It’s been a tricky decade for the New York Giants, who’re third all-time in wins. They’ve cycled by way of basic managers and head coaches with uncharacteristic frequency and the outcomes converse for themselves.
But the arrival of basic supervisor Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll have bred optimism. Many anticipate the Giants lastly take a step ahead in 2022 and on the very least, present competency.
Even Vegas sportsbooks anticipate higher issues for Big Blue. Most have given them an over/underneath of seven.5 wins, which might be the crew’s most since 2016 and the second-most since 2013.
But not everyone seems to be a believer. Nate Davis of USA TODAY (subscriber solely) not solely predicts another dropping season for the Giants, however he believes will probably be on par with the earlier 5 seasons. And within the course of, Davis additionally believes the Giants might fall behind the New York Jets.
New York Giants (5-12): They’ve received 22 video games since 2017, tied with the crosstown Jets for the league’s fewest over that stretch, and doubtless have much more issues heading into this season. If first-year coach Brian Daboll can’t unlock the abilities of QB Daniel Jones, who’s now in a stroll yr after his fifth-year possibility was declined, good wager the G-Men fall behind their Gotham rivals.
Can we are saying Debbie Downer?
It’s honest to be skeptical of the Giants given their current historical past, however we aren’t fairly certain how Davis concluded that the crew has much more issues heading into 2022. It’s really fairly the alternative — they lastly have a selected course whereas their roster has been cleaned up.
There are areas of apparent concern left over from the earlier regime and the unlucky wage cap state of affairs, however many others have been shored up. So lengthy because the Giants can keep well being — a degree of emphasis for Schoen — they’ll do higher than 5 wins.
