What is the strength of the Giants?

What is the strength of the New York Giants entering the 2013 NFL season? I believe it's hard to argue that the strength of the Giants is the passing attack led by two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback Eli Manning.

Manning has a multitude of weapons, with star wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz, exciting second-year man Rueben Randle and newly-acquired tight end Brandon Myers, who caught 79 passes for the Oakland Raiders a season ago.

Strength or not, that doesn't mean there aren't questions.

Can Nicks, beset by injuries a season ago, stay healthy in what is a contract year for him? He caught only 53 passes in 2012, and the Giants need him to be a more consistent threat.

Can Victor Cruz keep producing after signing a $46 million contract?

Can Randle develop into the dynamic third receiver the Giants lacked a season ago?

Can Brandon Myers, and possibly second-year man Adrien Robinson, handle the tight end position?

In other years the answer to this question might have been the pass rush, especially from the defensive ends. The Giants, though, are a big play offense that can't win without Manning and his receivers occasionally connecting for big chunks of yardage.

Agree or disagree Giants' fans?
