In his first season as head coach of the New York Giants, Brian Daboll was named the NFL's AP Coach of the Year on Thursday. A well deserved honor for the former Buffalo Bills' offensive coordinator, as he transformed a 4-13 mess into a playoff team, with help from his general manager, former Buffalo Bills' assistant GM, Joe Schoen.
This is no secret. The New York Giants need some offensive production. In week 8, prior to the bye, the Seattle Seahawks held quarterback Daniel Jones to 176 passing yards. That's not an alarmingly low number. However, when the total number of offensive yards totals 225 for the game, then the Giants have an issue they need to address.
New York Giants fans are enjoying their team's incredible turnaround. With a 6-2 record coming out of the bye week, Big Blue fans realize that a playoff birth is more than within reach. That is if the Giants can continue to play above expectations and win the games they "should" win, like against the Texans and then the Lions. If head coach Brian Daboll and company continue to hold serve, Thanksgiving Day at 4:30pm could be an epic holiday battle in Dallas. Who would have thought that at the start of the season??
