  • Biggest Disappointment?

    Which player was the biggest disappointment to you this year?



    I can think of a few, like Webster, and Tuck, but I'm gonna' have to say Hakeem Nicks. And I know it's not entirely his fault because of the injuries, but this guy was in the conversation of top 5 WR in the league coming into the year. Especially after the monster postseason he had last year. And for him to only have 3 TD's and 600 yards receiving is a huge disappointment, and a large reason why our offense looked so inept at times. Maybe it's just because he's my favorite player on the team, but I expected a big year for him, and to see him fall drastically short is definitely a disappointment.

    It's sad. Nicks tried and probably injured himself worse for his trying. Ahmad also. What a year for Giants injuries.

      Tuck.

      I gave him the benefit of the doubt last season because he was injured. I just don't think he no longer has what it takes to compete at a high level like he once did.

      With Nicks, I am extending the benefit of the doubt. He better be making those crazy catches, possess that same speed he had a season ago.
      For a Giant fan that I personally knew: My mom. May she smile and be delighted whenever her favorite player - Victor Cruz - scores a touchdown and does his salsa dance.

      Thank you mom for everything! Let's Go Giants!

        Offense: Nicks

        Defense: KP

        We are a very different team when these men are playing, and at a high level.

          Before anyone starts going crazy, just solely based on their importance & status on our team, I'm going to say Nicks & JPP.....
          Besides Eli, I think all can agree Nicks on offense & JPP have been our biggest weapons....both were respected around the league, came off huge years & didn't even come close to living up to the expectations.....
          We can argue injuries for nicks, but what can someone tell me other than this double team BS for JPP???
          Every pass rusher in the league faces the same hurdles........Obviously plenty of GMen had off years, but Idk if any went from arguably the best at their position around the league to 41th (stats).....there's all kinds of cats that finished ahead of JPP in sacks, & he's tied with Derrick Morgan, the guy we made fun of for supposedly being the better DE in the 2010 draft...

                    The coaching staff for yet another 6-2 start and another collapse. The fact that this happens every single year and they can't figure out the problem and it culminated in going from locking up the division to completely out of the playoffs in the span of 3 weeks.

                      It's partly on him (he has to study what other elite DEs do to evolve their games and develop new techniques to compensate for being doubled and tripled); it's partly on the coaches for not using him as a joker and lining him up all over the place as well as for not leading him by the nose as far as study and evolving his game.

                        Bradshaw. Don't know why but the guy just can't seem to see the hole alot of times. Offensive line would be second.

                          Can't really blame Nicks. He was hurt, but gave us his all. He pretty much put his body on the line to get us that Tampa Bay win, and that's when he added the knee injury to the list and was never the same after that. I have full confidence that will be back to form next year.

                            I really thought Osi was going to have a great year. He is healthy and a free agent at the end of the season. I thought he would have more production.
