Giants need more than Saquon Barkley
Many people seem to believe that the New York Giants’ 2021 season will come down to whether or not running back Saquon Barkley stays healthy and plays well.
Now you can include former Giants’ punter Steve Weatherford as someone who believes Big Blue’s season will hinge on Barkley.
“I think it’s all going to hinge on Saquon Barkley. Daniel Jones is obviously going to have to continue to evolve and get better but even with Daniel Jones at his best, without Saquon Barkley, I don’t think we’ve got a shot,” Weatherford told Giants Wire. “He’s our best player. I think he’s probably one of the best players to come around — I think he’s better than Odell [Beckham] in regard to his ability to impact the game. I think he’s one of the best players they’ve drafted probably since Eli [Manning].”
I can’t agree with Weatherford and anyone else who thinks that the Giants’ success this coming season will depend on Barkley. They could have running back Devontae Booker start all season and be successful as long as quarterback Daniel Jones gets the job done.
