Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Without Barkley, the offense’s engine has been stripped. For the last three seasons, this was a team built around maximizing a superstar who plays one of the most dangerous positions in the sport; a wild idea at its core, especially when you consider that they weren’t able to do it after spending a first-round pick, a second-round pick, trading for another first-round pick and inking one of the largest offensive line contracts in the history of free agency. The running back was supposed to be the fulcrum on which everything pivoted; a channel of offensive production that would take some of the pressure off the developing quarterback, a source of toughness to negate the developing offensive line, a few extra catches a game to negate the developing receiving corps and create some medium range coverage issues that would, again, help the quarterback.
Now that he’s gone, the only thing that’s left is everything else the general manager has been working on. Will the Giants like what they see? Will they be able to win without him?
