Over the last two seasons, Josh Allen has been arguably the best quarterback in the National Football League. The highly successful young signal-caller has nothing but great things to say about the New York Giants’ new head coach, Brian Daboll.
The Buffalo Bills hired Daboll to be their offensive coordinator in 2018, the year they drafted Allen. Prior to this year, Daboll was the only play-caller Allen had since his NFL career started.
The two accomplished great success together starting in 2019. They helped the Bills have a 10-win season and a playoff berth. Over the last two seasons, they broke out and were utterly dominant. In 2020, they were the second-ranked offense in football. Last year, they finished fifth in football. Combined, Allen threw for 8,951 yards and 73 touchdowns. Since 2020, the Bills won three playoff games, in which Daboll played a crucial part in.
That immense success led to Daboll becoming the Giants’ head coach this January. Daboll played a part in the rapid development of Allen and built tremendously productive offenses. Giants fans are hoping he brings that here.

Allen speaks glowingly of Daboll:
On Daboll’s mindset and leadership, Allen had this to say, “He has this extreme competitive nature that relates with his team and his guys. And it makes guys want to play for him, it really does. And how he carries himself in the building, not keeping things too serious, try to make things competition-based, I think guys really appreciate that.”
Allen spoke on how Daboll will get the Giants players to be at their best by stating, “He’s gonna be able to get the most out of them.” “Like I said, guys want to play for this man. He’s never not on – he talks ball, and he thinks ball 24-7. He loves it, he absolutely loves it. He loves having a good time, he loves being around the guys in the team room and on the field making jokes. It’s something like I’ve never seen before.”
Most importantly, with the development of Daniel Jones, Allen had this to say about what Daboll will offer, “He’s gonna give him tools at the line of scrimmage.” “He’s going to put in an offense that suits him, and anything that Daniel’s not comfortable with, they’re gonna take out. They’re gonna conform it to what fits Daniel Jones best.”
