After reading that article, the Giants season rests soley on the health of two players Hakeem Nicks and Jason Pierre-Paul. Now, I totally agree that we need Nicks and JPP healthy but at the same time I'm not jumping tot he conclusion that Nicks is going to be injured all of this season like he was last season. And I'm not jumping to the conclusion that the Giants can't rush the passer without JPP and he won't be a factor this season. I also got a kick out of how he is trying to say that the Giants have one more run in them, this year, and 2014 and beyond will be rebuilding years because Tuck, Diehl, Nicks, Snee, etc. could be gone. Every year on every team in the NFL, there is player turnover. The Giants will be rebuilding when Eli retires, IMO. Or maybe not, Ryan Nassib? Hey Ralph Vacchianno, I know you are Mr. Negative with your views on the Giants and your sense of humor on twitter always falls flat, but can you be anymore negative about this Giants team? If we should listen to your piece of garbage article, why bother watching the Giants this year?

They ALL do have questions marks. That's why you never give up on a season until your team is knocked out of the running. But, in fairness to Ralph - and I really can't believe I'm defending a NY sportswriter because I really don't care for any of them, Ralph gets paid to write about the Giants, so that's team he's going to nit pick about. Ultimately, it's really just an opinion piece. The answers don't come until the games are played. I'm ready for kickoff now. Can't believe I have to wait until Sept. 8th for a game that counts.

Also, the team will be in rebuilding mode next year because a few veterans contracts are up. I don't disagree with the fact that the Giants have question marks, but every team in the NFL has question marks!

I am realistic and I don't see this year's team as a stand out team. The offense has the chance to be real good and score a lot of points, but the defense, I'm sorry, is not very good at all. The corners are subpar and the linebackers are awful. The defensive tackles are much better than last year, and a lot deeper than last year, but the ends are not the elite pass rushers we're used to. Tuck is average now, Kiwi is probably just a little better and JPP is dealing with a major injury/rehab. Call me pessimistic, but I see 7 wins this year. I hope I'm wrong. We'll find out.

I think the Giants will have an elite offense again. The problem will once again be on the defensive side of the ball. Like last year, this defense will give up a lot of yards and have a hard time getting off the field.
While I agree with Leagued on the defense, I think the offense might be good enough to get the Giants into the playoffs, but it'll be a close call either way, just like it was in 2012. It could come down to one game, one play......
For the defense to be really good, some of the younger players will need to step up and take their game to a higher level. It could happen, but it could go the other way too.My thoughts could change on this matter but right now I don't believe the Giants front office did enough in the off-season to upgrade the defense. And so I'm anticipating another poor defensive effort this season. Part of the problem is related to the cap--the Giants didn't have the cap space to make necessary upgrades. However, the problem could be related to inadequate player evaluation as well. I sometimes wonder if this coaching staff is better at evaluating offensive players than defensive players.
Remember Joe Delaney
