an opposing team's scout sizes up the Giants

"He showed some good signs last I year with his drop and his throwing motion, but I question whether Kerry Collins is accurate enough to be an upper-tier NFL quarterback....

I don't think the Giants have even one very good player on their offensive line. Lomas Brown at left tackle at his age is a huge risk. He's slowing down, and he's not the run-blocker the Giants need. This isn't a line of mashers. The Giants need to get Ron Dayne the support up front that the same kind of back, Jerome Bettis, has had in Pittsburgh....

The Defensive front seven is the strength of their team. Michael Strahan will be better this year. Watching him last year, he looked like he was never healthy, and our reports say he's had a great off-season. They need him desperately. Jessie Armstead's their best player, hands down—strong and fast, and the type of warrior Lawrence Taylor was—and he'll be helped by having Mike Barrow take some pressure off him....

I'm not high on their secondary. I have no idea if Jason Sehorn can play a full I season at a high level. No one does."
