Don't break up the New York Giants
The Giants' problems aren't all self-inflicted, but that doesn't mean there aren't questions
- Ronald Martinez/Getty ImagesThe Giants have the most difficult piece to the Super Bowl puzzle: a franchise QB.
New York Giants fans are understandably frustrated. At 7-7, the Giants are in danger of missing the playoffs for the third straight season. Their defense is lousy, tied for 28th in the NFL in yards allowed. The once-vaunted running game has stumbled, with both Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs averaging fewer than 4.0 yards per carry. And making things even more worse is the fact that the Giants are enduring another second-half collapse this season. After starting the year 6-2, they have lost four straight games and five of their past six.
If the Giants miss the playoffs for the third straight year, is it time to make some serious changes? Or can the Giants put it back together and become Super Bowl contenders in 2012?
The player talent on the roster, at least, suggests the answer to that second question is "yes."
