The New York Giants have been one of the most boring teams to watch this season and the reason isn’t hard to figure out. The Giants problems start and end with Eli Manning. Let’s be honest, Eli has been a terrible quarterback for the past five years but the Giants apparently aren’t willing to admit that. What we maybe didn’t know is that the Giants problems stem far greater than lack of a deep passing game.
Check out what Odell Beckham had to say about the Giants state of the franchise:
“So a lot of it has to do with the energy that we don’t have, that we don’t bring every single day,” Beckham said, via the New York Daily News. “And you know me. I’m a passionate, energetic person. I always have to have that. If I don’t, it’s gonna be a problem for me. And just playing with some heart. We just need to play with some heart. We’re only 1-3, you know. The year we went 11-5, we were 2-3. We ended up being 2-3 after five games. So you never know when you can go on a run. But it’s just a matter of when we gonna go on a run. How come we can’t throw the ball for more than 20 yards? How come we don’t attempt or try to throw the ball for more than 20 yards? Those are questions that we have to figure out, but for now I would say it’s our heart, it’s our energy. It’s what we bring when we line up before the game, all of that. It counts.”
After a 3-13 record last year, I’m not sure why some people expected a quick turn around from the Giants. Pat Shurmur has already failed as a head coach with the Browns. Eli Manning legitimately might be the worst quarterback in the league. They even signed Nate Solder to make him the highest paid left tackle in the league and he’s the 4th best tackle in the division. This team is a mess and there is no other way to say it.
