Editor's note: Tuesday through Friday during Super Bowl week, Scouts Inc. will tackle a key element of the Giants-Patriots matchup from a coaching perspective. Today, Gary Horton and Matt Williamson examine New York's wide receivers -- how they should attack New England's defense and what, if anything, the Pats' suspect secondary can do to combat them.

New York will not abandon the run against the Patriots, but it will become very tempting to just put this game on Eli Manning's shoulders and ask him to throw all over the suspect New England secondary.
