the biggest change is the OLine which has been amazing in protecting Eli. Shockey is seeing single man coverage because of Plaxico, Tiki is still Tiki, Toomer is over the hill but vs 2nd tier CBs can make some plays, and Jacobs keeps the drives going. Throw in the fact that their secondary is goign to give up pts means the offense should be throwing. Not to mention even when they are leading they are not a power run, control the clock driving team, they will throw regardless.
i don't even own any Giants but as a diehard this is fun!
I think you hit on a ton of great points. As much as it pains me to praise a division rival, the Giants took this off-season and completely revamped their offense. They've got great players for nearly every sitution, save maybe trips or quad WRs. But even then, they've got a ton of young prospects behind Toomer ready to step up.
If they can do half as much of an improvement to their defense in the next off-season they become a very serious superbowl contender, but right now, I think the offense is pretty much set for years to come, the defense needs to come around now.
