Joe Judge already had to deal with getting fired by the New York Giants this week. Wendy’s kicked him while he was down with a devastating tweet.
Wednesday was National Roast Day and Wendy’s took advantage by devoting their Twitter account to roasting all comers.
No one was safe, especially not the New York Giants and former head coach Joe Judge.
It started when Will Brinson of CBS Sports used the Giants’ infamous Fan Appreciation Day gift of a medium soda to take a swipe at the fast-food chain.
Wendy’s replied with a perfectly placed jab right to Judge’s gut by bringing up his third-and-9 QB sneak against Washington.
Joe Judge’s QB sneak on 3rd and nine became a Wendy’s punchline
Judge is going to get mocked over that call for years to come. Wendy’s dig comes just soon enough after his firing to really twist the knife.
The Giants hired Judge as head coach in 2020 after he made a name for himself as the Patriots special teams coordinator. He started his tenure 0-5 but made some strides on route to a 6-10 record and a second-place finish in the NFC East.
Whatever progress was made seemed to evaporate in 2021. New York took a step back while fans became increasingly frustrated with Judge’s approach. Controversy over several comments he made over his two years in charger didn’t help his case.
Though Judge appeared to survive Black Monday, when coaches are typically fired at the conclusion of the regular season, he was ultimately relieved of his duties on Tuesday.
Now, Judge is a punchline.
