With the NY Giants set to kick off their preseason on Thursday, it is finally time to see this new, and hopefully improved team in action.
Obviously the preseason is more about seeing what the backups and rookies have than anything else. However, the Giants have a ton of “backups” and rookies full of potential to make an impact on the team. At the same time, it’s time for some of the veterans and guys like Daniel Jones to deliver as well.
The NY Giants play three games this preseason against the Patriots, Bengals and Jets – all winnable games. With that said, here are seven bold predictions for the upcoming showdowns this month.
7. NY Giants go undefeated in preseason
This is probably the boldest take on our list. However, we believe it is very possible. Obviously a preseason record is not indicative of how well the NY Giants will perform in the regular season, but it would be a very nice way to start the year.
The new front office of the Giants did a tremendous job at adding depth to important positions on the team -especially at QB, WR, the OL, and LB. If the depth added at these positions live up to their expectations, we could see the team have tremendous success in the preseason.
We could see some of the depth on the NY Giants, especially the rookies, emerge as highly productive players who could potentially win games for the Giants in the regular season.
If the players the NY Giants added to the roster step up in the ways we think they can, the Giants should win all three games and Brian Daboll will of course have added trust in those guys who stepped up. It should be an exciting three games leading up to Week 1 vs. the Titans.
