As with any team in the NFL, after the season is over, you can usually point to a handful of players that were vital to their success or failure. It was no different with the 2011 New York Giants. Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Jason Pierre-Paul were huge factors in the Giants' run to Super Bowl XLVI.
Who will be those players in 2012? I have narrowed it down to 10 players who the Giants need to play at a high level to continue their success from 2011.
Obviously, this is a team sport—probably more than any other—but these 10 players will be relied upon to sustain the winning attitude more than others.
