Realistic expectations for the Giants in 2022
By Reese Nasser
The NY Giants will finish with a losing record for the fifth consecutive season, with a high-priced roster, but there’s a chance 2022 could go much differently
The NY Giants’ 2021 season has quickly become forgettable.
New York currently sits at 4-10 and at the bottom of the NFC East. A tough four-game stretch could see this team realistically finish with a record of 4-13.
But all hope is not lost.
With both their own pick and the Chicago Bears first-round pick in next spring’s NFL Draft, the Giants may potentially have two top-10 selections. If used correctly, these could be franchise-altering selections. And with the current state of this team, a change in direction is exactly what they need. But what could the 2022 season look like for this team? Let’s take a look.
Here’s a realistic set of expectations for the NY Giants in 2022:
A chance of another mediocre season
The NY Giants are currently in the middle of something.
They are somewhere in between a full-blown rebuild and a team that wants to contend. But this state of flux only hurts the team. Being in no man’s land won’t lead to success down the line and they must choose between tearing it all down or going all in.
But until they make that choice, they will be stuck in the land of mediocrity. And this is where they will be in 2022.
Many of the NY Giants’ key players will be returning unless some sort of drastic decision is made.
But the team that they have put out onto the field looks like nothing more than average. Their four winds up to this point tell the whole story. Outside of a blockbuster trade, there is nothing that will lead to this unit being different next season. A sub-eight win season could be on the horizon again for this team.
