I'm ever the optimist, but I think you're reaching a bit.

A little better play from both units and the Giants could have approached being a .500 team.

We're a bit further away than that.
Clams,

it would have taken more than a little better play from the defense......they were just about the worst 4th quarter defense out there...

Lost by a few points each, Add another 4 wins, and the Giants are in...and those losses are against mostly playoff teams....

The really interesting thing about 3 of those 4 games, the offense played poorly in the 2nd half (Eagles) or in either of Cowboys/Colts could have won the game with a FG and actually had the ball with time.

So while you say defense, I say offense lol.....either way I think we're both right, both units need to improve in 2019 and then we could be looking at .500 (or maybe playoffs with some bounces).
I'm sure OLB Coach Mike Dawson will do great...  
M.S. : 2/11/2019 3:34 pm : link

...once the team finds a few OLBers.

Need to be able to stop that gut wrenching 2 pointer at the end of the Dallas game...that's a win with a stop, and a loss with no stop.
true

but you would be looking at maybe picking10th or 12th..if we won that game
Ha!

Baker had rejoined the Rutgers staff before deciding to take the (better) Giants job.

Maybe this was the BBIer who got the "Godfather" offer - the Giants "made him an offer he couldn't refuse".

Note his defensive line background. Our OLB's are DE/LB hybrids.

And they don't play either position particularly well!

We'll see about Lorenzo Carter.

Olivier Vernon is a maddening player.
New coaches have ties to possible players we may consider

Mike Dawson coached Brandon Graham who could be a free agent option, particularly if we move on from Vernon.

Henry Baker coached FS Nasir Adderley when he was at Delaware. He could be on the draft radar.
