Good morning, New York Giants fans!
... almost immediately after drafting Robinson in the second round, Schoen downplayed any rumors about trading Toney. Instead, he suggested that having multiple guys with similar skill sets only makes the Giants a stronger team.
If Daboll can replicate the success he had in Buffalo with another similar-sized receiver, Isaiah McKenzie, with Toney and Robinson, Schoen won’t be wrong. McKenzie is another 5-foot-8 receiver who lines up either outside or in the slot and uses his speed to win matchups off the line of scrimmage.
It’s very likely that the Giants’ new head coach saw some of McKenzie’s skill set in Robinson, and the latter will probably fill a similar role in New York’s offense. Daboll liked to put McKenzie in motion to run jet sweeps, putting the ball in his hands and letting him make plays with his speed and explosiveness.
Who knows if Brian Daboll can win consistently with Daniel Jones, but the calendar is at least inviting a rebound for this franchise. Four of their first six fall at home, and one of the two road games in that span comes on a neutral field in London. They play consecutive home games three different times. And after their nicely positioned Week 9 bye, they get the Texans and Lions before a seven-game stretch that includes five divisional games. They could be the Eagles of 2022: a holdover young QB with a new offensive coach capitalizing on a weak schedule to surprise out of the East.
