Joe Judge is a new York Giants running back. On 3rd and 2, it appeared that he would gain the required yardage for first down but instead Joe Judge ran into his own blockers allowing the Jaguars to stop them short of their goal line.
The play was initially ruled incomplete leading to some confusion over whether or not QB sneak rules were in effect during this game which led many players to believe they did indeed run one. However, after further review, it was found out that because he hadn’t crossed the line when contact occurred with an official on field judge (starting at 5 yards), then there wasn’t any extra point awarded by rule so no turnover on downs happened either.
Joe Judge, New York roasted for running QB sneak on 3rd. Joe Judge was the quarterback of the New York Jets. He made a decision to run a QB sneak on third down against the Buffalo Bills. The play went as planned and allowed them to score a touchdown.
In Week 18, the New York Giants have nothing to play for. They have already been eliminated from the playoffs when they host the Washington Football Team. There is no better time than their last football game of the season to let free and try new things.
The Giants, on the other hand, seem to disagree, since they continue to be safe and boring. They opt to execute a quarterback sneak on 2nd-and-11 after being backed up deep in their own territory and gain a few yards. Then, to to the supporters’ dismay, they did it again.
The Giants just QB sneaked on 2nd & 3rd down. This is unbelievably soft. pic.twitter.com/4ziBxYI55A

Nobody profits from such cowardly playcalling. The supporters that came out to witness the club finish a disappointing season won’t even get to see them accomplish anything exciting. Instead, they’ll have to watch as New York surrenders on offense and moves closer for superior punting posture.
The Giants and their head coach, Joe Judge, were chastised for the bizarre play call.

1) I attempted to convince you that watching the Giants was horrible. When I went back and reviewed their games from the previous month, I was astounded at how awful their offense was.
2) WFT has been almost as bad. Kyle Allen should play in the second half if Rivera wants to pull away.

Joe Judge, I’m persuaded, is daring management to dismiss him in the Office Space way. https://t.co/G3zlelNiDb

On FOX, Terry Bradshaw was asked why the #Giants should be hopeful.
“I’m sorry, but I’m not able to.” There aren’t any. It’s a terrible, terrible job. Joe Judge did a poor job as a coach, and Dave Gettleman did a poor one as GM.”
That seems to be the case. #NFL

I’m not sure what the Giants are up to.

The worst play call of all time has to be a QB sneak on 3rd and 9. pic.twitter.com/7lT2J9AYPU

I just received a message from an NFL scout with over 30 years of experience. “I’ve never seen that sort of capitulation in the NFL before. That is the most heinous thing I’ve ever seen.”

It’s difficult to make those play decisions sound even more absurd, but Judge has managed to do it. The Giants’ coach is a big believer in working hard. Running deliberate sneaks to gain a few yards is the polar opposite of that.
The Giants just ran a QB sneak on third and nine. It’s not a tie. This is a ruse. From a de facto kneeling position.
One year after Joe Judge chastised Doug Pederson for not giving it his best all the way to the finish, the Giants have packed it in the final two weeks. It’s impossible to make it up.

“We will never disrespect the game by not competing for 60 minutes and doing all in your power to assist those guys win as long as I am the head coach of the Giants.” https://t.co/rq9HmHsurP

Judge’s leadership and football expertise have been praised by Saquon Barkley and other important Giants players this week. When he makes mistakes like these and puts up game plans that end in negative passing yards over the course of a game, it’s a lot difficult to discern where they’re coming from.
Coming into this game, Giants supporters were already irritated. In New York, they now have even more reasons to be dissatisfied.
