The old adage is that “defense wins championships.” But more and more, that sounds like a cliché being echoed by a coach, analyst or fan intent on living in the past.
Nowadays, offense makes the difference; at least most of the time. Looking for proof? Take a look at the teams that made the playoffs last season.
The 12 teams who made the postseason all finished in the top-18...
After a season where the running back position was pretty much improvised on the fly, the Giants will surely want to have more of a set plan to begin 2014.
The signing of Rashad Jennings and the re-signing of Peyton Hillis gives the position some clarity, even with the health of David Wilson being uncertain right now. Jennings should be the starter due to how he was effective...
New York Giants left tackle Will Beatty told reporters on Tuesday that he’s unsure if he’ll be ready for week one of the regular season after suffering a season ending leg and knee injury last season.
LT Will Beatty (leg, knee) said he's "past the doctor's expectations" in his rehab, but still can't say if he'll be ready by Opening Day.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants are unsure if they’re going to pick up the fifth-year option of cornerback Prince Amukamara.
A team source says Giants are still undecided about Amukamara's option. Likely won't decide until next week.

I think Amukamara is getting better each year...
New York Giants guard Chris Snee is close to being 100% healthy and everything is lining up for him to see considerable action in the team's offseason program.
Snee, who had hip surgery in 2013 and elbow surgery earlier this offseason, will be in attendance on the first day.
According to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News, Snee is ready to bounce back from last season...
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning explained to reporters on Tuesday why he waited to undergo arthroscopic ankle surgery.
“I started off my training, my running and I just didn’t think it was healing correctly,” said Manning via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. I got some more MRIs. I talked to Dr. Anderson in Charlotte for a good while and developed a plan...

Today we’ll study a very important draft in Giants’ history: the 2007 NFL Draft.
This draft was very important for the New York Giants since seven out of the eight rookies would see significant, starting and playing time during the Giants’ Super Bowl XLII run.
2007 Giants’ Draft Picks:
Round 1, Pick No. 20: Aaron Ross, DB, Texas
Round 2, Pick No. 51: Steve Smith, WR, USC...
The New York Giants’ secondary was a weak spot in 2013, so general manager Jerry Reese revamped the unit in free agency this offseason.
Reese signed former Broncos’ corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and former Seahawks’ corner Walter Thurmond to bolster the unit. Thurmond, the slot corner in Seattle’s “Legion of Boom”, is already bringing that cocky attitude to Big Blue...
Walter Thurmond is now a member of the New York Giants and it looks like he brought some of the Seahawks bravado right along with him.
As the Giants kicked off the start of their OTA’s, Thurmond let it be known that Giants have a chance to have a really great secondary and”he was the best slot cornerback in the league.”
More from CB Walt Thurmond: "I'm the best slot...
The Giants have had an unusually busy offseason and even the team itself will need a bit of an adjustment period.
To say that the Giants have diverted from their usual offseason playbook would be an understatement. After years of spending free agency mostly re-signing their own guys and developing talent in-house, this offseason the Giants were aggressive, bringing in 15 new...
Robert Ayers was a bust as the 18th overall pick in 2009 because he never developed beyond being a solid rotational player, but he’s still a solid rotational player and a good pickup here for a Giants team that had big needs on the defensive line following some off-season losses. He had his best season in his contract year in 2013, when he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 14th...
Entering the 2014 season Eli Manning says he has no concerns about his ankle. The New York Giants quarterback spoke about his ankle on Tuesday to reporters and again said there was nothing to be worried about.

Manning expects to be ready...
New York Giants cornerback Walter Thurmond told reporters on Tuesday that he believes he’s the best slot corner in the NFL and that the Giants could have a better trio of corners than his former team, the Seahawks.
