So I think that the GMen should go 9-7 just missing a playoff spot which either Dallas and New Orleans should grab but have a pretty decent season.
They will not beat any big name teams like always and start of the season great but finish pretty horrible. It should overall be a pretty good season for the Giants though and they may be able to sneak into the playoffs.
I think they should be able to beat the Cowboys at home the last week though because they are playing at home and the Cowboys will probably be playoff bound by then and do not really care about that game.
Good Luck to whoever takes this.

I think you are mostly correct in them being on the edge of playoffs as they usually are. I can actually even see the schedule going down this way. However, with the possibility of no Kevin Boss, I will take a few risks. Here are my differences with what you have chosen and why.
Week 4: @ Arizona. (Loss)
I say they will lose to Arizona because I believe that Kolb will be getting in sync with the recieving Core and it will be a road game for the GMen so there is that.
Week 14 @ Dallas. (Win)
I don't see Dallas doing well again this year. Marion Barber was really unappreciated and will be sorely missed. Williams and Hurd leaving will hurt Dallas as well (though it doesn't necessarily deplete the WR corps - still have austin, bryant, and TE Witten). And the dallas defense has been terrible last year and showed similar signs the year before towards the end of the season heading into the playoffs. Depending on the health of newman, and jenkins (Dallas CB's) Mario Manningham will find some good opportunities match-up wise.
Not a lot of changes, cuz I agree with most of what you said. Just love debating football. Thanks for popping my Throwdown cherry. :) Your move.

Week 4: @ Arizona
Ok so I am sorry but why does everybody think that Kolb is god. In Philadelphia he had a very talented team and still threw 7 picks and 7 TD's in 7 Games. He also fumbled 6 times and the Giants led the league in forced fumbles last year.
Now Kolb has a worst WR core and all he has is Larry Fitzgerald. He also now has no running game what so ever when he had one of the most talented young running back in the game. Kolb is only going to get worse. Arizona is going to only take a small step forward this year.
I think that this should be a easy win for the Giants if they can guard Fitzgerald decently.
Week 14: AT Dallas
Ok, Dallas may not have been great last year but now they have a top 10 QB back on their team again. Romo is still a great QB and has talent all around him to help him. He has Witten who is the best TE in the league by my standards.
They may not have much running game but they have another WR threats and they are playing at home so they have another adv. They also have Ware who has gotten to Eli Manning a lot over the years and force him to throw picks.
MTC and good luck.

Well okay, lets keep on talking Cowboys:
They are starting to get a better receiving core and already have a great QB in Romo. The Giants defense is good because they are good at getting forced fumbles against running teams. The Cowboys do not run and the Giants have never been good at guarding Cowboys receivers.
The Cowboys were also 7th in the league in INT's while Eli Manning threw the most INT's out of every QB in the NFL last year. That means that there should be at least one INT that game.
To get back to the Cardinals:
I know they made some key pickups this offseason but they still have absolutely mediocre passing game and they have no running game. They lost their second best WR in Breaston and all they have there is Heap and Fitzgerald.
When they do run the Giants will be able to force fumbles like I was talking about earlier and when they pass if they can get pressure on Kolb then they will get INT's.
I do not think that the Cardinals are going to be as good as everybody thinks so this will be a win for the Giants
