NFL 2020: With Saquon Barkley Out For The Season, Giants’ Hope For A Miracle From Garrett And Engram: Who would have expected such a tragic start of the season for the New York Giants? Losing a key player in the form of Saquon Barkley, the NFL 2020 season might taste bitter to the Giants in the days to come.
The responsibilities have now been shifted to the shoulders of the all-new offensive coordinator, Jason Garrett. He has to shape the path of the team for the entire season.”When you have a man like Saquon Barkley, lots of the offence is going to undergo him,” Garrett stated.
New Responsibilities And Opportunities Awaits For Garrett
Garrett, formerly a head coach of the Dallas Cowboys for 9½ years, was officially fired from his post. He currently serves the Giants as an offensive coordinator. It was a position which he was eyeing from days.
“The job that Jason Garrett has thought about if he let go from the Cowboys – and, of course, now he finally, mercifully was – the job that he’s thought about and the job that he’s discussed with his assistant coaches is the Giants job,” Rapoport reported.
Now, Garrett has got a bit of work after Saquon’s injury and needs to work out with new combinations in the team. With the absence of such an important player, Garrett knows the playbook needs to get reworked a little bit. But he’s confident in the game plan the team has in place.
He needs to make use of new talents in the form of Devonta Freeman, who seems to be a real bonus this season. Adapting and adjusting is what Garrett requires at this point to turn these adverse situations in their favour.
All Eyes Fixed On Evan Engram Now
Problems for the Giants continue as Shepherd Sterling too would miss at least three games till mid-October. The team now heavily depends on the performance of their tight end, Evan Engram. Everyone now looks up at Evan, who is their next-best option. Though his first six quarters this season were fairly lousy, he can prove to be a key asset for the Giants in the matches to come.
“It sucks dropping my brothers like that. I feel it’s on everyone on offence and everyone on our crew to kinda dig deep and are available in able to work laborious and carry out,’’ Engram stated. However, Saquon’s injury may come as a blessing in disguise for Engram.
It is Engram’s fourth season since he was the Giants’ No.1 pick in 2017. Let us see what happens in this NFL 2020.
