Winning a Super Bowl does a lot for a franchise, not the least of which is make fans forget about their team's shortcomings.
While the Giants secondary played well down the stretch and in the playoffs, most seem to forget the absolute mayhem that surrounded the unit for the first three quarters of the season.
In games against the Redskins and Cowboys, receivers were running around wide open as communication breakdowns became as common as Eli Manning fourth quarter comebacks.
It even manifested itself in a minor war of words in the media between Corey Webster and Antrelle Rolle after Dez Bryant waltzed into the end zone untouched on a 50-yard touchdown reception.
In fact, if Wes Welker and Tom Brady could have connected on an easy pitch and catch in the waning minutes of the Super Bowl, we would be talking about how the secondary's communication problems left Welker open and clinched the championship for the Patriots.
With Terrell Thomas coming off ACL surgery and Aaron Ross, Will Blackmon and Deon Grant all entering free agency, the Giants secondary could have a much different look next year.
Factor in that Prince Amukamara showed little during a rookie season in which he was hampered with a foot injury, and the Giants really need to address their secondary.
One of the top free agent cornerbacks on the market is Carlos Rogers, who had a resurgent season in San Francisco playing on a one-year contract.
Rogers benefited from playing on a team that generated tremendous pressure in 2011 and if he landed on the Giants, he would be in that position again. Also, he played his first six NFL seasons with the Redskins, so his familiarity with the NFC East would make for an easy adjustment to what would be his third team in three seasons.
The one person who might keep this transaction from happening though is Rogers himself.
Rogers has been vocal about his desire to return to San Francisco and has mentioned that while he would like to be paid as a top corner, he would give the 49ers a hometown discount.
The 49ers had an absolutely dominant defense in 2011 and would like to keep that unit intact going forward, which means Rogers and the Niners should be able to work out a deal to keep him in San Francisco long-term.
