New York Giants: Take 'Em or Trash 'Em?

Updated: January 4, 2011, 4:36 PM ET
By Ohm Youngmisuk | ESPNNewYork.com

For the second straight season, the New York Giants failed to make the playoffs.

Unlike last time, the Giants did not quit down the stretch. Still, Tom Coughlin's team came up short at the end of the season, when it needed a win to get in.

Now the Giants will enter another postseason-less offseason. They're bringing Coughlin back, but there could be changes in East Rutherford.

Tell us which Giants you'd bring back and which ones you'd send packing. My comments, "Take" or "Trash," are in red.

Once you've placed your votes, tell us how you really feel about management, the coaches and the players, and who you want to replace them -- if you want to replace them, that is -- in the comments section.
