Giants receivers excited about freedom of Brian Daboll’s offense – Giants Wire

Under former head coach Joe Judge and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, New York Giants receivers essentially had one job: to run the route that was called and nothing else.

There was little pre-snap motion and even fewer options once the ball was in the quarterbacks hands. It was robotic.

Youre able to just win. You dont have to run the pen-and-paper version of your route every time, Kadarius Toney told Giants Huddle of Brian Dabolls new offense. Its not set in stone, like, no matter which way the cornerback is playing you have to run that route.

A lot of offensive coaches have the pen-and-paper mentality like you have to run it exactly like that every time. But Dabes gives us a lot of freedom, a lot of leeway to win. Thats the object of playing football to win. He just gives that option.

Its clear the players are thrilled with that change, but it also comes with its own set of challenges. After years in a much more conservative and simplistic offense, Dabolls approach opens things up.

Instead of a singular route and nothing to think about, Giants receivers now have an overwhelming amount of options.

Moving parts all day long, Sterling Shepard said. It kind of gets overwhelming whenever you look at the motion list too. They have it broken down on our [tablets], so when you look at the motion list, its so many different motions that you can do. Itll be good getting a lot of our playmakers moving around. Its going to be tough on defenses.

And its a lot of one-words, so you have to know the formation and you have to know the play concept all in one word. Thats where it gets pretty tough. Usually, you have a full play concept and theyll read everything out to you. But this is just one word, and you have to remember it.

Learning and implementing the new system may be like drinking from a firehose for these Giants, but they know that itll benefit everyone in the long run both individually and as a team.

It has potential for a lot of big plays, and it has some fancy plays in there as well. I think the fans will love it. Weve just to keep doing our part and putting in work, Shepard said.

It just allows you to get a lot more one-on-ones and get a lot of space, rookie wide receiver WanDale Robinson said. Create mismatches for the defense. They have to communicate and things like that. Whenever youre moving and playing fast, defenses cant communicate, and you get a lot of big plays out of that.

In addition to the receivers, you have to imagine quarterback Daniel Jones is also thrilled with this change. It plays more to his strengths and that alone should lead to better production.
