When the Giants hired Joe Judge, it was clear almost instantly he was going to be a no-nonsense coach that would run a disciplined and tough team.

Well, a couple of weeks into training camp, he has lived true to that, to the point where he has even been receiving some backlash for making practices too tough.

Last week he even floated the idea of removing starting quarterback Daniel Jones' non-contact red practice jersey so he could feel getting hit before the season started.

While no one has really questioned Jones' toughness, he did have trouble holding onto the football last season, something that has been a major focus of his offseason training.

When asked about this again, Judge doubled down in jest, suggesting a method of building toughness seen in the movie Full Metal Jacket.

While this was clearly a joke, it doesn't seem like the initial remarks were. Judge is committed to building a tough team and that includes the quarterback. There are no indications he will go through with allowing Jones to be hit in practice, but he has clearly opened his mind to other methods of toughening up Jones and everyone else on the roster. After all, this is NFL football, its never going to be for the faint of heart.
