Entering Week 12, the NY Giants hold a record of 7-3, looking to capitalize on the success they’ve had this season. Despite the impressive record, they have still been held back by certain players who have been rather disappointing.

While for the most part the majority of players on the Giants have had a great season, certain members of the team have stunk it up. No one thought this would be the case.

There is still a chance to turn things around, but these players have not played their part in the team’s success. With that being said, here are four NY Giants players who have disappointed the most through 10 games.

4. CB Darnay Holmes

Following a very solid season last year, it seemed as if Darnay Holmes was ready to take the next step and potentially play the role as the second corner behind Adoree’ Jackson. However, heading into Thursday’s game with Dallas, this has been the opposite of the case.

Holmes wasn’t anything spectacular in 2021, however, he really stepped up towards the second half of the season when the team needed someone to. It is a good thing that Joe Schoen made the genius move of signing Fabian Moreau, or else this secondary would look a lot worse.

Considering the injury that Aaron Robinson sustained, the Giants have needed Holmes to play a critical role as the third/fourth corner on the defense, while he has been rather solid, the Giants really needed more out of Holmes earlier in the season.

On the season, Holmes has four games in which he has allowed 45+ yards and five games in which he has allowed a completion percentage of 60% or higher. Holmes may not be a detriment this season, but we think there are no doubts that he has definitely been disappointing. With Adoree’ Jackson spraining his MCL, Holmes will really be needed to step his gameu p.
