When a team has a 7-9 record and a point differential of minus-89—like the New York Giants did in 2013—everyone needs to make improvements the following season, star players included.
Some of the top players on Big Blue performed well last season, so only a modest amount of digging is needed to determine where they can get better. However, some others—Eli Manning, most notably—did not fare well, making the areas of improvement more apparent.
In either case, the success these key performers have fixing their weaknesses in 2014 will go a long way toward New York making it back to the playoffs.
The following slides will detail where four star players on the Giants must improve next season. Before we get started, one important item needs to be addressed: Only players who are under contract with the team in 2014 are included in this article. The reason is to ensure that the player will definitely be a Giant next season.
