Many Reasons Giants Won't Win Super Bowl

August 23rd 2011 15:51
From Eli Manning to Tom Coughlin, a banged-up defense and a thin receiving corps there are several reasons the New York Giants won't win the Super Bowl this season.

NO ELITE QUARTERBACK[I]---Eli Manning may have the confidence to believe he is an elite quarterback, but the stats and results prove otherwise. Eli threw a ridiculous 25 picks last season and led the team to ONE great season, the Super Bowl win over the Patriots. Other years the team has underachieved, and so has its quarterback.

Giant Disappointment?
Tom Coughlin

TOM COUGHLIN[I]---Similar to Eli Manning, Coughlin has had one great year, one good year but several mediocre ones. This is Coughlin's last stand and with one of his worst teams, talent-wise, things don't bode well for the coach. One thing in his and Eli's favor is they both can surprise when their backs are against the wall.

NO SAFETY IN NUMBERS[I]---The season hasn't even started yet and the G-Men have already lost four of six top cornerbacks. The latest victim was starting cornerback Terrell Thomas who is lost for the season with a torn ACL after colliding with teammate Jason Pierre-Paul while rushing the quarterback during the team's preseason blowout win over the Bears.

Thomas led the team with 101 tackles and five interceptions last season and added four forced fumbles and was enjoying a terrific camp. The team is already minus Bruce Johnson, Brian Witherspoon and first-round pick Prince Amukamara.

UNRECEPTIVE RECEIVERS[I]---Eli has put alot of pressure on himself to excel this season, especially considering the Giants lack of depth at the wideout lot and recent loss of tight end Kevin Boss, who signed with the Raiders.

The Eagles genius move of signing Steve Smith not only bolstered their offense, but it also cost Eli his top target. The Jets also guaranteed Plaxico Burress cash, costing the conservative Giants another option for the offense.

Unfortunately for Big Blue fans, they may indeed be quite blue this season.

I look at the Giants as one of those teams that when you expect them to do well they don't and when you expect them to stink they do well. I don't know if the Eagles are going to get the same consistency from Micheal Vick and the Giants did just miss the playoffs last year. I wouldn't count them out.
