Joe Judge aces his initial presser as Giants head coach. Joe Judge says he's bringing an old school philosophy to Giants
Co-owner John Mara said Judge was the “most impressive” coaching candidate he had ever interviewed in his life, and as it turned out, that likely wasn’t hyperbole."
“I want this team to reflect this area,” Judge said. “Blue collar, hard work. It’s in your face. We’re not going to back down from anybody.”
In the end, like the Empire State Building, Judge says you can’t build a successful program by washing the windows, you do so by setting a foundation and adding a piece at a time. Accordingly, the Giants will be returning to the basics on his watch, which is something the team has struggled with in recent years.
“You can’t get by with new gimmicks or new schemes and think you re-invented the wheel. The same things win football games that have always won football games. Fundamentals,” Judge said, preaching toughness and accountability.
