What the Giants need to improve for the 2015 season. posted by NY Giants Fan
As the Giants enter week 10 of their season, the playoffs are pretty much a foregone thought at this point. It’s time to start looking ahead to next season and see what problem areas need addressing for the 2015 season.
The one area that needs the most addressing is the receiving corps. They no longer have the proven commodities of Plaxico Burress or a Hakeem Nicks, and now with Cruz out for the year with a torn right patellar tendon, the Giants need to find a new go-to option for Eli.
Now the rest of the season is seeing who among the available Giants’ receivers can emerge as the No. 1 option for Eli.
There’s Rueben Randle. The highly touted second round pick has shown flashes of greatness but neither the clutch play or consistent play to become a true no. 1 receiver.
Then there’s Odell Beckham Jr. The No. 12 overall pick was expected to pick up the production that Nicks’ once had a few years back. While he’s been great so far this season, with yet a drop to record, the sample size is still too small to make a definitive decision either way.
Then there’s undrafted free agent Corey Washington, an unknown talent that’s been buried down the depth chart, but with the Giants’ slew of injuries, the small-school Washington has been thrust into a starting role with a chance to prove his potential.
There’s a lot of questions left to be answered for new York, but the Giants have 8 weeks to answer them. Which among Beckham, Randle, or Washington will emerge as the new Giants super star. In a perfect world, all three world, but we all know that we don’t live in a perfect world.Continue reading "What the Giants need to improve for ..."
