Moeller: There Is No Running The Table For The Giants, But…

Neil Miller/NYSD

Odell Beckham Jr. recently stated the Giants can run the table over their final eight games.

Wishful thinking for a team that has trouble scoring against teams as well as stopping teams.

But..could they? They had a bye week to regroup and contemplate.

Realistically, it probably won’t be done, but the Giants can make it respectable. Or they can continue to

refine their hit and draft list for next season.

It all hinges on a win against in San Francisco Monday night against a 49ers team that completely took

advantage of Oakland, who noticeably packed it in after a few minutes.

Despite their lone win, the Giants have shown they can piece together impressive drives and pass the

elusive 30-point plateau, a mark that hit in last-second loss to Carolina.

The Giants will have Olivier Vernon back in the lineup against a team that has allowed 31 sacks, the

same amount Eli Manning has endured.

The offensive line will be the key. San Francisco registered seven sacks last week.

The G-Men released former starting guard Patrick Omameh, and they claimed guard Jamon Brown off

waivers from the Rams. Brown started in all of the Rams’ games last season and got the nod in 30 of

their last 42.

John Greco has played admirably in place of Omameh, and Spencer Pulley has done a nice job at center.

Put it all together on the bay, and then come home to face a fleeting Tampa Bay team.

With some momentum, the Giants should be able to beat the Buccaneers.

Now, it gets interesting.

So, they are 3-7 and headed to Philadelphia for a key showdown.

This is a tough one because the Eagles have awoken from their nest and look ready to sweep away the

division.

They then host the Bears and it is the challenge to keep Khalil Mack away from Manning.

Let’s call it a split and have them at 4-8.

 Left on the schedule are games at Washington and Indianapolis and home dates with Tennessee and

Dallas.

By this time, the Giants have found their niche, and Saquon Barkley is dipping, slashing, and swerving his

way toward being the top rookie in the league.

Manning has a second wind and he has either punched his ticket elsewhere or secure his spot for next

year.

The Giants finish 7-9 or even 8-8 and are mentioned in the playoff hunt.

On paper, it sounds good. The Giants have to keep reminding themselves that they have the potential to

do it.

It comes down to execution and confidence.

And it can all begin or end Monday night.
