Every offseason, we see teams dubbed winners or losers from their different moves. This has caused the question to be asked: Did the NY Giants win, or lose the offseason?
We believe that it is very clear that the NY Giants were not only winners of the offseason, but had one of the better ones in the entire NFL.
Last season, the Giants were one of the worst teams in the NFL, finishing with a record of 4-13. However, after a multitude of coaching staff changes, draft picks, and free agent signings, it seems as if big changes could be coming for the G-Men. In this piece, we take a look at four ways NY won the offseason.
4. New and improved regime
The NY Giants had arguably one of the worst front office/coaching staffs in the entire NFL last season. With the combination of Joe Judge and Dave Gettleman making it nearly impossible to watch the team.
However, with the firing of Judge and the “retirement” of Gettleman, it was time for the NY Giants to find replacements. With this in mind, they brought in former Buffalo Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen, who in turn hired former Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
Since joining the Giants, Schoen has made a multitude of signings, plus inked draft picks who have improved the team immensely. When you combine this with the potential improvement that both Daboll and new offensive coordinator Mike Kafka could bring, things could get very exciting for the Giants.
NY Giants fans have been without a competent head coach since the days of Tom Coughlin. If Daboll can step up and take the reigns as the next head coach of the future, the NY Giants may see success very soon.
If the two top members of this new regime can perform at the level we all think they can, things could be getting much better very soon for the Giants.
