Leading up to the 2022 season, remember when no one gave the NY Giants a chance of recording a respectable campaign? A lot of folks figured either 4-5 wins would be on the way. New York proved those haters wrong. Now, the Giants will be ready to enter the 2023 season with some folks overlooking them too.

This week, Pro Football Focus came out with its early power rankings for the 2023 campaign. They have the Giants checking in at No. 14, behind teams like the Vikings, Lions, Jaguars, Buccaneers and more. Seriously, No. 14 for the G-Men? We don't like seeing this one bit.

""The Giants adding tight end Darren Waller is a risky move — he’s been injury prone but could have a significant impact. While injuries have limited Waller over the past two seasons, he is one of the top tight ends in football when he is at his best. Between 2019 and 2020, George Kittle and Travis Kelce were the only tight ends to best Waller's 91.2 PFF receiving grade. The Giants' losses in free agency were fairly minimal.""

PFF does make the good point that the Giants didn't lose too much in free agency, while also noting that the injury worries on Darren Waller don't take away from the fact taht he's one of the best tight ends in the game when healthy.

The addition of Bobby Okereke to the linebackers room, plus Parris Campbell for the WRs group has fans excited. Remember, the Giants went 9-7-1 last season and stunned the Vikings, a team ranked ahead of the NY by PFF, in the Wild Card Round.

The Giants aren't strangers to outperforming expectations - something tells us they'll be much higher in the power rankings once the season gets underway. Regardless, time and time again people disrespect the Giants. Danny Dimes and Co. will be ready to remind PFF how good this team can be under Brian Daboll.
