Joe Judge was given two days to try to defend two bad seasons.
Ultimately, he could not. Who could?
The Giants announced on Tuesday that Judge had been relieved of his duties as head coach, ending a two-year tenure that began with the promise of a return to the franchise’s days of glory but wound up more reminiscent of its days of deep despair.
Judge went 10-23 in his two seasons, but it was the last month or so of inept performances that made it impossible for the Giants to retain him. They lost their final six games of the season, each by double-digit margins, with increasingly poor play that pushed ownership past its patience.
