The 2014 Giants will be a somewhat unfamiliar-looking Giants team.
The offense projects to be a total overhaul by new coordinator Ben McAdoo (with a West Coast influence, as he coached in Green Bay). Long-time head coach Tom Coughlin is still the Giants' CEO of all that occurs on the field, and quarterback Eli Manning is still his faithful marshall of the aerial assault. But the third most popular player of the two most recent Super Bowl runs, end Justin Tuck, now a Raider, leaves the Big Blue defense devoid of its captain and vocal leader in the locker room.
This fall's team will feature several new faces. Of the 15 new free agents signed this spring, some are certain to find the starting lineup. And don't forget about the rookie class, scheduled to join the Jints early next month via the 2014 NFL Draft.
The identity of this team remains undetermined, but you can bet there will be several defining performances—fair and poor—between early September and the winter holidays.
This list was not particularly easy to write, because I know many of you are as I am when it comes to watching the Giants—the type of fan who defines every game as "must-watch."
So, this slideshow will highlight the 2014 games that are must-watch in the sense that they will paint us the clearest picture of who these new-look Giants really are.
