Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
B-
Manning is on the downside and its possible that Jones could start at the end of the year once the team is out of playoff contention.
Running Backs
A
Barkely is already among the best backs in the league and Gallman and Pierce are solid depth
Protection & Blocking
C-
Solder and Zeitler are god. The rest of the line I question.
Receiving
C
Obviousy they take a step back here but Engram should emerge this season.

Skills Analysis Notes
The Giants need another receiver or two in their rotation and 3-4 young offensive linemen to develop.
Defense
Position
Defensive Line
C
Lawrence should be a force eventually but probably not this year.

Ogletree and Alexander are very good. The rest are borderline journeymen types.
Defensive Backs

Strength of their defense and best overall unit on the team.

Overall Coaching / School Analysis
Shurmer was ok, not great. He deserves to get through this transitional year with a roster that is better suited to being in the NFL.

Analysis
This roster isn't really an NFL caliber roster. There are huge gaps that might be covered by Barkely and an aggressive turnover based defensive backfield on occasion but its tough to see more than a few wins for the Giants.
Last season, did the team

Expectations/ Outlook
I expect the Giants to be one of the worst teams in the NFL this season.
