Brian Daboll on setting high bar: 'It starts all over'

BRIAN-DABOLL-DANIEL-JONES

PHOENIX – During his news conference at the NFL Annual Meeting here, Brian Daboll was reminded by a reporter that he set a high bar in his first season as a head coach, leading the Giants to a playoff victory and being named NFL Coach of the Year.

Daboll was unimpressed.

"Got smoked in the playoffs," he said of the Giants' 38-7 divisional round loss in Philadelphia.

So, what must he do to ensure the Giants don't experience the same fate in 2023?

"It starts all over," Daboll said. "I don't get that far down the road. Just focus on today. Try to get better at the things we can get better at. We have a long way to go in terms of time, and we have a long way to go in terms of improvement. You all know this: What you do one year has no correlation to what you do the next year. What you do one game has no correlation to what you do the next game. I'm not saying we're starting at ground zero, because they know our system and there's a lot of things they know more than they knew last year, but in terms of where we're at and the things we've got to do, we've got a long climb ahead of us."
