The Definitive Blueprint to the New York Giants' Perfect Offseason

The people in the New York Giants front office aren’t wasting any time in putting their heads together to sift through the rubble of the 2013 season.

Given the amount of work they have to do, it’s a little surprising that they didn’t start these meetings several weeks ago, after the team was assured of finishing below .500 for the first time since 2004. 

One of the first decisions that will need to be made concerns head coach Tom Coughlin. He has said that he wants to continue to coach. Team COO John Mara has said he wants Coughlin to continue as the team’s head coach.

The question, though, is how much longer will the soon-to-be 68-year-old Coughlin remain on the job? The Giants have always tried to avoid having a situation where a coach is in the final year of his contract, but realistically, how much longer can they extend him?

Beyond the coach's expected return for an 11th season, the Giants brain trust will attempt to resolve numerous issues. These include but are not limited to extending Coughlin beyond this coming season, the last of his contract; overhauling the assistant coaching staff; and evaluating the current roster.

Mara and general manager Jerry Reese have both indicated that they have ideas and opinions about these and other pressing topics. Those decisions could start to trickle out as soon as next week.

Until we learn what the brass decides, here is a look at some potential areas that the Giants need to address in order to ensure a perfect offseason.
