Here it is Giants fans, remember what kind of offensive football team you have. Some of you who watched the Giants-Bears game this past Saturday night started to get that strange feeling in your stomach, uh-oh, that feeling you get when your star wide receiver plugs a bullet in his thigh at close range. Before you declare the offense a bust and start screaming for Braylon Edwards or Anquan Boldin, know this:

The Giants are a smash mouth running offensive football team, Tom Coughlin loves to control the clock and move the chains. The Giants identity on offense will not change.

Paging Kevin Gilbride, please do not forget to use your running backs in the passing game (let Ahmad Bradshaw, Danny Ware and the Monster, Brandon Jacobs get the ball in space). Get the ball to Domenik Hixon, Mario Manningham and Sinorice Moss on the run; and let Eli use play-action to get the ball down the field.

The Giants offense needs to limit turnovers (did I just hear Tom Coughlin's voice), control the clock and execute in the green-zone.  The Giants offense doesn't have to be "The Greatest Show On Turf" for the Giants to contend for another Superbowl title. I said it and I actually believe it.
