The New York Giants were eliminated from playoff contention when the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears (it looks like the better team made it, since the Packers beat the Eagles twice, whereas the Giants lost to them twice), and when that happened, the switch to offseason mode had been flipped.
The owners came out and said they were retaining Tom Coughlin despite rumors spreading that his days were numbered—apparently his job was never in jeopardy—and they may have to search for new coordinators, as both are linked to head coaching vacancies.
The other concentration will be who to take with the 19th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft (oh yeah, and the other picks too).
The Giants don't have any glaring needs but will need to make a smart pick to set them up for the future. You could argue that in the immediate future they need a center and an outside linebacker, but they also need to start getting younger at the other positions on the offensive line.
That said, here are 10 guys I believe will be on the Giants' radar with the 19th pick.
