.
