WAS IT A FLUKE?
For the past six months, the Giants have listened to analysts and opponents demean their Super Bowl victory by calling them lucky. Players on the 49ers and Packers have gone so far as to insinuate that they were the better team despite playoff losses to the Giants. There's only one way to prove them wrong: Do it again.
WILL THE GIANTS BE VULNERABLE TO THE PASS?
They start the season with two of their top three cornerbacks on the shelf in Terrell Thomas (IR/knee) and Prince Amukamara (ankle). With Corey Webster holding down one side, opposing quarterbacks will be sure to test starter-by-default Michael Coe early and often.
CAN DAVID WILSON REVITALIZE THE RUN GAME?
The Giants finished last in the NFL in rushing yards in 2011, a source of chagrin for many involved. Ahmad Bradshaw returns and the offensive line has a better chemistry than it did last year, but the big difference-maker could be explosive first-round pick David Wilson.
