The New York Giants go into this offseason with a myriad of questions, none of which have easy answers.
Coming off their first losing season since Tom Coughlin became head coach in 2004, the team as a whole looked like a shell of the squad that won the Super Bowl just two years ago.
With aspirations of becoming the first team to play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium, the Giants promptly fell to 0-6 to start the 2013 season, becoming the first team in history to allow 30 or more points in the first six games. By the time the defense got it together, the offense couldn't do anything and was often overmatched.
Following years of success under general manager Jerry Reese, the Giants are now in a rebuilding stage. Many things have already changed since the end of the regular season and more change is on the horizon. This is a necessary stage if the Giants hope to recapture their competitive edge.
The following list highlights 10 areas the Giants need to focus on during this rebuilding stage. Fortunately they are in a better position than most teams that have to go through this process. Some of the issues presented can be looked at this offseason but are not issues that need to be immediately addressed.
Others are more pressing issues that the Giants must address immediately if they have any hope of being competitive in the upcoming season. Each issue was analyzed in the context of how urgently it needs to be addressed for success in 2014.
