GM Jerry Reese, who is on the hot seat depending on who you believe, will have his past two draft classes on display. RT Justin Pugh, WR Odell Beckham, Jr. DT Jonathan Hankins, LG Weston Richburg, DE Damontre Moore and LB Devon Kennard will all be in the starting lineup against the Titans this Sunday.
And, with RB Rashad Jennings dealing with a sore ankle, Andre Williams will be called upon to carry the load against Tennessee's rush defense, who rank last in the league (141.5 YPG) after 14 weeks.
Reese has been called on the fans' carpet over the dearth of talent on the Giants' roster these past two seasons. How his top draftees perform the next four weeks may likely determine his fate.
They are not alone. Free agents and other draft choices of Reese such as Rueben Randle and Larry Donnell will also be under the microscope the rest of the way. Management wants to make sure that they make make the smart decision and not the knee-jerk one when it comes to their future.
As for head coach Tom Coughlin, his departure is still being bandied about on talk radio, talking head TV and the tabloids. His record over the past two and an half seasons is poor (13-23 since the midway point of the 2012 season) and by all indicators he should be let go.
But who is responsible for this mess of a team? Reese, Coughlin or both? How about neither? The ownership will make that determination in the offseason. Someone has to go.
But keep in mind the amount of injuries the Giants have incurred the past two years. Last season, they led the league in games lost to injury by starters and are on their way to repeating this season.
In Reese's defense, he addressed the offensive line the best he could. He used his first round selection in 2013 (Pugh) and second rounder this year (Richburg) to rebuild the line. He also made the line a priority in free agency, signing Geoff Schwartz, JD Walton, Charles Brown and John Jerry.
Injuries and some subpar play have not elevated the group's overall play, however, and the need to address the line still remains a priority.
Reese also brought in new RBs, LBs, CBs and arguably the most dynamic offensive player in the game these days in Beckham, so his resume and realization to make changes is one that many in his field cannot match.
Coughlin felt he was handed a solid roster at the beginning of the season. His new offense was slow to gel but now seems to have taken hold. His QB is comfortable and there appears to be a future there.
The team has not quit on him. The message gets through and is still fresh. But, when you lose 20 players to injuries, you're fate get ultimately sealed. Through it all, the team has stayed united behind him.
"I think our players are solidly in support of each other and of what they’re trying to accomplish," Coughlin said on Thursday. "That’s the furthest thing from anybody’s mind that I can tell. The guys are very good about supporting each other, sticking together. The team concept is the key."
And the team, or what's left of it, will continue to rally behind him. But will it be enough?
