Joe Judge keeps things classy
After the Philadelphia Eagles seemingly lost to the Washington Football Team on purpose during their Sunday night week 17 game, New York Giants head coach Joe Judge was critical of Doug Pederson without actually saying his name.
Now that Pederson has been fired, during a radio appearance on WFAN on Tuesday Judge was asked about the Super Bowl winning coach being laid off.
“Well look, I’m never going to comment on anybody else’s job. That’s their decision as an organization. I can tell you I have a tremendous amount of respect for Doug. He’s obviously accomplished a lot in this league. He’s done a lot with that team … I have a lot of respect for Doug … He’s done a good job with that team,” said Judge, via NJ.com.
“I’ll let the organization speak for that decision and what they want to do going forward. I’ma ways going to avoid talking about somebody else’s job whether it’s on this staff or somewhere else. A lot of respect for what he’s accomplished in this league,” he added.
I’m not surprised that Judge kept things classy, but he also has to be grinning inside with how obvious it was that Pederson wasn’t trying to defeat Washington during the final week of the season.
