Yes indeed, Joe Judge, the internet is undefeated.
Those last four words were the Giants head coach’s summation of the reaction to Daniel Jones’ epic rumble on Thursday night, one that had the entire social media landscape buzzing – including Tweets from fellow NFL stars like Patrick Mahomes and Stefon Diggs.
The head coach had some praise for the 80-yard scamper and stumble as well.
“I thought he made a nice run,” Judge smiled. “We’d like him to stay up and finish it, but eventually, we’ll be able to laugh about it. Right now we’ll correct some techniques and things, but Jason made a great call at a right time, Daniel made a nice run and got a huge gain for the team, and we capitalized on it.”
No laughing now, as the Giants lost a heartbreaker, but it’s better to be laughed with than at.
“Look, the internet’s undefeated. There’s funny things all over the place, and you just have to have a sense of humor and be able to laugh at yourself sometimes,” Judge said.
In case you missed it, here’s Jones’ run once again, as called by Bob Papa and Carl Banks on WFAN (h/t @bubbaprog for syncing audio and video).
