This season marks the 100th anniversary of the New York Giants, a milestone in the team’s storied history. Despite a challenging last season, head coach Mike Daboll and his squad are determined to improve, even as they face the significant absences of their best players in the past seasons, running back Saquon Barkley who went to division rivals Eagles and Leonard Williams who left mid season in a trade with the Seahawks.

To commemorate their centennial, the Giants have announced they will wear a retro uniform, incorporating “pieces from the past.” The special kit includes the 1933 Jersey, 1938 Helmet, and 1925 Pants & Socks. Most of us haven’t seen or known about the uniforms from that era, but they certainly weren’t very fashionable.

The team’s first-round draft pick and new wide receiver Malik Nabers from LSU acknowledges that “it’s gonna be hard to swag it out.” However, the best way for fans to showcase this uniform is by winning games, scoring points in fantasy leagues, and then everything else is a bonus. With many offensive players drafted this year the task to win Rookie of the Year surely will be as hard as any season has seen but Nabers a 6’0″, 200 pound wide receiver will need to adapt fast and become a star like what the last great LSU wide receiver who played there, OBJ.

LSU has produced several outstanding wide receivers for the NFL, such as Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, DJ Chark, Justin Jefferson, and Ja’Marr Chase. Nabers is tasked with elevating the Giants’ aerial game alongside quarterback Daniel Jones, as the team ranked 31st and 24th in passing yards over the past two seasons. With their 100th anniversary upon them, Giants fans are hopeful that this year will be an improvement over previous ones.

Here’s to a historic season for the New York Giants as they honor their past and look forward to a promising future.
