New York Giants Prepare for Season Opener
While the New York Giants are the reigning Super Bowl champions, the team knows that they can’t be complacent.
Quarterback Eli Manning said that they know they have to improve, “we were 9-7 last year in the regular season. That’s not good enough. We’ve got to have that urgency, that consistency, throughout the whole season”.
The New York Giants were mediocre for most of last season, but they then achieved victories over the Jets and Cowboys to win the NFC East Crow. They then went on to become the first team to win the Super Bowl having finished the regular season 9 – 7.
Giants’ coach, Tom Coughlin, is not focusing on defending the title, but rather on carrying the positive feelings of last season into the new one.
The team thinks that many of the problems last season were the result of pass rusher Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora succumbing to a string of injuries.
They begin the season with a match against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium on Wednesday night.
The opening match is sure to be exciting, the Giants beat the Cowboys twice last season and they’ll be looking to continue that by opening this season with a convincing victory.
