New York Giants’ new head coach Brian Daboll may have spent only a few days with his new team, but the former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator said he’s ready to get a coaching staff together to put players in the best position to win.
The offensive experience Daboll brings is what many say got him hired — the Giants’ head coach will be working with another first-round quarterback, Daniel Jones, just like he did with quarterback Josh Allen in Buffalo.
Daboll’s work with Allen helped build a top-tier offense for the Bills these past two seasons: averaging 31.3 PPG in 2020-21 and 28.4 PPG in 2021-22.
While Jones has not progressed over his first three seasons as the team had hoped, new general manager Joe Schoen said the team will build its offense around him.
Daboll emphasized that sentiment in his introductory press conference on Monday.
Daboll said the team will “implement a system that suits him” and bring in pieces that allow Jones to be the “best version of himself.”
“He’s got the right mindset, he’s got good size, there’s a lot of things to like about Daniel,” Daboll said. “We’ll just take it one day at a time. We’ll work with him, help him get better. … It takes a lot to raise a quarterback. He’s been around the block through these last three years with some different pieces. We’re going to try to give him some stability and just take it from there.”
Daboll said that he doesn’t think it is “fair to compare [Jones] to another guy that I was working with,” but many clearly hope that Daboll’s arrival leads to the kind of leap that Allen took.
While Daboll had more time with Allen at the start of his career, Jones is heading into his fourth season and there’s less time for the QB to progress before long-term decisions must be made.
For now, Jones seems to have the full support of Daboll.
