Joe Judge accepts blame for New York Giants' struggles, says 'the fish stinks from the head down'

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants coach Joe Judge isn't putting the blame elsewhere for his team's 1-5 start -- he's looking right in the mirror.

"There's your answer. I'm the head coach. It's my responsibility, point blank," Judge said Thursday. "Every player on this field, every position group, the execution, it all comes down to me. The fish stinks from the head down.

"I've been taught that from great guys who I worked for, played for. There are no excuses, no exceptions. You demand it from your coaches to make sure that the player are playing the right way.
