When will the NFL team New York Giants appear in a Super Bowl again?
The New York Giants have been successful at winning Super Bowl games. They have been in five of those games, winning four of them. The first one they appeared in was Super Bowl XXI in 1987. They won that game. Their head coach was Bill Parcells. Their quarterback was Phil Simms. The featured running back was Joe Morris.
The Giants won their second Super Bowl in 1991. In that game, Scott Norwood of the Buffalo Bills missed a 47-yard field goal with final seconds remaining. The final score was 20-19. The head coach was Bill Parcells, and Phil Simms was the quarterback. The featured running backs were Ottis Anderson.
Ten years later in 2001, the Giants lost a Super Bowl game to the Baltimore Ravens, which won many games due to their stifling defense. The quarterback for the Giants was Kerry Collins. Tiki Barber was the featured running back. They were led by head coach Jim Fassel.
The Giants won Super Bowl games in both 2008 and 2012 against the New England Patriots. In those two games, Tom Coughlin was the head coach. He was the wide receivers coach for Bill Parcells from 1988 to 1990. Eli Manning was the quarterback for those two games. For the 2007 regular season, Brandon Jacobs was the featured running back. In the 2011 regular season, Ahmad Bradshaw was the featured running back.
Stability in Ownership
As long as the franchise is under the ownership of both the Mara and Tisch family, I don’t vision the giants spending a lot of money in signing free agents from other teams. They will definitely continue to sign the productive players that they developed.
The four starting defensive linemen during the 2011-2012 season were famous for making plays. We shall see if Justin Tuck, Linval Joseph, Cullen Jenkins and Jason Pierre-Paul together can do the same. They will be joined by 2013 draftees Johnathan Hankins (2nd round) and Damontre Moore (3rd) as reserves.
Defensive and Offensive Coordinators
The defensive unit is led by Perry Fewell, who has been with the team since 2010. Kevin Gilbride has been the offensive coordinator since 2007. He was promoted from quarterbacks coach, a position he held starting in 2004.
Running Backs and Tight Ends
The Giants will now rely on David Wilson, a 1st-round draft pick 2012, and Andre Brown, a 4th-round draft pick in 2009, to run the ball. David is under 6 feet tall and will also return kickoffs.
The Giants have Brandon Myers and Bear Pascoe for the tight end position. Thus, their biggest concerns will be those two positions. If the offense have trouble scoring touchdowns, they do at least have Josh Brown to kick field goals and Steve Weatherford to punt the ball.
It turns out for the 2013 regular season, the Giants will count on unproven players to help them gain victories.
Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle will be catching passes as wide receivers from Eli Manning.
A Backup Quarterback
The Giants drafted Ryan Nassib in the 4th round in 2013. We shall see how good he is in the NFL. Sean Ryan is currently the quarterbacks coach. He was hired in 2012, and doesn’t had any previous coaching experience.
