No exaggeration: This might be the most embarrassing moment in Giants history

The worst Giants season (since the last one) mercifully ended in a mostly empty MetLife Stadium. Now the important work begins.

.Plus, it is necessary to approach such proclamations with caution given the team’s history. What might seem like the nadir for this generation of football fans might seem tame in comparison to the fans who endured the dark ages of the 1970s.And still, even with all those disclaimers in mind, we feel comfortable declaring what happened in the second quarter of the Giants game against Washington as the most embarrassing moment in the franchise’s near 100-year history.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman gets a hug on the field before would could be his final game in the job. Really. In a flash, the Bulldogs’ hopes were crushed. This was that bad . Giants quarterback Jake Fromm reacts in the second quarter of Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium.

The Giants, trailing Washington 3-0 late in the second quarter, were pinned at their own 2-yard line when they did something that raised a white flag over MetLife Stadium in an unprecedented way. “I was like blind-sided,” Giants left tackle Andrew Thomas recalled in a phone interview of the 26-23 defeat on Jan. He has been the Giants’ GM for four seasons and posted a 19-45 record overall. They ran a quarterback sneak on second down , and when the play gained two yards, they ran another one on third down . And then they punted. “It was kind of like shock. Run that one back. Let it sink in.R.  In this scenario, the Giants tried a first-down pass from the 3-yard line – Fromm short-armed an incompletion on a simple route run by fullback Eli Penny – before the surrender sneaks.

The Giants, a 4-12 team with nothing to lose but another meaningless game, refused to let their offense attempt an actual play against a six-win Washington team. They might as well have just punted on second down! Embarrassing doesn’t begin to sufficiently describe it. He followed the ball’s path, watching it wind up in Smith’s hands. Let’s remember, the man making this decision is Joe Judge, the head coach that co-owner John Mara is believed to be prepared to bring back for a third season despite a 10-23 overall record. Judge gave an 11-minute sermon about the team’s improved culture a week ago, that his former players still dial him and tell him they wish they were still in New Jersey. “You see it in the air and all you think is, ‘Drop it. It was ridiculous when he said it — and that was before Judge added a new term for giving up to football’s modern lexicon.

Surrender Punt? Meet the Surrender Sneak.” Four years later, Georgia is getting another shot at winning its first championship since 1980, and players from the 2017 team that came so close to ending that drought will be focused on Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Monday night. The one positive for the Giants: At least there were only a few thousand people inside MetLife Stadium to see it happen. Combine the team’s current hopelessness with a bad opponent and a cold, gray January day, and you end up with what might be the lowest home attendance for the team since the stadium opened in 2010 (the NFL does not provide actual attendance numbers, just tickets distributed). Andrew Thomas celebrates a 52-7 shellacking of Georgia Tech on Nov. The crowd had to find ways to amuse itself. Everytime the referee made an routine announcement — “No. Getty Images Thomas has been in touch with some of the current Georgia players this week, offering encouragement and advice in advance of the biggest game of their lives.

79 is reporting eligible” — the fans roared with their approval. Judge, during that 11-minute rant, said that “every fan has the right to boo my ass out. The offensive lineman is planning to attend the game, hoping to celebrate four years after his heartbreak that really never has gone away.” Somehow, this combination of indifference and scorn was even worse. Then again, there might be a weird benefit for the fans who braved the cold to watch this lousy, meaningless football game. “We always hear how we haven’t won since 1980. They’ll be able to tell their kids someday that they saw the most embarrassing moment in Giants history.
