Pat Shurmur on Joe Judge: “Not an accurate assessment” to say 2019 Giants quit

Joe Judge’s now-infamous 11-minute postgame rant about the state of the 2021 Giants included a pointed criticism of his team’s former head coach.

Judge claimed that “everybody quit” and “everybody tapped” on New York’s 2019 team, which was coached by Pat Shurmur. Shurmur was 9-23 in two seasons as the Giants’ head coach, the same record he compiled as Cleveland’s head coach from 2011-2012.

One of the problems with what Judge said is the Giants won two of their last three games to finish 4-12 that year, defeating Miami in Week 15 and Washington in Week 16. Fans who wanted defensive end Chase Young at the top of the 2020 draft weren’t exactly pleased with that development, as it dropped the Giants to No. 4 overall.

Now the Broncos offensive coordinator, Shurmur was asked on Wednesday about Judge’s comments.

“I obviously — that’s not an accurate assessment,” Shurmur said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post. “But beyond that, I have no comment.”

Judge said Monday that he had no regrets over his postgame comments. But they continue to reverberate around the league as New York prepares to end its season against Washington.

  1. Joe Judge was just lying about everything up there in a desperate attempt to put himself over. He’s a sad insecure little man.

  2. This is one car crash debating with another car crash which mess was bigger. IMO

  3. Shurmur is and has been a very good OC in the league for a long time. Terrible head coach. Judge ran special teams in NE for years and no one knew who he was, and is a terrible head coach.

  4. NFL coaches from the college ranks really need to start making better impressions. They’re coming off as entitled aholes who blame others for the losing they’re not used to because they’re coming from big money schools.

  5. Shurmur is and has been a very good OC in the league for a long time. Terrible head coach. Judge ran special teams in NE for years and no one knew who he was, and is a terrible head coach.

    As a Denver Broncos fan, I can attest that Pat is not a very good OC. In fact, he’s subpar and incapable of making in-game or halftime adjustments.

  6. The Giants need a rebuild.
    They will take a while to improve.
    Judge will last a year then get fired.
    Then they will hopefully hire a better HC.
