Joe Judge was fired as head coach of the New York Giants after the 2021 season and compiling a 10-23 record during his tenure. He left with class and dignity, refusing to bash anyone on his way out the door.

That is still the case. Judge is now back in New England as an assistant and has yet to reflect openly on his time with the Giants.

In recent podcast on Barstool Sports, veteran NFL reporter Peter Schrager revealed a conversation he had with Judge after Judge was fired.

From the New York Post:

“He gets fired, everyone’s so happy, doing flips, and I do this thing where I’ll call the coach or text him and be like, ‘Hey, if there’s anything I can do,’” Schrager said. “I can’t do [expletive], ‘If there’s anything I can do, put in a good word with another team…’ They don’t need my help, but it’s a gesture.

“He calls me right away and he goes, ‘Here’s what you can do’ — I love this about Joe Judge and Giants fans might be ready to run through a wall for this — ‘This is what you can do. Next time you or your co-hosts want to [expletive] all over Daniel Jones, or say that they know Jones is terrible, or this or that, know that Daniel Jones is tough as [expletive], comes prepared, and I would run through a brick wall for that guy.’”

Jones was completely abused by the Giants — by their own admission — left hung out to dry with a substandard supporting cast and a dreadful game plan that set him up for failure, and injury.

Schrager said he gave Judge a window to slam the Giants, but Judge refused.

“I’m like, ‘That’s the one thing you want? You don’t want to take a shot at Gettleman, you don’t want to take a shot at the Maras?’” he said. “He’s like, ‘Nah, whatever. Just that quarterback is tough and was put in a tough spot and I just want everyone to know that.’”

Note to Judge: We do.
