Giants’ Freddie Kitchens: “Nothing’s changing” with him calling plays

Substitue play-caller says “our offense is our offense”

Freddie Kitchens

Freddie Kitchens will be calling the plays on Sunday for the New York Giants after offensive coordinator Jason Garrett tested positive for COVID-19. Kitchens on Friday said that “nothing’s changing with our offense” with him as the play-caller.

“Our offense is our offense,” Kitchens said. “We’re just going to try to execute on a consistent basis truly. I couldn’t be any more truthful than that.”

Kitchens said it is “ironic” that he will end up calling plays against the Browns, the team he was head coach of a season ago.

“Really it’s the next game. It truly is just the next game,” Kitchens said. “it just so happens we had a guy go down this week.”

Kitchens said offensive quality control coach Bobby Blick will handle the tight end coaching responsibilities during Sunday’s game.

Kitchens said “nothing will truly change until we get to Sunday” in terms of his coaching responsibilities for the week.

“Jason’s still in the Zoom meetings with us,” Kitchens said.

Kitchens also wanted no part of describing his play-calling style.

“I just try to do the best I can for the team, the coaching staff, our players and try to the best of my ability to put players in position to make plays,” Kitchens said.
