Will the 2022 Giants Be Bad?

Giants fans in New York are hoping to recruit forward staff and coaches, as well as the 2022 NFL draft. The arrow seems to point upward.

Not, however, if you are a New York journalist covering the giants. Jeremy Portnoy sent links to several predictors of Giants 2022 history. Here are the results:

Zack Rosenblatt, NJ.com: 5-12

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv: 6-11

Dan Duggan, The Athletic: 5-12

And frankly, Mark Hale of the New York Post predicts that “the Giants will be the worst team in the NFL next season.”

This is no better than the 4-13 2021 team that hoisted the white flag at error at the end of the season. Nick Falato of BBV alone has every hope for the 2022 Giants, predicting a 7-10 win. While this may not make them a juggernaut, it could be their best record since the 2016 season.

Have the Giants been better, worse, or have they been the same for a while? Here are a few things to consider:

roster, frustration

Here are the comparisons between the frustrated Giants 2021 and 2022 teams. The 2021 list was not enough to say a bit, and the 2022 opening list has not been set yet, so I just wrote down what I see of the 20 most important players for the 2021 team that entered that season and thought hard about. 2022:

Disappointing roster comparisons

2021 2022
2021 2022
QB Daniel Jones Daniel Jones
Mike Glennon Tyrod Taylor
OL Andrew Thomas Andrew Thomas
Shane Lemieux Shane Lemieux
Nick Gates Jon Feliciano
Kodi Hernandez Mark Gownski
Nate Solder Evan Neal
Matt Peart Joshua Ezeudu
Billy Price Max Garcia
Ben Bredeson Matt Gono
WR Kenny Gollday Kenny Gollday
Kadarius Toney Kadarius Toney
Sterling Shepard Sterling Shepard
Darius Slayton Darius Slayton
John Ross Wan’Dale Robinson
INU Evan Engram Ricky Seals-Jones
Kyle Rudolph Jordan Akins
Kaden Smith Daniel Bellinger
RB Saquon Barkley Saquon Barkley
Devontae Booker Matt Breida

QB: Daniel Jones, with or without Tyrod Taylor due to injury, should be better than Mike Glennon’s 6+ games with Jake Fromm. Taylor started for three years at Buffalo, had a record 22-20 in those years, and took them to the playoffs once.

OL: Repairing the Giants’ OL is a concept for many years. But Mark Glowinski is promoted to Will Hernandez at RG, and Evan Neal, despite having a lot of pain, could not be worse than Nate Solder or Matt Peart was last year at RT. The Giants have several choices in LG, each one having to be better or better than Matt Skura or Ben Bredeson. Jon Feliciano is probably no worse off than Billy Price, who has played for C.

WR: These players are very similar to last year among the future players with the exception of one. Will Wan’Dale Robinson be a better player than John Ross?

YOU: Maybe the Giants ’solid room is back in shape this year. Or one could argue that Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph did not make much in spite of his high status, and that Kaden Smith, despite his great love, saw his career terminated due to injury. The fourth option Daniel Bellinger is a wild card.

RB: Saquon Barkley, who is now completely cured, will have another chance to prove what he can do as a starting RB. Anything that is approaching its 2018 season could be a big change. Devontae Booker did a good job last year, but remains an assistant for some reason. Matt Breida is a survival strategy for saving.

list, security

Based on a similar approach to self-defense, this is a comparison between 2021 and 2022:

security comparisons

2021 2022
2021 2022
Edge Lorenzo Carter Kayvon Thibodeaux
Azeez Ojulari Azeez Ojulari
Quincy Roche Quincy Roche
Oshane Ximines Elerson Smith
IDL Leonard Williams Leonard Williams
Austin Johnson Justin Ellis
Dexter Lawrence Dexter Lawrence
Danny Shelton Jihad Ward
ILB Blake Martinez Blake Martinez

CB James Bradberry Adore ‘Jackson
Adore ‘Jackson Aaron Robinson
Darnay Holmes Darnay Holmes
Aaron Robinson Cordale Flott
Rodarius Williams Rodarius Williams
s Xavier McKinney Xavier McKinney
logan ryan Julian Love
Jabrill Pepper Dane Belton

Edge: Will Kayvon Thibodeaux be better than post-Achilles Lorenzo Carter, who just made the last 5 games? Will the awareness year make Azeez Ojulari, Quincy Roche, and Elerson Smith effective? The answer to both questions must be yes.

IDL: Leonard Williams and Dexter Lawrence are back. Austin Johnson was probably better than his successor, Justin Ellis, but Johnson quit after a strong start in 2021. Jihad Ward should be better than Danny Shelton, who did not give the giants anything even a long playing time.

ILB: Blake Martinez is back after missing 14 games, for the first time in five years without a season. That alone makes LB Corps better than 2021. Tae Crowder is someone in charge, but Micah McFadden and Darrian Beavers could force him to play for time. Jaylon Smith, the only Giants ILB who was well known in 2021, remains a free agent.

CB: This is the biggest possible failure in 2022. James Bradberry did not have a good 2021, leaving 8 TDs with 93 passers and missing 21.7 percent of what he did, all of the highest in the job. But at the moment his replacement appears to be Aaron Robinson, who did not play well enough at the border in 2021 to prove he could be a successful CB2. Darnay Holmes returns to the fold; Will Cor’Dale Flott replace him? Will Rodarius Williams be the best option on the return line from ACL?

S: Xavier McKinney returns after the second season explosion and shows any sign of being on top S. The defensive chamber is smaller after Logan Ryan’s release, but Ryan played very well for the Giants last year. The Julian Love drama in 2022 was as good as Ryan’s. Dane Belton will get a chance to prove he can offer what Jabrill Peppers did.


The Giants lost more human games due to injury than any other NFL team in 2021. They are also the team that suffered the most injuries in the NFL from 2009-2021:

Is it a MetLife production facility? Probably, even most of the Giants were seriously injured in 2021 in training camps or on the road. The picture above does not show a significant association of injury with turf. Were they the teaching methods of Joe Judge and his staff? maybe. Do giants only have injured players? This can be said of the WR Corps, although Kadarius Toney played all year in Florida last year without missing a single game, and Darius Slayton did not miss a single game that year, either.

With the exception of Blake Martinez, Aaron Robinson and Elerson Smith did not leave the training camp, returning in mid-season. Shane Lemieux, Nick Gates, Kaden Smith, and Rodarius Williams did not play.

Injuries are often unexpected. The rationale for 2022 may be that the Giants will not have as many injuries for key players as 2021. Which is a coincidence, the Buffalo Bills were the most injured team in the NFL last year. Probably Brian Daboll and Co. to know something, or maybe he was lucky.

teaching staff

The Giants strikers do not seem to think that coaching and playing are the most important part of a team’s performance. Yet the coaching changes made by the Giants are considered to be one of the main reasons for optimism for the future. Brian Daboll, Mike Kafka, Wink Martindale vs. Joe Judge, Jason Garrett, Patrick Graham. Think of Martindale vs. Graham cleans very well, even though their teaching methods are different. However, by mistake, the combination of Daboll and Kafka deserves to be a bigger change than what Garrett and Freddie Kitchens did last season. And expect Daboll to receive analytics more often than the Judge did when it came to phones 4 and 3 in the Opposition category.

It takes time to get used to the new defensive tactics, and the Giants will certainly be aggressive on the sidelines for a long time. But so too are their few opponents who can be defeated (Jaguars, Bears, Texans). In 2020 it did not take long for the defense to learn from Patrick Graham’s plots even though the epidemic blocked the connection – the Giants were about to knock the Rams out of game 3.

Daboll and Kafka emphasize the integrated (low-low, coated) methods that spring openers open, in contrast to the isolation methods Garrett prefers. Chris Pflum tried to read the tea leaves to see if the Giants could make the most of the indoor zone to give Saquon Barkley the best running tracks in a case that could use the spread or Air Raid concept. It is hard to imagine that, in combination with better OL, the Giants will not have a better error in 2022.

Simple process

The Giants are expected to have the simplest schedule in the NFL in 2022:

That’s just speculation. Each year some teams are surprised, others are disappointed. But last year the Giants shot with one of the strongest goals in the NFL (which is why he scored No. 5 despite having the same record as the 4-13 Texans and Jets).

Opponents of divisions are always the same. The Eagles could be a good team. It is not clear if Dallas and Washington are.

Other NFC opponents are Chicago, Green Bay, Detroit, Minnesota, Carolina, Seattle, vs. Tampa Bay, New Orleans, Atlanta, Carolina, Chicago, Los Angeles in 2021. The level of difficulty is all the same.

AFC opponents Tennessee, Indianapolis, Houston, Jacksonville, Baltimore vs. Kansas City, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, Miami. Two highly defeated opponents vs. none in 2021 (although the Giants defeated Las Vegas).

This is not a year to look forward to the playoffs, nor does it look like a year of commitment. With Nick Falato: 7-10. Fans of giants, what do you think?
