2. Mike Kafka will learn from his mistakes and finally coach an aggressive game
Considering how horrid Mike Kafka’s play calling was in the Giants Week 13 matchup against Washington, we are very hopeful he can learn from his mistakes and cook up an offense that will make things difficult for the Commanders.
In Week 13, the Giants started off with their usual slow-paced offense of running the ball and almost never passing. However, after Kafka discovered that Daniel Jones can in fact throw the football, the Giants scored 20 unanswered points.
However, this is where everything went wrong, as after going up 20-13, Kafka shut down the offense, resulting in seven possessions in a row in which the Giants punted the football away. This gross form of offense, if you can even call it that, cost the Giants the game.
There are absolutely zero reasons for any team to take their foot off the gas once they go up against an opponent, especially when said team is only up by one touchdown. However, Kafka did exactly that and the team suffered the consequences.
This week, there are absolutely zero excuses for Kafka not to turn things around and come out slinging against the Commanders. Washington’s defense had almost no answers when Jones threw the ball, so despite the lack of NFL caliber receivers, Kafka must let Jones be aggressive early on.
