It’s been another frustratingly ugly season for the New York Giants as they are currently 3-7 and they have now parted ways with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett after less than two full seasons.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to most as the Giants’ offense has been horrid. The G-men are 25th in the NFL in scoring offense, the least touchdowns amongst all teams in the last two seasons. Though it must be made clear that the Giants had offensive problems before Garrett was hired as offensive coordinator, but the problems only continued after he was hired.
To make things worse, the Giants faced a series of injuries that caused many key players to play and didn’t allow for the unit to flourish as a whole. From Saquon Barkley, who missed 19 of the 26 games when Garrett was there, to receiver Sterling Shepard; many players were out of commission.
Still, however, many were frustrated with the Garrett era. In Monday night’s 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Giants offense stumbled to the tune of 215 total yards and a 1-for-9 conversion rate on third down. “I’ll make every decision based on what’s best for the team long-term,” said coach Joe Judge on the decision.
“Generally speaking, the offense’s job is to score points. I don’t believe we’re scoring enough points. It’s my job as the head coach to make sure I give our players an opportunity to go out there and make plays.”
