There is little question that the New York Giants appear to be going in a better direction than they were a year ago. The subtraction of former general manager Dave Gettleman was enough to propel Big Blue up in my rankings. New GM Joe Schoen and his confident first-year head coach Brian Daboll are attempting to create Buffalo south in East Rutherford, NJ. However, Ben Linsey and Pro Football Focus (@PFF) ranked all 32 NFL teams on ESPN+. Will the Giants be better in 2022? If they are, it may not be because of the players.
Long before his New York City radio career, Tiki Barber was rushing for touchdowns, while starring in the New York Giants backfield. Barber played 10 years for Big Blue. The second round draft pick out of Virginia rushed for well over 10,000 yards in the late '90's and early 2000's. Now he hosts the "Tiki & Tierney" show on WFAN out of New York City and has strong opinions about his old team and their current players.
The one person that may benefit the most out of the Joe Schoen/Brian Daboll era with the New York Giants is quarterback Daniel Jones. The young quarterback has had a rough road as he enters his fourth season with his third head coach. That isn't a great ratio of stability, for one that plays a position that is supposed lead your $4.85 billion franchise. In order to make the most of this new opportunity, Jones reached out to the guy that did pretty well with Brian Daboll at his side in Buffalo.

Here are 5 resolutions that the Giants owners have to abide by to turn this ship around.
