Usually when an NFL team compiles a lengthy injury list, it means they are in danger of reaching a breaking point. The Giants, however, have had a different experience through the early stages of the 2022 season.
The injuries started to mount for coach Brian Daboll’s team in training camp and they have kept on coming through the first two regular-season games. Instead of breaking, the Giants have bonded and discovered that their roster just might have more depth than even they originally anticipated.

| Yes they are...Can they lose..Very possible..Are they the better team..NO !!!!!..
Let's go back many years ago..Team USA hockey,playing the pro players from Russia..We were so badly over matched..Did that matter to any to our college players? HELL NO !!! Thay played like it was going to be their
last day on earth if they lost..They had some great coaching also.
So,are the Giants going to lose?? HELL NO !! Good players and great coaching will win..By the way,the Kowboys coach sucks..He will probably be fired half way into the year..Sean Payton is waiting for this gig big time..

That’s an incomplete way of evaluating the data.
The better assessment of the pick and the player is whether they were extended at all in the NFL.
Your line of thinking assumes the Giants made good decisions on who to keep or let go of, and the results in W/L don’t necessarily support that.
From that same period 8 additional players had a PFF wAV of 30+ plus, which at a minimum shows they’ve been every day players: Tomlinson, Flowers, Collins, Richburg, Kennard, Pugh, Hankins, Amukamara.
And just to be crystal clear, I’m not saying the Giants should have kept any of them. Just simply extend/not extend isn’t a very useful measure on its own.
