Nothing went right for the New York Giants in 2021. The team finished at the bottom of the NFC East division for the third time in the last five seasons and saw quarterback Daniel Jones go down with a neck injury. It's not a surprise to see them land near the bottom of ESPN's early 2022 power rankings.

The Giants check in at No. 27, which places them ahead of just two other NFC squads (Carolina Panthers & Detroit Lions). One positive that came out of a losing season was a complete staff overhaul as Joe Schoen was hired as the new general manager and Brian Daboll took over as head coach.

Both Schoen and Daboll come from a Buffalo Bills franchise that has made the playoffs in four of the last five seasons. The experience of turning an organization around will certainly come in handy during this rebuild. After all, the Giants have two top-10 picks to use in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.

The Giants are going to need as much help as they can get after failing to have a single player make the Pro Bowl for the second time in three years. They remain a team to keep an eye on in trade negotiations this offseason given the team aims to clear a ton of cap space.

A fresh start is definitely not the worst idea. New schemes on both sides of the football could give the Giants a leg up on what has become a shaky NFC East division. For now, the G-Men remain long shots to win Super Bowl 57 with odds set at +8500 (28th), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
