Prior to the start of the 2018 season, many New York Giants fans were filled with high expectations for the year. But as the season progressed and the Giants struggled, most fans seemed to turn their attention to the 2019 NFL Draft.
And when considering the fact that the Giants have a combined eight wins over the previous two seasons, it may seem tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
But with the offseason upon us, let’s take a look at some reasons for optimism coming out of the 2018 season.
After coming into the season with a perceived revamped offensive line, it didn’t take long for most to realize the line hadn’t improved much, if at all.
There were many changes across the line including the loss of John Halapio, and the parting of ways with Ereck Flowers and Patrick Omameh, which ultimately resulted in improvement as the season moved along. The most notable effective change came when the Giants claimed Jamon Brown off waivers.
With Saquon Barkley coming off a legendary rookie year, he’s only going to get better if the Giants can improve their offensive line. Ideally, that will be a focus this offseason.
