The very moment the New York Giants fired former head coach, Pat Shurmur, Dallas’ long-time HC, Jason Garrett, was quickly connected to the vacant job opening. Most believed it was to replace Shurmur, but it was soon released that he would fill the offensive coordinator position, replacing Mike Shula.
After spending 13 seasons with the Cowboys, a majority of them being above .500, Garrett was let go, primarily due to the lack of postseason appearances and success in elimination rounds. The Giants bringing him in would not only make sense, but it would benefit Daniel Jones, who learned under Shurmur last season.
The New York Giants can trust Jason Garrett as their offensive coordinator:
Garrett’s familiarity with developing quarterbacks and coaching quality players would be a perfect fit for Jones, and his utilization of Ezekiel Elliot would be a benefit for Saquon Barkley.
Some may neglect this move out of pure bias, but Garrett has the experience and quality to put the Giants’ offense in an advantageous position. His influence on Joe Judge will also be significant.
Expect to see an up-tempo offense that relies heavily on deep crossing routes and running back screens. Barkley will be a focal point, as he should be.
