Having the New York Giants’ new West Coast offense struggle in its first regular-season game wasn’t a surprise. Seeing defensive coordinator Perry Fewell’s defense get lit up by the Detroit Lions was shocking.
A number of mock drafts have the Giants taking North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron with their 12th pick on May 8. They may be right. But Big Blue has other needs, too.

For the third straight week, the Giants are playing an opponent who faces a must-win situation to either remain in playoff contention or while attempting to enhance its postseason seeding.

The New York Giants have a pretty good hunch what to expect from Minnesota with newcomer Josh Freeman taking over at quarterback for the struggling Vikings.
