Do you think the Defense or Offense will play better next season? They both still have holes to fill which will likely be filled in the NFL draft.
Offense has an obvious need at TE... The Offense was a disappointment last season. That could be partly attributed to Eli but I think the majority of the blame goes to the OL. There will be a new coach calling the shots on offense!! They upgraded the OL and signed R. Jennings at RB who can run the ball hard and catch very well out of the backfield. WR's is a question mark with Nicks not returning. Cruz is obviously the main guy but Randle and JJ really have to step up if the offense wants to perform well.
Defense has obvious needs on the DL... DT played better than the offense last season, especially after acquiring Jon Beason. Strongside LB was addressed with the signing of McClain. Beason was brought back as well which makes weakside LB a bit of a question mark with JWill and Paysigner most likely splitting time at the position. DE we lost Tuck so the Giants are hoping that Moore is ready to step up and make an impact in his second season. The Giants also lost Joesph who was their best DT and are hoping that 2nd year player Hankins can step up as well. Both positions have little depth and will be areas that the Giants will likely target in the draft. The secondary is much improved. The most notable signings are DRC and Walter Thurmond. I think that this will really help the defense out.
I personally think that the defense will play better next season because of the upgrades in the secondary. I think that the LB core is more solid with the McClain signing as well. The DL holes make me a little nervous but that can really be fixed with someone like Aaron Donald DT Pitt and/or Scott Cricthon DE Oregon St. There are other DE's like Kareem Martin who can make a nice impact on the team as well if they miss out on Crichton. That being said I think the offense will have its growing pains early with the new offense but will perform fine if the OL holds up and the TE position is addressed.
EDIT: I meant which do you think will be ranked higher in the league at the end of the year if there was any confusion
