Report: Jason Garrett's NY Giants Offense Will Look 'Similarly Based' To 2019 Cowboys


DALLAS (KRLD) - With former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett now running the offense, New York Giants will be implementing an offense that will be very familiar to Cowboys fans. 

Per multiple reports, including one from NFL Network's Kimberly Jones, Giants head coach Joe Judge said that the new offense is going to be 'similarly based' to what Garrett ran in Dallas for 10 seasons, and will not carry over in any way from last season. 

Interesting (to me) that #NYG HC Joe Judge said the offense is “not a carryover” in any way from what NYG ran last year. Said it will be “similarly based” off what Jason Garrett ran in Dallas.

Other reports have also noted, however, that the scheme will be tailored to fit the talent that the Giants already have in the building, including second-year quarterback Daniel Jones and third-year running back, Saquon Barkley. 

Last season under the prior regime, the Giants ranked 23rd in the NFL in total offense averaging 338.5 yards per game in the regular season, including 18th in passing offense, and 19th in rushing offense. New York also averaged 21.3 points per game, ranking them 18th in the league in that category as well. 

The Cowboys, on the other hand, were one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL in 2019, ranking first in the league in total yards per game with 431.5 yards per game, second in passing at 296.9 yards per game, fifth in rushing yards with 134.6 yards per contest, and sixth in scoring with 27.1 points per game. 

Though Kellem Moore held the title of offensive coordinator, Jason Garrett's fingerprints were indeed all over the offensive structure for Dallas in 2019, and while the Cowboys offense often times struggled with predictability and mistakes, Garrett's track record as an offensive mind, at least on paper, speaks for itself.

The Giants will open the 2020 season at home against the Pittsburg Steelers on September 14th.
