There is no doubt that the New York Giants are going to target an offensive-minded guy to be their next head coach. Josh McDaniels, the New England Patriots offensive coordinator, is going to be their top target.

McDaniels, 41, has been the Patriots offensive coordinator since the 2012 season. He’s going to be one of the top guys considered from head coaching jobs this off-season.

He’s an offensive mind that has worked so well with living legend Tom Brady. The Patriots have won the AFC East every since that McDaniels has been back in Foxborough, Massachusetts (six straight).

McDaniels also helped guide the Patriots to two Super Bowls in 2014 and 2016. They are the favorite to win another Super Bowl this year.

The Patriots are first in the league with 282.3 passing yards per game. They are third overall with 28.8 points per game.

Despite having several running backs, the Patriots are tied for 13th with 116.1 rushing yards per game.

Brady also leads the league with 4,387 passing yards. They are leading the league with 398.5 yards per game.

In contrast to the Giants, who were horrendous with Ben McAdoo, who was outcoached despite being considered an offensive guy, are 23rd in the league with 309.8 yards per game. Of the teams in the latter part of this statistic, the Baltimore Ravens, who are 26th with 304.9 yards per game, even has a chance of making the playoffs.

The Giants offense was 18th in the league with 223.9 passing yards per game, even without Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall for much of the season. McAdoo’s play-calling was 31st with 15.1 points per game.

They also were horrendous in the run game with 85.9 yards per game for 29th in the league.

The Giants will target an offensive mind to replace interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo next season. McDaniels will be the perfect guy — he knows what it is like to work with a Hall of Fame quarterback and has been mentored by the great Bill Belichick over the years.

Taking over the Giants, if they keep Eli Manning, McDaniels would be in a better situation than he was in two seasons as the Denver Broncos head coach. Manning, who is 13th in the league entering the season finale with 3,336 passing yards.

While Manning has had some bumps in the road, it was mainly McAdoo’s horrible play-calling — and a terrible offensive line — that caused the Giants to be the second-worst team in the league this season.
