After a tumultuous offseason, New York Giants fans don’t appear to be quite as confident in the direction of the team as they were at the end of a 5-11 2018 season.

SB Nation’s most recent FanPulse survey showed 46 percent of participating Giants fans are confident in the team’s direction. That is down from 57 percent at the end of the 2018 regular season.

The Giants have had an interesting, hotly-debated offseason.

Odell Beckham Jr., Landon Collins and Olivier Vernon are out. Jabrill Peppers, Golden Tate and Kevin Zeitler are in. So, too, is a new quarterback of the future with Daniel Jones having been selected with the sixth overall pick in the draft. Eli Manning is still a Giant and, for now, still the starting quarterback.

Before the draft, GM Dave Gettleman said he felt the team had already had “a really good offseason.”

After the draft, Gettleman said “we addressed everything we pretty much wanted to with this group ... we needed to help this defense, and I feel we addressed that and we filled in some holes with the offense.”

So, Gettleman feels good about the Giants’ offseason. Our poll, though, shows that Giants fans — or, more accurately, our voters — don’t necessarily agree.
