New York Giants' Offseason State of the Union

The tackling dummies have been put away for now, but don’t get too used to the lull in the activity coming out of East Rutherford, New Jersey, where the New York Giants train year-round.

The 90-man training camp roster is mostly set—there might still be a tweak here and there before head coach Tom Coughlin, his coaching staff and the players report back to the Quest Diagnostics Training Center for the start of summer training camp on July 21. 

Before we go into the specifics of where the Giants currently stand, the biggest thing that needs emphasis is the sweeping number of changes made in the football program.

The offensive coaching staff has become significantly younger thanks to the departures of offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, tight ends coach Mike Pope and running backs coach Jerald Ingram.

Younger doesn’t always translate to better, but given that the system the Giants offense ran since the end of 2006 had become stale and outdated, some fresh ideas from these Gen X coaches who helped offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo put the playbook together, such as Kevin M. Gilbride, Craig Johnson, Danny Langsdorf and Sean Ryan, should be exciting to watch.

Then there is the roster itself.

Based on the 2013 Week 1 game book in which the opening day lineup is listed, the Giants could be looking at as many as eight new starters on offense and seven on defense when they take the field on September 8 in Detroit.

There’s been a lot of change, and with it, many questions have been stirred up. So let’s look at where the Giants are right now and where they need to be by opening night.
