Osi Umenyiora doesn’t know where he’ll be next year, but he knows what he just went through this year. Umenyiora thinks the Giants were average at best in 2012, and that it wasn’t just the pass rush that failed. What had been a trademark late season rally, the Giants faded badly down the stretch and Umenyiora believes wholesale changes are needed.   “Where are they going to make the changes is the question,” Umenyiora said, via Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. “There is no individual, there is no aspect of the team this year that stood out. People want to just talk about the pass rush. OK, well maybe we didn’t get 50 sacks like we did last year, but was the offense playing well? Was the special teamns playing well? Like where? There was nowhere that was up to par, that was up to the standard that we set last year. So if they’re going to be making changes, it has to be wholesale changes, it has to be changes for everybody, because nobody played above average this year.” On if he will be back next year: "I'm just happy with the things that I've done here, and I'm happy with the things that I've accomplished here. I'm happy with the things that this team has done here," he said. "If it does in fact turn out to be my last game (with the Giants), then it has been a wonderful, wonderful ride. And I'm just going to walk around in New York with my head held high because it's just been a wonderful accomplishment playing for this organization and being able to do some of the things that we accomplished here as a team."   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
