The New York Giants have not made the playoffs once since winning Super Bowl XLVI three seasons ago. Last year ended with a disappointing 6-10 record after injuries and poor performances dominated the season. With the start of a new year brings optimism and the hopes that the talent on the Giants’ roster translates to success in 2015.
Quarterback Eli Manning who was very inconsistent last season will have a solid arsenal of receivers at his disposal including rookie standout Odell Beckham Jr. who in just 12 games had the kind of numbers most receivers dream of for a whole season. He will be joined by a healthy Victor Cruz and the talented but somewhat up and down Reuben Randle. As opposed to last season, Manning will have a running back he can throw the ball to in ex-New England Patriot Shane Vereen who caught 52 passes in 2014 for the Patriots. The Giants offensive line should be much improved as they get back last year’s big free agent Geoff Schwartz from injury and drafted Ereck Flowers who should man the blind side.
Defensively, New York traded up in the second round of the 2015 draft to select Landon Collins, an Alabama safety. That’s good news as the Giants lost three safeties over this offseason. Their corners are solid with Prince Amukamara and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie both healthy and ready for the season. New defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will bring an aggressive approach in 2015 that the players will love and hopefully light a fire under this talented group of defenders.
Fans and New York Giants’ ticket holders are banking on a bounce back year for their team. Their strength of schedule will certainly help as aside from fellow NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys, the Giants play just two teams who made the playoffs in 2014. With a healthy roster, a very capable signal caller and a slew of talent, you will want to scoop up New York Giants tickets and come out to see these guys hit the field this season.
