3 ways that Mike Kafka can improve the NY Giants offense as play caller
By Zak Musso
1. Daniel Jones to run more?
One of the most underrated aspects about the Giants offense is Daniel Jones’ athleticism. On the infamous play in Philadelphia in 2020, when Jones ran 80 yards down the field before tripping, he maxed his top speed out at 20.64 miles per hour, the fastest recorded time by a quarterback up until that point in the season, even faster than Lamar Jackson or Kyler Murray.
In his three-year career, Jones has rushed 172 times for 1,000 yards and five touchdowns. Last season, Jones ran for 298 yards despite missing six games, which ranked 10th in the NFL. If he played the full 17, he would have been on pace to finish in the top five.
With all the explosive weapons and the upgraded offensive line this season, Jones will have more space to operate with. If the Giants weapons can speed the field, it will open up more lanes for Jones to run. If the Giants continue to utilize Jones’ legs, the Giants will have one more offensive avenue which defenses will have to game plan for.
