EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The New York Giants cleaned the house and sacked trainer Joe Judge the day after General Manager Dave Gettleman resigned.

The Giants announced the move late Tuesday afternoon, ending some brief speculation that the owners were getting a new one Hire General Manager and let him determine the forty-year-old coach’s fate.

Judge set a 10-23 record in two seasons, including an embarrassing 4-13 mark last season. The campaign ended with a six-game streak in which the offense did next to nothing as quarterback Daniel Jones was sidelined with a neck injury.

Co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch said they thought it was best for the Giants to go in a different direction after five seasons in a row with double-digit losses.

The Giants have reached the playoffs once since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012. They’ve gone through four coaches in the past six seasons, starting with Ben McAdoo in 2016, interim coach Steve Spagnuolo, Pat Shurmur in 2018, and Judge, who was hired in 2020.

Mara said he had signed up on Monday and met Richter on Tuesday and informed him of the decision at the second meeting.

“Before the start of the season I said that I wanted to feel good about the direction in which we played our last game of the season. I can’t say that, that’s why we made this decision, « said Mara.

As a former Patriots special team coordinator who was mentored by Bill Belichick in New England and Nick Saban in Alabama, Judge promised a tough one to bring die-hard kind of football back to the region. It was the kind of football Bill Parcells and Tom Coughlin taught building four champions.

There was no doubt the Giants played hard under Judge. They never gave up. They just haven’t won enough, especially this season which was marked by at least a dozen end-of-season injuries. The O-Line lost two starters in the first two weeks of the season, and lead tackler and linebacker Blake Martinez dropped out early.

Richter seemed to be uniting the Giants. There was little opposition. He repeatedly said that he would change his mindset and that this was part of the process to create a winner.

Now the new general manager will hire another coach to try and turn the Giants around again.

« This will be a full search for our next general manager, » said Mara after Gettleman’s retirement. « We’re looking for someone with exceptional leadership and communication skills to oversee all aspects of our football operations, including player staff, college scouting and coaching. » The Giants have already compiled a list of nine GM candidates they’d like to interview including longtime assistant general manager Kevin Abrams. He could be hard to sell to fans as he’s been associated with the organization for more than two decades. The team has made the playoffs once (2016) since winning the fourth Super Bowl in February 2012.

The others on the list are Bill’s Assistant General Manager Joe Schoen; Tennessee Director of Player Staff Monti Ossenfort; Titans VP of Personnel Ryan Cowden; Chiefs Chief Executive Director of Player Staff Ryan Poles; Cardinals VP of Player Personnel Quentin Harris, Cardinals VP of Professional Personnel Adrian Wilson, 49ers Assistant General Manager Adam Peters and 49ers Director of Player Personnel Ran Carthon.

Giants fans should know Carthon. The 40-year-old is the son of former full-back Maurice Carthon, who was a member of the Parcells Super Bowl winning teams in the 1986 and 90 seasons.

Ran Carthon was a running back in Florida and had a brief NFL career with the Colts and Lions. He was hired as a scout by the Atlanta Falcons in 2008, joined the Rams as director of player staff in 2012, and joined the 49ers in 2017. STEELERS: Pittsburgh could be almost healthy if they travel to Kansas City to watch in on Sunday play off the opening round of the playoffs against the AFC West Champions Chiefs.

Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday running back Najee Harris, cornerback Arthur Maulet, left tackle Dan Moore Jr. 12-5.

Harris played most of Sunday’s overtime win against Baltimore with a sleeve over his injured right elbow after twisting on tackle in the first quarter. The rookie finished with 11 carries for 28 yards and added four receptions for 27 yards.

Tomlin hinted that Harris might be restricted earlier in the week, although he did allow the energetic 23- Keeping yearlings at bay.

EAGLES: Philadelphia Defensive Coordinator Jonathan Gannon is more focused on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers than on interviews for head coaches.

The first year coordinator said he would take the opportunity to discuss with Eagles chief executive Howie Roseman and coach Nick Sirianni.

SEAHAWKS: Backup quarterback Geno Smith was arrested on suspicion of drinking after the Washington State Patrol stopped him for doing 96 mph drove in a 60-mile zone and drove erratically in multiple lanes, according to an arrest report.

Smith was evacuated from Ari on Monday morning after the Seahawks returned zona arrested after her last game of the season. According to the arrest report, the state trooper « found a strong smell of intoxicants and found the driver’s eyes to be bloodshot and watery. » Smith told the state trooper he had some wine earlier that night but stopped drinking 90 minutes before he was arrested.

Smith declined a preliminary breath test and a judge issued a search warrant for a blood sample. Smith was rushed to hospital where he became restless before the blood sample was taken, although the Seahawks team safety director was there to reassure Smith, the report said. Shackles were used to complete the process, the soldiers wrote.

Smith was then transported to the King County Correctional Facility. He was released on Monday on $ 1,000 bail.

Smith’s attorney Jon Fox issued a statement Monday saying his client was cooperating with investigators. « I hope everyone stays open-minded about establishing the facts, » said Fox.

BROWNS: Baker Mayfield’s subpar season didn’t cost him his starting job, and General Manager Andrew Berry said the Browns « fully expect » that Mayfield will return to quarterback after an injury-ridden year in 2021.

Mayfield played with a torn labrum in his left non-throwing shoulder for most of the season, and the injury helped him fall back and the Browns (Aug. -9) missed the playoffs. He will have surgery on Jan. 19.

Mayfield’s shaky season – and the team’s reluctance to sign him for long-term overtime – fueled speculation that the Browns might head in a different direction at the quarterback.

It is still possible. It’s the unpredictable NFL, after all, and things can change in the blink of an eye or with a phone call.

The Browns are exercising Mayfield’s $ 18.9 million contract option for the next season. So if they don’t have a deal in mind or are convinced they can find a significant upgrade in the free agency, Mayfield may be the best option for the Browns.

PANTHERS: Carolina fired three assistant coaches, including the coordinator special teams Chase Blackburn, offensive line trainer Pat Meyer and defensive line trainer Frank Okam.

SENIOR BOWL: The New York Jets and Detroit Lions will make some of the best players in college football at the Senior Bowl The coaching staff of both teams have been hired by NFL Football Operations to lead the All-Star roster for the game in Mobile, Alabama on February 5. JETS: New York is increasing its Ticket prices by an average of 3%, the team’s first increase since 2016.

The Jets, which ran a 4-13 campaign and an eleventh season in a row without a playoff appearance, have kept ticket prices stagnant in recent years. But as the cost of living has increased across the country, Jets fans now have to pay a little more to watch their team at MetLife.
