Luckily for Giants fans, John Mara just needed a couple of days to mull it over before making the ultimate decision to part ways with Joe Judge.

After the decision was announced, Mara released a statement on the Joe Judge call.

Per the Giants:

“Steve (Tisch) and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction,” said team president John Mara. “We met with Joe yesterday afternoon to discuss the state of the team. I met again with Joe this afternoon, and it was during that conversation I informed Joe of our decision. We appreciate Joe’s efforts on behalf of the organization.

“I said before the season started that I wanted to feel good about the direction we were headed when we played our last game of the season. Unfortunately, I cannot make that statement, which is why we have made this decision.

“We will hire a general manager and that person will lead the effort to hire a new head coach.”

Joe Judge finished his tenure with the Giants 10-23. And now the team appears to be headed for a full-blown rebuild.
