    Many hole to fill, where would you start?

    Many needs at the moment.
    I would start with O-line. Give Eli time and he is a top notch QB. It would also help the running game. If AB can get healthy I think Brown and Wilso n could be a good trio. AB is a tough guy, I hope he can get healthy.

    Martellus Bennett can not be your primary TE, be has hands of stone. I would keep Bennett if the price is right as he is a good blocker. Hopefully th ere is a decent veteran TE with good hands in free agency.

    I think WR is OK although we all know Nicks will be hurt again next year. Hixon has been solid but again an injury waiting to happen. WR is not a pr iority.

    D-Line - Osi has to go, he is nothing more than a 3rd down specialist at this stage of his career, and not a very good one. I would have a sit down wit h Tuck and see if he wants to still play football. Doesn't look like that is the case. Hopefully Rodgers can come back healthy next year and help stre ngthen the run defense. Canty needs to take a cut in pay. If there is a good d-linemen in the 2nd round I would take him. Also look for a decent FA. Kiwi should a full time D-lineman.

    LB's, yuck. Can only plug so many holes in one year. May have to put up with this very weak group again. Boley looks so slow that I would conside r to let him go. Rivers will be injured so can't consider him. Go with the young guys and see if they can improve, quickly.

    If TT can come back healthy (highly unlikely) they would be OK. Webster has shown that he is a 2-3 CB at best. Kenny Phillips will most likely be i njured so keep Rolle. Hopefully Hill will develop into a solid DB. Prince played well but again another very injury prone Giant.

    I am not a big Perry Fewell fan but continuity is important. If a really top notch DC was available I would consider the change.

    It has to be OL. If you are going to invest $100 million in a non mobile QB he better have all day to throw the ball and a good running game. After that DE's.

    Offensive line. Other then Beatty, everyone on the line can be replaced.

    I thought Boothe played OK. Can't get rid of all in one year. Right side surely needs to be addressed.

    I like Boothe, and he's a servicable lineman. Can play multiple positions. Was just stating that we need upgrades to every position other then left tackle. Realistically we could change minimum two spots on the o-line for next year.

    not only non moblie, but erratic, and makes horrible decisons when the least bit of pressure is on em... ELI is just as enigmatic as the OSI's and Tucks.. U never know what ur gonna get from ELI.. He shouden't get any kinda pass for this yr, as hes regressed right back to the guy people debated wasent' elite or was elite for basically his entire career.. Obviously its clear the guys never gonna be elite for any stretch of seasons, and if he does have seasons like this, people will blame other reasons to why, instead of just look at his yearly numbers, and see, he always has been like this.. ..

    I'm not absolving him of the stupidity he's shown in games, but you shouldn't gloss over the over the hill OL, receivers who can't break free nor make ridiculous catches (Look what those receivers did to Flacco yesterday, look at what receivers are doing with Luck in Indianapolis) , a hobbled WR who did more harm than good, a running game that lives and dies by "my feet are always busted-up" Bradshaw, the same running game that's expected to ground and pound when our OL is the one who keeps getting pushed back.
    For a Giant fan that I personally knew: My mom. May she smile and be delighted whenever her favorite player - Victor Cruz - scores a touchdown and does his salsa dance.

    Thank you mom for everything! Let's Go Giants!
