The 2018 season wasn’t a total loss for the New York Giants. A trio of young players truly shined for Big Blue in all the darkness that was this past season, giving Giants fans more than enough hope for the future on the offensive side of the ball.

And, much to the chagrin of the haters, a certain 38-year-old veteran quarterback who is destined for Canton was able to come out of a messy offensive line situation to put up one of the best seasons of his career statistically. That’s right, Eli Manning had a good season, no matter how badly he was written off as finished.

Don’t believe me? The proof is in the pudding for Manning, as well as the rest of his teammates on offense who actually took a step in the right direction in 2018.

Kicker Aldrick Rosas took a giant leap forward in 2018 for Big Blue. After making just 72 percent of his field goal attempts in 2017, Rosas dialed up a 97 percent success rate in 2018 and posted a new career-best field goal of 57 yards.

On top of that, Rosas missed just one extra point, which was two fewer than his rookie season. The 24-year-old’s confidence should be sky-high in 2019 and it appears the Giants have a long-term solution at kicker.
