I really only have 2 concerns for the Giants this season:

1. Perry Fewell.

2. Oline.


If Fewell utilizes our talents on defense the right way, and if our oline can find the fountain of youth, I think the Giants are a legit SB contender.

If not, then we're destined for another 8-8 season.


Health is another issue of course. But that's always an issue.

Did you really just play that card?

Arizona has picked in the top ten 6 times since 2000.

6 years, but I can understand why you would view team failure in terms of decades ;)

What's LOL about that? They were lucky? Or did they lose some key players this off-season and stand pat?

I don't think the Jets are improved, and if anything I could make arguements they are now worse off. Getting rid of Thomas Jones, Leon Washington and Alan Faneca and replacing them with LT, Joe McKnight and Vladimir Ducasse seems like a sizeable downgrade at each spot, and this is a team who will need to lean on the run game until Sanchez shows he can win games with his arm. I also don't like the potential chemistry problems they could have.

The Dolphins did have a good offseason but I feel they vastly overpaid for Dansby and slightly overpaid for Marshall. My worries for them are, like the Pats who is going to rush the passer? Cameron Wake and Koa Misi seem to be the starters as of now. Who is going to play NT? Losing Merling will hurt them also but the pick of Odrick should offset that. I do think their offense will be good though. I would worry way more about Miami than the Jets.
So your ratings are partly taking into account your concern about the Dolphins finances, and science/chemistry for the Jets?
Any team can have personality conflicts. And most do have some. To me, it seems Rex Ryan is a good coach at dealing with that crap. But I hope you're right at least on October 31st.

No I was just stating that the Dolphins overpaid for both players. I went further into my worries about the Dolphins later in the post.

As for the Jets I think my point still stands. They let go of two veteran leaders in the lockerroom in Faneca and Jones. Faneca I don't mind but they let Jones go because they didn't want to pay him the money he was looking for but then bring in LT for practically the same money. I'd be willing to bet anything LT doesn't come close to 1400yds this year. They have cornerstones of that franchise looking for their well-deserved paychecks but yet they are bringing in guys like Cromartie, Holmes, LT etc. That can't be a good thing for them when they aren't getting their contracts.

I think Rex Ryan is a good fit for the attitude this team has but with him running his mouth, what happens if they start 0-3 for example. It's all good when they're winning but when it gets tough?

I also have concerns with the Dolphins.
Im not entirely sold on Chad Henne yet.
Their backs are incredibly fragile and can't be depended on for a whole season.
The defense has a lot of question marks. Will Starks make a smooth transition to NT? Is Cam Wake the real deal? If not, who do they have to rush the passer?

Too many questions for me on this team, especially in a division with two other powers. I don't see them making the playoffs.

I'd be much happier with our off season if we even attemted to address the pass rushing situation and somehow got Mankins to not act like a D bag. We had a good off season, but nothing out of the ordinary, its not like 2007 where every day I hopped online I saw some other big name signing with us.
