Biggest Questions for Both New York Football Teams Heading into the Season

The 2023 NFL season is nearly upon us. Hopes are high for both New York football franchises for the first time in over a decade but there are still some question marks about both teams. The Jets and the Giants should both be good but to be great these questions will have to be sorted out.

Can the Jets take a big jump?

Last season the New York Jets had an elite defense. The problem was the play of their offense. To address that situation the Jets signed a future hall of fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. This should address the problem but there are questions about if Rodgers still has it.

Aaron Rodgers is 38 years old now and hasn’t thrown for over 300 yards in a game since early December of 2021. For the Jets to make a deep run in the playoffs he will undoubtedly have to break that streak numerous times and play like his former-MVP self.

Another big question is at the wide receiver position. The top wideout for the Jets is projected to be Garrett Wilson who is in just his second year in the NFL. Allen Lazard is expected to be the second wide receiver but he hasn’t been effective as any better than the third option in his career so far. The Jets are also dealing with other issues at the position like Corey Davis retiring and an injury to Mecole Hardman. Someone will need to step up.

Are the Giants talented enough?

Looking at the Giants roster, there are not many players on either side of the ball that jump out to you as elite players outside of Saquon Barkley. Their wide receivers may be the least talented and most unproven in the NFL. To address that they brought in Darren Waller who has been an elite tight end in the league but has regressed over the past couple of years.

The Giants have a bunch of solid players but will need some of them to step it up a notch for the Giants to be a legit Super Bowl contender.

Lastly, Daniel Jones is a big question mark. The Giants gave him a massive contract after his best year as a pro and the Giants will only go as far as he takes them. He is still largely unproven but ultimately holds the key to the Giants’ success this year.
