New York Giants head coach Joe Judge is in panic mode following an 11-minute tirade after their Week 17 loss to the Chicago Bears.
He was uttering words, but he was not communicating.
He tried to justify that the team is in a better situation than last year, even if they’ve won fewer games.
He’s bluffing about what’s going on behind the scenes.
So almost every week opposing NFL coaches do a conference call with local beat reporters. Been going on for decades. And on the week he takes shots at the Washington Football Team, Giants HC Joe Judge has declined the conference call with DC media.

Yes, the Giants have a proud winning culture, as proven by four Super Bowl titles.
But he’s nowhere close to that glorious legacy that Bill Parcells and Tom Coughlin built.
Instead, he’s doing the opposite by painting an inaccurate picture of where the franchise stands at present.
That post-game press conference is so juicy, and luckily, NJ.com published a transcript of Judge’s rants.
Those words show how out of touch he is from reality.
Why Do Bill Belichick’s Former Deputies Act This Way?
Judge served as special teams coordinator for Belichick in New England before becoming the Giants head coach.
It’s no secret that Patriots assistants get high consideration for coaching openings elsewhere.
After all, franchises hope that they can get a slice of Belichick’s success by hiring a person from his coaching tree.
Unfortunately, these coaches bring the Patriot Way to their new teams, especially their behavior.

They think highly of themselves, but their wins do not match their ego.
It’s no secret that Detroit Lions players celebrated when their 2020 season ended because they didn’t have to deal with Matt Patricia anymore.
The current Patriots senior football advisor thought he was infallible even though he finished with a 13-29-1 record in the Motor City.
Now, Judge thinks he can fool the media and casual football fans by talking like his former boss.

He’s talking tough but cannot back up his statements.
Perhaps it’s difficult for him to accept failure because he had much success in New England.
Unfortunately, a lengthy ramble won’t change the general sentiment that he has to go.
Best Quotes From Judge
Referring to “golf clubs in the locker room” for teams out of playoff contention is one of the cringe-worthy moments during his response.
ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky was quick to debunk this claim as part of the 0-16 Lions team in 2008.
Despite the losses, he attested that there were no golf clubs and vacation planning in their locker room.
Then, Judge went on to claim that in terms of the team’s progression, they are “a lot closer where we’re going than further away.”

Sadly, it doesn’t look that way because they won six games last season and only have four this year with one game left.
They’ve also lost their last five games and scored in double digits during that stretch only twice.
There’s also the claim that free agents come to his office, begging to return.
Perhaps there’s some truth to this because of the paycheck alone.
Joe Judge did every Giants fan a huge favor with that embarrassing 11 minute rant. He is being eviscerated by every member of the media. Your move John Mara.

But if these players have a chance to sign with another team, they’d take that opportunity instead.
Finally, Judge mentioned that the Giants is no “clown show organization.”
Unfortunately, the way they take the field is laughable.
They had one touchdown during their last three games and scored 20 total points during that period.
You watch the giants do things and it’s a wonder that Joe Judge’s job is “safe.” They’re the worst coached team in the NFL

Every fallacy he said proves how dysfunctional the Giants’ culture is, and he can’t talk his way around reality.
Bragging about how good things are seem to make him a fool.
