Free agent DE Dwight Freeney left San Diego without a contract this week. The market has been thin for the former Colts' star and now his father has take to the airwaves to lobby for his son. From PFT:
?He?d love to be with the Giants, but the Giants unfortunately don?t have the money for it. They?re broke,? Hugh Freeney said on Adam Schein?s radio show on Sirius XM Mad Dog Radio.

All won?t wind up being equal and the Giants may not be in the market for another veteran defensive end with Mathias Kiwanuka expected to spend the majority of his time at the position after Osi Umenyiora?s departure as a free agent. That might leave San Diego, imperfect scheme or not, as the landing spot for Freeney if he doesn?t want to continue playing the waiting game.

Historically, the New York Giants have owned the Atlanta Falcons -- in the regular season, in the playoffs -- that was until this season.

Atlanta dismantled New York, just as the Giants tried to make one last playoff push.

Now it appears as if the NFC's top-seeded team may have interest in plucking one of the Giants main cogs and potential free-agent targets.

First up at the podium this morning at the NFL Scouting Combine was Giants GM Jerry Reese, who fielded questions ranging from the team's priorities, to its approach in free agency, to in-house solutions.

Earlier this week, former Colts DE Dwight Freeney -- a native New Yorker who grew up a fan of Big Blue -- said it would be a dream to suit up for the Giants.

In an interview with the Sirius XM Radio, recently released defensive end Dwight Freeney called the prospect of playing football in New York would be a dream.

"Playing in New York would be attractive. For playing for (the Giants) would be a dream," the Syracuse alum said.

Freeney, who grew up a New York Giants fan, could very well be courted by his hometown club. Should the team fail to come to terms with Osi Umenyiora, there may be an opening along its defensive front.

This season, the Giants lacked their signature pass rush, which had lifted them over the Patriots in Super Bowls twice and had set the tone for the rest of their defense.

Whether it's via free agency, the draft or trades, the Giants need to upgrade their pass rush, which will allow their linebackers to focus more on stopping the revent and their defensive backs on generating turnovers.

The heart and soul of the Giants D: the defensive line. Let's begin there.

Kevin Gilbride holds back this offense.?? This offense needs a young innovative mind that can use all the pieces effectively.? Watching the Giants take on the Bears sitting in Section 143 on Sunday night was frustrating.?? On numerous drives the offense sputtered and came up lame, which has me asking...Why?

Why do so many teams with the lesser talent score a ton of points and close out teams when the opportunity presents itself.

The answer:? Kevin "KILL-DRIVE" Gilbride.

The Giants must key in on stopping these three players if they want to win Manning Bowl II.

1. Peyton Manning

When facing the Colts, the #1 priority is always stopping Peyton Manning. ?Playing from behind most of the game, Peyton was in top form in week 1 against the Texans. ?The Colts abandoned the running game, and the Texans still couldn't slow down Manning. ?The Giants' secondary will have their hands full with the deepest receiving core in the game, but stopping Peyton starts with the defensive line. ?If their defensive line comes out flat, the Colts could have 21 points at halftime.
