2017 Record: 3-13; Finished: 4th in the NFC East

General Manager: Dave Gettleman (1st Year), Head Coach: Pat Shurmur (1st Year), Offensive Coordinator: Mike Shula (1st Year), Defensive Coordinator: James Bettcher (1st Year)

Offense Rankings: No. 21 Overall, No. 31 Scoring, No. 19 Passing, No. 26 Rushing

Two years ago, the Giants made the playoffs despite a putrid offense, one which was exposed last season when they needed to hold their own. After finishing seventh in 2015 in passing, New York’s aerial attack has declined over the past two seasons. Meanwhile, the run game hasn’t finished higher than 19th in the NFL since 2012, a stretch that has seen the G-Men make the playoffs just once. They still need help along the interior of the O-line and in the backfield.

Defense Rankings: No. 31 Overall, No. 27 Scoring, No. 31 Passing, No. 27 Rushing

The biggest reason difference between the 2016 Giants (11 wins) and the 2017 Giants (13 losses) was the defense. They went from being one of the toughest to score (second) or run on (third) to one of the easiest to move the ball on in the entire league. Both the run and pass defense needs to be addressed, especially in the front seven, with defensive end and outside linebacker major needs.
