Twitter had no chill when it came to New England Patriots offensive assistant Joe Judge following the New York Giants’ stunning playoff victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Judge served as the head coach for the Giants for two seasons, prior to the team hiring Brian Daboll in 2022.
Despite basically having the same team at his disposal, Judge finished his short tenure with the Giants with back-to-back losing records, including a 4-13 finish in 2021, which ultimately led to his firing.
Daboll’s immediate success with the team not only brought Judge into the spotlight, but it also shined a light on the entire Patriots organization as a whole when it comes to coaching. It proved that a good head coach with the right staff in place can do wonders for a football team.
There’s no denying Bill Belichick is one of the greatest coaches to ever do it, but the struggles with Judge and Matt Patricia having a bigger hand in things on the offensive side of the ball is certainly telling.
Here’s what people were saying about it on Twitter.
