Giants Record in 2005? 8-8? Better? Worse?

Postby Dexter II » Thu Jul 07, 2005 8:00 pm

What should we expect of the Giants this year?

I think if they go 8-8 that would be a decent year all thing's considered.

Others I've spoken to think 8-8 is a done deal and the playoffs (via Wild Card) are very possible.

Any thoughts?

I'm with you; 8-8 sounds like a decent campaign. Sure, a better record and a playoff spot are both possible, but so is a sub-.500 year. It'll definitely be an interesting team to watch...

I'd be happy to see 8-8 this season. I think the talent is there to do well but I think we are 2 years away from really contending

i do think the giants can get over 8-8 and make it to the playoffs baring any serious injuries... shockey looks poised to bounce back and elis timing with plax and toomer has looked great in practice

this team can only get better maybe next years their year

Agreed, and agreed. The O-line is looking better. The D-Line will be nice as well, hopefully they don't get butchered again by injuries. Those were two huge problems last year. I'll be perfectly satisfied with 8-8, but there's always a chance they'll surprise (or fall off a cliff).

8-8 with upside

They are definately capable of an 8-8 year, but if they can get Manning on track, they could surprise with better (10-6?). It will take some luck though, to avoid injuries and win a few close ones.

Well, our team rankers aren't terribly optimistic about the Giants' prospects...

I didn't realize crack was so popular around these parts. :-D

But that doesn't really surprise me all that much. There are still lots of questions, and after last year's collapse I'm sure there are plenty of doubters.

I think 10-6 this season is very realistic ! Unless there are major injuries .
