The Giants are tanking

The Giants are doing that which everyone thought the Jets would be doing.

With full knowledge and appreciation of the fact that their season is lost, the Giants are choosing to lose as many games as possible, in order to set up the best possible draft positioning for 2018.

Sure, theyíll deny it. But anyone who gets it knows whatís going on. Itís a tanking, plain and simple.

And thereís nothing wrong with it. If youíre going to lose anyway, losing as many as possibly creates a very real win.

Not that new starter Geno Smith will try to lose. Thatís not how tanking in the NFL works. The players and the coaches (except in some cases, like the Bucs vs. the Saints in Week 17 of the 2014 season for the Jameis Winston pick) will try to win. Tanking happens when an organization decides to see what the backups can do in a given game, necessarily making it harder to win the given game.
