๐Ÿˆ Giants Fans #FacePalm Jason Garrett Offense

If your brand new head coach is a special teams/defense guy and you then hire an offensive coordinator that has been coaching in the league since 2005 you have a pretty good idea of what you are getting with that hire. After 15 years in the league there are enough stats surrounding your work where you're not going to be sneaking up on anyone. That's why Giants Fans giving the #FacePalm to the Jason Garrett Offense is so mystifying. The Cowboys were #1 in the NFL last year in yards from scrimmage. How is that not an upgrade?

The Jason Garrett Offense

The numbers speak for themselves. So how does a Giants fan get onboard with the Jason Garrett offense after hearing so many Cowboys faithful bad-mouth the very same thing for the last 5 years? The numbers do indeed speak for themselves, let's listen.

Mailbag: Giants Offense Under Jason Garrett?

the Numbers

  • 3 Super Bowl Rings as a backup QB (they count)
  • NFL 2nd best offense in OC rookie year (2007)
  • HOT candidate for HC job Ravens/Falcons (2008)
  • 1,841-yard regular season RB (2014)
  • Went 13-3 with a rookie QB (2016)
  • #1 offense in NFL 2019

There you go. Sure there are many other factors we can throw in but the numbers that really matter are listed above.

the Fit

Garrett is not a west coast guy. He's not a 5 wide specialist. However, if you have a heady QB, an elite RB, an OL with a few key pieces already in place, a decent TE, and not too much at WR then the Jason Garrett offense is the round peg in the round hole. He has zero problems giving the rock to a RB 30+ times a game. He understands what type of schemes to run to helps his OL get hats on players in the second level. He has an idea of how to call plays so his QB can get rid of the ball quickly and avoid negative plays. Play-action, power-running, getting your TE 1-1 and taking the occasional 9 route shot downfield if you have the personnel to run this type of attack he is the guy to put at the helm. He is the perfect fit.

the Clap Back

As long as Garrett was with the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has driven the narrative. And the spin on any given year is the reason for the 'Boys not doing as well as expected is anyone's fault but Jerry's. The steady stream of players with issues and guys who reported to Jerry versus the head coach was a primary force in the underachieving club. But Garrett had some growing pains with game management that got magnified in the Dallas microscope that contributed greatly to the CowboysNation perception of the man.

The head coach will handle that task in New York letting Garrett focus on what he does best, the offense.

Like him, hate him. The New York Giants offense was rated 16th in the league last season. Look for a change in 2020. A change for the better.
