Jason Garrett’s offense may not be what the Giants need
I’ve already written that I think New York Giants’ offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has done a pretty good job this season, but with the current slide that the offense has been on over the past five weeks or so, it might be time to move on from him.
Paul Schwartz of the NY Post mentioned that the knock on Garrett is that his system needs too much talent to make it work and I think we’re seeing that this season.
The knock on Garrett around the league is that his offensive system works only if there is plenty of talent to make it go, that his system is based too much on one-on-one matchup winning and not enough on scheming his players into advantageous scenarios on the field.
The Giants definitely need more talent on offense, but they have enough to work with to score more points right now. They of course do need a true number one receiver but Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Evan Engram should be enough to move the ball down field. Especially with teams loading the box knowing that the Giants want to pound it with Wayne Gallman.
I can’t tell you if Garrett should be fired, but if his system can’t adjust to what talent the Giants have then it might be time for them to move on from him.
One reason why I don’t think the Giants will fire Garrett is that their ownership loves him and will likely give him at least one more season.
