ESPN Mocks New York Giants For Coaching Hire

ESPN mocked the New York Giants for their coaching hire this week.

After being in serious contention to hire former Baylor head coach Matt Rhule, the Giants ultimately settled for New England Patriots special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach Joe Judge.

The move caught a lot of people off guard.

Judge is a respected figure in professional football, but there is a reason why he was thought to be a good fit for the Mississippi State job. He is not the sort of marquee name you would expect an organization in country’s biggest media market to hire.

On Tuesday, Stephen A. Smith blasted the Giants for their decision. He thought the hiring was simply unfair.

“There is a Rooney Rule in place and still this kind of stuff happens,” he said.

“I want to announce on national television that I am personally going to take it upon myself, whether it’s to communicate with the NFL office, communicate with league owners or sit up here and raise hell.

“We got a problem. There is no way around it, we are moving in a reverse direction. Black men are not being treated fairly in the NFL.”

With the Giants, Panthers, Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys having filled their vacancies, only the Cleveland Browns remain.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is thought to be the front runner for that job, but Robert Saleh and Eric Bieniemy are also reportedly in contention.
