Whether the Giants win or lose on Sunday, their season could end pretty well. Even as the NFCEST East continued to crumble around them, they lost the ability to control their fortunes even after losing three games in a row.
So now the Giants will have to beat the Dallas Cowboys in the final match of the regular season at the MetLife Stadium on Sunday … and also get a little help from the Eagles, who will have to beat Washington on Sunday night to get the Big Blue back in the play blues.
If the Giants are eliminated on Sunday, it will be time for the Giants to look to 2021.
In front office fees, with coaching staff and rosters, big decisions are coming.
For some, Sunday will be the last game as members of the Giants organization.
We’ve identified 14 – who can be fired, cut or traded, and who are becoming free agents:
Fire, cut or trade
– GM Dave Getleman: Gatelman has written a lot about job security at the moment. His seat is certainly hot, though, it’s hard to predict how much credit co-owner John Mara will give the Giants a positive direction. Many of their problems are with its composition. There have been some difficulties that the Giants will probably try to reassign Gatelman to a different role, or he will retire. More likely, no decision has been made yet. On a black Monday it probably won’t be.
– OC Jason Garrett: Perhaps it’s no forgettable conclusion that Garrett is out after the season, but the Giants are the easiest culprit for the failure of the offense – and the lack of development of Daniel Jones – and Garrett. They have inherited a purposefully talented group of weapons but one of them (Evan Engram) is worse than 2019. The offensive line has been messed up for most of the season. Garrett has been very consistent, for a team that has struggled to score all year.
– WR Golden Tate: Giants were to go bankrupt in 2021 (savings of over 6 6 million) just before the start of the season. He cemented that with his poor play (35 catches, 388 yards, two touchdowns) and immaturity. Getleman’s worst signs.
– G. Will Hernandez: He was the Ironman of the Giants for 2.5 seasons, he never lost an instant. Now, that’s a backup that could only gather 10 snaps against Ravens last week. He is a starter-quality NFL player and may be able to defend the Giants. Some Value if they tried to trade him this ason fee ason nano.
– G. Kevin Zeitler: Or, if the giants could cut / trade Zeitler and save Hernandez and Rookie Shane Lemieux a lot of money (12 million) while making their debut on both guard spots. Zeitler, however, has been the Giants’ best, most consistent lineman for two years and shouldn’t be in the habit of getting rid of players like him.
– LB David Mayo: He was solid in 2019 but his weaknesses have been used this season when he is given any kind of significant time. The Giants saved 2.3 million by cutting it.
– TV Levin Toilolo: He’s basically an abusive lineman with a tight end, and more paid at the time. Cutting it would save about 3 3 million.
Impending free agents
– D.L. Leonard Williams: The Giants have a difficult decision to make with Williams. On the one hand, he has been arguably his best defensive player this season, a career-high 8.5. The sac is getting sacked and becoming a barrier for most of the season (except the last few of the games). The Giants gave up a lot to get it … but it will cost a lot. Rate rate for top-tier defensive linemen, probably at -2 18-22 million per season range. If the Giants bring Williams back, it could block his ability to re-sign anyone else on the list – or to chase players to other locations in need of this off-fee.
– DT Dalwin Tomlinson: This is the second part of the Giants’ difficult decision. Tomlinson is a leader, well respected in the locker room and one of the better run-stopping defensive tackles in the NFL. But the Giants will probably have to choose between keeping Tom Tomlinson or Williams. Tomlinson will be cheaper than Williams, but he is also a non-factor in the rush of passes. Interesting decisions ahead.
– RB Wayne Galman: Galman has shown what he can do this season when he really offers opportunities. Running the markets back to free agency isn’t exactly as strong these days, but it will be interesting to see if Gelman goes elsewhere or gets a constant touch, which is why Schwartz Barclays won’t be back in 2021.
– OLB Killer Facrel: He was fine before being injured, three sacks and one hurdle through 11 games. Maybe it will come back cheaper.
– OT Cam Fleming: Surprisingly he has started all 15 games, as the Giants have chosen not to turn to Rookie Matt Piert as a starter from now on. It has a slope. The Giants should probably move on, although it wouldn’t be right for him to go back … as a backup.
– RB Dion Lewis: It was somewhat disappointing as a backup running back this season, getting 108 rushing yards on just 28 carry, with 19 catches for 127 yards. The Giants could have done better (James White?) To catch this season later. It has been frustrating as a kick returner.
– RB Alfred Morris: P running Running te te surprisingly emerged as a contributor this season but its limitations have only recently come out. It would be somewhat surprising if he returned in 2021.
