The New York Football Giants will miss the NFL playoffs for a third consecutive season, and that fact alone makes the probability of changes very high as the calendar turns to 2015. The Giants spent over $114 million this off season, in a buying spree that was not worth the effort. So what is in store for the New York Giants this off season?
Many credited linebacker Jon Beason with solidifying the New York Giants in 2013. The team allowed Beason to enter free agency, but eventually re-sgned him to a three-year, $17 million contract, that raised some eyebrows. The team announced on Monday that Beason would miss the remainder of the 2014 after aggravating a lingering foot injury.
The New York Football Giants (3-4) entered their bye week coming off of two straight losses to division opponents and being outscored 58-21 in the process. Because of the hot starts by both the Dallas Cowboys (6-1) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-1), the G-men have very slim hope to be able to win the division.
Faithful fans of the New York Giants thought the team was coming of age through an early fall three game winning streak. But as the daylight grows shorter with each passing week, are we seeing the sun set on the Giants playoff chances?
The New York Football Giants (3-2) travel down to the City of Brotherly Love to battle the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) in a Sunday Night Football match-up. The Giants started out winless after two weeks, but have since won three games in a row. The Eagles have walked the tightrope more than once this season, yet are still atop the NFC East with a 4-1 record.
Whatever elixir the New York Giants drank between weeks two and three of the NFL regular season should be saved for future use. Not only did the team even its record at 2-2 over the past two weeks; they also have become healthier than we have seen in several seasons. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons come into MetLife Stadium sporting the same 2-2 record but with a fistful of question marks, especially across the offensive line.
The New York Football Giants are looking for their first September win in over two years, as Big Blue hosts the Houston Texans on Sunday. New York lost two key contributors, cornerback Walter Thurmond and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, for the season in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals last weekend.
The New York Giants dealt with a brittle offensive line in 2013, and the team appears to have the same problem occurring this season, even before a single regular season game is played. In addition, first round draft pick Odell Beckham, Jr. has not seen the field in a meaningful way, so an expected big part of their offense will be unavailable as they face the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
The Detroit Lions and the New York Giants are polar opposites when comparing NFL franchises.
New York Giants middle linebacker Jon Beason hopes to play in the regular-season opener despite missing all of training camp with a right foot injury.
