The seat for New York Giants head coach Joe Judge may not be all that hot despite a 4-9 start to the 2021 NFL season.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reported Judge is "widely expected to be brought back for his third season." That status would reportedly still be unchanged if the Giants moved on from general manager Dave Gettleman.

Vacchiano spoke to a source who said Giants co-owner John Mara "loves" Judge and believes he can be his Bill Belichick or Bill Parcells.

The Giants are all but guaranteed to miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season, and they sit last in the NFC East. Judge maintained a positive outlook and pointed to where he thought the organization was making strides.
