Last year in the NFL playoffs, the New York Giants were barely able to squeeze in. They had to go through Atlanta, the 15-1 Green Bay Packers in Green Bay, and then the mighty, hard nose, defensive team in the San Francisco 49ers. And not shortly after, they beat the Patriots to win Eli Manning’s second Super Bowl win. So how will they be this year?
With adding the pros and cons, they still look like they have a chance of being champs again. They’ve added great and young talent with running back David Wilson and wide receiver Rueben Randle. If you look at Wilson, he’s a strong and tough back and reminds me of Ray Rice, not too big but powerful. Then, you look at Randle. This, in my opinion, was a huge steal in the draft. To be able to get such a great receiver at the end of the second round is huge. Since the Giants lost Mario Manningham, they really could use that third receiver when Cruz or Nicks aren’t open. Randle is a tall receiver with some of the best hands I’ve seen. At LSU, his true skills weren’t shown off because of the two quarterback system played there, but when he had his chance to shine he did.
Other than those two draft picks, the Giants weren’t really active in free agency, but if it’s not broken, then why fix it? The Giants were able to get hot last year and instead of going San Diego Chargers on the NFL they could actually do very well this season. My prediction is that they New York Giants will win the NFC East and will have a record of 11-5.
