3 Areas Brian Daboll will improve the New York Giants’ offense
Area #1: Pre-snap motion and Deception
This will be a key item to watch in Daboll’s offense with the New York Giants in 2022.
The Giants failed to use enough motion in their passing or run game concepts in Jason Garrett’s offensive scheme. Much of the same followed with Freddie Kitchens once he took over the team’s offense. When the Giants did use motion, it was often useless and ineffective.
With Daboll, look for a lot more structured motion design with intent and creativity flowing through the offense. This all occurs before the ball is even snapped which gives the offense a variety of advantages. Primarily, using motion often makes the defense reveal itself or announce its intentions in their coverage scheme in an easier fashion for the QB and the offense overall to decipher.
Daboll used a heavy blend of motion and deception in the Bills’ offense. Oftentimes, he’d send one or multiple people in motion and line up in different formations before calling an audible into a new look. The point of doing these things is to distract and confuse the defense to keep them unsure of what’s coming and give the element of surprise to the offense.
