2011 NY Giants

The New York Giants took a step towards getting Eli Manning a "safety blanket" receiver by signing one of Peyton's old ones.

Today the Giants signed WR Brandon Stokley formerly of the Colts and Broncos. The 35 year old receiver is a proven pass catcher and more importantly an experienced slot receiver. That means that the youth movement at slot just isn't working out and that an upgrade was needed.

It's hard to think of a 35 year old receiver as an upgrade, but Stokley will at least remember his routes and line up correctly, so I guess that is a step in a positive direction

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter the New England Patriots have released CB Darius Butler after failing to acquire a trade for him.

The New York Giants should be the first team in line to acquire his services. Butler has playoff experience and can add great depth to a secondary ravaged by injury. After an offseason of horrible moves and missed opportunities the Giants must act fast to grab this unexpected quality free agent.

If GM Jerry Reese once again fails to nab a much needed free agent Giants fans will be in an uproar and he may find himself on the hot seat.

Between the notebook pages, the stats and the film there is a poison that is undetected.? This poison has drained the Giants offense and there winning ways for three years.? That overlooked key element is...Attitude.

This offense has no swagger.

This team should be able to close out games with ease and crush opponents at will.? Why is attitude so important?? Because the New York Giants have one of the most talented offenses in the NFL, but clearly lack the keys to start the engine.
