Even though they’ve won 2 Super Bowls with Eli Manning at the helm, the Giants have been somewhat of an up and down team during his tenure. You never quite know if they’re going to be a 12-win team or a 5-win team. They can be very unpredictable. Last season they were 6-10, and have missed the playoff four consecutive seasons.
But heading into the 2016 campaign, Eli Manning is very confident. It will be the first time he’s playing for someone not named Tom Coughlin, so there will be a honeymoon period, but the signal caller is predicting the playoffs for the G-Men.
Are the Giants of 2016 a playoff team?
“Yeah, definitely,” Manning said Wednesday morning at a Gatorade event at Kean University in Union, N.J. “We added some great players in the offseason. We were aggressive in free agency, but still have a lot of our core guys, especially on offense, back and I think we made some good moves on defense. We’re getting some guys back healthy. It’s just a matter of, hey, the talent is there, can we put it together, can we find a way to win the games and play our best football when we need to?”
