The Giants (2-0) are averaging only 20 points per game, which puts them in a three-way tie for 15th in the 32-team NFL.

They have scored three offensive touchdowns in two games. They scored only one TD with Golladay benched in last week’s 19-16 win over Carolina.

Daboll confirmed that GM Joe Schoen collaborates with the head coach on creating the gameday roster every week.

Often there is a separation between a GM controlling the 55-man roster and the head coach controlling the 48-man gameday roster. Not so here with this regime.

“Joe and I talk about everything, whether it’s gameday roster, the whole roster, practice squad,” Daboll said. “I think it’s a really good working relationship, and we talk about everything. I ask him for advice sometimes. He asks me for advice sometimes. He’s a good partner to have.”


Daboll explained the process of how they collaborate on game day rosters.

“Coaches give input, give [me] input. I’ll go to Joe and say ‘Hey, this is what we’re thinking, this is who we’d like to bring up,” Daboll said. “And Joe has always been like, ‘Great.’ There’s not been, like ‘Ah, I think we should do this guy.’ We kind of set a game plan together of what we need. He’s been outstanding. And sometimes I’ll be like, ‘Hey, what do you think of this? Which I think is healthy.”

Kafka said the offensive staff and Daboll will “continue to evaluate” whether Golladay will play more against Dallas.

“Anytime you put on that helmet and you’re out there on the field, you have to have the ability to execute what you’re called upon,” Kafka said. “Kenny’s done a great job in practice, he’s working hard, he’s working his tail off this week. So I’m happy for him for that.
