Giants: Take 'Em or Trash 'Em?
The New York Giants' title defense started like most seasons do -- with a 6-2 record.
But as most often the case under Tom Coughlin, the Giants sputtered down the stretch, but this time they were unable to get hot like last year.
There's plenty of blame to spread around. When they absolutely needed to win with the NFC East and the playoffs on the line, the Giants' offense and defense vanished.
But let's not forget: This coaching staff and core won it all just one season ago. It's easy to lose sight of the Giants winning two Super Bowls in five seasons.
With that in mind, most deserve to return, but there clearly are areas, such as offensive line, running back, secondary, defensive line and linebacker which need improvement, and in some cases an injection of youth and athleticism.
