3 ways that Mike Kafka can improve the NY Giants offense as play caller
By Zak Musso
2. Be creative
Every explosive offense in the NFL is immensely creative. Over the last couple of seasons, the Giants offense has been anything but explosive, and a big reason for that was their lack of creativity. Luckily for the Giants, Kafka and Daboll are known for having worked with two of the most explosive and creative offenses in the NFL.
Both Kansas City and Buffalo have found creative ways to get their best players the football. In Kansas City, Kafka was part of an offense that lined up speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill (now with Miami) in the backfield and handed the ball off to him. The Chiefs also famously line up tight end Travis Kelce as the quarterback and run read options. On this touchdown, both Hill and Kelce were in the backfield at the same time!
In Buffalo, the Bills lined up Isaiah McKenzie in the backfield and gave him the ball often on reverses. Kakfa has the perfect complement of weapons to do this in New York. Toney and Robinson could slide in perfectly like Hill and take handoffs in the backfield.
Barkley has made some highlight reel catches, so lining him up outside as a receiver could be a matchup nightmare. Kafka has plenty of weapons to utilize, so as long he stays as creative as Kansas City, it should be fun to watch the Giants offense this season.
