  • Most talented set of offensive skill position players in franchise history...

    Interesting that nobody has brought this up.....

    Giants will enter 2013 with the following skill position players

    QB - Eli Manning

    RB - David Wilson / Andre Brown

    WR - Hakeem Nicks / Victor Cruz / Rueben Randle / Louis Murphy

    TE - Brandon Myers / Adrien Robinson


    You can't name a single year in this team's history with a more complete set of weapons on offense.

    You've got a franchise QB in his prime, an explosive speed back, a downhill power back, FOUR deep threats at WR (one of which is the most dynamic slot receiver), a reliable sure-handed TE who works the zones, and a big athletic "blocking" TE (for now). Even the 4 WRs offer different skill sets that compliment each other well (Nicks/Randle run the entire route tree on the outside, Cruz in the slot, Murphy as the "knife")

    It's not a stretch at all to say we should average 31-33 points a game this season. In fact we should lead the league in points per game. Look around the NFL. Who has better offensive skill players than us?

      When you have the best QB in team history and probably the best 2 WRs as well, all the rest is filler on an easy ride to the best group of skills we've ever had.
      No one remembers who came in second.

        You can make a case for the Falcons. They have great WR's, a great TE, and now a great RB. Ryan is not a bad QB and got his first post season win this past season. The Saints and Patriots are still explosive offenses.

          It's the other guys on offense that worry me. No upgrades yet to a Oline that struggled to open holes for the running game and to keep the pressure off of Manning in the passing game.
          Do not feed the trolls.

            The QB and WR's are def set. The rest right now is just potential. Let them deliver first before we anoint them.

              The Broncos are ridiculously good now; Manning - Thomas - Welker - Decker - Tamme - Dreesen - Moreno - McGahee - Hillman

                Regarding your sig Jomo, I remember the patriots coming in second several times.

                  Hard to argue with that list. But nothing is written in stone.

                  By the looks of it, this is also the most undersized offense we've had in years.

                    I pray to god this year we can stay healthy. I'd love to see what this unit can do at full strength.

                      Me too... if the freak injuries to Locklear and Andre hadn't happened, we could have made a decent playoff run, just by having something to ram down an enemy defense in the run game.

                      I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                          Not a big deal when Defenses arent allowed to hit players anymore. You used to not want midget quick receivers going across the middle because they would get hurt. Now the safeties and LB's are neutered its all about speed and quickness

                            They were second in points per drive last year at 2.41 but only Seattle had less drives. If the defense could get off the field once in a while and not allow other teams to march up and down the field on them the offense would make this team nearly impossible to stop.

                            I still think that the passing game will not be as efficient this year as previous years due to Bradshaws departure. He was a vital part of pass protection and that is one of Wilson's shortcomings. Maybe Brown or Hightower adopts that role this season.

                            I found this data to tell a different side of the story when it comes to ranking offensive and defensive units on this team.
