The New York Giants finally made the decision to part ways with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett on Tuesday, but what do they do now?
Initial reports suggested that Freddie Kitchens would step into the role vacated by Garrett, but head coach Joe Judge said to pump those brakes. Despite the rumors and speculation, that bridge has not been crossed yet.
Who handles what role will not be decided until later this week. For now, Judge says, things will be a collaborative effort.
“We’re going to handle things collaboratively in-house with the offense and we’ll kind of go on as the week goes in terms of specific roles on a game day,” Judge told reporters.
“We’ll have to see as we put the plan together going forward. Obviously, we’re going to do some things and the goal is to score more points, be more productive, so we’ll talk in terms of game planning tonight specifically for the Eagles at this point and see how that looks when we get the call sheet together.”
Asked specifically about Kitchens and who might call the plays, Judge left literally everything on the table — even the idea of him potentially taking over as the play-caller.
“Everything’s on the table in terms of the offense and how we collectively do things,” Judge said.
Judge also added that he feels for Giants fans and doesn’t share in the notion that they should feel any sense of responsibility to be patient.
“I don’t see this as the fans’ responsibility to be patient for anything. It’s our job to work hard and put a product out there that they can be entertained and proud of,” Judge added. “I expect to see an increased level of production (on the field). That’s what I expect.”
With seven games to go, we’ll see if the Jason Garrett-less Giants improve to any notable degree.
