  • Five Things Giants Have To Do To Reach Next Season's Super Bowl

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...wMhPybbFJV5ncO

    Excerpt: "One year ago, the Giants were bundling up and gearing up for their victory parade through the Canyon Heroes as newly-crowned Super Bowl champions. Their quest for as repeat fell flat, as they didn’t even get into the playoffs. There’s work to be done, especially on defense, but here’s how they can be a factor in 2013:

    WHAT’S THE RUSH?

    If the Giants cannot hound the quarterback they cannot play defense and without a fearsome rush they don’t win two Super Bowls in a five-year span. Now it’s time for retooling. Osi Umenyiora likely won’t be re-signed and even if Mathias Kiwanuka becomes a full-time defensive end another pass-rusher is needed, even if the Giants are confident Justin Tuck has plenty left in the tank.

    GET NICKS FIXED

    The dynamic nature to the entire offense never materialized because Hakeem Nicks wasn’t healthy all season, bothered and at times sidelined first with foot issues and then with a bum knee. He’s entering the last year of his contract and needs to return to form to cash in.


    LINE IT UP


    It is no coincidence that the 49ers represented the NFC in the Super Bowl and their five offensive linemen started every game, all 19 of ‘em. Lots of unknowns with Giants, as left tackle Will Beatty and right guard Kevin Boothe are free agents, right tackle David Diehl is on the downside and right guard Chris Snee is having hip surgery.

    I'm not really confident in Tuck anymore. maybe it's too early for me to say that, but to assume he was playing injured for 2 years in a row really makes me question his longevity. I think we get another DE through the draft. Hopefully we can get someone who works out as early as JPP. Stud DEs arent exactly falling off the defense tree these days.

      ain't that a depressing article.

      find a passrush that isn't there anymore, get a guy healthy who looks like he's breaking down, fix a line where 4 of 5 members could be gone or are declining in performance, and get hungry when some guys on the team already have 2 rings.

      sheesh.

        That's why I think they will draft a DE first. Get the pass rush fixed and that will go a long way. Also, the offense was as much to blame as the defense. It seems everyone just keeps calling out the defense but the fact is the offense did as much to lose this year as the defense did. Part of that was injury and part of it was poor play. Both can change next year without making a single roster move. Then make a roster move by adding a RT and things could be much different this year.

          Not sucking would help a great deal.

              Personally, I think fixing the Oline will go a long way toward fixing some of the other problems.

                The biggest thing. Hopefully we can be underdogs again.

                  Not having our schedule backloaded with all the good opponents at the end when we start to wear down might help with that.

                      I can almost guarantee that Hakeem Nicks will get hurt again. He's made out of glass.

                        i know fans love him. but i'm with you on this. i don't have any confidence in his body.

                        when i heard he went out and bought a hyperbaric chamber for his bedroom, before he started missing games with injuries, i thought 'this is either a guy who is a hard core professional doing anything he can to compete, or his body is already starting to get worn down.........

                          No, he hasn't played an entire season since being drafted. However, this year was the first time it was a huge issue with him missing a lot of games and not being a factor in a bunch of others.

                            Perhaps, but his record is what it is and it's a concern. It will play into Reese's offer(s)

                              No doubt, but his agent will also present them with his post season numbers. Should be an interesting negotiation.
