3. OL Mark Glowinski

After a near-disastrous 2022 season, fans were hoping for a bit of a resurgence from 31-year-old hoss Mark Glowinski. However, it seems like a real possibility that Glowinski could be benched shortly if he doesn't improve his level of play. While he made some nice plays as a run-blocker early on, his abilities as a pass protector continue to hurt the Giants deeply.

According to Jordan Raanan, Glowinski ranked 56th of 58 qualifying guards in pass-block win rate for Week 1. This is absolutely unacceptable and cannot be allowed to continue. Whether Glowinski is benched for Josh Ezeudu, or Joe Schoen signs a veteran like Justin Pugh, Glowinski cannot be allowed to play so poorly with how high the stakes are for this season.

Glowinski looked lost all game long and it was just embarrassing to watch. It's one thing to watch him get cooked by Micah Parsons, but the Cowboys were throwing guys like Osa Odighizuwa at Glowinski and he just couldn't stop them. This game defined Glowinski's career with the Giants thus far and showed that the team has to consider other options moving forward.

The 2023 season is going to be very vital for the Giants moving forward. If Glowinski cannot improve his play, then there is a real chance that he will be gone before the end of the year. There was hope that he could be a solid piece for New York when he was signed, but so far he has been anything but.
