Changes could be coming to the New York Giants' coaching staff sooner than expected. On Monday night, head coach Joe Judge made it very clear that he's not thrilled with his offense's production this season.

"We have to do a better job of scoring points," Judge said, via ESPN. "I know it sounds pretty obvious and to the point with it. But I'm going to keep it pretty blunt right there. We have to do a better job of putting our players in position to make plays. We have too many good players. We have to put them in better position to capitalize on it. That's it."

Judge was then asked if he still has confidence in Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. At first, he had a positive response.

"I have faith in all the people on our team -- players, coaches, everyone. We'll assess everything as a team and make any move we need to going forward," Judge replied.

When asked in a follow-up question if Garrett will remain the team's offensive coordinator, Judge said "I'm not going to get into it right now."

NFL fans believe Judge has reached his breaking point with the Giants' offense. If that's the case, Garrett could be on his way out fairly soon. "Didn't take a whole lot of reading between the lines to grasp that Jason Garrett is deservedly on the hot seat after this pathetic performance," one fan said.

"Jason Garrett needs to be fired after this game," another fan said. "I’m so tired of this." 

"Jason Garrett is straight-up just bad at his job... he needs to be fired first thing in the morning and Freddie Kitchens needs to be elevated to OC and call plays," a Giants fan tweeted.

Believe it or not, there are some fans who believe firing Garrett won't solve the problem in New York.

"Firing Jason Garrett is basically covering a hole in the wall with a picture frame to cover up the bigger issue," a Giants fan said. "Everything is meaningless until Dave Gettleman is fired. Simple as that... It starts at the top."

The Giants are averaging just 18.9 points per game this season. That's not good enough for a unit that features Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Kadarius Toney.

Only time will tell if Garrett is truly on the hot seat.
