Funny. But sadly true.
They have better personnel this year

We will see if it translates to the playing field.

There is no reason to believe the defense won't be very good or excellent. Can the OL be better enough to allow the Giants to do more things on offense?

Personally, I am as optimistic as I have been for the start of a season in years.
I'm pumped

but watching the efficiency of that KC offense makes me wonder if the Giants O will be able to keep pace with the leagues top teams.
Last year, if they had to play a game without Odell Beckham,

they probably weren't going to score any points. This year's team has the ability to be far more flexible and explosive with it's personnel.
I think the Giants are going to be good

but they had an easy schedule last year. The Giants beat two teams that ended up over .500: The Lions and Dallas. They lost to the only playoff teams they played, the Steelers and the Pack.

The Dallas wins were impressive, but its not like we blew them out. Either of those games could have gone either way.

The Giants didn't have a running game or a TE, so their offense was basically, "Hope Odell Does Something Amazing."

If the running game is not hide-your-eyes terrible I think the new TEs are going to be very good, and the Giants could be in business. But let's not pencil them in yet.
A lot of work to do

If this D is as good as it can be KC won't sniff 30 points when they come to met life.
