Recap of where the Giants stand entering Week 5, via the Associated Press:
The first-quarter marking period is over and it might be easy to make a knee-jerk reaction and give New York Giants coach Joe Judge a D for failing to win a game.
The 0-4 record is not what any fans hoped for when the 38-year-old former New England Patriots special teams coordinator was signed to become the coach in January. Consider, though, that Judge was taking over a team that won 12 games in the past three seasons. The roster is among the NFL’s youngest and the talent level needs to be built for success to follow.
The resurrection of this franchise is going to take time.
There are positives. The Giants were competitive in three of the four games. They play hard and the mistakes they make are to be expected from a team learning new systems. They just need more talent and they need to stay healthy.
Losing dynamic running back Saquon Barkley two games into the season with a major knee injury hurt, as did having receiver Sterling Shepard go on injured reserve with a foot damaged in the same game.
That’s left second-year quarterback Daniel Jones to carry the load, both passing and running because of the struggles of the line.
And Jones is struggling. He has thrown two touchdowns in four games and turned the ball over seven times, including a pick on Sunday with the Giants down eight and driving in the final minutes of a 17-9 loss to the Rams.
He looked shell-shocked at times.
Judge defended Jones on Monday when asked about a coach knowing when a young quarterback is “their guy.”
“If you are asking is Daniel our quarterback, Daniel is our quarterback,” Judge said. “That’s who we are playing with. We support him. We have a lot of confidence in him, faith in him. He is a young guy who is developing and we see a lot of progress from day to day.”
Judge reiterated Jones has things he needs to learn and clean up, but he is the “guy.”
The answer might not get the Giants any wins but it certainly was the right thing to say with his team struggling to win a game. It lets a youngster know the coaching staff is not going to drop support of him in the heat of action.
The Giants all have to be better to gets wins.
