It’s no question that the New York Giants are struggling offensively this season, as the whole offensive front has been a shell of themselves in 2013, and have failed to get anything going. It is also without a doubt that the Dallas Cowboys are slowly losing patience with their head coach in Jason Garrett, and Jerry Jones may be looking elsewhere to lead the team next season.
Hmm … This seems to be a perfect mix, now doesn’t it? Many have questioned the play calling of current Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, and for good reason. Out of nowhere, the offense has fallen from the powerhouse it once was not too long ago, to one of the league’s worst.
With Gilbride possibly out the door in 2014, this opens a spot for a new offensive-minded coach to take the reigns of Eli Manning and company, and who better than one of the best, most strategic offensive coaches in the NFL? And even better, from an NFC East rival? It’s genius.
It is no question that Garrett has a knack for leading an offense, as he has made quarterback Tony Romo look like an elite passer throughout the past few years, and has opened up a once dismal running game to one of the NFL’s most feared with DeMarco Murray.
Garrett can come in and completely turn around the Giants’ offense in no time, especially with an offseason to build upon the offensive line. There is no question the talent is there, but what could be holding this team back is an OC. Gibride just isn’t cutting it.
Don’t forget, Garrett could also give great insight on the Cowboys’ plays and tendencies, which would be a huge gain, as the Giants face them twice a year, and are arguably in the greatest rivalry in professional sports.
If Garrett is fired, look for the Giants to take a look at him to fill the void the offense has had left empty all of 2013.
