WILL THE GIANTS WIN THE NFC EAST?
NFL.com’s Darren Sharper and Heath Evans were asked a question that many Giants fans have on their mind: does the team have enough offensive firepower to win the NFC East?
Sharper: ”You have two prominent wide receivers when you talk about Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. Guys that are proven play-makers so, a lot of times, that’s pretty much all you need. You add a tight end in Brandon Meyers, who played well for Oakland last year, that gives you three options. Like Tom Coughlin said, if they get that running game going, then they have a fourth option so yeah, I definitely think they have enough.”
Evans: “I’m going to say this — if RG3 is healthy for 16 games, nobody has enough to beat that boy and what they’ve got going there in D.C. But, you know, Darren hit the nail on the head. You’ve got options but you need consistent options. The ceiling for these players that he mentioned — they’re high and Victor (Cruz) has been extremely consistent. Nicks, and then you go with Ramses Barden, who had some “wow” plays, but then where’d he go a week later? You go to Rueben Randle, the young guy, they need to get him to come along. So you need weapons and they’ve got them, but they just need consistency out of those boys.” (WATCH)

“Each day we make a little bit more progress. I thought our hitting was a little better in the 9-on-7 today than it was the other day. I told the players that, so I think a blind man can tell if a 9-on-7 is right. We’re getting there, not quite there, but we’re getting there.” -Tom Coughlin
