What Has Contributed To The New York Football Giants 6-2 Start?
The New York Football Giants are 6-2 heading into their bye week. If you had told me they would have six wins at the midway point of the season I would've told you that your crazy. It appears that both new general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll were the right choices. Quarterback Daniel Jones has played great and hasn't really turned the football over. Saquon Barkley is playing like the best running back in the league. This is all happening without many legitimate weapons for Daniel Jones to throw the ball to. The Giants didn't make any moves at the trade deadline and I am okay with it as I further discuss in my quick take from The Times Union:
The Giants didn’t make a trade at the deadline, and I understand why not. They are just not good enough this season to make a big move and give up a lot. The Giants are well coached and play hard but are nowhere near the roster they need to make a deep run this season. There is an outside chance the go after Odell Beckham Jr, if he’s healthy in February. Until then, they stay the course after their bye week.
MJ and I had a conversation about the Giants and the trade deadline Wednesday morning right here on Big Board Sports. We also had on Jordan Raanan on Monday morning to talk about the Giants 6-2 start and also the NFL trade deadline. Below are both of these conversations.
The Giants have an easy schedule remaining this season and certainly to me and many other people, look like a legit playoff team in the NFC.
