Why New York Giants Players Support Head Coach Joe Judge’s Method - Sports Illustrated

Giants players have been quick to defend Judge after Kelvin Benjamin’s harsh comments Tuesday night.

“You can strap up your helmet and go to war for a coach like that,” Engram said of Judge’s approach.

“The biggest thing I learned from Coach Judge was just how the whole team works together,” Bradberry said. “I play defense, so naturally, I tend to not pay attention to what the offense is doing or what special teams is doing.

“But him being our head coach, you know, he forces us to pay attention to everything that goes into the game. He always talks about situations—that’s football in general, everything is situational—and I learned a lot from that.
