New York Giants 2008 Preview

By June 30, 2008

Follow me on:

Just a few short months ago, the New York Giants were capping off an unlikely run to the Super Bowl XLII championship over the heavily-favored and previously-unbeaten New England Patriots. And heading into the 2008 season, they still possess a talented roster with a nice mix of veterans and youngsters. But they play in the ultra-competitive NFC East, and just the slightest hint of complacency could cause a tumble down the standings.

Which is why head coach Tom Coughlin must keep his team focused on the field despite the distractions off the field. Future Hall of Famer Michael Strahan has retired. Plaxico Burress isn't happy with his contract. Jeremy Shockey simply isn't happy and should have been traded. And running back Ahmad Bradshaw is currently sitting behind bars.

Early signs of a Super Bowl hangover?

Only time will tell.

Feh. Giants are ready to return to the playoffs. They will be an even better team this year than last. They might have the best running game in the biz in Jacobs/Bradshaw/Ward/Droughns. Steve Smith makes that WR corps deadly. Only the Cowboys can hold a candle to them in the entire conference. See you at SuperBowl XLIII!

Unfortunately the Eagles and the Cowboys will have a lot to say about that. Doubt the Giants even make the playoffs this year. Its a whole new year and a whole new set of circumstances.

I have tried to search the web over and over!!I know it’s not that easy but…I’m searching for some way of contacting the former NFL player Marcus Allen.I know FAT CHANCE!!! But the only reason being is that my dad knew one of his relatives ,and they were really good friends.I want to get in contact with the relative more than the NFL player.So if there is anyway you could help me,It would really mean allot.
