Chairman and Executive Vice President Steve Tisch -- January 9, 2020

Q: What set Joe apart from the other candidates in your conversation with him?
A: I felt a tremendous amount of leadership, discipline. He is a tremendous communicator, heís a student and a teacher at the same time. As a student, he has this voracious appetite to learn more and more. As a teacher, I think he is so committed and so passionate about working with every player on the roster, every coach on the staff. His commitment to this game and to the New York Giants is fantastic.

Q: It seemed like it was a pretty frenetic hour or two on Tuesday. You had the news break that Matt Rhule wasnít coming for the interview and then the news break that Jason Garrett had been requested and that you hired Joe Judge shortly after. Can you take the fans through what it was like on the inside?
A: I think the road to how we got here was uncharted. It was different than what we thought it was going to be. That saying Ďeverything happens for a reasoní, I believe Joe Judge is our coach for a reason. Matt Rhule is the Panthers head coach for a reason. Mike (McCarthy) is the Cowboys head coach for a reason. It just worked out, (you) canít plan for it. I donít really make plans, if you want to make plans, youíre going to make God laugh. It worked out extremely well and I could not be more thrilled with Joe Judge as the New York Giants head coach.

Q: This is a guy that most people didnít know his name, right. He was working with Bill (Belichick) up in New England. When was the first time he popped up on your radar? When did you hear his name and when did you realize okay this is a serious candidate?
A: I think I probably heard his name six or eight weeks ago as names were being tossed around.

Q: By who?
A: It was someone internal, but it was in the air. The more homework and research I did about all the candidates and specifically talking about Joe, the more impressed I was with his character. I think you saw today, this is a man with tremendous character, tremendous commitment, and passion about the game. Now that same passion and commitment will be on the field every game, in the locker room every day, at practice, and training camp. I am sincerely excited about the potential of where Joe can take this team.

Q: Correct me if Iím wrong, you went to see Joe on Tuesday morning?
A: Correct.

Q: What was your purpose in that and what stood out in your communication and seeing him in that moment?
A: My purpose was to have my couple of hours with Joe. It worked out that I was able to fly up to Providence (R.I.) and meet him there. When the conversation started, and my questions were answered, and the dialogue became more organic than just plain questions. I clearly got the impression that this is a very dynamic, passionate human being. His knowledge of the game, I think what he learned at Alabama under coach (Nick) Saban and clearly what he learned at the Patriots under Bill, he had two fantastic mentors. Not all students take great things from great teachers, I think Joe really has learned the best from the best. I think that is part of who he is and what his character is.

They are reading between the lines and looking for a way to spin the interview.
Someone should

have asked how his new He-Man movie is coming along.
dOOOOSH

From reading both Mara and Tisch transcripts, it sounds like Mara started working on a deal with Joeís agent at the same time that Tisch was meeting Joe? Seems strange.

Tisch met with Judge on Tuesday in Rhode Island, the day after he met with Mara, Gettleman, and Abrams.
I think I probably heard his name six or eight weeks ago

Interesting.

About 8 weeks ago was the bye week.

About 6 weeks ago was the Packer loss when their fans took over the stadium.

I think Judge's level of success will determine the name that gets attached to this:

Q: By who?
A: It was someone internal, but it was in the air.
Relevant is the "unchartered" comment

by Tisch whereby posters are questioning on other threads the Giants in their process of getting solely to Judge...

Thatís because he doesnít seem to know the first thing about whatís going on.

He doesnít want/canít get more involved throughout the year, and when a big event happens and he has/ want to be there his knowledge is limited.

He did Inadvertently shed light on when the decision could have been made regarding Shurmur when he said Judgeís name was mentioned during the season internally... meaning the FO was already discussing replacements during the season.

Ummm...what?
I can't recall who was interviewing Tisch...  
Klaatu : 1/10/2020 9:09 am : link
But he compared Judge to a couple of first-time Directors he'd hired who went on to have good careers.

Eric's talking Grant, I'm talking Eisenhower, Tisch is talking Guy Ritchie. Funny stuff. It's all about what you know, I guess.
