Confidence? Giants’ fans riding volatile wave thus far in 2018

Poll results show wild swings in Big Blue fan base so far this season

NFL: New York Giants at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The confidence, or lack thereof, of New York Giants fans in their team is showing stock market-like volatility through the first four weeks of the season.

After crashing from a pre-season high of 89 percent in our FanPulse survey to a low of 16 percent when the Giants were 0-2 after two weeks, a Week 3 victory over the Houston Texans has seen the fan confidence reflected in our weekly survey shoot back up to 54 percent.

That 38 percent jump is the second-highest among fan bases surveyed by SB Nation. The week before, fan base confidence plummeted by a remarkable 67 percent. The fan base, it seems, doesn’t quite know whether or not to believe in the Giants yet.

Detroit Lions’ fans voting at Pride of Detroit saw their confidence rise 48 percent, to 66 percent overall, after their team defeated the New England Patriots.

As for the New Orleans Saints, the Giants’ opponent this Sunday, 81 percent of fans voting at Canal Street Chronicles are confident in the direction of the 2-1 Saints as they head to MetLife Stadium.
