New York Giants 2023-24 NFL Season Recap

New York Giants NFL Season Recap

Though the New York Giants won nine games as well as a playoff game in Brian Daboll’s first season calling the shots, linemakers were down on the GMEN entering the 2023-24 NFL betting season. While inked to a contract extension in the offseason with a healthy Saquon Barkley by his side and new toy to play with in Darren Waller, Daniel Jones and Co. saw their season win total only fatten up by half a game from the previous season. Shocker! Linemakers proved to be correct doubting New York being in a position to exceed let alone match last year’s output with the campaign lost right after it began.

The 40-0 shutout loss to kick off the year against the division rival Cowboys proved to be a foreshadowing of frightening things to come with New York getting out to a wretched 1-5 SU start and scoring a grand total of 71 points along the way. The lone win was logged after battling back from a 20-0 halftime deficit to oust the Cardinals 31-28 in the desert. “Danny Dimes” was tremendous in that game throwing for 321 yards and 2 TD while adding another score with his legs. NY sports talk radio was singing his praises immediately after which silenced his naysayers for the time being due to the contract signed in the offseason. Little did the media know, but it would amount to his best showing of a campaign that would last six total starts.

The Giants turnstile offensive line allowed Jones to get sacked six times in the 31-16 loss and non-cover to the Miami Dolphins in Week 6. The final one injured the Giants QB1 and kept him out of the next three games with a neck stinger. Tyrod Taylor and Tommy DeVito took over in his stead, and then the latter got a bunch more burn soon after when “Dimes” was lost for the season after tearing an ACL in his return to the playing field against the Raiders in Week 9. From there, the “Tommy Cutlets” era began with the undrafted QB that slept on his mother’s couch leading the team to three straight victories against the Commanders, Patriots, and Packers before being benched for Taylor weeks later due to ineffectiveness.

Due to the carousel under center, New York’s offense proved to be an unmitigated disaster with it ranked amongst the worst in the league in just about every pertinent stat category. The unit could still run the ball (No. 16), but only because the offense had a stud like Barkley in the backfield. The O-Line opened holes for just 4.1 yards per carry (No. 18), leading to No. 26 failing to hit the 1,000 yard plateau for the second time in his career with at least 13 starts under his belt. The passing game created a grand total of 15 passing touchdowns. Needless to say, but Wan’Dale Robinson and his mates were hung out to dry.

The other side of the ball didn’t prove to be much better with it serving up north of 361 yards (No. 27) and 24 points (No. 26) per game. Only the Panthers and Bears sacked the quarterback fewer times than Wink Martindale’s stop unit. While the unit led the league in takeaways (31), it still wasn’t enough to help New York even flirt with a winning record. Daboll and Martindale were often seen butting heads on the sideline throughout the regular season. News of their relationship straying surfaced a number of times. It all came to a head two days into the offseason when a bulk of the defensive staff was let go. Martindale objected and would soon after resign from his post.

The nightmare season closes with the New York suffering its sixth losing campaign in the last seven after posting 6-11 SU and 8-8-1 ATS records with the under cashing in 11 times. It also marked the fifth time in the last six years that the Giants failed to exceed their season win total with this year’s impost closing 7.5.

New York Giants 2024 Offseason

So many potholes, such little time to fill ‘em all in. I don’t envy the position GM Joe Schoen finds himself in heading into the 2024 offseason. The first order of business should be to pay Saquon Barkley the money he deserves. Dude’s the lifeblood and face of the franchise right now. Let him go, and it could alienate the fan base enough to the point that a toxic environment casts a dark could on Giants home games throughout the duration of 2024-25.

When putting New York’s overall body of work under the microscope, it’s tough to pinpoint one area that needs improvement. With that, I haven’t a clue – nor does many an NFL Draft prognosticator – have an idea of what the Giants will look to do with the sixth overall pick. You’d think offensive line help would be a given considering the unit just served up a league-worst 85 sacks, but you never truly know what this franchise is thinking come draft day!

Founded in 1925, the New York Giants are a foundational legacy franchise. The Giants were one of five teams that joined the NFL in 1925. The Mara Family has been involved in the team's ownership since the late 1920s.

The late Wellington Mara was the best-known member of the family ownership. He served as general manager and later president of the team as an owner from 1937 to 2005.

From 1927 through 1963, the Giants were a consistent contender that won four NFL championships. The period of 1956 through 1963 was a Golden Era of Glory with six championship game appearances but only one title. The Giants lost three consecutive championship games from 1961 through 1963. Following that was a long period of darkness.

Head coach Bill Parcells was not well-known when he took over Big Blue in 1983. But by the time Parcells left in 1991, the Giants had won two Super Bowl championships and regained national respect as a power franchise. Parcells was later enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Two of the greatest wins in franchise history came under the leadership of head coach Tom Coughlin. In 2007 the Giants were a wild card playoff team but made the Super Bowl, where they ruined the New England Patriots’ bid for an undefeated season. In 2011 the Giants were again wild card Super Bowl champions over the Patriots. Coughlin had Eli Manning as his quarterback in those days. Manning is a future Hall of Famer that rewrote the Giants' passing record book.

There have been numerous marquee men that have played for Big Blue. Frank Gifford, Charlie Conerly, YA Tittle, Phil Simms, Lawrence Taylor, and Eli Manning are among the legends.
