The New York Giants are the league’s longest standing team in the northwest of the United States after being awarded an NFL franchise in 1925, and were one of the five original teams established throughout that time.
Although it may not seem like it, the Giants are the third most successful franchise in the NFL in terms of NFL championships (pre Super Bowl) and Super Bowl as they have eight, as they are only behind Green Bay Packers who are the most successful franchise with 13 NFL championships / Super Bowls and second place Chicago Bears who have nine.
In the infancy of the NFL, the league struggled to gain any relevant media attention, especially when it came to the New York Giants as they couldn’t attract mass crowds to their games, but that all changed when they hosted the Chicago Bears. The Bears largely thanks to new recruit Red Grange attracted 70,000 to the game which in turn gave the league the media attention it so desperately wanted in the city.
While nothing significant happened to the Giants a year later, by 1927 just in their third season in the NFL the Giants won their first ever piece of trophy led by defensive tackle Steve Owen, who would then coach the side three years later.
By 1930 Owen became head coach of the Giants and lasted 23 seasons at the helm coaching the team to 153 wins, 108 losses and 17 ties. The mid 30s could be seen as one of the most successful eras of the Giants as they won eight Eastern Division in 14 seasons as well as claiming two NFL championships between 1934 and 1938.
The reason why the Giants were so dominant between the 30s and 40s were largely thanks to fullback Ken Strong and linebacker Mel Hein, who did not miss a game game for 15 consecutive seasons as well as becoming the league’s most valuable player in 1938.
Despite being a dominant side in the 40s the Giants made four NFL championship games but couldn’t get their hands on the big prize. The Giants ended an 18 year drought when they claimed the 1956 NFL Championship by defeating the Chicago Bears under coach Jaime Lee Howell.
The NFL championship victory in 1956 kicked off another successful period for the Giants as between 1956 and 1963 the team who was led by coach Allie Sherman won six NFL eastern titles throughout eight years.
This was largely thanks to future Hall of Famers Y. A. Tittle, Frank Gifford, Roosevelt Brown, Emlen Tunnell and Andy Robustelli, who all sparked the Giants to the championship game in 1963, however, they couldn’t get the job done.
The Giants were in the wilderness for the next 20 odd years, but that started to change when Bill Parcells, who coached the team from 1979-1990 led them out of the dark days. By 1986, Parcells did exactly that when they finished first in the NFC East standings with a 14-2 record and defeated San Francisco in the divisional playoffs.
They walked right over the Washington Football Team (known as Washington Redskins at the time) in the NFC championship game keeping them scoreless as they won the game 17-0, to make it to their first Super Bowl appearance. The occasion on the NFL’s biggest stage didn’t seem to bother them as they claimed their first Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXI.
Four years later the Giants repeated their efforts when Parcells coached the Giants to their second Super Bowl victory after ending the regular season with a 13-3 record, as they defeated Buffalo Bills by one point in the XXV edition. This time the Giants were a regular in the postseason as they made the playoffs in 1993 and 1997 but couldn’t replicate their form which saw two Super Bowls in four years.
The Giants had to wait another 10 years before they were on the big stage again and had a golden opportunity to win their third Super Bowl when they met the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV however, they went down 34-7.
In 2004 the Giants entered a trade with San Diego Chargers as they received Eli Manning with pick #1. Manning would prove to be an integral component to the squad as he spent 14 years at the Giants from 2004-2019, making 236 appearances, completing 4895 passes, making 57023 passing yards, and providing 366 passing touchdowns throughout his career.
Four years after making his Giants debut, Manning would prove to be the spark the Giants needed in 2007. The Giants finished second in the NFC East with a 10-6 record, earning themselves a wildcard playoff spot which they made no mistake in when they knocked off Tampa Bay by 10 points.
They just got over the line against the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round beating them by four points, they then faced a battle in the NFC Championship game as they oversaw Green Bay Packers by three points in overtime.
The Giants were then in their first Super Bowl since 2000 when they met the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. It took a stunning display from Manning as he sparked the Giants to a three point win defeating the Patriots 17-14, as they claimed their third Super Bowl, with Manning being named the Super Bowl MVP.
Manning and the Giants then repeated their efforts four years later, in 2011, when they met the same opponent in Super Bowl XLVI. Manning was once again the MVP as the Giants defeated the Patriots 21-17 to claim their fourth Super Bowl.
That would turn out to be the last time the Giants were a part of the NFL’s showpiece event as they have only managed one postseason appearance since when they made it to the wildcard playoffs in 2016, but fell to Green Bay Packers.
The next few years the Giants would finish last in NFC East in 2017 and 2018, while they improved their position in 2019 when they finished third they still had less wins than the year previously.
If you are a fan of the New York Giants, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the New York Giants have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the New York Giants:
Another coach that has learned his craft under Bill Belichick at the Patriots, Joe Judge was signed by the New York Giants in January of 2020. After a 4-12 season in 2019, Judge will be taking over a struggling Giants franchise and will not be favoured by the fixture with three of his first five games being played away from home. Previously a special teams coordinator at the Patriots, Judge will be set the task of improving on the 23rd ranked offence and 25th ranked defence in the league.
A tough position, made tougher by the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on professional sport. Judge should be under no pressure in his rookie season as a head coach, due to the state of the team he has taken over as well as the state of the world around him.
Taken with the second pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saquon Barkley didn’t waste any time exploding onto the scene in New York. In his rookie year, Barkley led the entire league in scrimmage yards with 2028 as well as scoring 15 touchdowns.
One of the more astonishing rookie seasons in NFL history, Barkley broke multiple rookie records and earned several rookie of the year awards. In his sophomore season, Barkly became the only running back in Giants’ history to have 1,000 rushing yards in their first two seasons, despite missing three games with an ankle injury.
Coming into 2020 with a clean bill of health, Barkley will be looking to string a full season together, and continue to pile up the scrimmage yards as one of the premiere dual threat running backs in the league, and certainly the Giants best avenue to the end zone.
In the 2019 first round pick out of Clemson, Dexter Lawrence had an impressive first season with the Giants. Despite being the fourth defensive linesman selected in his draft class, Lawrence finished his rookie season with a higher grade than any of his counterparts.
Lawrence finished the 2019 season with 38 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, three tackles for loss and nine quarterback hits as a rookie. Last year, the Giants put out the 25th ranked league defence, and will be relying on players such as Lawrence, Leonard Williams and Austin Johnston to see improvement in 2020. If Lawrence can have a solid level of improvement on his rookie numbers, both he and the Giants will be a more formidable opposition this season.
The 2019 NFL could be seen as an improvement on where they finished, but in terms of their win-loss record it wasn’t. In 2018 the New York Giants finished in last place on the NFC East standings with five wins, whereas in 2019 they finished in third place with four wins.
Overall the New York Giants finished the season with a 7-9-0 against the spread record placing them as the 21st best team in the overall NFL standings as well being the second best team in the NFC East Division.
At home they dropped to being the 27th best team in the NFL with a 2-6-0 record as well as finishing last in that area in the NFC East (although they shared the same record as the Washington Football Team).
They had a much better against the spread record when they were the away team, as they finished the 2019 season with a 5-3-0 record, placing them as the 12th best team in the NFL and ranking themselves as the number one team in the NFC East.
When looking at the over / under record the Giants were much better in all three facets as they were ranked fourth in the NFL with a 10-6-0 overall record and being the number one team in the NFC East.
They were in the top 20 when they were the home team placing them 17th in the NFL with a 4-4-0 record and being the third best in the NFC East. When they were on the road, they were the second best team in the league with a 6-2-0 record and they were also the second best team in their division.
The Giants began their 2019 campaign with +14000 odds a day before their season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 8. By September 9 the Giants odds dropped to +10000 on game day however, back-to-back losses from the Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills in the first two weeks of the season didn’t impact the odds makers as by September 17 they were still +10000.
However, three days before their clash with Tampa Bay they were valued at +35000 on September 20, but by September 23 on the day of the Tampa Bay game their value dropped down to +10333.
The Giants then won their next two matches against Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Washington Football Team and by October 1 they were at their shortest odds for the season as they were marked at +8000.
However, from October 7 to November 11 the Giants suffered a six game losing streak before the bye as they were defeated by Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets which saw their odds skyrocket to +91667 on November 12.
It didn’t get any better for the Giants after their break, as they suffered a three game losing streak against Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles as they ended their season with a +75000 odds on November 29. The Giants responded when they won their next two games against Miami Dolphins and Washington but ended their season with a loss to Philadelphia Eagles on December 30.
