The Giants have a glaring need at linebacker. Outside of getting the best available player — which could well be Alec Ogletree, anyway — that’s where the concentration of the first two days needs to be.
Since the Giants make the draft their top priority, it makes sense to glance at the GM’s history as he counts down to the three-day selection process.
Heading into the NFL Draft on Thursday, look for the Giants to fill many holes on defense in the seven rounds. That doesn’t mean, of course, that general manager Jerry Reese will use the 19th pick overall to take a defensive player.
Losing Umenyiora and Blackburn means that the Giants have a lot of work to do the rest of the offseason if they still want to be considered one of the league’s elite teams.
It was expected, and now it’s for real: Osi Umenyiora’s time with the Giants is up.
With Osi Umenyiora due to hit the free-agent market on March 12, should he make any attempt to re-sign him? How much should he pay Victor Cruz? Does he keep or release David Diehl? How about Corey Webster?
Reese has shown he can hold a hard line when negotiating with players, but now he must bring in new talent. There will be no excuses if he can’t upgrade the Giants’ defensive personnel next year.
Defense wins championships. But these days it’s a certain kind of defense. Check out our NFC all-pro defense to see who excels.
This week’s Pro Bowl reveal showed us that even as the local teams take a big pratfall, some players remained on their feet long enough to be recognized by their peers.
What’s notable for the Giants is that Eli Manning is not going to the Pro Bowl and there can be no argument that he was jobbed, the voting was a sham or an injustice has been done.
Wide receiver Victor Cruz, guard Chris Snee and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul have been selected to the 2012 NFC Pro Bowl team.
No more wiggle room — not one inch. OK, maybe a millimeter, but only enough to squeeze a thread through.
The Giants must show a willingness to engage that has only been apparent on an every-other-game basis in recent weeks.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that he has not ruled out running back Ahmad Bradshaw from Sunday’s matchup in Atlanta, despite a knee injury.
The Saints’ four-headed rushing attack could cause problems for the Giants on Sunday.
