    lol, let me direct your attention to our offensive line.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    the Giants offense is NOT AAA...
    the run game is poor, the QB protection is questionable, and no proven TE or #3 WR as of yet.

    The D has some holes to fill too but far from the O carrying all the weight.

    BTW....no team is 50/50....

    I like to look at us as a more balanced team.

    Not sure I can get on board with what you are selling...Think the O-line needs some shoring up and that will be a big deal.

    Listening to Sirius today on the way home, talking about Eli and they went back to the D-Line, yes the D-Line was great in the last 6 games last year but there would have been only 16 games instead of 20 if Eli didn't bail them out the rest of the season.

    Eli definitely put them on his back last year and carried them. When he didn't carry them he kept them close. I still think the turning point was Dallas when JPP single handedly took over the game. The Giants seemed motivated ever since. He is the new Bo Jackson...on defense of course....even though I could've sworn he threw himself a touchdown pass and even blocked for himself as he got a clean throw off.

    As is known, the O-line is shoddy at best. The only things we got were Locklear in free agency and a couple of projects in the late rounds. It depends on whether or not Locklear can step up and play LT at this point. If he can do that, Beatty's injury problems can at least be managed in the meantime, and we can swing DD over to right tackle. If Locklear can step up AND Beatty gets healthy, there's our tackles right there. But I don't think Beatty will be all that healthy early on.

    The skill positions, at least, have been restocked with fresh blood, if not dramatically improved. Bennett will be more than enough to play Ballard's role, and someone will step up to be the #3 WR. With Eli leading it, this offense combines the positive effects of the run-and-shoot offense (option routes, read and react) with the west coast offense (getting the short passes to stretch the field, also helps mask o-line problems in pass protection if Eli can get the ball out before a pass rusher can get to him). Granted, we got that way because our running game failed to develop in 2011, but at least we know that Eli will do whatever is required to support the team.

    As for defense, I think for the early part of the year it was a bit schizophrenic. We've always loaded our defense up front, and we live and die by the pass rush. PF comes in and manages the defense from the back. It was brutal to watch. But then as players came back online from injury, PF learned what he could do with the personnel we have, and thus our defense found its center again.

    I like how our team seeks to improve in a lot of areas and we are the defending champs. You don't see us sitting back resting on our laurels like past champions have
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!
