4. Coaching staff
While Daniel Jones will be dealing with his second coaching staff in as many seasons in the league, the new coaching staff could be looked at as a positive in regard to the progression of the Giants quarterback.
Under former head coach Pat Shurmur, the Giants offense often looked stagnant and the play-calling often looked predictable and vanilla in nature. Shurmur was often criticized for not relinquishing his offensive play-calling duties to Mike Shula or an offensive coordinator in general so that he could focus on the game management (another area where Shurmur struggled mightily).
The same criticism will not be cast on new Giants head coach Joe Judge, at least at the onset of his tenure, as he has the benefit of having new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett calling the plays. Say what you want about the former Cowboys head coach but he is undoubtedly one of the brightest offensive minds in the NFL.
His track record of developing young quarterbacks Tony Romo and Dak Prescott from afterthoughts on draft day, to superstar quarterbacks, is very impressive. In addition, the Cowboys often had one of the NFL’s most prolific offenses with Garrett managing the offensive duties.
The Giants hope that Garrett is able to translate his record of success in Dallas to this young Daniel Jones led offensive unit in New York. Garrett has also brought in his former backup quarterback in Dallas, Cooper Rush, to help Jones learn his offense.
Between head coach Joe Judge, offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, and offensive line coach Marc Colombo, there is a lot of reason to be optimistic about what this talented coaching group can bring to the high powered Giants offense. If history is any indicator of what the future holds, one would expect this group of coaches to play a significant role in the development of Daniel Jones in 2020.
