Going into this season, not much was expected of the New York Giants. The words that were thrown around were words like, “full rebuild” and “this is only a 5-win team.”
Daniel Jones’s fifth-year option wasn’t picked up. There were question marks all over the offense. The defense was in flux.
But as soon as the season started, nothing mattered. Giants football was back and the fanbase was excited and flocking to MetLife Stadium again.
Head Coach Brian Daboll brought a different culture and outlook to this team that hadn’t been seen since the Coughlin years. He has brought grit and accountability to this team, and that has made this team believe in themselves and has us believing in them as well.
This team was the little engine that could, and occasionally, they played like world beaters, but the fact remains this need is short in the talent department, and that much was shown in the Eagles game.
As fans, we have a lot to look forward with this team. This will be Joe Schoen’s second draft, there will be more cap space for him to tinker with, and some tough decisions need to be made as well.
With Joe Schoen’s vision and Brian Daboll at the helm, this team will compete for this division. The team could have sustained success, maybe even compete for championships year in and year out.
