The New York Giants should be really optimistic about the 2015 NFL season. Maybe it’s because the Giants didn’t make the playoffs for the third year in a row but it feels like it has been forever since the Giants played football. We can’t wait to see the Giants take the field to redeem themselves after back to back losing seasons. The time has come to reclaim the Giants place among the contenders of the NFL.
In an earlier article, we took a glass half empty approach and I walked you through all the things that could go wrong for the Giants in the 2015 season. Today we are going to look at the things that could go right for the Giants in the upcoming season. Giants fans have reason to be excited for their team to shine in 2015. The Giants very well could be this year’s biggest turnaround.
The Giants had a strong offseason. They signed key role players like Shane Vereen and Kenrick Ellis. They got the offensive line some depth by signing Marshall Newhouse and they got a big time kick returner in Dwayne Harris. They added depth to the linebacker corps with Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas, both players that will improve the special teams units. The Giants drafted a physically dominant offensive tackle in Ereck Flowers and a great strong safety in Landon Collins. They also drafted Owamagbe Odighizuwa who will strengthen the Giants run defense and provide some more pass rushing.
There are plenty of reasons to feel that the Giants are headed for a winning season. Here are 3 things that could go right in 2015.
