Last year the Giants had the worst record in the NFL with Cleveland and only won three games. They cleaned house getting rid of the GM,head coach and coordinators on both sides of the ball pretty much a clean sweep. The thing is this team has been bad for a while with only one playoff appearance in the past six years. Besides an outlier year where they went 11-5 in 2016 the rest of the time they were not good going 7-9, 7-9, 6-10, 6-10 and 3-13. In my opinion the GM should've drafted a QB while he had a good draft spot because Eli Manning is not that good and was never elite depending on a great defense when the team won their titles. To make matters worse the Giants have a brutal schedule playing the AFC South/NFC South in addition the always tough NFC East with things starting off against Jacksonville who have the best defense in the NFL a great test for RB Barkley. Then they face New Orleans,Dallas,Carolina,Philly,Atlanta,San Francisco,Houston,etc. Bovada/Vegas have the Giants winning 6 games unfortunately i think the Giants along with their GM think Barkley will be all they need and the offense very well may be good but there are other issues also. The coaching staff may help improve things but sooner or later a new QB needs to be drafted.
