Dan Orlovsky is not buying what Joe Judge is selling.
The second-year-old head coach went viral on Sunday for his 11-minute response to why fans of the Giants should believe the franchise will change the situation. Some of his grievances were criticized more than others, and on Monday the judge said he did not regret his comments, even halving some of them.
However, ESPN reporter Orlovsky on Monday tore up the coach for speaking like “Timmy Tough Nuts” after the referee’s post-match remarks.
“First of all, you’ve been head coach for two years,” former NFL midfielder Orlovsky said. “Your team has won two games in a row,” he said. You lost two games in two games. You shouldn’t be talking in Timmy Tough Nuts style. You’ve had one touch in the last 35 attacks.
“It simply came to our notice then. I think this is where you get yourself into trouble when you step up and use coaching speech.
One example of the referee not giving up on his team this season was the lack of golf balls in front of the players ’lockers. Orlovsky, who was in the Lions 0-16 in 2008, said he had never heard of such a thing, although the referee told the Golden Tate, who had golf balls in his closet, at the end of the Giants’ 2019 season. seemed to point.
Orlovsky also ruled out the referee’s claim that the current giants, who will be free agents next year, are “asking to come back” and that, suspiciously, if he were to focus on this season, the coach would be looking at his upcoming free agents. he said he shouldn’t know who she was. .
The referee was even more heated when he claimed that last year the team was calling players who had gone elsewhere for more money. [him] Twice a week they talk about how much they still want to be here. Orlovsky questioned the idea and pointed out that Wayne Gallman was the only departure he could think of, but he missed two high-profile names: Dalvin Tomlinson and Kevin Zeitler.
Still, Orlovsky insists the referee is not confident to speak like the head coach he learned while working for the Patriots.
“If you go up there and use the coach’s word, you lose the players,” Orlovsky said. “I said a few weeks ago that if you think you can speak like Bill Belichik, but you have in your memory someone who thinks there are no victories like Bill Belichik, you will be tuned. You can sit there and use the press conference as a way to talk to your football team, but when you do, no one will listen. “
Prior to joining the Giants in 2020, the judge served as special group coordinator with the Patriots from 2015-19.
