We're halfway through the New York Giants' season, and they are sitting at a disappointing 2-6. Thanks to an 0-6 start, it looked like the Giants might never win a game. After back-to-back wins, however, the team and its fans seem to be a bit more optimistic.
New York has struggled through the first eight weeks of the season due to injuries, poor decision-making and just overall bad performances. This team still needs to improve on many things if it wants to stay competitive.
The Giants and Eli Manning, though, have always shown that when they get on a roll, they are almost impossible to beat. With two straight wins and a few lousy NFC East opponents, the Giants have fans wondering if they can somehow compete for the division crown.
There’s been some good, a lot of bad and a ton of criticism, but with eight games to go, New York is still alive.
