One of the first key moves NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen made this offseason was getting things done with wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins. Hodgins will be back in 2023 and he’s going to look to build off what turned out to be a memorable first season in Big Blue for him.

He was a reliable option for Daniel Jones. Hodgins obviously enjoyed getting back to work with head coach Brian Daboll, as he knew him from their time together with the Buffalo Bills.

Daboll and Hodgins have developed a strong bond, with the young wideout opening up about what makes him such a great leader. This quote from Hodgins is sure to bring a smile to a lot of faces.

This is just awesome to see from Hodgins. We’ve seen the complete and total change inside of the locker room now that Joe Judge is nowhere to be seen and Daboll has taken over this team. Earlier in the offseason for the Giants, star safety Xavier McKinney also had some amazing things to say about Coach Dabes.

From the moment he made his way to the Giants building, he went out of his way to make sure the players knew he was there to make them better. Daboll is beloved by everyone in East Rutherford and the fan base has fully embraced him.

Before Daboll joined the squad, the Giants hadn’t been to the postseason since 2016. After going 4-13 in 2021, not a lot of people expected the Giants to be competitve in 2022. The opposite was the case, as Big Blue went 9-7-1 and earned a Wild Card spot.

Not only that, but Daboll and Co. stunned the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card Round. That upset was thanks to brilliant showings from Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, Hodgins and others. The future sure looks bright for the NFC East side and NY supporters are thankful both Hodgins and Daboll are part of the massive culture change for the G-Men.
