After weeks of wondering if NY Giants head coach Brian Daboll would have to find a new offensive coordinator, it looks like that's not going to happen. Mike Kafka had two interviews with the Seahawks, but the NFC West side ended up rocking with Mike Macdonald as its new head coach.

There was still some buzz that Kafka could still look to join a new team, even if it wasn't to run his own show. According to ESPN's Jordan Raanan, Kafka will stay put after all. Per Raanan's sources, Kafka is set to be Daboll's OC in 2024.

Reports had stated that Kafka and Daboll were on the outs and their relationship was fractured. While things may have been far from perfect in 2023, the two were able to talk this offseason and get on the same page. As we all know by now, that wasn't the case with Wink Martindale, who stormed out of Daboll's office as he resigned. Moving forward, though, Giants fans are hopeful Kafka can help the offense get back on the right track starting next season.

There's plenty of hope Kafka can get the job done for the Giants next fall and winter, but he didn't impress at times last season. According to insider Pat Leonard, this led to Daboll taking away play-calling duties from the second-year OC more than once. That fact is quite disappointing and alarming.

All the injuries for the Giants on offense didn't help at all, especially with Daniel Jones having his issues. Don't forget that All-Pro left tackle Andrew Thomas missed most of the early part of the year due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 1 vs. the Cowboys.

On top of that, star running back Saquon Barkley missed time with a high-ankle sprain. Jones, due to his neck injury and a torn ACL, only appeared in six games. For the Giants to reach their potential, they need every single playmaker to be at full health. If that's the case starting next September, then Kafka will be in the best position possible to silence his haters once and for all.
