New York Giants Look to Grow in Offseason

During the 2016 NFL season, the New York Giants looked like one of the most complete teams in the league. They showed that they had the ability to stop most of the top offenses in the league while also scoring points at will. This success ended up allowing the Giants to finish with 11 wins and 5 losses, which helped them to qualify for the Wild Card round of the NFC playoffs. The team ultimately lost to the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the playoffs, but now has many reasons to look forward to a successful season in 2017 (

When comparing all teams in the league against one another, many experts end up finding the that Giants are one of the deepest teams in the league and have a chance to win their division, conference, and even advance to the Super Bowl. The Giants finished second in the division last year to the Dallas Cowboys, but are considered to be a favorite to take the title this season. One of the main reasons for that is that the Cowboys were led by a pair of rookies, which could suffer a second season setback. Ezekiel Elliot has already been suspended for 6 games, which many expect will be reduced upon appeal.

One of the main reasons for the anticipated success for the Giants will be the offense. Eli Manning, who has already led the team to two different Super Bowl wins, will once again lead the Giants. He now may have the best wide receiver group of his career. Odell Beckham Junior, who is widely regarded as the most athletic receiver in the league, leads this group. While Beckham is already a strong leader of the group, the Giants signed Brandon Marshall in the offseason. Marshall is one of the most consistent receivers in NFL history and could have a chance to win his first career Super Bowl with the Giants. He previously spent the last two seasons with the Jets.

The main focus of the Giants this training camp will be to continue to recover from the playoff loss. The Giants lost to the Packers by three touchdowns and looked like they could not stop Aaron Rodgers. This August, the team will continue to look for ways to improve in their pass rush and secondary, which was also a focal point of the free agency and draft process.
