The New York Giants won't win the NFC East until franchise stars quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley prove they can stay healthy. Barkley missed almost the entire 2020 NFL season, while Jones started only 14 games and missed time in two of those.
The Giants have been out of playoff consideration for some time now, though have already looked to the future by turning the team over to rookie quarterback Daniel Jones.
Dave Gettleman must know that his future employment as an NFL general manager depends on the success of Daniel Jones. He has a reputation of being overrated in Carolina and was fortunate to receive the opportunity in New York. Gettleman is unpopular in the harsh New York media and has made questionable free agent decisions in the past. He has been a staunch defender of Eli Manning despite the fact that the 2019 version of Manning cannot be considered a top 20 starter within the league.
