It’s been a busy offseason for general manager Joe Schoen, with the NY Giants making some improvements on both sides of the ball. Schoen is only getting started, as the 2023 NFL Draft will be here before you know it and the Giants will only improve the roster after the seven rounds come and go.

However, despite Schoen working tirelessly, not a lot of people think the Giants have what it takes to bring home a divisional title in 2023. The latest NFC East odds have been dropped, and NY is behind both the Eagles and Cowboys here. Really?

Can the Giants end up winning the NFC East next season?

The Eagles are understandably at the top of the list after winning the NFC last campaign and nearly taking down the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Hey, Philly would have brought home the Lombardi Trophy for the second time in its history had they not choked in the second half, but that’s a conversation for another day.

What has sucked for the Eagles this offseason is they’ve seen an incredible amount of talent leave in free agency. That’s good news for the Giants, though, as they haven’t had the same problem. Despite some people focusing on Nick Gates and Jon Feliciano leaving East Rutherford, Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and more will be back.

Not only that, but Schoen helped out the offense in signing Parris Campbell to a new deal, while star linebacker Bobby Okereke will don a Big Blue jersey after inking his four-year, $40 million contract with the team. With Okereke suting up for Wink Martindale’s defense, people all over New York and New Jersey are fired up.

Despite Schoen making a bit of a splash in free agency, it’s clearly not enough for people to buy in on the Giants to make noise in the NFC East. Big Blue is no stranger to proving people wrong though, as we saw the team go 9-7-1 during the regular season and then stun the Vikings in the Wild Card Round this past year.

An NFC East title would turn out to be a shocker next winter, but folks should know better than to doubt what Brian Daboll and Co. can potentially get done.
