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.

    Jerry Reese nickel and dimed the offensive line and couldn't hit a good linebacker in the draft with a two by four. Then got scared off drafting Laremy Tunsil for Eli Apple who couldn't handle playing in New York. It is indeed a mess.

    @SB nation it’s hilarious how you failed to mention Elisha Pay as a hamper let alone his horrible play as well! Eli Manning based on NFL contracts alone will be paid the most money ever over his career. Stats wise he rarely was Elite and he was never the reason we won any of our two super bowls he played well enough to not lose while making one of the greatest catch as his only really contribution in super bowl play. His pay and lack of carry hampered the Giants big time as well.

    A well done and accurate video on my GIANTS... One thing that the makers of this video forgot to mention was that the Giants first round pick in the 2012 draft (three months after the 2nd SB win over the Pats) running back David Wilson was forced to retire during training camp 2014... Cause was Spinal Stenosis... He had an excellent rookie season but only played in 5 games in 2013 and was diagnosed following week 5... This set the Giants back at least five years...

    Anyone who thinks he'll I deserved that first MVP of the Super Bowl is mentally retarded. I grew up an Eagles fan. And I moved to Boston and the winter of 2000 so I was there for Brady beginning and at that time Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb we're running Philadelphia and I hate both of them. So I became a Patriots fan. Now when the fat man and that bum McNabb were out you know I I I no cared about the Eagles again but I mean the Patriots fan first and an Eagles fan second even though when they met in the Super Bowl the second time I mean the first time was easy I cheer for the Patriots cuz f*** Donovan McNabb and f*** Andy Reid. Even though doing that are I still kinds of you know the Eagles were my second team because Brian Dawkins Brian Westbrook Jimmie Johnson and his defense but still first Super Bowl was Patriots all the way in the second Super Bowl I had to go with the Eagles and cuz they had they had no Super Bowl wins so that all worked out but I never got over that first Patriots lost in the Super Bowl I mean I'm not going to be like the Raiders and cry that there was four holding penalties on the helmet catch two of them blatant should have been called because it seem like somebody sold their soul because let's not forget about Asante Samuel's drop of an interception right in his hand everything was just going against them but hating the Giants more than anything cuz of their rivalry with the Eagles and then them spoiling the perfect season that was God awful. But I made sure I kissed votes for the MVP for Justin Tuck just in case they won because he deserve that mvp

    That Giants team in 2011 was probably the worst team to ever win a Superbowl. They just played in an awful division and went on an insane run at the best possible time. Not to mention got pretty lucky in having to play the title game in San Fran opposed to New Orleans, where they probably would've lost by 3 scores. In retrospect, that 6 game run has given Eli Manning (a quality but mostly average QB) the opportunity to write his ticket and run the Giants franchise into the ground. If they did the smart thing like what the Ravens did with Flacco, the Giants might've already had a young QB to go with OBJ and possibly even still been able to draft Barkley. Instead they chose their aging QB over their diva but talented WR, and are likely to waste the prime years of Barkley. 2 titles are awesome. Lots of fanbases would take that. But the last 5 years were awful and the next 5 might not be much better.

    There two Super Bowl wins were flukes. First time they won on a wild card and the second time they won going 9-7. Every other time Eli went to the playoffs, outside his superbowl winning seasons, he went one-and-done. Like Flacco, he caught fire at the right time.

    The fix was in hard on both of these Superbowl , the second one was beyond blatant given the bullshit intentional grounding/safety call on the Patriots first drive where tom Brady's pass not only passed the line of scrimmage but hit wide reciever deion branch in the leg, dually making this pass a regular incompletion that should not have been called any kind of penalty

    Unfortunatly Nicks and Cruz had devastating injuries and were never the same, in the 2011 season for the majority it was the passing game and JPP on defense the Giants got healthy and hot at the right time, Giants oline was old in 2011 and Reese didnt draft any lineman, Tuck and Osi were old and Reese didnt get anyone to take pressure off JPP as a matter of fact I remember I wanted the Giants to get a pass rusher in the 1st round of the 2012 draft and people thought I was crazy instead they took David Wilson who was flashy but couldn't block or hold onto a football. The 2012 team actually went 10-6 btw. Giants ownership threw Coughlin under the bus, it should have been a complete rebuild. Reese never addressed the Oline ever.
