Following a 30-10 loss Monday night against the Bucs, New York Giants Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett was fired on Tuesday. Despite only having less than 2 seasons at the position, the Giants still decided to part ways with Garrett and hand over the play calling to tight ends coach Freddie Kitchens. While Garrett ran the offense, the Giants never averaged over 19 points per game. Joe Judge was clear in his press conference following the loss to the bucs that the Giants need to score more. He said,
“We have to do a better job of scoring points, I know it sounds pretty obvious and to the point with it. But I’m going to keep it pretty blunt right there. We have to do a better job of putting our players in position to make plays. We have too many good players. We have to put them in better position to capitalize on it. That’s it.”
Albeit a small sample size Garrett struggled mightily to produce during his time with the Giants during his tenure he ranked 28th in yards per play, 30th in points, 31st in yards, and 31st in 3rd down conversion.
A similar interim situation occurred for Kitchens in 2018 while he was a member of the Browns’ staff.
Hopefully for Giant fans, the omission of Garret will allow for a more progressive and innovative philosophy to spark the offense.
