Looking back at the overall makeup of historically great offenses, a well-balanced, disciplined football team is usually a good recipe for winning games. They play complementary football and use each other’s success to create their own.

The legendary Dallas trio of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin should be a model for every young team trying to create an identity on offense. They dominated opposing defenses in the 1990s and much of that had to do with continuity, trusting each other, and of course, great coaching.

Big Blue obviously has a long way to go before reaching the success the Cowboys “Triplets” had, but the G-Men have the running back to make it happen. As we all know, a strong running game usually means good things for the passing attack.

Joe Judge spent the last several seasons as an assistant under Bill Belichick in New England. He appears to have the right mindset entering the offseason. Great talent at the key skill positions is one thing, but actually going out and executing is another.

In 2020, the NFC East will be wide open and while the New York Giants need to improve in many areas, the addition of Garrett will change the culture of Big Blue’s offense. Jones, Barkley, and Slayton are young, talented and in some way, flying under the radar.

There isn’t much “buzz” about the Giants young trio. After a year of playing together, the continuity they developed should light a fire in the fan base, moving forward.
