Tigers don't change their stripes. Just like selfish people don't often change. It happens but not often. So, when former New York Giant, Odell Beckham Jr. was kicked off a plane on Sunday morning for nothing more or less than complete selfish behavior, red flags should have been flying for Big Blue general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll.
The NFL season starts this week. The never-ending water-cooler talk about the Giants, the Bills, even the Jets, begins in full swing, as the final minutes of true summer dissolve Labor Day weekend. School is back. Summer hours are over. So, who are the 10 New York Giants you should know about to keep up with the conversations this fall?
Contrary to the fears of many New York Giants fans, the entire 2022 Big Blue roster is not terrible. There are talented football players that have been put in compromising positions, early in their careers by either bad coaching or awful teammates signed by the previous front office and coaching regime. Some of the veteran Giants players are taking advantage of their new opportunities and are personally making the most of them.
There is little question that the New York Giants appear to be going in a better direction than they were a year ago. The subtraction of former general manager Dave Gettleman was enough to propel Big Blue up in my rankings. New GM Joe Schoen and his confident first-year head coach Brian Daboll are attempting to create Buffalo south in East Rutherford, NJ. However, Ben Linsey and Pro Football Focus (@PFF) ranked all 32 NFL teams on ESPN+. Will the Giants be better in 2022? If they are, it may not be because of the players.
As New York Giants owner John Mara and new general manager Joe Schoen tried to defend their hiring process against allegations made by former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, new Giants head coach Brian Daboll continued to build his coaching staff. In the process, Daboll made Big Blue history.
