AP Pro32 comments about Giants

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 11, 2012
Comments on the New York Giants by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): --- NEW YORK GIANTS (10) Chris Berman (ESPN, 4) - Game one mulligan. Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 5) - Opening night loss was a wake-up call. Their pass rush is fierce, but their secondary looks vulnerable. Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 12) - Wake-up call for the champs. Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 10) - Need to get healthy in the secondary and rookie RB David Wilson back on track. Bob Glauber (Newsday, 9) - Tom Coughlin thought his guys were ready for a big effort in their debut as Super Bowl champions. Instead, the defense came up small, and Eli Manning didn't have enough for a late rally against the Cowboys. Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 13) - Glaring holes have been exposed at cornerback and left tackle for the defending Super Bowl champions. Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 11) - Somebody forgot to tell these guys the season started. They looked listless and disinterested last week. That will change, but their needs at cornerbacks may not. They need more good ones. Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 8) - With a short week to follow Sunday's game against the Bucs, the defending champs could use a little momentum. Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 11) - The Giants got 11 days to regroup after the Cowboy loss. They have to find a way to protect their secondary with a better pass rush as well as their offensive line protecting Eli Manning better. John Lynch (Fox Sports, 4) - To be the Champ you've got to beat the Champ. Well the Champ got beat but despite concerns with a depleted secondary, the G-Men will be there at the end and don't drop too much. Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 11) - Losing to the Cowboys in sloppy fashion should serve as a wake-up call that winning a Super Bowl last season guarantees nothing this season. Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 10) - It wouldn't be a season if the Giants didn't dig themselves a hole. --- Online: http://bigstory.ap.org/NFL-Pro32 and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
