Well, at least it’s over.
In a season filled with pitiful offensive performances, the Giants gave yet another one on Sunday in their 22-7 loss to the Washington Football Team. They had just 177 total yards, which remarkably wasn’t their worst performance of the season. Their quarterback, Jake Fromm, threw for just 103 yards.
It’s not surprising. It’s about all anyone could have expected. And it was a fitting end to one of their ugliest, most pathetic seasons they’ve ever had.
It’s almost unbelievable how bad this offense has been, especially over the past six weeks. Despite all the injuries and the fact that the Giants are down to their third-string quarterback, they are still putting NFL players on the field – at least theoretically. But for most of the past six weeks they haven’t been able to generate any offense at all.
Not that it was good back when Daniel Jones was healthy, but since then they’ve become unimaginably worse.
Fromm, making his second start, wasn’t much better than he was in his first, completing 15-of-31 passes for 103 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Saquon Barkley, putting the exclamation point on his terrible season, rushed for just 30 yards on 11 carries. Kenny Golladay, their $72 million receiver, had three catches for 22 yards and finished without a single touchdown pass all year long.
It was awful. It was also what the few fans who bothered to show up at the Meadowlands should have been expecting.
And it’s why there are changes coming to the Giants organization – possibly some very extensive changes, and possibly starting very soon.
While you’re waiting for that, here are a few more takeaways and final thoughts on the Giants’ finale. You’ll probably notice a very familiar theme:
– The Giants’ offensive line is a trainwreck and that’s really going to be a problem next season. Left tackle Andrew Thomas looks like the only keeper, which means…
