With the NY Giants sitting at 1-4 on the season, plenty of fans are ready to throw in the towel on the campaign. We've seen the 'tank for Caleb Williams' talk in full force after the G-Men suffered their 31-16 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5.
We understand the morale around the fanbase is low, but now is not the time to start thinking in wild fashion. Leave it to Boomer Esiason to ignore that plea and get the party started. While talking on his radio show, the former long-time signal-caller painted a picture for 2024 that not only includes Williams as the No. 1 pick for Big Blue, but he also has Bill Belichick coming to town. What in the world?
There's no way the Giants will replace Brian Daboll with Bill Belichick next season
"What happens if the Giants end up with the No. 1 overall pick, and Bill Belichick decides it’s time to leave New England? ... You mean Bill Belichick and Caleb Williams in New York? You’re telling me the Giants fans wouldn’t lose their mind?"- Boomer Esiason
A 71-year old Belichick to replace the reigning NFL Coach of the Year in Brian Daboll? It's never going to happen, Boomer. Not only that, but the Giants believe in Daniel Jones, so much so that they gave him a $160 million extension this offseason.
Yes, the Giants have lost four of five games to start the season, but the losses were to the Dolphins, 49ers, Cowboys and Seahawks. It's not like they've been losing to scrubs. Every single loss has come against a 2022 postseason squad.
After this weekend's showdown with the Bills, the Giants schedule is going to be much easier and Big Blue should be close to full health. A healthy Andrew Thomas and Saquon Barkley will make a huge difference for this offense and what Daboll/Mike Kafka are trying to get done.
Belichick is going through a nightmare himself in New England, and while he has plenty of love for the Giants, we can't even think about life without Daboll right now. It's way too early to give up on the second-year HC after one rough start to a season. Williams is a true talent, but fans still believe the Giants can start producing some Ws once the schedule dies down a bit. Williams and Belichick sounds nice in a dream, but that's all this is - a dream.
