“You guys always want to know what the hell we talk about all the time, I’ll tell you pointblank what it is. All right, when the guys come to work on Wednesday, okay, and they bust their butt for you, and turn around on Thursday, and they’re all committed doing extras in position units, doing extras individually to get their body right, they’re doing everything going forward, okay, and they go out there and practice with good energy, good enthusiasm, and you know you’re in the right position right there, okay, you know you got that aspect going right there,” Judge said.

“I talk to the players all the time, guys. I talk to them very openly and transparently. We don’t even know have captains because a majority of our captains are no longer playing for the remainder of the season, so we do a leadership meeting now. I look at the guys at the end of the day and say, Guys, hey, listen, this is your time to talk to me, you speak for the team. You tell me what’s going on. You tell me, How’s the team? How’s the beat of the team? What do I got to be aware of? What’s something I don’t know? Because everyone always tells me what I want to hear, right?

“So I ask someone just individually, I ask a player, they’re going to tell me whatever I want to hear. I ask a coach the same type of thing. All right, I got to have a group of players who are going to look me in the eye, and they know I can tell Joe what exactly the hell is going on. So I got that core group of guys, right?”

New York Giants’ Rob Sale offers ominous take on Isaiah Wilson

New York Giants offensive line coach Rob Sale spoke to the media Thursday morning and had some revealing comments about his beleaguered unit.

Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, a former first-round selection of the Tennessee Titans whose professional football career has been marred with suspensions, two arrests and multiple incidents of insubordination, was the subject of conversation as the COVID-19-ravaged Giants search for answers and depth on the offensive line.

Sale did not sound enthusiastic about Wilson contributing this year or, perhaps, at all.

Apparently, Wilson has not straightened out his act since the Giants took a flier on him back in late September.

Wilson, the 29th overall selection in the 2020 NFL draft out of Georgia, played only one game as a rookie last year for the Titans. He was traded to the Miami Dolphins earlier this year but was cut after showing up late for his physical and missing two workouts.

The Giants decided to sign Wilson to their practice squad in September after multiple players were lost for the season due to injury. He was a college teammate of Andrew Thomas — the Giants’ first-round pick last year and starting left tackle — at Georgia and the thought process was that a reunion with Thomas might reset Wilson’s career path. Apparently that hasn’t happened.

New York Giants OL coach Rob Sale on Florida’s radar?

The New York Giants fired Marc Colombo midway through the 2020 regular season and moved onto Dave DeGuglielmo. After being unable to retain “Googe” in the offseason, the Giants hired Rob Sale as their offensive line coach.

That’s a lot of turnover in a short period of time and it may only be just beginning.

G. Allen Taylor of The Athletic reports that Florida’s newly hired head coach, Billy Napier, “aims to reunite” with Sale this coming offseason.

Napier is seeking to bring aboard Chris Rumph from the Chicago Bears, Karl Scott from the Minnesota Vikings and Eric Henderson of the Los Angeles Rams on the defensive side. He also aims to reunite with New York Giants offensive line coach Rob Sale, the source indicated. Those discussions are on hold until those NFL teams complete their seasons.

Sale and Napier have a long history that extends back to their days as assistants on the Alabama coaching staff. They also worked together at Arizona State and Louisiana.

If Sale does end up heading to Florida — and why wouldn’t he with Napier reportedly offering $1 million assistant contracts — the Giants will be looking at a significant offensive staff rebuild. They already need to replace offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and could move on from several others.

The inconsistency in East Rutherford appears bound to continue.
