NY Giants have the talent, can they put it together?
The New York Giants made a lot of moves this offseason that puts them in a position to make the playoffs this coming season. But if they’re going to get back to playing football in January they will need a lot of things to fall in place when it comes to quarterback Daniel Jones, their offensive line and maybe even their pass rush.
Conor Orr of SI.com believes that the Giants will be one of six teams that missed the playoffs in 2020 to make it this coming season. Here’s what he wrote:
The Giants are well coached and have a rising star defensive coordinator in Patrick Graham who, while he’s there, could potentially have a top-seven or -eight defense this year if his best players stay healthy. Saquon Barkley is back, yes, though our bullishness on the Giants stems mostly from a surge in general optimism around Daniel Jones. While it is difficult to predict a star rise based on his film in particular, some around the league are seeing Jones as a diamond in the rough who will benefit from stability at the coordinator position and a bolstered weapon set. Will Jones be Offensive Player of the Year good? Probably not. Could he be Garoppolo-plus in 2021? Absolutely.
The Giants really do have a strong coaching staff led by head coach Joe Judge. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett now needs to prove that he can get the job done with all of the weapons he has at his disposal.
The other teams that Orr believes will make the playoffs this year after missing out in 2020 are the San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos.
