In a season where the New York Giants were expected to build off their playoff appearance from a year ago, they did the opposite, finishing 6-11. The 2023 campaign marked the sixth time in the last seven seasons that Big Blue had 10 losses or more in a season - brutal.

Now with the Giants in offseason mode, they're not only looking to improve a team that had such high expectations in 2023, but taking a look at what really went wrong that put the Giants in a position to pick No. 6 overall in this year's NFL Draft. You can certainly label injuries and bad coaching as some of the factors of the Giants downfalls, but there were also some players on this team that the Giants hoped could play at a high level, but they didn't. Straight up, these guys have proven to be busts:

5. Guard Mark Glowinski

After signing guard Mark Glowinski to a three-year deal back in 2022, the former Seattle Seahawk and Indianapolis Colt has failed to play at a high level that the Giants would have hoped he would've reached. And after the season he had in 2023, the Glowinski contract is looking worse by the day.

Back in Week 1 when the Giants got dismantled by the Dallas Cowboys 40-0 and allowed seven sacks, Glowinski was a main factor in the Giants offensive line failing to protect quarterback Daniel Jones. Glowinski was given a 1.0 passing block rate by Pro Football Focus and allowed nine pressures, one quarterback hit and three sacks on the night.

He played so poorly that the Giants opted to bench him the following week for Marcus McKethan, as Glowinski could never really bounce back. This offseason, general manager Joe Schoen should look to release him to create more than $5 million in cap space.
