Pre-Season Rankings Showing Giants No LoveESPN is running their annual Ultimate NFL Rankings this week. The Giants check in at #14, which would put them on the fringe of the playoff picture.
These guys are experts...?
The Cowboys are getting all the play in the NFC East this preseason. No one is taking the other three teams seriously. I must be missing something.
The Cowboys ended their season the same way the Giants did last year by getting squashed in Minnesota. The difference was the Cowboys had everything to play for and the Giants didn't.
The Cowboys went into the Divisional Playoff game vs the Vikings on a high. The Giants barely had enough healthy bodies to play the game.
This off-season, the Giants became a better team by virtue of just having key players who were injured last year, regain their health. Plus they added veteran secondary players and shored up their defensive line rotation.
The Cowboys, outside of drafting Dez Bryant, haven't really upgraded anywhere. They cut Flozell Adams and replaced him with Alex Barron. That's basically it.
I'm beginning to discount ESPN as a credible sports source. I've been watching football for 45 years and there is nothing wrong with my eyesight....
I prefer NFL Network these days.
