Jason Garrett still has a lot to prove
There’s no doubt that the New York Giants’ offense was stale and flat during their first season under offensive coordinator Jason Garrett in 2020. With all of the weapons he has now, he doesn’t have any excuses to underperform this coming season.
Former NFL quarterback and ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky shared his thoughts on what Garrett needs to do in 2021 to help the Giants’ offense.
Orlovsky made some good points. I do think six carries a game for Jones might be a lot for him, but when he does run, it catches defenses off guard because it seems they don’t really know how fast he is.
I also don’t think designed runs are good for Jones compared to him just taking off and running when things break down or his receivers can’t get open.
I agree that Kadarius Toney and Saquon Barkley need 25 carries a game combined. I would even up that to 30. I could see 22-26 for Barkley and the rest for Toney. Then again, the Giants now have a lot of weapons, so 25 might be enough.
I believe the addition of Toney, Kyle Rudolph and John Ross will help the Giants attack the middle of the field more, so hopefully Garrett will do just that.
Jordan Raanan of ESPN also gave his take.
