NY Giants are getting slammed for how they've treated Saquon Barkley

There's certainly two sides to the table here. On one hand, there are countless people who have called out NY Giants running back Saquon Barkley for being away from the team, especially after he's turned down multiple offers from the squad.

At the same time, though, countless folks can't believe Joe Schoen has allowed this dispute to keep going on. Earlier this week, Colin Cowherd ripped the G-Men for prioritizing a Daniel Jones deal over getting things done with Barkley first.

Now, FS1's Joy Taylor has decided to voice her opinion on the matter, taking No. 26's side. Taylor passionately said the Giants are in the wrong here - she even went on to say that he's the main reason this team has been relevant in recent years. Oh my:

Giants RB Saquon Barkley won't rule out sitting out the season due to his contract issues

Just like Cowherd, Taylor didn't hold back in going after Giants. Her co-hosts agreed with her too. The fact of the matter is that Barkley is the best offensive playmaker this team has and he's a big reason why the Giants made the postseason in 2022.

However, to say nobody takes Danny Dimes seriously without Saquon out on the field is a bit of a stretch. While we won't argue how important Barkley is for this offense moving forward, let's not forget that Schoen brought in Darren Waller, Parris Campbell, Jalin Hyatt and others to help this offense get better.

The aerial attack figures to take a major step forward with those guys joining Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, Wan'Dale Robinson and the other returning pass-catchers. Things are moving in the right direction for Jones.

With that said, we also must note how important Barkley is for this team as a whole. More and more people are going to keep backing him and trying to take down the Giants until a new deal is signed. Schoen is standing his ground, though, so who knows how this mess will ultimately end.
