The New York Giants haven’t enjoyed much success over the last five NFL seasons.
They’ve had a combined record of 22-59 and had four head coaches over that span, including Steve Spagnuolo in the interim role.
Their previous head coach, Joe Judge, lasted for two seasons and ended with a 10-23 record.
That said, the Giants are hoping that head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen will help turn things around.
The team’s devoted fans are hoping that the two men will bring some of their success from the Buffalo Bills to the Giants.
Schoen has started to clean up the blunders made by his predecessor, Dave Gettleman.
Meanwhile, Daboll is ushering in a new vibe into the team’s locker room.
Players are more receptive to him and he communicates in a firm but understandable way.
Daboll will have to do a lot of mentoring and communicating for the upcoming season because the talent level isn’t at par with what they had in Buffalo.
Looking at the state of the Giants roster: Only 4 Pro Bowl selections combined from the 90 players. Graham Gano, Saquon Barkley, Leonard Williams and Kenny Golladay with one apiece.
Tom Brady is a 15X selection.

ESPN NFL Nation reporter Jordan Raanan tweeted, “Looking at the state of the Giants roster: Only 4 Pro Bowl selections combined from the 90 players. Graham Gano, Saquon Barkley, Leonard Williams, and Kenny Golladay with one apiece. Tom Brady is a 15X selection.”
Worst yet, Barkley and Golladay might not even return to their Pro Bowl form.
Can The Giants Compete?
As an offensive-minded head coach, Daboll will be able to guide quarterback Daniel Jones better.
He knows what he wants and players how it must be done.
Overhauling the Giants will be a tall order, but turning things around will be a fantastic feather in Daboll’s cap.
His players might not have individual accolades but playing together will help them string some victories.
But realistically, having a way more respectable finish than their 4-13 mark last season puts them in the right direction.
