The Official 2013 NY Giants Record Prediction Thread

SB : 9/3/2013 3:17 pm
I am going with 11-5. I think they start with a loss then rip off 8 straight wins. Then annoy the hell out of us by finishing 3-4, but still make the playoffs.

At Cowboys Loss
Broncos Win
At Panthers Win
At Chiefs Win
Eagles Win
At Bears Win
Vikings Win
At Eagles Win
Raiders Win
Packers Loss
Cowboys Loss
At Redskins Win
At Chargers Win
Seahawks Win
At Lions Loss
Redskins Loss

(I wouldn't be surprised if Broncos win and we split Philly, which would put us at 9-7. However, I also wouldn't be surprised if we sweep Redskins and go 12-4).

11-5, Division Champs  
mfsd : 9/3/2013 6:05 pm : link
I'm strangely confident about this team. Or just enjoying a little pre-season optimism.
We've had question marks going into every season.  
arcarsenal : 9/3/2013 6:09 pm : link
This isn't a new thing.

Despite all of the defenses struggles last year, we were still within one game winning play a couple games we lost from winning the division and being in the playoffs.

I think the defense is going to be better this year than it was last year. Even if that means only being average.

None of the other 3 teams in the division are good enough to run away with it. We'll be right in it at the end and probably have a chance to lock it up on final day of the reg season at home against Washington.
9-7 is my prediction. Give or take one win is definitely possible.  
Natek212 : 9/3/2013 6:22 pm : link
Eli needs to have a better season. I think he will, but if not, I think we're looking at 8-8. We didn't improve all that much in the offseason, and our division only got stronger. Although, I have a feeling David Wilson is going to go off this year carrying us to a couple wins.

11-5

Magic ride to the Super Bowl. Not sure we win it all though.
8-8, because playing against the read option negates our greatest  
yatqb : 9/3/2013 6:57 pm : link
defensive strength, our DEs, and puts a great strain on our OLBs, who are average at best (and I think I'm being kind here).
I like 9-7  
dcp : 9/3/2013 7:01 pm : link
5-3 on the road and 4-4 at home. Home wins against Packers and Seahawks but loses to Raiders and Redskins hurt playoff chances.
For those of you who pick 7-9 or worse  
NY-Fan : 9/3/2013 7:14 pm : link
Come on!. Just look at the track record of this team under Coughlin. The Giants have gone 8-8 or better every year except one and that was Coughlin's first year and that was with a rookie QB taking over. Those years some of those teams had serious injury situations and still finished over 500. This team may be weak in a few areas but it also has some of the best talent the Giants have ever had at some positions.

Don't know why I'm so confident, just have a strange feeling we will be playingin NFC championship at home, followed by thea manning bowl at met life ,sort of Like 2000, when things went our way. Coughlin and Eli will get their 3 rd SB RING. Or we could stb n be 8-8?

BlueHurricane : 9/3/2013 8:46 pm : link
Revamped line with a little youth infused comes together and provides Eli with time and he becomes UNSTOPPABLE like his watch. David Wilson becomes a powderkeg ready to explode at any second every time he touches the ball.

Dan Connor plays a decent MLB and Rivers finally stays healthy and has a great year. The D line is a force and starts eating QB's for lunch again and the DB's finally know what the hell is going on from play to play and don't look like 3 blind mice out there.

Let's go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
9-7 - outside shot at the playoffs.  
jcn56 : 9/3/2013 8:46 pm : link
Don't trust the defense, and I'm concerned with our overall ability to stay healthy at some key positions (CB/DE/OL).

Think the wheels finally come off Dallas, Philly underperforms with Kelly, and Washington ends up with a similar record, +/-1 depending on their health.
I'll play the percentages and go with

ShockNRoll : 9/3/2013 9:15 pm : link
despite what i consider to actually be a difficult schedule. i'm not sure what people are looking at when they say "soft schedule". all 6 nfc east games will be tough, denver, seattle, green bay, minnesota, chicago, carolina, kansas city will all be tough too. however, i am very confident in this team.
Somewhere from 8-8 to 10-6, as usual.  
Riggies : 9/3/2013 9:34 pm : link
I guess I'll split that and say specifically 9-7 after an 0-2 start (one close loss, one blow-out one).

I don't really understand the 6-10/even 7-9 stuff. It's a QB driven league. The Giants have Eli Manning. He may not be in the top tier with his brother, Rodgers, and Brady, no, but he should be seen as good enough to "lock" this team at least into 8 wins, if he's healthy, almost regardless of the defense, particularly with this schedule.
I stopped counting  
Doomster : 9/3/2013 9:52 pm : link
around 8:46 PM......

13% predicted a losing record.....

22% predict a .500 record....

15% predict 9 wins

16% predict 11 wins

7% predict 12 or more wins....

26%, the majority, predict 10 wins....

Mine was 8-8, +/- 1.....

10 wins may win the division, but it may involve tie breakers....I don't think 9 wins makes the playoffs....

Have no confidence in this defense......the offense has to carry this team......question marks with Nicks, the Cruz heel, depth at RB, the possible lack of production from the TE position, the merry go round OL and lack of depth in the OL.....before the preseason, I had a lot more faith in the offense, and thought they were capable of 10 or more wins.....but the way the offense has performed, and the injuries that have arisen, have tempered my guess....

These are the NY Football Giants....it would not surprise me to see them miss the playoffs again.....but it also wouldn't surprise me, if Eli steps it up again, and makes those around him, step up their game, and this team makes the playoffs.... We faced this many times last year....which team was going to show up from week to week....this year will be no different....

M.S. : 9/4/2013 7:17 am : link
...according to the front page, 1,526 BBIers have made a prediction of the Giants 2013 record. The weight average of their votes is (drum roll)...

9 wins.

9 wins... ho-hum.
they were 10-6 in 2010  
djm : 9/4/2013 3:20 pm : link
and a quarter away from 11-5
9-7 in 2011 and could have gone 10-6 with a little luck in the Packers loss. But they also won a few close games that year.
9-7 last year and if they make 1-2-3 plays in 1-2-3 games against Dallas or Pitt or Philly, they win 10 games but again, they did win a game or two last year that could have gone the other way.

With that said, this team has been hovering around the 9-10-11 win mark for 3 straight seasons heading into this season. The QB is still in place along with the coaching staff. The OL has a new RT that should be an upgrade. The DTs appear to be better than they have been since 2010-2011 and the DEs are about the same, assuming JPP is doing his thing before too long.

The one area I think is clearly better than last year and even 2011? The passing game. I think the WRs are better. I think Myers at TE is at worst about equal to Ballard or Bennett or whoever was there in 2010. I think the DBs are better because Prince is a better cover guy than anyone we've had on this team in years.

I think this team is a little bit better than prior Giants teams, mainly at WR and perhaps with some luck, OL.

Ill say 11-5. This team is better than last year's team. They will win ONE of those close games that they couldn't win last year and won't have to contend with an absolutely brutal schedule--something they dealt with for 2 straight seasons by the way. People around here seem to forget that this team navigated the NFL's toughest schedule for 2 straight seasons.
and as long as Eli and this staff are in place  
djm : 9/4/2013 3:26 pm : link
I will never predict anything less than 9 wins. IT happened once, in 2009 when the worst DC in sports history was in place.

This team always contends and wins at least 9 games. I see no reason to expect the bottom to fall out. The schedule finally lets up and a lot of players are playing for their careers this season. I love where this team sits right now and I think the weaknesses on this team are overstated, especially at OL. The defense will be suspect but so is every NFL defense. If it plays a little better, just a little better this team will be trouble. They will definitely score points. They always do.
head vs heart  
AnnapolisMike : 9/4/2013 3:28 pm : link
The head says this team should be better than last year. The offense should be equal and the defense should be better. One thing that scares me is that the Giants got turnovers last year....will they get them this year?

I'll go with 11-5 from the head. The Giants will have a positive turnover ratio. Assuming of course they stay relatively healthy.

The heart is not so confident and feels this could be a difficult year. Perhaps a really bad 6 wins or less type of year if the wheels come off.

Head wins....at least for now.
and I think the CBs  
djm : 9/4/2013 3:29 pm : link
are much better than last year. Prince was slow in getting on track last year and Ross was not here. Hosley was a rookie and Webster was shaky. Even if Web is shaky this year, Hosley and Prince will be better and Ross is in the fold.

This team got better in three key areas: WR, DT and CB.
i'll eat my hat  
djm : 9/4/2013 3:30 pm : link
if this team loses 9-10 games. No way that happens unless the unthinkable and unmentionable occurs.

Jon from PA : 9/4/2013 7:05 pm : link
BUT I think this year feels different. I don't believe we start 6-2 this year either. It feels like a slow start year but we have potential. I say after a rough start we finish 9 and 7.
11-5

7-9 I had high hopes last year, and we crapped the bed  
Scrub : 9/7/2013 2:35 pm : link
I didn't see the changes I was hoping for, the injuries have already started on the D, the offense is going to be inconsistent and give he D little rest.

the person who started the thread has us loosing to Dallas twice, yet coming out 11-5. Don't think so. One of the wins is against Den, and we have NO NFL starting quality LB's, and a beat up secondary. Yeah that should go well. * TD's for Manning in week 2?

Mike in NY : 9/8/2013 7:35 am : link
The Defense is that of a team competing for a top 5 pick and I just cannot see the OL holding up enough to allow Eli the chance of pulling off some heroics
The one thing that will prevent us from being totally atrocious
