It's safe to say the New York Giants are in a bit of a free fall right now. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett was fired on Tuesday morning and the fan base's frustration seems to be mounting. After all, the Giants have lost four of their last six games and sit at the bottom of the NFC East division.
Head coach Joe Judge was hired to turn things around, yet the Giants have fallen behind in an offensive-drive league and their defense ranks in the middle of the pack. With that being said, here are three coaches New York can consider hiring to replace Joe Judge this offseason.
Joe Judge Replacements
1. Byron Leftwich, Offensive Coordinator, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Byron Leftwich is starting to gain more steam as a head coaching candidate heading into the offseason. The Tampa Bay offensive coordinator played a major role in getting quarterback Tom Brady acclimated to a new playbook before going on a Super Bowl run last season. Keep in mind that his offenses have also consistently ranked amongst the league's best in scoring and total yards. The Giants are in need of an offensive-minded leader as they currently rank No. 25 in the NFL with just 18.9 points per game. Leftwich's upside cannot be overstated in this discussion.
2. Brian Daboll, Offensive Coordinator, Buffalo Bills
One popular name that was connected to the Giants before the hiring of Joe Judge was Brian Daboll of the Buffalo Bills. He makes sense as a candidate this offseason as well. The 46-year-old offensive coordinator's system has turned quarterback Josh Allen into an MVP candidate, which makes it exciting to think about what he could do with Daniel Jones in New York. Bills' players are constantly rallying around Daboll's motivating demeanor and that is exactly what the Giants are in need of. As long as Daboll can bring along a competent defensive coordinator, he should be one of the team's top targets.
3. Eric Bieniemy, Offensive Coordinator, Kansas City Chiefs
Eric Bieniemy is likely going to be a recurring popular name in the head coaching market until he eventually leaves his job running the Kansas City Chiefs' offense. There's a number of great reasons why, too. The Chiefs have finished among the top 10 NFL teams in scoring over the last three years and are starting to get back to that level in 2021 as well. Bieniemy is yet another disciple of the Andy Reid coaching tree and brings a ton of experience along with him. The Giants should do everything they can to bring him to town.
