The judge will take over a New York Giants team that went 4-12 last season under head coach Pat Shurmur, who was fired last week. The Giants have made the playoffs only one time since winning the Super Bowl in 2012.
Joe Judge strength is in his command; he has the ability to lead and be the one at the front of the room. And if you don’t believe me, you can trust Bill Belichick on that. His actions over the last five years demonstrate how he feels on Judge.
In 2015, Belichick elevated Judge to special teams coordinator—the first time he’d entrusted that area, one he sees as vital, to a young guy during his time in New England. Belichick inherited Brad Seely, who had a decade of prior experience as an NFL special teams coordinator when he got to New England in 2000. When he lost Seely after 2008, Belichick replaced him with Scotty O’Brien, who’d been his special team’s coach in Cleveland.
