What automatically bumps the New York Giants up from a lowly season to a mediocre one is simple: the O-line was epically awful a year ago. Old-school general manager Dave Gettleman came in and realized a no-nonsense approach was needed in fixing it. It did it (to the best of his ability).

The Saquon Barkley hype has gone past the point of nuts. While he won’t completely disappoint, the hype is just impossible to match. What’ll eventually let this team down is its defense, as Olivier Vernon isn’t enough to get the conventional pass rush rolling on his own.

If you went into the future and came back and told me the New York Giants either went to the playoffs, won four games, or went .500 I would’ve believed anything you said. The range of ceiling to floor on this team is perhaps the widest in the entire league. Ultimately they have ridiculous amounts of talent on both sides of the ball and that will keep them competitive through most of the year. I know the Washington Redskins pick will sound crazy to people, but I believe in the talent and I have a soft spot for Alex Smith and this will be uber competitive as well.
