Sterling Shepard: Giants offense will be tough on defenses

The Giants hired Brian Daboll as their head coach because of the offensive acumen he displayed as the Bills’ offensive coordinator and he’s created at least one believer over the course of the team’s offseason program.

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard said he thinks the team’s fans will love the system that Daboll has put in place because “it has potential for a lot of big plays.” Shepard shared his belief that the amount of motion the team will be doing from snap to snap creates that potential and that it will stress opponents trying to slow the Giants down this fall.

“Moving parts all day long,” Shepard said, via the team’s website. “It kind of gets overwhelming whenever you look at the motion list too. They have it broken down on our [tablets], so when you look at the motion list, it’s so many different motions that you can do. It’ll be good getting a lot of our playmakers moving around. It’s going to be tough on defenses.”

It’s been a while since the Giants have made things tough on anyone and Shepard may not have a lot of people hopping on the bandwagon right now given the makeup of the roster, but a few good performances to open the regular season should get some more people on board with the Daboll way.

    So, it appears, he is a genius when he is coaching Josh Allen, Stephon Diggs and Cole Beasley, and he’s not very smart when he is coaching average players.

  2. I was unaware the the New York Nightmara Family Crime Syndicate acquired a competent QB in the off-season. The tired one you have in reality runs at the slightest challenge. No one is scared of him.

    So Bill Bellichick was 36-44 as head coach of the Browns – and in 22 seasons in New England has 2 losing records – his first season (5-11) and 2020 (7-9). He has averaged 11.5 wins and 4.5 wins over that period of time. Doesn’t a coach get credit for evolving and making his players better? One player doesnt make a team….

    Talk is cheap. The Bills did not have a strong offense until Josh Allen matured.

    Bills did not have a strong offense until they signed Stephon Diggs (fixed it for you) 🙂

  5. Turning the ball over in their own red zone is tough on their defense. Maybe that’s what he means…

  6. True dat. Turnovers, short fields, and not being able to convert 3rd downs are tough on your own defense.

    You just proved my point with Bellichick. When he lost Brady, he has gone 17-16 on two seasons, has not won the division, only 1 playoff appearance and has not won a playoff game. He was a genius when he was coaching arguably the greatest player ever to play, and now is middle of the pack coach. And Bruce Arians was a middle of the pack coach until Brady showed up, and he became a SB champion HC.

    Why did Sean McVay get rid of Jared Goff and trade for Matthew Stafford? If he was a genius as everyone says he is, he should be able to win a SB with Goff. What happened to Sean Payton after Drew Brees left? They went 9-8, didn’t make the playoffs, and Payton quit. If he was such a great coach, they should be able to win without a top 5 all-time QB.

    It’s a player driven league, as all sports are. If you have great players, you will win. If you have bad players, you will lose. If you have average players, you will be mediocre.

    BTW – Last year, I saw Josh Allen make play after play after play when the designed play by Daboll broke down, and a lesser QB would have taken a sack or TO, and he turned it into a big play or TD. But I guess Daboll is a genius simply by telling Allen to take the snap from center.

  9. He was misunderstood by reporters…he meant their offense will be tough on their own defense
