7 Most Disappointing Seasons in New York Giants History
Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY
The New York Giants have had quite a few seasons that left their fans despondent.

There is no denying that the 2013 New York Giants, who enter Week 17 with a 6-9 record and long eliminated from playoff contention, have had a bad 2013 season.

But has it been disappointing?

A bad win-loss record is not a requirement for a disappointing season.  High expectations, however, are necessary for a team to put up a disappointing campaign. Sometimes visions of success can be conjured up prior to the season, or they can suddenly sprout up after an encouraging start.

Either way, in order for a season to let down a team and its fans, there must be somewhere to fall.

The separation between expectations and reality by the end of the season defines the level of disappointment. Also, events in the seasons preceding and following the year of failed expectations shape the depth of the disappointment. This last measuring stick can only be truly accurate years later, through the lens of historical context.

With the definition of a disappointing season firmly defined, let’s count down the top seven all time for Big Blue. Before we hit the official list, there are a few seasons that didn’t quite make the cut, but deserve to be noted.
