As the New York Giants head toward another season without a sniff of the NFL playoffs, major changes appear to be on the way. What is in store for Big Blue’s defensive unit next year?
As the New York Football Giants continue to play out the string of the 2014 NFL season, a third straight campaign that will end without a playoff berth, many fans are left wondering where it went wrong. By connecting the dots, it becomes easy to see that Big Blue’s recent drafts are to blame.
The game of roster musical chairs continued for the New York Giants on Wednesday, as the team placed cornerback Prince Amukamara on injured reserve. To take Amukamara’s place on the roster, the G-men were awarded Chykie Brown on waivers.
A disappointing 2013 season came to a premature end for New York Giants halfback David Wilson yesterday. The second year player from Virginia Tech was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the G-men, who activated running back Andre Brown from the injured list as well. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden sat out practice with a pulled hamstring and looks unlikely to play on Sunday.
The New York Giants have gotten off to their worst since 1976, yet at 2-6, the team does still have its sights set on an NFC East title. But in order to have a second half turnaround, some players will have to raise their performance, and others will have to maintain their first half pace.
