We have to admit, things have been looking up for the New York Giants. Victor Cruz, Jon Beason and Geoff Schwartz should be good to come back from their injuries. The Giants had a strong draft in which they improved on the offensive line as well as getting tougher on defense. The additions of Kenrick Ellis and Shane Vereen are especially exciting moves. Lately we have had a lot of positive things to say about our beloved Giants.
That being said success in 2015 is not a given. In the NFL there are no easy games and winning is a hard thing to do. In a grind it out season in a physical sport like football, anything can happen. The Giants know too well the potential perils of an NFL season. The Giants have had back to back losing seasons. They have suffered devastating injuries to key players, lost some heartbreakers against division rivals and had some real struggles on both sides of the football.
We would love to sit here and tell you wonderful things about the Giants. We’d love to assure you that the team will prevail no matter what. The problem is that we don’t know that. While there are plenty of things to be happy and excited about, there is just as much to be worried about. And when in back to back seasons you’ve had a losing streaks of six games and seven games, you know just how miserable a football season can turn. Here are five things that could go wrong for the Giants in 2015.
