Back to the Show: Who Stands in the Giant's Way

Last season, the Giants finished with the best record in the NFC. That record may have been even better, if not for the unexpected loss of Plaxico Burress. That loss exposed a few of the Giant's weaknesses. The obvious one is that of the receiver situation. Even with an experienced flanker like Amani Toomer, our receiving abilities were severely hindered. Also, our depth in running showed that it could not dominate nearly as much with that extra man in the box.

Against the Eagles, the speed and ferocity of our linebacker corps was clearly lacking. Antonio pierce may be one of the most cunning linebackers, and dynamic leaders in the league, but his physical capabilities are lacking. Then there was the issue of the pass rush. Towards the end of the year, our number one rusher, Justin Tuck, began to show some fatigue from injury. When that happened, our secondary began to falter a bit. Corey Webster held his own but others could not. All in all, our offensive and defensive rythms were not in sync towards the end of last season.
This season, the Giants are facing some tough opponents. Their major contenders are, The Redskins(twice), The Eagles (Twice),The Saints and The Panthers. The rest of the schedule will be no Piece of cake. Other contenders include, Arizona, Dallas, Denver, Minnesota, Atlanta and Tampa Bay. While we are never able to truly predict what will happen, this slide show will analyze, what I believe will be the toughest games ahead of the Giants and which circumstances will lead to their victory or demise.
