Assuming those players make the team and can stay healthy through training camp, combined with the upcoming NFL draft players selected by the organization, it’ll be a totally different club coming into next season. That’s not a bad thing for the Giants, who started the season 0-6 and missed the playoffs with a 7-9 mark. Head coach Tom Coughlin agrees as it makes the organization re-focus and adds determination for the upcoming campaign.
“I said all along that the stimulation here, even for our veteran players, for Eli [Manning] to re-focus and to be energized by new, the new learning, the new presentation of material, the different terminology, the things that must be mastered before you even get out of the huddle. I think all of those things are stimulating,” Coughlin said in an interview with the team’s official website.
The Giants struggled in most facets last year, especially offensively with 29 interceptions thrown, which led the league. The coaching staff has been overhauled as well with the departure of offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. Ben McAdoo, who was the former Packers QB coach, is the new OC for the Giants.
