What now? That's what countless NY Giants fans must be thinking after the terrible loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night. Now, the G-Men are 1-3 on the year and the morale among the fanbase is down in the gutter. In all three phases of the game, New York has been disappointing.
This could very well lead to some interesting decisions being made moving forward. At least, we hope it will, as the Giants' start to the season has shown that what they're trying to do isn't working and change is needed. With that said, here's a look at four players who must be benched as soon as possible:
4. OL Marcus McKethan
Following what was a strong debut against the Cardinals in Week 2, fans were ecstatic about what former fifth-round pick Marcus McKethan could do for the Giants. However, just two weeks later, it seems like McKethan could find his way right back to the bench thanks to his poor play as the Giants starting right guard.
Through the three games McKethan has started, he has allowed 10 pressures and two sacks, earning a PFF pass-blocking grade of 28.2. While beforehand, the Giants didn't have much guard depth to play over him, as Shane Lemieux and Mark Glowinski are both arguably worse, a recent move could change this.
After months of speculation, the Giants finally went out and signed former first-round pick Justin Pugh. While it's initially a practice squad deal, there's a real chance that Pugh works his way onto the actual roster sooner than later and eventually starts given how bad the offensive line has been.
Whether it's for Pugh, or someone else, the Giants very well could stop giving McKethan chances to play poorly. He hasn't disappointed considering that he's a fifth-round pick, but there's no doubt that the Giants need better at right guard.
