Mike Kafka continues to bring the NY Giants offense down with his decison making

Outside of pass-rusher Azeez Ojulari, virtually no one had a good game in Week 14 for the NY Giants taking on the Philadelphia Eagles. The players looked rough and the exact same can be said for the coaching staff. Once again, one assistant in particular is receiving plenty of hate from Big Blue supporters: offensive coordinator Mike Kafka.

After the 20-20 tie against the Commanders, people were hoping that the first-year offensive coordinator would open up the playbook a bit and make some magic happen against the (at the time) 11-1 Eagles. That didn’t go down and Philly was able to record their 12th win on the year. The Giants offense looked sluggish from start to finish. That’s on Kafka.

NY Giants fans are calling for Mike Kafka to be fired after Eagles loss

Brian Daboll stuck by Kafka this week, saying that he wasn’t going to take over as the team’s play-caller. How much longer can Daboll afford to leave Kafka in charge of those duties? The offense continues to play poorly at the start of games and things don’t get much better in the second half at all. Fans have had it.


In Week 12 and Week 13, the Giants only scored seven points in the second half. That was the same against Philly, but a garbage-time Tyrod Taylor touchdown to Richie James pushed things to 15 points in the final 30 minutes for the G-Men. In the loss to Dallas, the only points in the second half also came late in the fourth quarter, in meaningless fashion.

When games are on the line and the NY offense needs to get the job done, the unit falters. Again, this is on Kafka. It’s his job to put Daniel Jones and his playmakers in the best position possible to move the ball and move the sticks.

Time and time again we’re seeing poor drives being recorded. There’s four games left in the campaign. The offense must show improvement in order for the dream of making the playoffs to remain alive. Countless eyes will be on Kafka, but we don’t have much faith in the OC. We don’t blame you if you’re feeling the same way.
