However what I'm ready Sparage welcome to countdown to kick up -- by Verizon official wireless service provider. Of the NFL -- they were talking about the Giants with rob barking out the New York Daily News and -- the defense took a big step backwards last year allowing forty plus points in five games. They brought in -- -- as the new defensive coordinator from what you've seen so far can he fix the defense. You know like -- you will be an end his career in sport they're really probably don't -- you actual scheming and calling the defense. What -- he has isolated Bill Sheridan target and that's seemingly healthy players. We think back to last year. You look at the all the guys they brought in -- you know personal victory created Chris Canty Michael -- Rocky Bernard. Were completely hurt almost the entire scheme is going to be a couple of got hurt actual -- -- got hurt. Because regular TV muted began and -- you go up and down the line guys -- they're having. Injury that required surgery in this time or just has you know yeah it -- and bruises they've had them playing a sub par -- -- -- -- year. He really submarine everything -- shared was trying to do so he seemed to be healthy right now -- -- Right away is defense will be better the second reason maybe it's even more important. You've -- -- believe it'll be really lost faith in Bill Sheridan or the year went on and very fueled rally that he believed that he is going to be aggressive be considered in the BA. More player friendly coach and energized and all the deal like that had been knocked sucked out of the the end of last year. Seemed to be Beckett and I think that the good day. Type of big things expected from that Giants. Is that how the running game the key to the team's success in 2010. Yeah I mean I think they'd probably get real easy pick speed -- they could stop people they do you have the passing game too. Still wind can -- very dearly. They would like to run the ball a lot better than they did last year mean it'll help you being -- you'll take pressure off the deep ethical it takes pressure. All of Eli Manning got -- air I think last year. You'd never really -- the -- -- portrayed in part because of injury kicker. Or live -- figured he marked graduate. Probably pull your -- -- your right ankle -- -- you'll hurt as well so. Help will be important error but you know it -- healthy he's strong theoretically strong. Helpful rushing attack in you know they've they've -- explosive guy Mark Brown gradually got a guy and Brandon Jacobs who should be able to push. Well I'll little better than he has sort of not too worried about it -- it didn't keep everybody on field. Well -- you mentioned Eli Manning he's coming off his best statistical season. What are realistic expectations for Eli this year. I would think you can more what you saw last year is sort of ironic -- pairing he had his. -- feared statistically in what might have been one of the most disappointing years for the Giants during his career. You know he's proven he could win and everybody could Haymarket more -- more about he puts up good numbers give them more and they don't win so I'm a big maybe everybody should take collection at the numbers aren't so important. What he is capable of putting them up but he could be very accurate he can pull out of part of the Pope a lot of yards and with this. Keep in the first receiving corps I think you'll definitely see more experience. Ideally they probably don't want to throw report go to yard but he certainly add and not yet figured to -- you'll take a step up into the crystal clear that put him with. You know -- -- cornerback -- not quite his brother Tom Brady injured -- it's certainly did not like below. Right up there are out -- finalists talk about the head coach -- could be a Make or Break is for Tom Coughlin. Do you think he can leave this team back to the post season and possibly the Super Bowl. You know I actually thought this could be a Make or Break season for him and not I had my ballclub that's that's great like John Barrett they're called early -- training camp began. He's -- it could -- -- Tom Coughlin is not on the hot seat you know obviously he's continued retreat to a fourteen disaster for twelve. -- Erik absolutely -- stretch last year. He might be forced to make a coaching change -- John Mara believed and Tom Coughlin believes he's the right man to lead them. In the future it will the president didn't hear that -- -- -- it became bigger evident on a couple of will look at Kirk. Get an embarrassment I don't think he will hard it will. Q anything that would jeopardize the long term stability of the franchise I think like John -- golf or visit WW FA PP PP get them back. To the playoffs I think that he probably would have last year in any count. All the injuries go up and LO think they went through particularly when he -- here could bigoted after the war the politics elephant that they're there who could help. I definitely see this team being you know nine Penn league team and definitely be a contender -- -- -- Ralph thanks so much for being with us.
