The New York Giants are a quizzical team in the NFC East. The team is consistent as far as personnel goes with President John Mara, head coach Tom Coughlin and quarterback Eli Manning leading the way but the team has fluctuated from year-to-year as far as the standings go. Last year wasn’t a good one for the Giants. Eli Manning had his worst season as a pro, throwing a career-high in interceptions and a career-low in touchdowns as a full-season starter. It’s unclear how much a turnaround Manning can have (although he shouldn’t be nearly as bad as he was in 2013). Big Blue did bring in new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and it will be interesting to see what scheme he’s able to cook up for the Giants considering that he’s never held the offensive coordinator position before. The Giants brought in Rashad Jennings at running back but the receiver position is a bit worrying. Aside from Victor Cruz, the Giants are hoping that Rueben Randle and rookie Odell Beckham Jr. can step up big. The Giants lost Hakeem Nicks (who was ineffective last year) and Mario Manningham was put on injured reserve.

As for the defense, the unit was a pleasant surprise last year but it may be poised for a bit of a dip this season. The team lost Justin Tuck and Jon Beason is (perhaps unsurprisingly) injured after maintaining his health last year. The Giants also released Will Hill, who was very decent when he played as Big Blue hopes that Stevie Brown will be the same player he was before he tore his ACL. As insurance, the Giants brought in Walter Thurmond and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie but how effective Thurmond will be outside of Seattle’s rarefied defense remains an issue. Simply put, there’s not much reason to think the Giants will be world-beaters this year, even if they do improve over last season.

The Giants currently enjoy 42-1 odds of winning the Super Bowl.
