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 Commanders (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.
Despite starting the 2020 season with zero wins from their opening five games, the New York Giants remained in the hunt for a playoff spot up until Week 17 of the NFL regular season.
After their 0-5 start, the Giants won five of their next seven games to improve to 5-7. Their most notable victory came in Week 13 as New York defeated the Seahawks in Seattle for the first time since 2010. The win also ensured that the Giants would improve on their previous seasons 4-12 record.
Although they beat the Cowboys in Week 17 of the regular season, the 6-10 Giants failed to win the NFC East or make the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year, as New York needed Philadelphia to defeat Washington for them to advance. As a result of their Week 17 victory over the Eagles, Washington (7-9) became only the third team in NFL history to win a division with a losing record.
2021 was a rebuilding year for the Giants as questions keep rolling in about Daniel Jones’s ability to lead this team and Saquan Barkleys ability to stay healthy. 2022 will be a big year for the New York Football Giants.
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 2022-23 season. Do the New York Giants have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?
Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the New York Giants:
Brian Daboll is the brand new head coach of the New York Giants. He was previously the offensive coordinator for Josh Allen in the Buffalo Bills for the past three seasons. This will be his first head coaching opportunity in the National Football League.
He certainly has his work cut out for him as he is taking over a New York Giants team that is surrounded by quarterback controversy and players reportedly wanting out of New York City as well. He certainly has a winning pedigree as he spent a lot of time with the New England Patriots during their Super Bowl dynasty.
The New York Giants offense will be led by Daniel Jones and despite tons of questions over the off-season whether they bring in a new quarterback, this team is focused and locked in on him as the quarterback of the future in New York.
Like usual their success this season will depend on the health of their top running backs Saquon Barkley as he has not played a full season in some time now. They should have Darius Slayton and Kadarius Toney at the wide receiver spots as viable options for Jones to throw the football to, as well as a third in Kenny Golladay.
The New York Giants defense is going to be led by Dexter Lawrence at the nose tackle position and rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux although he is expecting to miss some time after an injury in the preseason. Adore Jackson, Julian Love, and Xavier McKinney make up a formidable threesome in the defensive backfield that could cause a lot of chaos for opposing quarterbacks.
While Blake Martinez, Carter Coughlin, and Tae Crowder will play the three linebacker spots. Leonard Williams and Azeez Ojulari will make up the defensive pairing for the Giants, as they will look to improve upon the 24.5 points they gave up per game last season.
Last season the New York Giants finished with a record of 4-13 and they are expected to be better then they were during the 2021-22 season. Oddsmakers expect the New York Giants to win around seven of their seventeen games during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
The odds for betting the over on the win line are currently (+105) which makes them a valuable bet, while the odds for the betting the under on the win line are currently (-125) heading into the 2022-23 season.
Their odds to win their division are currently (+800) but things are always wide open in the NFC East these days, while their odds to bring home a Conference Championship are (+6000) at the moment.
Their current odds to win the Super Bowl and bring home the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season are listed at (+13000) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season. This puts them as one of the longshots to bring home the title this season.
They are currently the favorites in four of their seventeen games this season. As usual they are expected to win more games on their home field instead of having more wins on the road. They come into the 2022-23 National Football League season expected to be two possession favorites in zero of their seventeen games and two possession underdogs in zero of their seventeen games this season.
It’ll be interesting to see how this team performs after all the changes during the offseason and while playing in such a top heavy conference like the NFC. Due to the massive amount of parity in the National Football League, you never truly know what is going to happen from season to season. But all signs point towards the New York Giants being on the less successful end of the spectrum during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
