The New York Giants are flat-out awful. Nobody can deny that. The Giants, coming off an embarrassing destruction at the hands of their bitter rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, are now 2-8 and in possession of the league's worst point differential.
No team in football is currently worse than Big Blue, including the 1-8 Carolina Panthers. When you are losing and losing in an ugly, uncompetitive style, media members will take shots at your team. For the last month, the shots have been pouring in, and they have been loud and heavy.
Stephen A. Smith's bashing of the New York Giants will make your head hurt
Stephen A. Smith has been bashing the Giants all season long, calling them, "Saquon Barkley and a bag of chips." That is bad enough, but on Monday he decided to lay in on the franchise, Brian Daboll, the state of New Jersey and the city East Rutherford.
"The Giants are so damn awful. If I am Brian Daboll I might be like, this is going to ruin my reputation, staying here, it's bad enough I am at the swamp in East Rutherford, New Jersey, but now people ain't even blaming the swamp for the stench, they blaming me, I might need to get the hell up out of there. "- Stephen A. Smith
By calling the Giants awful, Smith is calling out the head coach and leader of Big Blue's squad but is also calling out Joe Schoen for his roster construction. At the same time, the First Take co-host is also defending the HC and implying that Daboll is absolved from the Giants mess. Saying Daboll is too good for the Giants when he is one of the main culprits for their current state is quite something.
We know Stephen A. loves to waffle. Daboll and Schoen aren't going anywhere. Daboll was the Coach of the Year last season and has had to coach a roster with many holes. The Giants have also been one of the most injured teams in football, and by the end of the season, will have seen Tommy DeVito, an undrafted rookie, play the most snaps at quarterback.
If Daboll were to stunningly be let go, he sure as heck isn't going back to Buffalo, unless it's as head coach. Coach Dabes has proven he can win at this level, but people are just upset with the way the 2023 campaign has gone.
Daboll and Schoen aren't leaving, and the Giants are likely to be in a position to draft Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, Michael Penix Jr., or Marvin Harrison Jr. The future is still extremely bright for Big Blue whether Smith wants to believe it or not.
