1. All eyes will be on quarterback Daniel Jones

It feels like it happened a while ago, but earlier this offseason the Giants rewarded Danny Dimes for his strong 2022 campaign with a $160 million deal. The NY haters have been out in full force from the moment the new deal was announced, claiming that Jones is not only overrated, but that he's also not worth that kind of money.

While Jones will be able to quiet down the people rooting against him once the regular season arrives, he can also shut them up starting with OTAs. If Jones isn't at his best in the coming days, you already know that Dallas, Philly and Washington fans are going to be ripping him to shreds all over social media.

However, if he throws countless frozen ropes to Waller, Hyatt, Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and the other speedsters on the team, then it will definitely give the NY faithful even more reason to be excited for Week 1 to get here. As good as Jones was in '22, there was still room for improvement.

If he can take another step forward in '23 working with Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, then another head-turning campaign could be on the way for the fifth-year quarterback. We really hope he can put on a show at OTAs.
