Saquon Barkley’s Absence Looms Large for Giants
With the failure to come to terms on a new contract, superstar running back Saquon Barkley is not present as the New York Giants begin training camp. The looming question is when, or if, he will return to the team.
Giants in Trouble Without Barkley
Without Barkley, the Giants are in a difficult position. He is by far their most significant offensive weapon. Analyst Jason McIntyre has even gone as far as to predict that the Giants will start the season 1-5 without the two-time Pro Bowler.
Surprising Season for Giants
The Giants defied expectations last season. They won six of their first seven games and then pulled off an upset against the 13-4 Minnesota Vikings in the wild-card round of the playoffs. It was an impressive feat, as they managed to be more than the sum of their parts.
Unfortunately, the Giants are now in a position where they have a shortage of reliable playmakers. Without Barkley, it will be a challenge for the team to repeat their success from last season.
The Giants’ outlook for the upcoming season is uncertain due to the absence of Saquon Barkley. With the two-time Pro Bowler out of the picture, the team will have to find a way to make up for his production. It will be a difficult task, as the Giants have a lack of viable playmakers on their roster.
