It is undeniable how bad the offense has been for the New York Giants. The one bright spot, a 23-10 win at Denver against the Broncos might have been a Week 6 blip, as the promptly went out and laid an egg against another NFC West opponent Seattle in Week 7.
The question is will the Giants have found a jar of magic beans during the bye week that will turn it around against a strong Rams defense.
Not a lot of those jars in the NFL.
Already through seven games, NFL watchers and fans have begun the crafting of an epitaph for their two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback.
Heck, at 1-6, fans and critics are already extrapolating the Giants schedule and potential wins and loss totals, to see where they might be in the draft to of course, maybe, draft a quarterback.
In New York, such funerals can be quick and sometimes premature.
Eli won’t have an easy time, regardless of the bye week, and against Aaron Donald and a Los Angeles Rams defense coordinator Wade Phillips finally has firing at the right time. Add in a depleted Giants receivers unit and a bad offensive line, and Manning won’t likely find much success in Week 9.
Not unlike the other six weeks they also posted losses.
