Giants’ Brian Daboll among bottom third in NFL head coach rankings

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll was named the NFL’s Coach of the Year in his first season on the job in 2022 and then slipped back into the pack after a 6-11 showing last season.

Dallas Robinson of Pro Football Network recently ranked all 32 NFL head coaches in which he explains how Daboll has suddenly become very ordinary.

22) Brian Daboll, New York Giants

Regular-season record: 15-18-1 (.456)

Winner of the NFL’s 2022 Coach of the Year award, Brian Daboll went through it in 2023. Daniel Jones missed several games with a concussion before suffering a season-ending torn ACL, and the Giants were eventually forced to roll with undrafted free agent QB Tommy DeVito under center. Daboll’s sideline blowups became a talking point, while his turbulent relationship with DC Wink Martindale eventually led to the latter’s resignation.

Daboll opened his Giants career with seven wins in his first nine games but then things started to flatten out fast. Sure, the Giants made it to the playoffs and even won a game in 2022, but it was evident the initial shine had vanished off the apple.

Since Week 11 of 2022, the Giants have gone 9-17-1 (including playoffs) and have been classified by many a media talking head as a “dumpster fire.”

This after nearly a decade of ineptitude, poor management, and bad luck was the last thing Giant fans expected to happen. The 2022 playoff experience appears to have been fool’s gold. At least potentially.

However, Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen still maintain the support of ownership but need to win this season nonetheless.
