New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll has immediately made an impact in his first year of being a head coach.
Daboll has taken a Giants team with little offensive power led by a quarterback whose future in is doubt, who has not played an actual meaningful game in late December for a good couple of years, and has turned them into a potential playoff team overnight.
This may be down to his risk-taking on certain plays, which may sometimes not work.
However, the manner in which Daboll responds when questioned about these plays shows that he is a leader for this team.
"Every decision that's made, you can put on me."

“Every decision that’s made, you can put on me.”
These are the words of someone who knows well that football is a game of ups and downs.
As we have seen in Daboll’s short career, his risky play-calling can give the Giants success, as we saw in their opening-day victory over Tennessee.
But, it can also lead to the team’s downfall and could be the reason why they lose games, or as we saw this week, tie games that should have been won.
By taking full responsibility and ownership of every play, Daboll is showing that he is not only a true leader but a team player.
He could have easily blamed Daniel Jones or the officials for missing a clear pass interference penalty as the reason in which the Giants tied.
But he did not, he took full responsibility for what happened on the field.
That’s what good coaches do.
