The New York Giants have fired offensive coordinator Jason Garrett following the team's disappointing outing on the offense on Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "We made a decision to move on from Jason Garrett as the offensive coordinator of the New York Giants," coach Joe Judge said.
"Look, I have a lot of respect for Jason as a person, as a coach. He's been a tremendous asset for me as a young head coach. He's helped our development here. He's built very strong relationships in the building with the players, along with other support staff members.
He's done a good job putting the team first. I have a lot of respect and appreciation for everything he's done for us." The Giants have struggled to score points throughout the entire season and coach Judge could take some playcalling duties on offense.
"Everything is on the table," Judge said.
The Giants believed it was time to move on from Garrett
"Ultimately, I'll make every decision based on what's best for the team long term," Judge said.
"I feel we have to be more productive as an offense. Generally speaking, the offense's job is to score points. I don't believe we're scoring enough points. It's my job as the head coach to make sure I give our players an opportunity to go out there and make plays."
The Giants are 9-17 since Judge took over as the head coach before the 2020 season. "One of the things that motivated me to accept this position was the opportunity to help rebuild the Giants into a contending team," he added.
"We knew there would be many challenges. My expectations for our offense were much greater than what our results have been, and I accept full responsibility for that. "I've said all along, I'm responsible for everything on this team.
I'm the head coach. I've never shied away from that. I don't point fingers, so I always start with evaluating myself before anything else." After a 30-10 loss to the Buccaneers, Judge put the blame on coaches and not players.
"You can put that down tonight. Got that?" Judge said after the loss. "You guys can write that tonight. Players have to execute. That is their job, right? It is our job to teach them. It's their job to go out and execute.
"But we've got to make sure we put them in position to have success. That has to be consistent, by the way. So, you can go ahead and write that down. I'm not going to debate that."
