Troy Aikman doesn’t think much of the undefeated Giants

Troy Aikman does not sound like a believer in the 2-0 Giants.

Two victories by a combined four points over the Titans and Panthers has not convinced ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” color commentator that Brian Daboll’s crew is a contender.

“I’ve seen a team that’s pretty fortunate to be 2-0,” Aikman told the Dallas Morning News before Monday night’s Giants-Cowboys matchup at MetLife Stadium. “Defensively — I don’t want to say they’re like the Cowboys, because I do believe the Cowboys overall are a far better team than what I’ve seen of the Giants. Offensively, they’re just struggling. I think the offensive line’s a work in progress — the whole team is, I guess, for that matter. And that’s what happens when you have the turnover that they’ve had at the head coaching position.”

Their offense has scored a total of 40 points while Daniel Jones has been sacked eight times in the pair of games. The defense has been the biggest surprise with the Giants through this hot start and has helped bring Daboll some credibility.

“To be able to win two games when you’re starting out as a new staff, I think goes goes a long, long way,” said the former Cowboys star quarterback, who said Dallas is stronger than the Giants in several areas. “… I just don’t know what exactly New York has, but I don’t think it’s a lot.”

The Giants are 2-0 for the first time since 2016, which was the last time they made the playoffs. Before Daboll, there were failed stints by Ben McAdoo, Pat Shurmur and Joe Judge.

“It’s pretty amazing just how far the Giants have fallen,” Aikman said. “… I used to do a lot of Giants games. And then the last couple of years, I think I’ve only had them on Thursday nights. And so I haven’t seen a lot of them. But I know in the times I’ve gotten ready, I just said man, this team — I know the [Mara family is] flabbergasted at what’s happened to this organization and how few games that they’ve been able to win.”
