- Interesting formation.

- I mean, really, you're at the 4-yard line, and you don't feel comfortable enough in your offense to be able to run a traditional play?

- And this is sad.

- I mean, that is just a complete lack of confidence and faith of your offense to be able to execute.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

JARED QUAY: The Joe Judge era in New York has come to an end.

- Finally.

JARED QUAY: The Giants fired Judge after just two seasons. As the first time head coach, Judge record was just 10 wins and 23 losses.

- Yikes.

JARED QUAY: Usually teams fire coaches and GMs on Monday following the last game of the regular season, but not the Giants. Maybe they wanted their firing to be extra special. You know, hog the entire spotlight. Or, maybe when they saw Brian Flores come on the market, they started thinking.

BART SIMPSON: Upgrade. All right.

JARED QUAY: No, probably Sally Jenkins' column on the Washington Post is what did it. Because my God, even Judge would vote to fire himself at reading that bloodbath.

- Boom. Roasted.

JARED QUAY: The NFL is a tough place to work, and you never know how long you're going to be gainfully employed there. You've got to make that money while you can. In Tampa's regular season finale, Rob Gronkowski was one catch away from earning a million dollar bonus.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

- (SINGING) Ducktales. Woo.

JARED QUAY: So naturally he had to do some sideline deal making.

ROB GRONKOWSKI: Let's go. I need one more.

TOM BRADY: One more catch?

ROB GRONKOWSKI: Yeah.

If don't get the seventh catch, I have to go get a real job.

JARED QUAY: Who can resist that giggle? Not Tom Brady.

- What does that mean? Cha ching. Gronkowski has his catch bonus.

ROB GRONKOWSKI: Tom, good pass, dog.

TOM BRADY: Thanks, baby. I had to get ya.

ROB GRONKOWSKI: Thank you. Thank you, dog.

DONOVAN SMITH: You just got a milli?

ROB GRONKOWSKI: Yeah, I got a milli.

DONOVAN SMITH: You just a milli. Hey!

ROB GRONKOWSKI: Oh, I got a milli, and we going-- where we going?

DONOVAN SMITH: To the city.

JARED QUAY: Robbie G got that milli.

DR EVIL: $1 million.

JARED QUAY: Usually I'm not really hyped for other people making millions of dollars, but I'm happy for Gronk. He's lovable. Who doesn't love Gronk?

HANK HILL: Like a big old stuffed teddy bear.

JARED QUAY: But man, I need to find me a friend like Tom Brady, someone who will help make me rich, and if I get fired from my job, will help me find a new gig and let me couch surf at his place while I'm doing it.

OTTO MANN: I can still crash here, right?

- That's what TB12 did for Antonio Brown, who ain't making his milli because he quit slash got fired from the Buccaneers.

VINCE MCMAHON: You're fired.

JARED QUAY: But AB has been busy, though. Dude was hanging out with Kanye last night. Why 'Ye be looking like a Madame Tussauds wax figure though? You sure that's really him?

- You need a wax, Larry.

JARED QUAY: I love how AB just go hops. He went from Tom Brady one day to 'Ye the next.

- Who's next? Huh?

JARED QUAY: If AB's kicking it with 'Ye in LA, you know these two are talking business. Maybe an album collaboration. Could you imagine what the recording session would be like?

- Insane.

JARED QUAY: Yo, now forget the album, I can't wait for them to do a tour together, because you know that's not catching all the cities. I mean, they might have 40 cities scheduled, but they're getting them maybe seven.
