3. The improvements with stability on offense

One of the setbacks that Daniel Jones had early in his career was having to learn a new offense with different coaches and coordinators.

Jones took a step back after the success he had as a rookie under Pat Shurmur when the Giants brought in Joe Judge and Jason Garrett, as the style of offense under those two nearly ruined Jones and his promising career. Remember John Mara’s exact words, “We’ve really screwed him up.”

Under Daboll, and returning offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, the Giants are building some stability and continuity with the offense. While Jones only threw for just 15 touchdown passes in 2022, Danny Dimes had success. Enough success to earn him a $160 million contract from the Giants that solidifies him as the current franchise quarterback.

Add in Darren Waller, who when healthy, can produce a 1,000-yard season, Parris Campbell, who has yet to even show his true potential, and Jalin Hyatt, who once torched Alabama for 200 yards and five touchdown catches, and the offense is slowly showing even more promise than it did from last year.

Plus, once Saquon Barkley returns from the contract situation, and the Giants putting a beast in the middle of the offensive line in John Michael Schmitz, and the Giants offense suddenly looks like it will be one that has to be feared in 2023. It will certainly help them come out on top of close contests.
