With the way everything went for the NY Giants offense last season, it's clear that some big changes are needed for the 2024 campaign. Could one of those changes be head man Brian Daboll taking over the offensive play-calling? Things appear to be headed in that direction.

Fans have had several issues with offensive coordinator Mike Kafka over the last two seasons. Whether it be his questionable decision making or lack of aggressiveness, there have been several calls for Kafka to take a back seat. While he was promoted to assistant head coach, it indeed looks like it will be Daboll who will be running the offense in '24:

While, like Daboll said, a final decision of who the offensive play-caller won't happen until later in the summer, it's still interesting to see him make such a change. Last season, Daboll reportedly took away the play-calling duties from Kafka, including during the Week 2 comeback win over the Cardinals.

Daboll's style of offense allows for a much smoother flow down the field and opens things up for everyone involved. When he was the offensive coordinator for the Bills, Daboll was one of the best assistants in the NFL, so letting him do his thing for the NY offense could be exactly what's needed to get this unit back on track. Add in a healthy Daniel Jones, an improved offensive line and No. 6 pick Malik Nabers, and there are finally some reasons to be excited about that side of the ball.

Kafka is a fine play-caller, and a lot of the criticisms held against him are often overblown, but there's no doubt that he is much more passive than Daboll. Once Week 1 gets here, the Giants will be hosting the Minnesota Vikings and the hope is Jones and Co. can put on a show.

By camp, we should know if Daboll or Kafka will be calling plays for that showdown, but all signs are pointing to Coach Dabes taking the lead there. With this being Year 3 of his time in East Rutherford too, he must do whatever is necessary to make sure the offense doesn't take another step backwards.
