Report: Giants to Focus More On Offense

A report from Pro Football Weekly states that the Giants are looking to focus more on offense, after spending the first part of the offseason on the defensive side:

Now that the team has filled some defensive needs with its three major free-agent signings, it will turn its attention to the offensive side of the ball. The Giants clearly lacked a big-play threat down the stretch and in the playoff loss to the Eagles and still would lack that, assuming WR Plaxico Burress doesn’t play for the team this coming season. His trial, which is set for March 31, probably puts the team in a holding pattern for any major moves at that position, such as trading for Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin or signing a free agent such as Torry Holt. But there are other positions the team would like to upgrade, including offensive tackle and tight end, and you can’t rule out the team drafting a quarterback, even if the top two spots are very much secure with Eli Manning and David Carr. Tackle stands as a likely draft target, considering Kareem McKenzie’s age (he turns 30 in May) and back troubles and the fact that David Diehl probably could transition well to guard in the next year or two and be a better fit.

One would have to agree with their assertions; the defense is rock solid, but if the Giants want to win a World Championship, they will have to shore up some offensive positions.
