Grade the 2011 Giants!


Consider this the moment you start referring to the Super Bowl season in the past tense.

We are precisely at the midway point between the final snap in Indianapolis and the opening of the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine (also in Lucas Oil Stadium).

And once that kicks off on Feb. 22, it's all systems go for the 87th edition of the New York Giants.

That's also when the label "defending" will be slipped in front of the Super Bowl champions, and "this" season becomes "last" season. So what better time than now to look back on the 2011 campaign while it's still fresh enough in your minds.

With that said, get your red pens out (well, just your mouse will do) and hand your final grades to the team that weathered an NFL season and came out as Super Bowl champions.

OFFENSE Defining Moment: Passing game was fifth in the NFL while the team cracked the top 10 in scoring, coming in at No. 9 with 24.6 points per game.


**Defining Moment: Held the Falcons to two points in the Wild Card round and never gave up more than 20 points in the playoffs.


Defining Moment: Forcing the turnover on punt return in the NFC Championship that led to Lawrence Tynes' game-winning field goal in San Francisco.
