Giants had a disastrous campaign against Tampa Bay Buccaneers, losing the match 30-10. Jason Garrett was fired following the continuing offensive struggles by the team.

“We made a decision to move on from Jason Garrett as the offensive coordinator of the New York Giants. Look, I have a lot of respect for Jason as a person, as a coach. He’s been a tremendous asset for me as a young head coach. He’s helped our development here. He’s built very strong relationships in the building with the players, along with other support staff members. He’s done a good job putting the team first. I have a lot of respect and appreciation for everything he’s done for us,” coach Joe Judge was quoted as saying in media reports.

“It is not a snap decision” Judge pointed out.

Experts pointed out that Garrett’s offense scored the fewest touchdowns of any team since the start of last season.

Garrett was the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys for a long time before joining the Giants in January 2020.

Though he had a strong equation with quarterback Daniel Jones, the partnership failed to bring victory for the team.

“Ultimately, I’ll make every decision based on what’s best for the team long term. I feel we have to be more productive as an offense. Generally speaking, the offense’s job is to score points. I don’t believe we’re scoring enough points. It’s my job as the head coach to make sure I give our players an opportunity to go out there and make plays,” Judge was quoted as saying in reports.

Garrett had a good equation with the owners because he had earlier played for the Giants organization. That could have led to him being hired as the coach. However Garrett struggled to make an impact with the team and that eventually led to his exit from it.
