Giants’ Joe Judge reveals what Daniel Jones can learn from Tom Brady
The New York Giants are expecting big things from last year’s 6th pick in the NFL Draft, Daniel Jones. The sophomore quarterback will be expected to lead a much improved offensive line, alongside new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
The Giants’ newly-minted head coach Joe Judge will be tasked with turning his team’s fortunes around this season. Having learned under a great coach in Bill Belichick, Judge is hoping to bring his experience with the Patriots with him to New York. Judge also had the privilege of working with six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady and wishes to unload his knowledge with the young Jones.
“The biggest thing I ever observed from Tom in my eight years with him was that his preparation was phenomenal, but his accountability is what really separated him from a lot of other players,” Judge said in an interview with SNY earlier this week. “His stature in the league was such that he could’ve just taken that role of superstar, but he always came in every day, put his nose the grindstone and just worked tirelessly. That, to me, is something I’ll always take away from being with Tom for those eight years.”
Judge said he was impressed with how Jones organized his teammates on offense during offseason workouts earlier this year. Jones had mixed reviews for the Giants in his rookie season, managing 24 touchdown passes but also 12 interceptions and 11 fumbles.
The team will be hoping to improve on their 4-12 record in the previous season.
