Are Giants a hard team to predict?

With Training Camp rapidly approaching for all 32 NFL teams, the writing staff at has been hard at work predicting 32 outcomes for the 2014 season.

However, the New York Giants - with over 40 new faces reporting on Monday, as well as a new offense led by Ben McAdoo - are proving to be one of the toughest teams to predict.

Dan Hanzus believes the Giants are one of the hardest teams to read heading into the 2014 season.

"If anybody tells you they know what to expect from the New York Giants this season, they're lying liars with deep character flaws. Big Blue is the NFC's true wild card. An 11-5 finish wouldn't shock me; then again, neither would a 5-11 campaign.

"Much of this goes back to Eli Manning," Hanzus continued, "who is easily the most unpredictable quarterback of his generation. Manning has some nice weapons -- including first-round pick Odell Beckham at receiver -- and the defense will be better, especially that retooled secondary. But Eli is the key. How he adapts to the scheme implemented by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo will be the major subplot to watch."

Charley Casserly knows the Giants have championship leaders in Head Coach Tom Coughlin and Quarterback Eli Manning, but sited a slew of questions that remain unanswered as Training Camp is set to begin.

"The offensive staff has been almost completely turned over. How will Manning adjust to the new scheme? Will the offensive line -- especially Will Beatty -- be better? What kind of impact can rookie Odell Beckham have as a receiver/kick returner? Do the Giants have a tight end? What about their running game? As for the defense, can end Jason Pierre-Paul resume his Pro Bowl ways? How will the line perform without Justin Tuck and Linval Joseph? What will be the impact of veteran leader Jon Beason's offseason injury?"

What do you think Giants fans? Can you predict the 2014 season for the new-look Giants?
