The NFC is loaded

nyjuggernaut2 : 3/10/2018 8:07 pm
Think of the strong teams currently in the NFC. Philly, Dallas, New Orleans, Carolina, Atlanta, Minny, Green Bay, St.Louis, and even San Fran now with Garrapolo. That's 9 really good teams, not to mention Seattle who still has Russel Wilson, Washington who aren't terrible, and Detroit who were a playoff team two years ago and still have Stafford in his prime.

I know it's still early in the offseason but it's gonna be tough a tough road for the Giants in the NFC to get back to the playoffs right away IMO.
I had this conversation with my co-worker the other day.

How many teams can you say are not contenders as of right now? I can think of maybe 2 and they are Arizona and Chicago. When I say contenders I just mean a team that will be fighting for a playoff spot. After all of the subtractions that Seattle has made maybe they enter there.
I can't imagine there's anyone who isn't half in the bag

thinks the Giants have a shot at the playoffs this year. If you believe that, I have a pile of money in your name left by the estate of a Nigerian prince. Just need your SSN and a mailing address.
Which is precisely why now is the time to rebuild

Without even looking outside the division, how likely is it this team is going to surpass Dallas or Philadelphia within the next 2 seasons?
Yeah and compare that to the AFC  
nyjuggernaut2 : 3/10/2018 8:20 pm : link
where I can name at least a half dozen teams that most likely aren't playoff contenders.

Exactly my point. Which is why this offseason is the most important one since 2004. The decisions management makes in the next couple months, especially at the QB position, will make or break this team's future for the next decade or so.

Then I guess you hate giant management. They absolutely believe we can be a playoff team. So do I and many others. Do you watch the NFL? Seriously its a year to year league. Every year things change. Pay attention

in the minority here... I see mediocrity everywhere in this League.
Most teams are in that 6-10 to 10-6 talent range.  
FStubbs : 3/10/2018 9:39 pm : link
You have a few exceptional teams and a few horrid teams.

The Giants right now are one of those horrid teams. The roster is a complete shambles and it's time to rebuild. May as well do it while the NFC is peaking.

I would not be surprised to see this team picking in the top 10 - if not top 5 - again next year. Too many problems to fix in one offseason with only 5 draft picks.

As would I. Thereís a better chance they go 6-10 than 10-6, in my opinion.

Another top 10 pick is not the worst thing if they want to establish something with sustainability.
add LA Rams

There are zero great teams......

All have flaws.....and any can be in playoff

The Giants are in every way as bad as the Bears and Cardinals.
with the right moves  
GmeninPSL : 3/10/2018 10:27 pm : link
I can see the Giants being the Rams or Jags of the 2017 season. This ain't no rebuilt as much as it is a reboot!
I'm with Eric on this.

I don't hate Giant management. That's an odd thing to say.

But guess what, Giant management has gotten a bunch of things wrong since 2011. That's why we are where we are, two coaches and a GM firing later, thinking that you're "just a few moves away" when you're not.

Not odd at all. My point is they believe we can win this year. That's the mindset. I think it's odd you think it's crazy to suggest we could be a playoff team when analyzing how the league works
Teams have gone from worst to first havenít they

Why not the Giants itís possible ..... I agree with Eric also
Itís been pretty easy for bottom teams to get better quick  
UConn4523 : 3/11/2018 7:59 am : link
weíve seen it a ton. Why on earth canít that be the Giants? Our talent level isnít that of a 3 win team - Iíd say thereís a bigger likelihood of a winning record than having 3 losses again.

The teams listed in the OP all have a chance to do one or the other including the Giants.

Eric is right, parity and mediocrity runs rampant.

I could go through each team the OP stated and pick apart their rosters.
While on that subject, how many here thought the Giants roster last off-season was in "shambles". I bet not many. Their are big time holes abounding, but lets see how DG reshapes the roster. With better coaching and schemes, an 8-8 season is not too much wishful thinking, and all 500% teams are in the hunt.

Teams have good seasons. Injuries change everything. So does Father Time.
