The New York Giants were one of the most improved teams in the NFL last season.
Joe Judge’s days in charge of the team gave them an offense that was tough to watch, so having an offensive-minded genius like Brian Daboll calling the shots most definitely helped them turn the corner.
Daniel Jones had his best season yet, and — outside of that embarrassing performance in their playoff loss — proved that he might as well be their franchise guy going forward.
Saquon Barkley turned back the clock and proved that he could stay healthy and be a steady offensive contributor, earning another chance ahead of a contract year.
However, the front office will need to address some issues in the offense if they want to go back to Super Bowl contention, especially when it comes to their wide receivers.
According to PFF insider Arjun Menon, the Giants currently have the slowest receiving corps in the league, at least in terms of the 40-yard dash.

Truth be told, New York’s passing game left some to be desired, with Kenny Golladay once again underperforming vastly.
All things considered, the offense could’ve been more explosive, but they struggled to create separation more often than not, with Darius Slayton as their only bright spot more often than not.
Of course, analytics is just a tool, and it won’t tell the full picture unless they’re put into context.
But the Giants could definitely use an improvement at the WR position, and the numbers speak for themselves.NEXT: Stephen A. Smith Makes His Thoughts On Saquon Barkley's Contract Clear
