Giants, Redskins hire young offensive coordinators

If the Redskins and Giants want to compete for a NFC East title, one thing they both must do is fix rather dysfunctional offenses. Each team believes it took a step forward in doing that Tuesday with the hiring of new offensive coordinators.
The Giants have chosen Ben McAdoo to replace retired offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. McAdoo, 36, was the Packers' quarterbacks coach for the past two seasons. Before that, he had been the team's tight ends coach since 2006.
The Redskins went with 27-year-old Sean McVay as their new OC, replacing the fired Kyle Shanahan. McVay was Washington's tight ends coach for the past three seasons. Despite his young age, McVay has drawn heavy praise from some players he coached for his knowledge of the game.

Fantasy Analysis:

I'm not going to act as if I know what these hires mean for either offense. Truly, very few coaching hires immediately tell you much about how it will affect a team. I will say that McVay won't be calling the plays for the Redskins; that duty belongs to new head coach Jay Gruden right now. I consider the Giants' decision the riskier one as McAdoo will be tasked with calling the plays, something he has never done at any level. But it can't hurt that he has spent multiple years learning from Mike McCarthy and got a recommendation from Aaron Rodgers.
