New York Giants Will Look Different On Offense In 2013

+Read full article

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

There’s been a lot of talk about how the New York Giants will be making “wholesale changes” to their defense, but their offense may look different come kickoff 2013, as well. The Giants have some decisions to make on defense, but don’t overlook their offensive decisions either. Let’s take a look.

I think backup quarterback David Carr will be back. As long as the Giants are running the same system, Carr knows it inside and out and he’s a nice insurance policy on Eli Manning. On the offensive line, I think Will Beatty and Kevin Boothe will be back. Sean Locklear is a maybe depending on how his recovery is going from his knee injury. I can see David Diehl being let go to help provide some cap relief.

At the skill positions, Andre Brown is a restricted free agent, and it will be interesting to see if another team gives him a big offer. Ryan Torain and Kregg Lumpkin probably won’t be back. At receiver, it’s a matter of when Victor Cruz is signed to a nice contract. I don’t see Ramses Barden being brought back. Domenik Hixon is a wild card. He gives some depth on punt returns, but could a team offer him more? Maybe. At tight end, I don’t see Travis Beckum being brought back. Bear Pascoe probably will. Then there’s Martellus Bennett. Bennett was a nice signing by Jerry Reese and it would be great for Manning to have the same starting tight end in back to back years, but another team could give him more.

Kicker Lawrence Tynes is also a free agent, and even though he struggled towards the end of the season, he was automatic early on and has been reliable. I think he should be and will be brought back.

The Giants no doubt will look different next year. It’s not just the defense, it will be the offense too.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
