Judge/ Colombo re Parcells...

GA5 : 11/20/2020 4:16 pm
In 1983, Bill Parcells was a rookie head coach. For many reasons, the Giants had a terrible season. Parcells almost lost his job. It took that experience to make him realize that he should remake the team his way. He turned over his roster, including letting go several popular players. He also shuffled his coaching staff, firing offensive line coach Tom Bresnahan, and bringing in Fred Hoaglin. It proved to be a fortuitous move. I,for one, am happy that Judge is remaking the team in his image now, and not waiting a year to do so. What happened with Colombo, and Golden Tate, show me that he is determined to bring discipline to the team. Will Judge build the team into a champion? Time will tell...but it will be his team. Meanwhile, let the chips fall where they may.

Well said.
I agree

that Judge should immediately begin forging the team in his own image. It may not work out for him - there are a lot of factors that will determine his success or failure. But he should be using the honeymoon period he has with the NY media, players, and ownership to start making these moves.

If he decided to wait a year and the team struggled badly in the meantime, he wouldn't have nearly the same level of good will and benefit of the doubt.

There's also a multiplier effect going the other way. If he acts now and the team improves now, he buys himself a ton of credibility that will serve him in the rough patches that are sure to come in the years ahead.
i couldn't agree more.

Judge should do whatever he thinks it will take to get to sustained winning.
To me, what he did with Logan Ryan is just as important

I think he truly cares about his players.

Way too much. Columbo was openly insubordinate and got canned. Football teams are strict hierarchies. Could Judge have handle better? Possible, but we don’t know all the facts. Quite possible there was a rat on the ship before he had a chance to tell Columbo. Who knows?
