Will Jason Garrett be back for the New York Giants next season only after one season in New York?
The New York Giants finished 31st in the league in yards, points, and passing offense in the 2020 season. The G-Men also tired the New England Patriots for a league-low in touchdowns passes with only 12 on the season. With these low stats, why is it even a question for the Giants not to get rid of Garrett?
Second-year quarterback Daniel Jones was asked about Garrett’s future in New York, “I’m not sure I’m in a position to comment on that,” Jones said on Monday. “But I’ve certainly enjoyed learning from Coach Garrett. I’ve learned a ton of football, I’ve learned a ton of philosophy on offense, how he sees the game, what he’s learned in his time in the NFL as a player and a coach. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. I look forward to continuing that. I really enjoyed it.”
Jones did not have the success this season as he did in his rookie season under Pat Shurmur calling plays. Does Jones really want Garrett back in New York?
Jones was doing his part in saying he really enjoyed working with Garrett but never says I wish we could build from the season and get better next season. Jones was very short but respectful about Garrett’s time in New York.
If Jones wants to move on from Garrett’s play-calling, the Giants could turn towards the tight ends coach Freddie Kitchens to call plays. Kitchens called plays for the Cleveland Browns before getting the head coaching job in 2019. Also, the Giants could see what coaches get canned today that were former offensive coordinators or former head coaches.
I am surprised the Giants have not announced Garrett and New York parting ways yet. The New York Giants’ offense was just awful to watch all season long, and most of the issue was the play calling. Garrett’s system is old and needs to be revamped. The Giants need to get an offensive coordinator who can help develop Jones and not hurt him as Garrett has done.
