1. Big Blue's offense lacks creativity early on
Aside from the 58-yard missile Jones launched to explosive rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt to jumpstart the Giants’ second-half comeback against the Cardinals in Week 2, the team has been unable to turn plays into large gains. Ideally, the team gives more snaps to Hyatt and continues to use his elite speed to make big plays. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case vs. SF. In Week 3 he played just 16 snaps
Parris Campbell, whom the Giants signed this offseason, ran a 4.31 40-yard dash coming out of college. That type of blazing speed needs to be exploited and incorporated into an offense that is sorely lacking dynamic play. However, Campbell’s average depth of target in Week 3 against the 49ers was 3.9 yards per the NFL’s Next Gen Stats. Campbell had six receptions in Week 3 yet only 24 yards to show for it.
It’s time for Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka to take the training wheels off Danny Dimes and this offense and let him sling the ball around. The play of the offensive line has been rough and Andrew Thomas missing Monday Night Football will hurt, but this offense needs to start taking some chances.
