Jason Garrett looks as awkward in Giants colors as you’d think (Photo)

Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants

Longtime Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is now in Giants colors, and it takes some getting used to

Garrett signed on to be the New York Giants offensive coordinator, and by doing so abandoned his Cowboys roots tenfold. While Garrett’s head coaching qualifications are decent at best, he’s proven himself as an offensive mind previously in Dallas, and helped mold Dak Prescott into one of the best young quarterbacks in football. If he can do the same in New York, the Giants will have a new face of their franchise in Daniel Jones to pair with all-world talent Saquon Barkley.

Joe Judge, Freddie Kitchens and Garrett make a nice trio on the sidelines in the Meadowlands, but it’s already odd seeing the 54-year-old former Dallas QB and coach wearing Giants blue.

Jason Garrett can revolutionize the Giants offense

Barkley should benefit from Garrett’s system right away, as the Giants blocking scheme ought to benefit the Penn State product in similar fashion to Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas. With a young bell-cow leading the way, Garrett can help groom Jones into a star.

Judge, for one, respects Garrett’s potential moving back to OC.

“I’ve known about Jason for a long time, not only through the general public as well-known as he is as head coach of the Cowboys,” Judge said, per ESPN. “There were guys I worked with that I came across in my career at both Alabama and at the New England Patriots that worked with Jason through their time in Miami with him. They consistently all reflected on how smart he is, how great a teacher he is and how his perspective of the game was through a different lens than most coaches. And when he sees it, he’s able to communicate it and paint that mental image to the players. And he does a fantastic job of making in-game adjustments.”

Judge’s faith in Garrett speaks to the amount of responsibility he’ll have from Week 1 on. Even in some new digs, Garrett’s ability to lead an offense won’t be unfamiliar for long.
