Judge: 4-12 Giants not a 'clown show organization'

New York Giants head coach Joe Judge defended his team following its fifth consecutive defeat in Sunday's 29-3 loss to the Chicago Bears.

The coach vented for over 11 minutes during his postgame presser after being asked why fans should have faith in the organization turning its fortunes around.

"This ain't a team that is having fistfights on the sidelines," Judge said, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. "This ain't some clown show organization or something else."

He added: "The toughest thing to change in a team, in a club, is the way people think. You understand that? That is the toughest thing. You can get new players. You can have your damn locker room all you want. You have to change how people think."

With starting quarterback Daniel Jones out for the season, Mike Glennon struggled to spark the Giants' offense on Sunday. He completed just 4 of 11 passes for 24 yards and two interceptions to go with four fumbles.

Because New York surrendered four sacks, it gained a total of -10 passing yards, marking the fewest passing yards any team has had in a game since the San Diego Chargers in 1998.

Judge led the Giants to a 6-10 mark in his head coaching debut last season. The team currently sits last in the NFC East at 4-12.

New York has struggled offensively through most of the season. Judge fired offensive coordinator Jason Garrett after Week 11, but the team has scored 10 points or fewer in three of its past six contests since Garrett’s departure.

The Giants will take on the Washington Football Team in their season finale on Sunday.
