No Frank Sinatra in Joe Judge

CHRIS BISIGNANO

The big question leading up to the Arizona Cardinals game was if quarterback Daniel Jones’ right hamstring would be healthy enough to start. Coach Joe Judge insisted all week when talking to the media, that if Jones can do the things he’s accustomed to doing, he would play.

Judge wasn’t kidding. The problem was that Jones wasn’t healthy enough to do the things he’s accustomed to doing during the course of a game.

Zone reads? Nope.

RPOs? Nope.

Running for first downs when under siege because the offensive line couldn’t block anybody with a red cardinal on their helmet? Nope.

Judge quite possibly made his first big blunder as head coach of our beloved Big Blue. He forced something that wasn’t there.

He’ll get no dissent on that. The Giants offense didn’t execute at all. The receivers could not get separation, the offensive line could not block and the play calling by offensive coordinator Jason Garrett was suspect at best (think long pass on third-and-one to Sterling Shepard).
