After an extremely poor showing from the entire LSU Tigers in last year's National Championship, the bright lights of New York City will descend upon Dallas' top draft pick Morris Claiborne.
Through no major fault of his own, the last time the spotlight was on Claiborne, it was a disaster. The season opener in the media capital of the world is going to shake the confidence of any rookie, no matter what anyone tells you.
With Eli Manning having formed great chemistry with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, the passing game for the Giants is already established.
The loss of Mario Manningham is going to hurt the Giants in the short-run, but it will only be a matter of time before Manning turns a third receiver into a star.
Star cornerback Mike Jenkins is coming off a shoulder surgery and expecting any player to come back at 100 percent is a bad idea.
For his own benefit, Claiborne won't be rushed into a starting job from day one, but a player of his caliber and draft status needs to get as much experience as he can.
The Giants offensive line is not a good matchup for Dallas, and with offenses across the league switching to an extremely pass-heavy agenda, expect Manning to light up the Cowboys.
