Well that didn’t take long! After less than two full seasons, Ben McAdoo and his inept coaching staff were shown the door after leading the New York Giants to a wretched 3-13 campaign a short season ago. His departure opened the door for Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula to completely transform what has been a stagnant G-Men offense into one fans of the NFL could be talking about for years.
The former called the shots for the Vikings last season, while the latter cut his teeth with the Panthers. These are two of the better offensive minds in the business, so it’s safe to say New York will no doubt trot a more capable offensive attack onto the gridiron in 2018 and beyond. Especially with the moves made on that side of the ball this past offseason.
Eli Manning’s overall body of work has been on the decline each of the last two seasons, but you have to wonder if it had more to do with not being in sync with the now defunct coaching staff than it did his diminishing skills. Upper management not even flinching by bringing him back is telling. His offensive line has been overhauled. Whether thatwill make a difference remains to be seen. However, he gets a healthy Odell Beckham Jr. back in the mix and now has a capable running back to keep defenses honest after selecting Penn State running back Saquon Barkley in the first round of the NFL Draft.
The defense is going to be a major work in progress. It couldn’t stop the run or the pass last season, and only forced a total of 19 turnovers. With so many question marks heading into the NFL betting season, it comes as no surprise to the Giants owners of a 7 game season win total. While the betting markets have flocked to the over forcing linemakers to attach heavy -135 juice to it, I’m not at all sold on 2018 being the year this team completely turns it around.
Making the team’s job that much tougher to surpass that number is a schedule that flat out wreaks on paper! New York kicks things off at home against the Jaguars followed by a trip to Big D top face the Cowboys. From there, it’s a trip to NRG to run with Deshaun Watson and the Texans, and then Drew Brees and the Saints come a marching to the Big Apple. It doesn’t let up from there either. The Giants next three games are at the Panthers, at home against the Eagles, and then back on the road at the Falcons on Monday Night Football.
To add insult to injury, their two extra games are against the 49ers on the road in Week 10 and the Bears at home in Week 13. Each team is getting a ton of love from the NFL betting markets in preseason betting right now. It would be a huge accomplishment if Shurmur can find a way to coach this team to a .500 campaign this upcoming season.
