It didn’t take long for the New York Giants to take swift action following their 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football.

Not even a full day after head coach Joe Judge threw the Giants coaching staff, namely Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett under the bus, during his post game press conference, Garrett was out as Offensive Coordinator.

Former Browns Head Coach Freddie Kitchens, who has been on the Giants staff this year as an assistant, now becomes interim Offensive Coordinator for a unit that ranks 25th in the NFL in total offense, averaging 18.5 points per game.

“You guys can write that tonight. Players have to execute. That is their job, right? It is our job to teach them. It’s their job to go out and execute,” Judge said last night.

“But we’ve got to make sure we put them in position to have success. That has to be consistent, by the way. So, you can go ahead and write that down. I’m not going to debate that.”

This news comes off  a performance where quarterback Daniel Jones looked mightily indecisive with the football. He was making throws off his back foot, sometimes without any merit. He was picked off twice; one of the interceptions landed right into the hands of Steve McClendon, a defensive lineman.

While it is easy to blame Garrett, and certainly his play-calling wasn’t good, one has to wonder if the real culprit is indeed with Jones.

Jones has only nine touchdown passes to seven interceptions this year. He is on pace to set a career high in picks come season’s end, and he hasn’t displayed enough in his third season that he is deserving of a long term commitment.

Does Jones’ development, or lack thereof, fall squarely on Jason Garrett? Some of it does. But Jones’ regression also falls on the shoulders of  head coach, Joe Judge, General Manager David Gettleman, and Jones, himself.

The Giants are at a critical juncture. Either the organization moves past Jones, Judge and Gettleman, or they give it one last shot next season.  However as losses continue to stack up, more changes are inevitable.
