2.) A more creative offensive scheme

Through three weeks, it seems as if the Giants are playing a base offensive scheme that lacks detail and creativity. While this can be coughed up primarily to a lack of preseason reps and plenty of new faces for the Giants, it should look a little bit better than it does right now. The Giants were held to just nine points on Sunday against the 49ers and didn’t take a single snap in the red zone. Even utilizing a base offense, it shouldn’t be this bad.

Good teams find a way to win, or at least make things competitive. The Giants did nothing to help themselves, and while Jones did make a number of mistakes to put his team in a hole, they had opportunities to take shots downfield but simply didn’t. The one gorgeous back shoulder play that Daniel Jones did throw was off-script and on the go.
