Predict the New York Giants record with out schedule

NephilimGiants : 6/1/2019 5:09 pm
@Dallas
vs Bills
@Tampa
vs Redkins
vs Vikings
@Pats
vs Cards
@Lions
@ Cowboys
@ Jets
Bye week
@ Bears
vs Green bay
@ Philly
vs Dolphins
@ Redskins
vs Philly


Heres mine:
0-1 @Dalls, Cowgirls wins they wont let happen when Giants went 11-5 season and they only had 2 losses the whole seasons from only the G-Men. It was a luck win
0-2 vs Bills. playing in their home and they finally have something to prove
1-2 @Tampa. Again we playing in their home but Tampa's QB is crap
2-2 vs Redkins. They playing in our house and got a couple of our players so Giants will do their best to taunt them with how better they are without them....I mean they have Flowers so how hard could it be.
2-3 vs Vikings. This is really a guess because its our home time and Cousins couldnt even beat us when he had playoffs on the line in his own home town.
2-4 @Pats. Brady of course gatta have his revenge plus in Boston so their fans are crazy to beat Eli his may be last season
3-4 vs Cards. Worse team last year and rookie QBs barley beat Eli
4-4 @Lions. We pretty much always beat them. Giants use Lions to practice during the offseason
5-4 @ Cowboys. This one will be a good ass game as always but giants win with dexter lawerence able to shut down Zeke
6-4 @ Jets. This is GIANTS HOME!!!
7-4 @ Bears. We win only because coming off a bye or else id say Bears.
7-5 vs Green bay. Tough one, if it was at Green bay id say they win
7-6 @ Philly. Philly bean beating us hard last 20 years but Eli was close twice last year for first time so we may win if Wentz is out.
8-6 vs Dolphins. This is prob our easiest game of the year but it will still end up a close one
9-6 @ Redskins. Giants give it to that rookie Haskins after he had a hard season to finish the debate of wether him or Jones is better
10-6 vs Philly. Giants finish off at a home game vs our worse rivery and Eli puts his best performs as he plays his last game of the season before we go into playoffs

Sorry, I ment our schedule

@Dallas =L=probably a good game, but Dallas makes too many big plays for Giants to handle.
vs Bills =W=Giants get back on track vs bad Bills team & shaky 2nd year Josh Allen
@Tampa =L=Tough fought game that leads to tough loss. Giants play better in cooler climate.
vs Redskins=W=Redskins always struggle in N.Y. No different here.
vs Vikings=L=Cousins can win games that don't matter & this game don't matter.
@Pats=L=Lopsided victory for Pat's.
vs Cards=L=Giants struggle vs mobile QB's. Giants are the better team, but they let an inferior opponent upset them.
@Lions=L=Stafford blows up the Giants defense. Giants can't stop the rain that is poured out on them.
Cowboys=L=Giants start to unravel
@ Jets=W=Giants feel at home this game. Sam Darnold doesn't have his best day.
Bye week
@ Bears=L=Bears are a Playoff team & the Giants are not.
vs Green bay=L=Outmatched vs that Rodgers passing attack.
@ Philly=W=Philly is better on the road & the Giants pull off upset.
vs Dolphins=L= and then follow it up with a stinker vs Josh Rosen.
@ Redskins=L=Haskins #7 is in a zone and kicks the Giants ass. GIANTS give up on season here.
vs Philly=L=Philly desperate for a win & play well on the road.

I got 4-12 for you guys.

Agree with IRA up until the rematch with the Boys, that we lose at home to fall back to Earth at 5-4. We then squeeze past the Jets to get to 6-4 with rekindled playoff hopes, but they go up in smoke after the Bye week with 3 straight loses to the Bears, Green Bay, and Philly.

At 6-7, with three games left on the schedule and out of the real playoffs race (ie not mathematically eliminated but control for a PO spot out of our hands) we start the Daniel Jones era vs. the Dolphins.

We go 1-2 under Jones, and finish the year 7-9. Improved, but not yet there, and in a new era post Eli.

Wishful thinking. Loses to the Bucs, Cards, Lions, and Dolphins all ain't happening. Not if the Giants' secondary is improved as much as PFF predicts.

Meanwhile, Washington's secondary is gonna blow chunks.

I was a big Haskins' guy, but when the Giants and everyone else passed on him right up until the Skins... Where there's smoke, there is fire. Caveat emptor.

@Dallas - L (0-1) - Very tough game to start the year
vs Bills - L (0-2) - Bills are improved and could be sneaky good
@Tampa - W(1-2) - Tampa is garbage
vs Redkins - W (2-2) - This is an even match-up, but at home
vs Vikings - L (2-3) - Tough Vikings team
@Pats - L (2-4) - No chance
vs Cards - W (3-4) Should be a fun game and a close one. Giving the Giants the edge because they are at home.
@Lions - W (4-4) Detroit isn't very good.
Cowboys - L (4-5) Even at home, too much for the Giants
@ Jets - L (4-6) Jets are improved, beating the Jets will require getting to the QB, and that's not the Giants strength
Bye week
@ Bears - L (4-7) - Bears are very good
vs Green bay - L (4-8) - This game should be close, but I don't see the Giants pulling this off
@ Philly - L (4-9) - It'll be tough for the Giants to regroup.
vs Dolphins - W (5-9) - Dolphins are really bad
@ Redskins - L (5-10) - I figure Daniel Jones is in by this point in the season and there could be some growing pains.
vs Philly - W (6-10) - Giants are really good at closing meaningless seasons strong.

6-10
8-8

Milton : 6/1/2019 8:56 pm : link
Maybe they blow four to six of them, but I can't predict which those will be because, like I said, they are all winnable. So figure somewhere between 10-6 and 12-4.
p.s.--They destroy the Cowboys in week one!

Giants_Rock : 6/1/2019 9:30 pm : link
We'll likely be favored against the bills, jets, dolphins, cardinals and redskins at home. We'll probably win about 2 as underdogs and lose about 1 as favorites so i say 5-11.
Bad math  
Giants_Rock : 6/1/2019 9:33 pm : link
Should have said 6-10
6-10  
RickInCharlotte : 6/1/2019 9:54 pm : link
After a Thursday night loss @ NE in week 6, the team is 3-3.
With PHI and DAL sitting at 4-1, the change is made. Daniel Jones is announced as starter vs AZ.
Lombardo and Leonard write smug columns.

Jones goes 0-4 into the Bye week, freaking out the fan base.
3-7
PHI sits at 7-2 and DAL at 6-3.
Lombardo and Leonard question the decision to sit Eli, blast DG and list replacements for PS.

After the Bye, Jones rallies and the team finishes 3-3.
6-10.
PHI finishes 12-4, DAL 9-7. WAS 3-13.
Lombardo and Leonard criticize Jones for not doing more.





Dont know how theyll get there over 16 games this year.  
The_Boss : 6/1/2019 9:56 pm : link
But 5-11 has been and will be my prediction.
I have them at 9-7, give or take a game, if fairly healthy  
SGMen : 6/1/2019 10:21 pm : link
Early season wins are key. Even good teams like Dallas can come out and lose a close one. I'd love a 3-0 start followed by our defense beginning to gel. We won't be a pushover this year.

I do believe we will run the ball well and stop the run. I also believe our special teams will be excellent, maybe the best in the NFC.

With some luck, some health, a break or two, we could be in playoff contention the last quarter of the season.
I'll play...

@Dallas W 1-0 team comes out surprisingly sharp in all 3 phases

@ Tampa W 3-0 close game, D wins it in 4th q with a pick 6
vs Redskins W 4-0 not even close, Barkley has a field day
vs Vikings L 4-1 Vikes spank G-men down a peg
@ Pats W 5-1 fantastic upset, O hangs 40+ on Pats
vs Cards L 5-2 team is flat, Eli has very bad day/press loves it
@ Lions W 6-2 because Lions

@ Jets W 8-3 tough close game
BYE
@ Bears L 8-4 Bears' D too much
vs Green Bay W 9-4 solid win by 10 pts
@ Philly L 9-5 the curse continues
vs Dolphins W 10-5 playoff bound G men
@ Redskins W 11-5 Gmen clean their clock
vs Philly L 11-6 and then??? depends on match-up in playoffs

I can dream, can't I?

short lease : 6/2/2019 5:20 am : link

but, I am hoping .... forget it. What I was about to say was going to piss off a lot of people. 1 more high round draft and we fill our team with a lot more talent.

It is not a sprint ... it is a marathon.
Formula for # of Wins goes something like this

That means 8-7-1 or better. If I had a bet it would be 9-7, 6th seed wild card... but I think 10-6/11-5 and winning the division is very possible.
So there are folks who think were a worse team than last year?  
BillT : 6/2/2019 9:40 am : link
If youre picking 4, 5, 6, and maybe even 7 wins with this schedule youre saying were a worse team than last year. I guess thats possible but hard to see the logic behind that. Just the schedule would give us one or two wins even if were no better than last year. Maybe Im wrong about the significant talent upgrade on this team but youd have to show me where.

fwiw cleaned up my original post....never post after a 12=hour shift

meant to say 10-6 and playoffs
predicting the NFL week to week is an exercise in futility  
islander1 : 6/2/2019 12:11 pm : link
but I will say that, season wise, I expect 7-9 and honestly, improvement.

The problems won't be on the offensive side of the ball. Defense isn't built in a year.
6-10 Eli benched vs. The Jets  
larryflower37 : 6/2/2019 1:43 pm : link
@Dallas (L) Ugly game- Giants look out of sync too many new players
vs Bills (W) Win a close, low scoring one at home
@Tampa (W)Offense looks better but close win. (BBI is making playoff plans)
vs Redkins (W) close game (SB talk starts)
vs Vikings (L)Fall down to earth. Vikings win by 2 scores
@Pats (L) Get destroyed on national Television. The offense looks horrible. Pats load up on Barkley.
vs Cards (L) Giants loss in a shootout. Murray runs all over the Giants
@Lions (L) Ugly game- close low scoring mess- Media asking for Jones
@ Cowboys (L)-Barkley plays great but not enough. Eli throws a late pick trying to make a play- Media screaming for Jones
@ Jets (W) Another big Barkley game- Eli benched at halftime. Jones comes in.
Bye week
@ Bears (L) Jones first start. takes a beaten
vs Green bay (L) Jones learning
@ Philly (L)
vs Dolphins (W)Jones plays good and Giants win
@ Redskins (W)Revenge game- both teams out of it and we see the future with Jones

wishful thinking, team improves over last year, everyone somehow stays healthy prediction:

@Dallas - L. Defense isn't ready to gel/step up right away
vs Bills - W
@Tampa - W
vs Redkins - W. Team surprises by winning 3 in a row.
vs Vikings - L
@Pats - L. Team gets brought back down to earth by NE.
vs Cards - W
@Lions - W
vs Cowboys - L. Yet another prime time loss.
@ Jets - W
Bye week
@ Bears - W
vs Green bay - L
@ Philly - L
vs Dolphins - W
@ Redskins - L
vs Philly - W

Very up and down, yet above average year. That's assuming the OL, Barkley and key parts of the D stay healthy.

12-4. We clinch the East and get a first-round bye for a final  
Diver_Down : 6/2/2019 6:21 pm : link
magical run.

Note the second game with Dallas is played in Giants stadium. The template above has us playing away for both games.

@Dallas - W - Eli opened Jerrah's World with the win and finishes his career playing in Jerrah's World for the final time with a win. Also, Zeke is suspended as a repeat offender of the personal conduct policy forcing Dak to demonstrate why he isn't a franchise QB
vs Bills - W - Despite late game heroics by Allen, we eke out the win.
@Tampa - W - Offense looks OK, but the defense is awesome with Winston turning over the ball.
vs Redkins - W - Doughboy Haskins likes his New York style Pizza and our D-Line explodes sacking the Roly Poly.
vs Vikings - W - Shurmur know the Vikes and Cousins sucks still.
@Pats - L - New England has shaken off their early season funk and are hitting their stride. We lose big.
vs Cards - W - Calamari served up New York style.
@Lions - W - This is a close one, but Barkley gives Lions fans visions of Barry Sanders.
vs Cowboys - L - We look bad at home to the delight of all the Dallas fans that pack MetLife.
@ Jets - W - We pull back the curtains hiding our trophy murals as we embarrass DollHands Darnold.
Bye week
@ Bears - L - Tough matchup, but we don't play well after a Bye.
vs Green bay - W - Oh, Aaron Rodgers, uses his latest injury excuse to explain YA poor performance. Overrated.
@ Philly - L - Fucking Philly. They wear their black uniforms to represent the thug fans. Ass-kicking.
vs Dolphins - W - We lick our wounds from last week's ass-kicking, but taking a week off in South Beach.
@ Redskins - W - Haskins is still fat.
vs Philly - W - Eli closes out his regular season career with a final home win against the ShitBirds.
lots of new players, some rookies starting  
markky : 6/2/2019 7:17 pm : link
limited practice time. i think this team is looking up, especially given the points we put on the board in the last quarter of last season.

i say 8-8, but we surprise people with a couple of performance and are clearly a team to watch in '20.
7-9

It isn't that we didn't get better per se, but this is a very inexperienced team. Actually reminds me of the Browns last year, talented but young. The other issue is if we have offensive line injuries this team is going to fall apart fast. To me our only chance at a winning season is if we are able to control the ball on offense with Saquon and our chain mover WRs. Past our first cb, not one has NFL experience. Bethea is going to be 35 once the season starts. Pair that with no pass rush and it doesn't exactly bode well. I'm seeing somewhere between 6-9 wins with this schedule.
its funny how every year some team jumps out of suckery  
Platos : 6/3/2019 11:54 am : link
but we here don't feel it could be the giants in 2019.

i think the changes we made could pay off dividends down the stretch.

I like the way that you are thinking, but you have too many games in the playoffs (3) not counting the SB. A team with a regular season record of 12-4 would be very rare circumstances to have to play in the Wildcard round. It could happen, but that would mean the teams with the #1 and #2 seed in the NFC did better than 12 wins. 12-4 usually means a #1 or #2 seed.

I have them at 11-5
Bears and Rams get the top 2 seeds

Oh, I didn't realize blind optimism was a registration requirement.

Everybody gather round and embrace groupthink!

It's the off-season. If the Giants are gonna suck, the season will suck regardless of whether or not we think they suck now. No point in not being optimistic. Unless you enjoy extending a miserable football season as long as you possibly can. It's not about group think, its about not being a curmudgeon.

Well, your comment was kinda dumb tbh. I'm all for optimism, but people who think the Giants will have a really rough season are not off base. There are plenty of reasons for optimism and it is the course I choose. Though there are many legitimate concerns about this team right now as well. Doesn't make the less of fans, and it is too early to say if they are wrong. And anyone can choose to be a curmudgeon if they want to.
To me a succesful season would be 8-8 with DJ showing he can

play. This team is being built to compete in 2020. Just show some improvement this year and your first round QB can play and its a good year imo.
Here we go  
Rong5611 : 6/3/2019 3:28 pm : link
@Dallas L 0-1 (Not winning this one)
vs Bills W 1-1 (Home Opener, something to prove)
@Tampa W 2-1 (NY South, we win)
vs Redwkins W 3-1 (LC's homecoming sees him toasted by Tate)
vs Vikings L 3-2 (Vikings are too much for us to handle)
@Pats L 3-3 (Does Eli produce some magic, yes, but not enough)
vs Cards W 4-3 (Giants bounce back)
@Lions W 5-3 (Gutty road win)
vs Cowboys L 5-4 (No Homefield Advantage)
@ Jets L - 5-5 (Jets are further along than us)
Bye week
@ Bears L 5-6 (Not happening again)
vs Green Bay W 6-6 (Big GB crowd, but Eli finds a way)
@ Philly l 6-7 (Not there yet)
vs Dolphins W 7-7 (Eli fighting for playoffs, if we are out, DJ starts)
@ Redskins W 7-8 (Eli fighting for playoffs, if we are out DJ starts)
vs Philly L 7-9 (DJ's 1st start (or up to his 3rd), a tough one against a brutal DL)
when has anyone predicted anything good from a team thats won

8 games in 2 years? never.

but it happens all the time.
Last two years  
arniefez : 6/3/2019 4:01 pm : link
They started 1-6 and 1-7. If they start 1-3 or 1-4 ands Jones becomes the starter 4-12 sounds about right. If start well 2-2 3-1 and Eli plays all year they have a little luck and good health maybe 9-7.
Wouldn't venture to guess on the entire season.  
Beezer : 6/3/2019 4:14 pm : link
Just too much occurs week-to-week to even try.

But if there's a way to steal that first game against the Cowboys (and I really have no idea right now if that's at all realistic), then I think winning the NEXT 3 games is not out of the realm of possibility.

Jesus, what if this team starts 4-0? Ha! I won't hold my breath, but! Hope springs eternal! LET'S GO!!!

I agree that the offseason should absolutely be about optimism. But telling people that they shouldn't even be on the site if they don't predict a good season is pretty immature.
Silly exercise, but why the fuck not?

@Dallas L 0-1 (bad loss, down by 3 TDs most of the game, score 10 meaningless points at the end to make it look closer)
vs Bills L 0-2 (Shutout at home)
@Tampa L 0-3 (Lose on a late fourth quarter turnover inside the 20-yard line)
vs Redskins L 0-4 (Jones' first start, Collins picks him off twice)
vs Vikings W 1-4 (Jones shakes off his rough debut and throws 3 TDs)
@Pats L 1-5 (Tight game, both teams score 35+, Pats win on a last second FG)
vs Cards W 2-5 (Murray has a field day, but so does Barkley)
@Lions L 2-6 (Rough game for Jones)
vs Cowboys L 2-7 (Better showing for Jones, defense is no where to be seen)
@ Jets L - 2-8 (The trend continues, defense is awful, Darnold throws 5 TDs. Jones throws 3.)
Bye week
@ Bears W 3-8 (Shocker, low scoring game that the Giants dominate)
vs Green Bay L 3-9 (Shootout, 30+ points each at the half, but the Giants can't keep up)
@ Philly W 4-9 (Fuck it, Jones does what Eli hasn't done in what seems forever, beats the Eagles)
vs Dolphins L 4-10 (Let down game after beating the Eagles, Rosen throws for 4 TDs)
@ Redskins W 5-10 (The Giants annual meaningless late season win again the Redskins, Haskins struggles)
vs Philly L 5-11 (Close game, a star player gets a devastating injury that affects 2020 the season)

Lots of highs, lots of lows.
Jones is up and down, but shows promise.
Barkley the same, up and down, less promise than rookie year.
The defense is awful, the reason they lose most of the games.

If youre picking 4, 5, 6, and maybe even 7 wins with this schedule youre saying were a worse team than last year. I guess thats possible but hard to see the logic behind that. Just the schedule would give us one or two wins even if were no better than last year. Maybe Im wrong about the significant talent upgrade on this team but youd have to show me where.


It's not that. Its last year GMEn beat 4 backup QB's.
6-10

The big year is 2020. Another year of drafting. Jones takes over the team. Big year in FA.

I agree, people have just as much right to be pessimistic as they are to be optimistic. I just find the constant pessimism to be exhausting and pointless.
