The New York Giants have a complementary style of offensive play-calling.

At least that’s what offensive coordinator Mike Kafka said about the way Big Blue does things from an offensive coaching perspective.

Kafka has not been calling plays this spring.

It has mostly been head coach Brian Daboll.

According to insider Jordan Raanan, Kafka stated in his latest presser that his role is complementary to that of Daboll’s.

“Whatever decision he goes with, I’ll support,” Kafka recently said of Daboll.

Assistant HC and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka talked about not calling plays this spring. He’s says his role is to be “complementary to (Daboll).” Kafka has been getting feedback from players after plays and provides input in meetings.

Kafka: “Whatever (play-calling)…

It may not really matter who has been calling plays for the Giants recently.

This team finished 29th in total offense last season.

Sure, the case could be made that their starter in Daniel Jones went down with an ACL injury, but his performance hasn’t really been good enough over the last few years to say that losing him hurts the team.

Jones has a career record of 22-36-1 as an NFL starter.

He has thrown 62 touchdowns and 40 interceptions.

He has fumbled a whopping 46 times.

That is just not good enough.

New York has made the playoffs just once in the last five years and has never won 10 or more games in the regular season with Jones or Daboll.

To make matters worse, the team lost Pro Bowl running back Saquon Barkley to the arch-rival Philadelphia Eagles in free agency.

Nobody knows who this team’s best player is on offense.

It will be up to both Daboll and Kafka to find that great player and get this offense going before they lose their jobs.
