The 2023 regular season is coming to an end and the NY Giants will not be heading to the postseason unlike last year. Certainly a bitter conclusion compared to the previous season, as the Giants went 9-7-1 and won a playoff game for the first time since Super Bowl 46.
It's Week 18 and the Giants are 5-11, well in reach of a Top 5 draft pick in April if this last matchup doesn't go as planned. However, players don't care about the draft or what potential player the team can draft like fans do. They're not going to quit, as it showed in their 26-25 loss to the Rams last week.
The Giants aren't happy with how their season has gone. If they want to go out with a bang and finally beat the Eagles for the first time since 2021, Brian Daboll needs to make these adjustments:
4. Utilize Wan'Dale Robinson
If there's one positive to take from this season, it's that Wan'Dale Robinson will be a solid piece to work with going forward. Coming off of an ACL tear suffered in November of 2022, Robinson rehabbed the entirety of the offseason, leaving many wondering if he'd be able to get up to game speed in time for the season.
Fast forward 17 weeks and Robinson has proved to be a dynamic weapon for the future. He may not be the biggest or the fastest, but when the ball's in his hands, good things come from it. Last week against the Rams, Robinson totaled seven touches for 79 yards and one touchdown.
In their last matchup on Christmas day, Robinson played 45 snaps (71%) and had only three catches for 16 yards. It's clear that Robinson will be a big part of the offensive plan heading into the 2024 season. Scheming plays up specifically for him in Week 18 could mean the difference in beating the Eagles.
