The Giants are 1-8 on the season and 0-7 against NFC opponents which is the second worst start in franchise history. So what can be done at this point?
With their loss to the previously win-less San Francisco 49ers, the New York Giants have started the season 0-7 against NFC opponents, the second worst in franchise history behind only the 1976 season when they started 0-8 against NFC opponents. With that you would think it can’t get much worse right? Wrong, it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any better without a decent offensive line and without any wide receivers.
The only thing the Giants can do at this point is bench Eli Manning despite his consecutive start streak which has now reached 208 games tying him with brother Peyton for the second longest in NFL history. The Giants are 1-8, why are we still putting Eli out on the field if we are not winning, we are not going to make the playoffs, so prepare for the draft and prepare for the future.
The way to do this is bench Eli Manning and give Davis Webb a few games as quarterback. It has been reported that the Giants will be looking to draft a quarterback in the 2018 draft but we may not need to. For all we know Davis Webb could be the future of the New York Giants.
Would it really hurt to give Webb some experience so that maybe come the 2018 draft we don’t have to draft a quarterback? It would be nice to focus on the positions we actually need, positions like left tackle and every other position on the offensive line. I’d like to think we need a running back but I think Wayne Gallman has a serious future with the G-Men.
What the Giants need to do for the remaining seven games of the season is to try different things, see what works, see what doesn’t and fix those holes in the 2018 draft. See if we have a future with Wayne Gallman as running back, see if we have a future with Davis Webb at quarterback, and once and for all, fire Ben McAdoo. Doing these things won’t win us games this season but it will win us games next year and in the future.
