The offense for the NY Giants has serious potential entering next campaign. With all the new faces in town, quarterback Daniel Jones finally has a supporting cast that should help him reach his full potential in East Rutherford.

Having said that, we can't forget about how vanilla the offense looked at times last season, with the aerial attack struggling to get going on a consistent basis. While things are looking great for offensive coordinator Mike Kafka these days, that doesn't mean people aren't worried about how things will turn out in 2023.

In a new piece, CBS Sports dropped its biggest red flags for each contender with Week 1 around the corner. For the Giants, it's the downfield attack that has CBS' Cody Benjamin worried.

The NY Giants will hope to be more explosive on offense this season

"Daniel Jones finally showcased franchise-level poise in 2022 under Brian Daboll. And the Giants finally got him some help this offseason, adding Darren Waller, Parris Campbell and Jalin Hyatt -- among others -- at pass catcher. But all of their key acquisitions have to prove they can stay healthy, and Jones still has yet to prove he can air it out consistently when it matters most."

Remember when Darius Slayton said it's time for the Ferraris to leave the garage this fall and winter? The veteran wideout, back on a two-year deal, is ready for the offense to be explosive this campaign. Obviously, Brian Daboll and Kafka would love for that to happen too.

The fact of the matter is that Jones is going to have to take more downfield shots in the coming months. Adding Parris Campbell, Darren Waller, Jalin Hyatt and more is only going to help Big Blue try and record more head-turning plays.

Jones is coming off the best year of his career, but only tossing for 15 touchdowns had people calling him out in a negative way. Let's hope that won't be the case this regular season - and (knock on wood) the playoffs too.
