OC Mike Kafka has high expectations for the Giants offense

New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka and head coach Brian Daboll believe they are building an elite offensive line.

The pairing of Kafka and Daboll is also trying to figure out if quarterback Daniel Jones is the future of their franchise.

From what the Giants have seen so far, that decision is still up in the air for Jones. He has shone at times, but many of the struggles that have plagued him in the past are still present.

Kafka recently spoke to reporters about Daniel Jones and the offensive as a whole. Discussing his fourth-year quarterback, the Giants’ offensive coordinator had a lot to say.

Kafka praised his quarterback, saying, “Daniel is doing a great job. He’s doing a great job. We throw him a lot offensively; He saw a lot defensively and that will only help us.

After paying tribute to Jones, Kafka also took a moment to acknowledge the entire offensive staff and players.

He said: “I’m really proud of where the staff has come from where we started to where we are now. I’m really proud of where the players are, from where we started to where we are now. Again, we’re still going through the process I keep emphasizing with these guys. Keep with this process, keep learning, keep throwing and we’ll keep getting better.”

Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka took on a Giants offense in 2021 that was among the worst in league history. They are now determined to fix the mess left in their wake by the old regime.

History of Daboll and Kafka

Both Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka played roles in the success of two of the best offenses in recent NFL history.

From 2018 to 2021, Daboll was the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. He helped transform the Bills into an elite offensive unit. That offense ended the season with the third most points per game in the NFL. They averaged 28.4 points per competition during the season.

Daboll was also credited with helping quarterback Josh Allen become the player he is now. If he can help Daniel Jones down the same path as Allen, this Giants team could have their quarterback of the future.

Like Daboll, Kafka also played an essential role in the success of an elite offensive. Before joining the Giants, Kafka was both quarterback coach and passing coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Both the Bills and Chiefs have some of the best offenses in NFL history. This offensive action by the Giants is expected to very much emulate those two teams.

Kafka was asked two questions about the giant’s offense. When would it take on a life of its own and how long would it reflect both the Bills and Chiefs?

In response, Kafka explained that this had already begun. He said, “Well, I think so. I think this has already happened and happened. But I think it’s an ongoing process. I don’t think this will ever stop. You grow in it and you learn what we do best, what our guys can and want to do, I think that’s a big thing, and to keep working on that. So, I don’t think everyone stops, I think it’s our system, I think we’ve made a lot of these changes, we’ve learned a lot through camp, and we’ll continue to do so.

The Giants’ 2021 offense ended the season with the second-lowest points earned. If this new regime wants to bring in past things that have made it successful, it would make sense. Kafka’s statement that this new system has already begun to take shape on its own should be encouraging. With an offensive with so many athletic playmakers, the potential is limitless.


Tyrod Taylor’s influence

While the Giants signed Daniel Jones, backup Tyrod Taylor is still around worth keeping an eye on.

Throughout his career, Taylor has been a strong player when given the opportunity. As he continues to be a veteran on this Giants team, he continues to receive praise from those around him.

Kafka was asked about Taylor and what he’s seen of the veteran quarterback. When Kafka responded, he was aware of how solid Taylor was, saying, “I love working with Tyrod. He puts all the work into it. He’s a true pro before training, after training, in meetings and on the field. He does a great job of communicating with Daniel and giving him some insights – he’s an experienced guy so he’s seen a lot and done a lot. He’s got great skills – he’s mobile, he can run around a bit, he’s a really smart guy and he gets the O-Line on the same page and he gets what he’s trying to get done from a protection standpoint. I was really happy with what Tyrod did.”

As previously mentioned, this is an all or nothing year for Daniel Jones. If he should fight, there’s a real possibility that Taylor gets an opportunity to take over the field.

In recent practices, Taylor was seen taking on first-team reps. This is treated as a precaution in case Jones goes down. This allows Taylor to work with first-team unity. But it might still be worth keeping an eye on.
