Since when were we so dismissive of two Lombardi Trophies? Just 23 months ago we were wondering if Eli had a better career than brother Peyton. We’d already placed the Giants’ QB in the Hall of Fame.
The Giants co-owner spoke Monday about the many shortcomings of the team, including the offensive line, but did not point the blame at coach Tom Coughlin or general manager Jerry Reese.
The New York Giants missed the playoffs for the second year in a row, compiling a 7-9 record in 2013. It was only the second losing record under the leadership of Tom Coughlin as Giants head coach, who took command of the team in 2004.

Tom Coughlin is seemingly on secure footing, unless the 67-year-old decides to call it quits. His 2014 roster could be overhauled.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz expects to recover from knee surgery in time to take part in offseason workouts in the spring.
