Brian Daboll doesn’t think Giants season is at a crossroads

The Giants were 6-1 when their October 30 game against the Seahawks kicked off and that game looks more and more like a turning point in their season with every passing week.

Seattle won that game and the Giants have now lost three of their last four games after Thursday’s 28-20 road loss to the Cowboys. That’s left them at 7-4 with a roster thinned out by injuries as they get set for three straight divisional games in the next three weeks.

Given the change in circumstances, Giants head coach Brian Daboll was asked if he feels his team is at a crossroads heading into next week’s game against the Commanders.

“No, I see it as getting ready to play Washington. . . . Yeah, just come back, do the same stuff we always to each week,” Daboll said in his postgame press conference. “Get ready to play a game. Take some rest. It’s been a tough 12 days. Obviously, we haven’t gotten the results we were looking for but I think we’ve got to just get a little bit of rest, mental recovery, physical recovery. Come back on Monday and get ready to play another division game. They don’t get any easier. Each week is tough, and we’ll stick with our practice, our preparation, all the things we need to do to try to go ahead and give us an opportunity to win a game. But, again, it’s the ebbs and flows of a season.”

The last couple of weeks have felt more like the Giants slamming back to Earth rather than ebbs and flows, but they’ll get plenty of chances to show that isn’t the case in the coming weeks.

  1. New York sports radio is going to be so good when the Jets and Giants both collapse and miss the playoffs

    If the Giants running game get’s shut down for the 3rd week in a row, it will end up being their 3rd loss in a row as Jones can’t carry this team. Barkley has roughly 60 yds combined the last 2 weeks and the run game doesn’t get any breaks in run defense with Washington.

    Giants have been a feel good cinderella story early in the season but all the lucky breaks they got are starting to even out. They just have to many holes and even if they lose the rest of their games, they still exceeded expectations.

  3. Crossroads implies you have something to lose. The giants are playing with house money. Despite their good record, the giants were never going to win the division and were never a true SB contender. As long as the GM and front office get good players going forward, this season should be filed under the category ‘culture builder’. Nothing more.

  4. This is the first year of what Giants fan knew would be a hard rebuilding process. I’ve seen all I needed to see, which is the improvements that the front office and coaching staff has made. I actually ENJOY watching Giants games again.

    They lost yesterday. No surprise to me. Dallas is a better team right now. Giants are WAY too injured. Not an excuse, just a fact. These are moral victories that are honestly better than nothing. At least I have hope.

  5. The giants are destroyed with injuries and are starting guys off other peoples practice squads. The roster was thin to begin with, so it’s just that much worse right now. Maybe they can get their starting RT, LG, and C back next game and get the run game going again.

  6. Both NY teams are average & next season the Giants should improve – as usual the Jest’s will regress.

  7. The Giants are on the right path, they gave the Cowboys yesterday with a depleted lineup all they could handle, the 4th down miscue was huge at that point in the game, Daboll knows what the team needs and will address it accordingly in time, 4 losses doesn’t put the season in question at all relative to the conference,
    A Cowboy’s fan

  8. The giant are trash. They have one special player and he is an injury prone pending free agent. And they will probably talk themselves into resigning Daniel Jones to a ridiculous contract. They are 3 years away from being 3 years away.
