What are the G-Men doing at #2?

The only thing I will add is, that if the Giants are going to follow Dallas example and commit to a run first attack, to take advantage of teams having loaded up on weak run defenders, players who are pass defender first and a real liability against the run, then they could have a lot more success with Eli at QB than what Dallas has at QB. A running attack can negate a weak LT and like Dallas did 2 years ago, surprise the NFL with its offense.

We could be watching a changing of the guard in the NFL, from defenses totally committed to stopping the pass to offenses that have turned to running the ball, to attack the weakness of modern defenses.  The more successful these types of offense become, the more teams that will switch to a running attack and IMO, the Giants will have one of the great RB's to attempt it.

It is going to be an interesting few years to watch to see if the passing era is finally coming to an end.

I don't think its a changing of the guard. We just haven't seen the next Brady, Peyton Manning, or Aaron Rodgers emerge. 

Even during all of this heavy passing, there have still been plenty of successful running teams. The Ravens during the Ray Lewis era, the Seahawks, the Steelers, 49ers during Harbaugh's short stint, the Giants, the recent Cowboys, and on and on. 

But, these teams didn't rely on a generational talent at RB (except current cowboys) but often times more of a 1-2 punch system. It's just not realistic these days to expect an offense to focus on a single star RB for any period of time and expect for that player to hold up year after year.
