Joe Judge on Giants’ offense: no ‘quick fix’
The New York Giants are moving forward with Joe Judge as their next head coach and he’s focused on improving the offense. While it would be ideal for the offense to immediately improve, Judge realizes it isn’t going to happen overnight.
“We’ve got to build a foundation [on offense] this year, OK? This isn’t about a quick fix,” Judge said. “This isn’t about getting somebody in here who’s got some magic solution or some sexy offensive name in the paper in terms of, you know, what they may be running. This is about finding someone who’s consistently performed, who’s gotten the most out of his players, different players, over the course of time, in different circumstances, and that we can lay that base for our players to build on for years to come.”
Recently, Judge added Jason Garrett to his coaching staff as the team’s offensive coordinator. Prior to taking the job, Garrett spent 10 seasons as the head coach of the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys.
Now, Garrett will be tasked with putting together an effective offense for the Giants—his former competitor. Despite their dismal record in recent seasons, there is a ton of talent on New York’s roster. But without a doubt, the most important piece is quarterback Daniel Jones.
The Giants selected Jones with the sixth overall pick in last year’s draft. Even though New York lost 12 games in 2019, Jones flashed some potential as a franchise quarterback in the NFL.
During the regular season, the Giants had the 23rd-ranked offense in terms of yards per game. Some coaches would want to try finding a solution that could fix the issues with a snap of a finger. However, Judge appears to be taking a patient and methodic approach with New York’s offense.
