Joe Choose shoots KO’d Giants away after Eagles’ loss
New York Giants head coach Joe Judge didn’t hold back on Monday, a day after the Philadelphia Eagles apparently missed their chance to beat the Washington Football team, ending the Giants’ last chance to reach the playoffs .
With a final playoff spot to be decided on Sunday evening, Washington scored a 20-14 win in a game in which Eagles head coach Doug Pederson moved from quarterback Jalen Hurts to Nate Sudfeld in the second half, who has not yet been thrown had a pass in an NFL game since 2018. The Giants were poised to move forward with an Eagles win.
The judge was not amused.
“To disregard the effort everyone has made to make this season a success in the National Football League, disregard the game by going out there and not playing against each other for 60 minutes and doing everything we can to help these players To help win, we will never do it. ” that as long as I’m the head coach of the New York Giants. “Judge said.
The judge never mentioned the Eagles by name, but rarely had to.
Pederson later said he was training to win the game, but the Eagles took advantage of the defeat and finished sixth overall in next year’s NFL draft.
During a busy 2020 season, Judge referred to Giants players who had decided to sign up and play while paying tribute to the sacrifices the decision required.
“For me, you never want to disregard these players and their efforts or respect the game,” said Judge. “The sacrifices they made to come to work each day and test before coming in, to sit at intervals, wear masks and have shields over those masks to go through extensive protocols, in unconventional ways travel to receive text messages at 6:30 a.m. telling them the workout would be canceled (and) we need to do a virtual day. “
The judge went a step further and mentioned the sacrifices that fell on the players’ families.
“To tell (players), please don’t have your family for Thanksgiving, please avoid Christmas parties. We know it’s your wife’s birthday. Let’s make sure we postpone this until the off-season,” said the judge. “There are a number of sacrifices that have been made by all the players and coaches in this league. There are a number of sacrifices that go along with family members and those associated with them.”
While the Giants had a chance to earn their way to the playoffs on the field, they only won six games throughout the season, including three losses in their last four games. New York took a 2-0 lead against Washington Football Team, but Washington won NFC East with just seven wins.
“So we’re not going to make excuses as an organization, not now, never,” said Judge of the team’s fate, which was due to a game between rivals in the division. “We had our options.”
