Jason Garrett took “full responsibility” for the Giants’ offensive struggles on his manner out the door.
Garrett launched a statement Tuesday after being fired as Big Blue’s offensive coordinator following the crew’s 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday evening. He referred to as the day “certainly disappointing” and thanked the Mara and Tisch households for the chance to teach the Giants over the previous two seasons.
“I also want to thank the Giants’ coaches and staff for their hard work and their unwavering kindness to my wife Brill and me,” Garrett said. “This building is filled with great people who made our time here special. Most of all, I want to express my gratitude to the players that I’ve had the privilege to coach here. While the bottom-line results weren’t what we wanted, I’ll be forever inspired by their approach, their professionalism and the fight they demonstrated regardless of the circumstances.”
The Giants offense averaged simply 18 factors per recreation with Garrett on the helm and was ranked No. 30 within the NFL forward of simply the Jets and Jaguars throughout that point. Head coach Joe Judge expressed his frustrations with the crew’s lack of offense after the loss on “Monday Night Football.”
“We have to do a better job scoring points,” Judge stated. “I’m going to keep it very blunt right there. We have to do a better job putting our players in position to make plays. We have too many good players.”
Garrett, 55, didn’t draw back from the blame for the Giants’ struggles on that aspect of the ball and wished everybody with the group “nothing but the best going forward.” The Giants are 3-7 this season.
“One of the things that motivated me to accept this position was the opportunity to help rebuild the Giants into a contending team,” stated Garrett, who was head coach of the Cowboys for 10 seasons earlier than his firing in 2019. “We knew there would be many challenges. My expectations for our offense were much greater than what our results have been, and I accept full responsibility for that.”
Former Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens, a senior offensive assistant, is the possible in-house favourite to take over Garrett’s duties and oversee the event of Daniel Jones transferring ahead.
