Jerry Reese has stated the Giants may not be as aggressive as they were last March in free agency, but also said he would explore every avenue to improve the roster. With yesterday's rumors regarding the Giants' sudden interest in ?Ndamakong Suh circulating throughout the internet, it's very possible that Reese is ready to let some more veterans go in order to do some serious bidding.

Last year, the Giants were mandated by management to upgrade the offense. They went headlong into free agency by signing veteran OL Geoff Schwartz and RB Rashad Jennings. Both players had their debut seasons with the Giants cut short and hampered by injuries. The club is still high on both players and expect them to produce as advertised this season.

During the Super Bowl, Giants? outspoken safety Antrel Rolle sat next to Packers? free-agent tight end Jermichael Finley, and the two talked about potentially playing together as members of Big Blue.

Rolle commented on what a talented player Finley is and that he could really help the 2014 Giants.

I couldn?t agree more, Antrel.

New Giants? offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said he would like to implement an attack-style system into Big Blue?s offense for next season and beyond.

After watching the offensive unit struggle all year, McAdoo?s words are music to my ears.

However, an attack-style offense on paper is of course different from an attack-style offense in action.

Every offseason, teams attempt to address their areas of weakness from the previous season. Sounds pretty simple right?

Well, for the 2014 New York Football Giants, there are so many weaknesses that the team may have to pick and choose which areas to address.

Recently-retired offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride commented on the shuffling of the offensive line this season and how it negatively affected what Eli Manning was able to do.

In Week 17, the Giants (6-9) close out their season at home against the Washington Redskins (3-12).

It?s a pretty much meaningless game, but at least the Giants would like to end the season on a high note.

The Giants embraced the role of playing spoiler in a 23-20 overtime win, but it really was the Lions that blew this game more so than the Giants actually rising to the occasion.

The loss eliminates the Lions from playoff contention. But even so, the Giants? offense looked totally inept at times ? in fact, most of the time.

Big Blue led 13-3 at halftime, and for the most part, the makeshift offense line held its own against a tough Detroit defensive front. And Jerrel Jernigan ? who was the team?s leading receiver last week against the Seahawks ? had four catches, including a great catch on his first career touchdown reception, in the first half.

The Giants? offense played well enough in even-numbered quarters to earn a 24-17 win Sunday night over the Redskins.

Two touchdowns in the second quarter and a touchdown and field goal in the fourth quarter made up for two inept looking quarters: the first and third.

Big Blue went three and out on both of its first quarter drives, while the third quarter featured two punts and Eli Manning?s 18th interception of the season.

This weekend is the Giants? Super Bowl, and offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride met the media Thursday to discuss this all important matchup.

Big Blue?s offense has shown some decent signs of life the past few weeks, but the unit still has not hit its stride.

In the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle all racked up 100-plus yards receiving, so Eli Manning is hoping he can spread the ball around on the Cowboys? depleted secondary.

Was it perfect? No.

But the Giants found a way to win their fourth straight game in a 27-13 contest over the Packers, and unlike some of the recent wins, there were at least a good chunk of positives to take away from Big Blue?s offensive performance.

Victor Cruz was again at the top of his game, catching eight passes for 110 yards. Everyone else was efficient enough in helping the Giants get the win.

All the focus this week in the Giants-Packers game has been on the fact that the Giants? defense will not have to face Aaron Rodgers ? arguably the best player at his position in the game.

But that doesn?t mean that the offense can take a back seat and simply rely on the defense to get stops. The defense has been great in the Giants? three-game winning streak, but now it?s time for the offense to do its share.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride met the media on Thursday to discuss the state of his offense. Of course, he was very pleased with Andre Brown?s performance against the Raiders.

Kevin Gilbride said on Thursday that he wasn?t sure how Andre Brown would factor into Sunday?s game against the Oakland Raiders.

Well, let?s just say he was factor?a huge factor at that.

Brown rushed a career-high 30 times for a career-high 115 yards in the Giants? 24-20 win over the Raiders.

The Giants will have a logjam in the backfield Sunday when the team hosts the Oakland Raiders, but that could wind up being a good thing.

Andre Brown is set to make his return coming off a broken left leg, and the timing is great, since David Wilson has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said that Brown might not be physically capable of shouldering the entire load at this point, but even so, he?s expecting Brown to contribute in any way possible, especially as a pass blocker.

The one unit where the entire analysis centers on just one guy is quarterback.

By his standards, Eli Manning would tell you that he has had a sub-par season. Right from his very first pass of the year that was intercepted by DeMarcus Ware, it?s been a very rough first half for the two-time Super Bowl MVP.

He?s currently leading the NFL with 15 interceptions ? not exactly the stat you want to lead. But granted, some of those were the result of receivers running bad routes, and some were literally just bad luck.

A win streak is a win streak, but again, the Giants have plenty to work on offensively. Luckily it?s been the defense that has carried the team to two straight wins.

When looking at the box score of this game, you?d probably think that the Giants put together some impressive offensive drives.

Eli Manning completed 25 passes for 246 yards and didn?t turn the ball over for the second straight week. Two of his receivers ? Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks ? each caught seven passes. And Peyton Hillis ran for 70 yards on 20 carries.

Let?s start off by saying that it is great that the Giants finally got into the win column.

But let?s be brutally honest: It was anything but pretty.

The Giants missed plenty of opportunities on offense in their 23-7 win Monday night over the Minnesota Vikings. This really could have been a 44-7 game, but again, for the struggling Giants, a win?s a win.

Finally, the Giants played a relevant fourth quarter. But even though it was a close game right down the wire, the outcome remained the same for the Giants as they fall to an unthinkable 0-6 with a 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Sure, Eli Manning?s two interceptions early were brutal, ugly and right on par with how he has been playing all season. He was picked off on two of his first five passes.

But Manning rebounded nicely to put the Giants in a position to orchestrate a game-winning drive.

Giants? offseason coordinator Kevin Gilbride was back at the drawing board this week, desperately trying to get his offensive unit going.

He said it?s been extremely challenging so far but that he and his guys will keep plugging away until something works.

?I think the thing that has been encouraging, yet disappointing, is you see glimpses, so you say we have a shot here,? Gilbride said. ?We?re just not stringing enough of them together and that?s what we have to get better at. That?s that consistency thing and that?s where if you can keep doing the same things over and over, you?re going to limit or reduce the number of errors and you have a much better chance of stringing together those eight to 10-play drives that have been very characteristic of us, but not this year.?

The Giants hope to get into the win column Sunday at 1 p.m. when they host the Philadelphia Eagles, who have dropped three straight games after an opening week win.

The Giants pounded the Eagles 42-7 in Week 17 last season, but that game had no real meaning for either side. However, Sunday?s game has huge implications for two teams desperately trying to stay alive in a weak NFC East.

Coming into Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs had yet to turn the ball over. Three games, three wins and zero turnovers; for a reinvigorated and restructured?Kansas City team that has done a complete 180 degree turn from disastrous season just a year ago in which they finished 2-14.

The Giants were looking to bounce back from a 38-0 loss against the Carolina Panthers last week and?attempting to win their first game of the season?to?avoid starting?0-4 for the first time since 1987.

Three Kansas City turnovers, only one Eli Manning interception, 62 yards for Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles and 164 yards, plus a little salsa dance for Giants WR Victor Cruz...all signs would point to Big Blue's first win of the season; but looks can be deceiving.

Giants? offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride says his offensive line ? as well as his entire offensive unit ? has been hard at work this week.

But that doesn?t automatically mean the Giants? offense will show up Sunday in Kansas City against the Chiefs.

The Giants offense has been a mess to begin the 2013 season. They looked anemic in the preseason and their lackluster performance has carried over into the regular season.

The Giants offensive problems haven't appeared over night and they won't be solved as quickly either. The offense has been on a decline since Eli's 4,900+ yard passing season. A season in which the Giants had the second-to-last ranked rush offense and won a Super Bowl. Manning and the Giants went through their usual mid-season slump and had to open up the playbook to overcome some of the teams other deficiencies. Even then, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride could hardly keep pace with his play calling. Eli Manning and the Giants consistently took the play clock down under :05. The playmaking of Victor Cruz and a healthy Hakeem Nicks made that offense special, not the play selection of Gilbride.

Gilbride's play calling has been stale since after the Giants first Super Bowl victory with QB Eli Manning. That playbook hasn't changed much since Gilbride was coaching in the 1980's, but the NFL has.

Not much can be said about the offensive production of the Giants on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. The scoreboard spoke for itself yesterday, embarrassed and off to their first 0-3 start since 1996; the Giants were routed by the Panthers by a final score 38-0.

The offense was non-existent throughout the entire game and more importantly, the offensive line left Eli Manning out to dry, as the Carolina defense was able to take Manning down seven times. LT Will Beatty was beat numerous times on the line, and gave up two sacks to Panthers DE Greg Hardy in the first two series.

The Giants defense made sure that Peyton Manning did not have another record setting week through the air and for much of the game, a victory was within reach. One thing the Giants could not do, was figure out the balancing act by the Denver Broncos offense.

During the much anticipated Manning Bowl III,?we saw the elder brother, Peyton, run his no-huddle offense to near perfection not only with the passing attack, but also on the ground. Peyton finished with 307 yards with two touchdowns, while Broncos' RB Knowshon Moreno carried the ball 13 times for 93 yards and reached the end zone twice.

More importantly, the Giants defensive line could not force any pressure on Manning and finished the game without a single sack. DE's Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul were basically invisible on the field and behind Manning's quick offensive approach, the Giants defense was confused, leaving receivers wide open at times.?Too much time and too many options?allowed Manning to pick apart?Big Blue's defense.

One thing the Giants and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell?are doing to prepare, as they welcome?the Broncos and Eli's older brother?to MetLife Stadium for Big Blue's home opener, is study the team's past matchup?with P. Manning in 2010?when he suited up for the Indianapolis Colts.

After last weekend?s performance in Dallas, not much more could go wrong for the Giants. But offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride hopes the team can improve on the mistakes that cost them an opening-week loss.

The problem is that this week, Eli Manning will be going up against his older brother Peyton, who is fresh off a game in which he threw seven touchdown passes.

However, that is for the defense to worry about. The Giants? offense has plenty more to be concerned with than Peyton Manning?s performance.

The Giants? undefeated streak at the new Cowboys Stadium eventually had to come to an end, but no one thought it would have ended in this fashion.

The Giants turned the ball over six times en route to an extremely frustrating 36-31 loss Sunday night to the Cowboys. Dallas scored 17 points off Giants? turnovers.

For the offense in the preseason, the two main questions involved running back David Wilson adapting to a starting role and the offensive line trying to work through a multitude of injuries.

Giants? offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride is taking a wait-and-see approach to Sunday night?s opening season matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

Sure, the offense has plenty to work on after an inconsistent preseason, but Gilbride wants to see his players in meaningful game action to see how they respond.

He is very excited about what second-year running back David Wilson brings to the table in a starting role. With Andre Brown out until at least midseason, Wilson will be the go-to guy in the backfield.

All offseason and preseason, we?ve heard that the Giants will have one of the NFL?s best offenses.

On paper, I?d have to agree.

A quarterback with two Super Bowl M.V.P. awards. Two explosive and dynamic wide receivers. An up-and-coming talented receiver. A running back with blazing speed. Another power running back. And a tight end who led his team last year in receptions.

Heading into training camp, one of the themes of the 2013 New York Giants has been the upcoming reliance on a few inexperienced players to significantly contribute on both sides of the ball.

On offense in particular ? looking past Eli Manning, Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz of course ? a few young guns will be looked upon to shoulder the load.

And offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride is confident that these young guns will come through.

Assume for a second that the Giants work out a long-term extension for star wideout Victor Cruz.

And also assume that Hakeem Nicks can stay healthy for an entire season ? a big assumption certainly.

But if the above scenarios occur coupled with new roles and additions, the Giants could have one of the top receiving corps in the NFL next season.

Bring on David Wilson!

With the recent release of workhorse running back Ahmad Bradshaw, Wilson is expected to be the lead dog in the backfield in 2013.

The rookie came on strong late in the season and bounced back nicely from his opening night fumble on the national stage. But now that Bradshaw is gone, the Giants will have to be a little more patient with Wilson as he continues his development.

Just because the Giants? defense had glaring holes this season doesn?t mean that Big Blue?s offense has been completely exonerated for the team?s failure to make the playoffs.

The offense was inconsistent all season, sometimes putting up 35-plus points and other times getting shutout.

Based on the defensive needs of the team, the Giants? offense will likely feature many of the same cast of characters for the 2013 season.

Halfway through the 2012 season, the New York Football Giants were 6-2 and held a 2.5-game lead in the NFC East.

Even with the tough upcoming schedule, that lead appeared to be safe, with both the Cowboys and Redskins struggling and Eagles already out of contention.

But at the same time the Giants hit a cold spell before their bye week, the Redskins proceeded to get hot, and the rest is history.

The season is over, and the Giants have no one to blame for missing the playoffs than themselves.

Therefore, looking at how this team will retool heading into 2013, it may be difficult for a personnel standpoint to determine who stays and who goes.

If everyone played to their potential consistently, the Giants would be preparing for a playoff matchup today, not cleaning out their lockers.

Fourth Quarter

- 3rd downs are easy for the Ravens today. They could take a knee on the first two plays of each drive and still convert easily. This giants defense is a joke and they've lost all f what made them champions last season.

- The Ravens settle for a FG but take 6 minutes off of the clock with that drive. Their lead is now 23 points and the Giants must hope for a miracle collapse.

Two of the NFL?s top quarterbacks will square off Sunday in Atlanta: Eli Manning and Matt Ryan. Both players addressed the media in anticipation of the game.

Manning acknowledged that the Falcons are a tough team to beat at home, having won 10 straight in their own building.

?I think it just starts with just they?re a good team and so they do a good job of making plays and being sharp,? Manning said. ?Their offense seems like it does a lot of changing plays and getting into the right calls based on the defense and of course anytime they can be loud and show you different looks on the defensive side and make it difficult for the quarterback to change protection and those types of things puts them in any advantage.?

Eli Manning addressed the media Thursday to discuss his team?s outlook heading into the Monday showdown with the Washington Redskins.

He said that the team needs to protect the football, since the Redskins do a good job in creating turnovers.

?I had two turnovers last time in the game so we need to fix that,? Manning said. ?I thought we were very good at third-down last time. I thought we were pretty good in the red zone getting touchdowns. I thought we played pretty well most of the game, except for those two turnovers.?
