Each of the past two years, the Giants have finished in 31st place in total yards and scoring.
With head coach Brian Daball now leading the team’s offense, that ranking should improve significantly in 2022.
The former Bills offensive coordinator put together a unit that finished second in both points and yards in 2020. Last season, Buffalo finished third in points and fifth in total yards.
Now that the Giants have completed their off-season program, it’s clear that Daboll is bringing some new concepts to the team’s scheme.
Although the receiver Sterling Shepard hasn’t fully trained in the spring because he’s still recovering from an Achilles rupture, Shepard still appreciates what DaBall has brought to the table.
“He has the potential for a lot of big plays and also some unusual plays,” Shepard said in an interview with the team’s website. “I think the fans will love it. We just have to keep doing our part and commissioning“.
Shepard noted that the increase in pre-click motion should set the device up for more success, saying it’s “moving parts all day long”.
“That’s good because you’re getting man-zone readings,” Shepard said. “[That’s] #1 thing and this offense is fast play so whatever you can catch an inch with what the defense is going to do is fine. That’s what these movements are really for, to get data on the man-zone.
Shepard caught 36 passes for 366 yards with a touchdown in 2021. Provided he is fully healthy for the upcoming season, Shepard should be an important target for Daniel Jones — who also has something to prove for 2022;
