Just one day after the infamous and yearly NFL Black Monday the New York Giants have fired Head Coach Joe Judge. This decision is a reversal of the team’s original position from yesterday when they announced that they would be keeping the struggling Head Coach. It also comes one day after the announcement that General Manager Dave Gettleman would be retiring. Now the Giants franchise can start over with a clean slate and new people in charge. This will likely make the search for a General Manager easier than it would have been.

During the season many expected this would be Joe Judge’s last season as the Head Coach of the New York Giants. It came as somewhat of a surprise when the team made it clear they would be keeping him heading into next season. Evidently, Giants’ ownership did some reflecting and reversed course on that decision today. It has been a rocky road for the Giants fanbase over the past few seasons.

The Giants franchise has several big decisions to make heading into this offseason. Three decisions loom as the biggest for the franchise that could impact them for the next half-decade or more. The next Head Coach, General Manager, and what to do at quarterback will define where the New York Giants find themselves in five years.
