Monday came and went and the New York Giants did not fire Joe Judge.
That left many fans all over the NFL surprised given the way the team collapsed at the end of the season.
Running back-to-back quarterback sneaks deep in their own territory early during Sunday’s game was a sign they had all but given up.
Giants fans did see a change in leadership as GM Dave Gettleman retired.
That saved him from being fired and a new GM usually means a new head coach.
But the Giants are reportedly taking their time to come to a decision.
NFL insider Mike Garafolo revealed as much Monday night.
From @NFLTotalAccess: No resolution on #Giants coach Joe Judge coming tonight. It’ll be a multi-day process with meetings between him and ownership regarding the direction of the team. pic.twitter.com/mWfmniBFGc

Garafolo explained how Judge met with his team, and how he will have ongoing meetings with ownership throughout the week.
Fans are left wondering what there is to discuss.
Joe Judge Safe For Now
Judge went 4-13 in 2021 after a 6-10 finish in 2020.
He may now be arguing to ownership that Gettleman did not give him a competitive team on the field in either year.
Saquon Barkley is supposed to be a focal point on offense and he looks like a shell of his former self.
Daniel Jones did take some steps forward, but he missed the final month of the season with a neck injury.

Yet this argument could backfire if ownership believes any head coach should maximize the given talent on the roster.
The Giants now have five consecutive losing seasons and may just keep Judge for the sake of stability at this point.
If that does happen, fans may revolt given just how unwatchable the team was the final few weeks of the season.
