How the NY Giants won two Super Bowls, then became a total mess

When the NY Giants beat the Patriots for their second Super Bowl in five years, it felt like they were in a position to win in any situation. They weren't the best, but they knew when to turn it on. But before we knew it, everything fell apart. Plagued by injuries and salary cap hell, the Giants did all they could to stay afloat. They brought in some shiny new toys like Odell Beckham Jr., David Wilson and Landon Collins, in hopes of rejuvenating what was left of their Super Bowl core.
When that didn't work, they jettisoned the last of the old and used free agency to bring in some fresh blood. It worked, but only for a season, and they soon returned to the decline that - at this moment - has no end in sight.

Nice video but how can you do this without mentioning Reese's poor drafting even once? That was the crux. He missed on lower round players every year. Those are the players that help fill out a roster. Those are the players you can develop so you can be choosy about which free agents to keep. Except for his first draft, where I believe that George Young was whispering in his ear, Reese's drafting blew chunks. If the cupboard hadn't been bare, his free agent spree in 2016 would have been unnecessary.

Coughlin was forced out (huge mistake). Eli Manning is the most overrated quarterback in NFL history. The guy is a turnover machine. The only thing that exceeded Odell's talent was his ego (he's your problem now Cleveland). The NFL draft proved that this franchise is still in the hands of idiots. I have absolutely no confidence in this team's immediate future. Players come and players go. In the NFL, it's all about the front office.

As an honest and true Giants fan, this hurts to see visualized. The Giants for the better part of the last 7 seasons have been a poorly run and injury plagued franchise. I’m not quite sure if Pat Shurmur and Gettleman are the remedy, in fact i’d bet against it. But hey, 0-16 or 16-0 i’ll always bleed blue.

Just blame everything on Bieber :P Eli was hot for a while, but unlike Peyton, Eli is just not as strong a QB, when it comes to longevity. Eli's a 50m sprinter and Peyton runs marathons. Peyton can lead teams to the Super Bowl over a long period, make playoff contention, and still be relevant in a competitive division. I see Giants fans claiming Eli's one of the Greatest of All Time, he's good but compared to his brother he's not "great". The only reason why he's even in discussion is just because he was able to beat Tom Brady twice to hold down New England Patriots record. If you take that as a litmus test then Nick Foles should probably be considered 2nd Coming.

Collapse was inevitable when you have two back to back off- seasons with 20 players potentially being loss. The Giants played the short term gain gambit and they won 2 SBs. Many teams do that as well and fall short.

Outside of those two seasons, the Giants have no playoff wins since losing the 2000 Super Bowl. They only had one playoff victory throughout the 90s as well. If you could ever compact as much success as possible into such a condensed period, this would be it. Eli still finna break the all-time career INT record?

Yeah, but watch this rebuild that's happening right now. While I love and respect Eli, I think the team will be better off with Daniel Jones especially if management thinks Jones is ready to start. If we sadly witness Eli's departure after this season, the Giants are going to have a lot of free cap space. So next year, the Giants just have to sign Bobby Wagner to replace BJ Goodson. No biggie .... hahaha but in all honesty, I don't think the Seahawks can afford Wagner after paying Russell Wilson his extension. And in next year's draft, the Giants only have to get an elite--lengthy, 50/50, jumpball, redzone--type of receiver (Tee Higgins: Clemson, Laviska Shenault Jr.: Colorado, CeeDee Lamb: Oklahoma, Collin Johnson: Texas). They also need to draft an elite right tackle in next year's draft (Solomon Thomas: Georgia, Walker Little: Stanford, Mekhi Becton: Louisville). Basically, the defense is pretty set once they get Bobby Wagner to play ILB alongside Alec Ogletree. The secondary is absolutely gorgeous, the lineman are "hogmollies" and fierce (everybody thinks Dexter Lawrence is going to be playing nose tackle to help everyone else in getting to the QB, but honestly LOOK OUT for the sacks and the overall numbers he's gonna put up, playing the end in this "release the hounds"--styled defense), and the edge rushing unit is going to surprise you this year. Lorenzo Carter is going to improve as he continues to start games in his second year, Markus Golden will thrive after fitting perfectly back into James Bettcher's defensive scheme, and I expect Oshane Ximines (another athletic 3rd round edge rusher like Carter) to also excel with the Giants during his rookie season. These rushers are all relentless and skilled in terms of getting to the quarterback, and with the help of this reinforced and monstrous looking D-line, they're going to be successful at bringing down the quarterback this season. The offense will need to add more height and skill to the wide receiver position along with more depth on the offensive line. I still think the Giants should've drafted EDGE Josh Allen at 6, OT Andre Dillard at 17, and still CB Deandre Baker or DL Dexter Lawrence if available at 30, WR Hakeem Butler at 95, still DB Julian Love at 108, and the rest of the selections I would keep as well. Because I like next year's QB draft class a lot more than Daniel Jones. I still like Jones, and I think he fits perfectly with the Giants, but I think we're going to see more talented QBs next year in all honesty. Especially because I am convinced that Eli can play another year, or even two. Cut Kareem Martin and throw any free money at Bobby Wagner. Do whatever it takes to get the best talent in next year's draft who would become the next franchise quarterback, because the Giants would only need to add depth otherwise. And BOOM! That would've been a dynasty kind of team if they went that route....... Offense Starting Lineup: WR: Sterling Shepard, DARIUS SLAYTON Slot: GOLDEN TATE, Corey Coleman WR: HAKEEM BUTLER*, REGGIE WHITE JR. LT: Nate Soldier LG: Will Hernandez*, DRAFT C: Jon Halapio, Spencer Pulley RG: KEVIN ZEITLER*, DRAFT RT: ANDRE DILLARD*, Chad Wheeler TE: Evan Engram*, Rhett Ellison QB: DRAFT RB: Saquon Barkley* DT: BJ Hill, RJ McIntosh NT: Dalvin Tomlinson, DEXTER LAWRENCE DE: DEXTER LAWRENCE*, CHRIS SLAYTON EDGE: JOSH ALLEN* ILB: Alec Ogletree, RYAN CONNELLY ILB: BOBBY WAGNER* EDGE: Lorenzo Carter, DRAFT CB: Janoris Jenkins*, DRAFT SS: JABRILL PEPPERS* FS: ANTOINE BETHEA, JULIAN LOVE CB: JULIAN LOVE, Sam Beal NB: Grant Haley, COREY BALLENTINE ...... but one can only dream for perfection. STILL I believe the Giants will make a quick return to the winner's circle and possibly the podium if they get Wagner and work on the offense in the draft next year in the way I'm suggesting. You heard it here, first!

However, after that, no playoffs for 4 or 5 years & losing records”. Everyone is signing on to that.

You need to do the 2001/02 Mets. Coming off their WS appearance in 2000, they missed the playoffs in '01 before creating the infamous Mets Super Team of 2002 which had a losing record finishing fifth in the NL East. There is also the collapse of the Mets after the 2006 playoff run from which they did not recover until lightening struck in 2015.

Patriot Killers they are, but both SB XLII and XLVI were both a fluke. They were lucky, but this is the hard cost for dealing with the devil as salary caps rises and Eli was never an elite QB in the first place. What really made the G-Men burn to ashes is losing their best reciever, OBJ. Enjoy the hell and stress rebuilding the team as Eli's retirement is on the way. They had it all, but it is better off rather to be forgettable moments that wished it could've been avoided. At the end of the day, its all business, never personal as judgements and sacrifices had to be made for around all professional of sports.

@Durran Osman I hear you but Reese was just a mistake to promote to GM hes a real good scout & actually 07 was the best drafts they put together & it was Gettleman who was head of player personnel so he made the choices on who they targetted & following Accorsi model... Gettleman should've been promoted to GM bc Reese kept Ross around as player personel & we saw how that went for 8 years of poor drafts ...

Reese draft key players who contributed to the 07 run. Reese had bad drafts later on. The one thing Reese was good at was not overpaying players during extensions. However, not keeping Linval really hurt him. Reese is a mixed bag.

They remind me of the late 90's to early 00's Florida Marlins. The Marlins had two Cinderella years no one expected and ended up winning the World Series both times. But during the intervening years and especially the years after, they really did not look like the same teams. They were also forced to unload some talent due to cap hits i believe. But it all cannot be blamed on that. Just terrible mismanagement for the Marlins. Same thing has been going on for the NY Giants. Just look are the 2019 offseason. Traded Odell and drafting weirdly. Not a great look for a team desperate for new star players.

Giants are a classy team but ‘07 Giants at 10-6 regular season got very lucky on Favre interception to go play undefeated Pats & ‘11 Giants were 9-7 in the regular season. Both Super Bowls were great accomplishments but Giants never really reigned as champions. Feel good story that died but never a truly great team since Parcells left. Not a Pats fan but they’ve beat my team too many times & are the only real dynasty in NFL since 92-95 Cowboys & have wrecked the NFL for nearly 20 years.

This is why the Salary Cap and Free Agency were put into place; to prevent teams from easily forming dynasties. This is why the 49ers and Cowboys couldn't sustain their success. This goes to show that even though the Giants pieced it together, twice, to defeat the Patriots in the SB, the Patriots still come out with the last laugh. Since the 2011 SB loss, the Patriots have won 3x SBs and they've done it while managing their salary cap, losing key players, but replacing them with effective veterans and/or rookies. For the past 18 years, the Patriots have maintained their level of success and status as a dynasty, simply because they refuse to overpay. Even this off-season, most people were upset that they let Trey Flowers walk. But then they replaced him with someone else and will go on to win another 10+ games this season, go to the playoffs, more than likely get a first-round bye, and go from there. And the Patriots are also winning with undrafted players, late round picks, and "washed up" veterans
