Shaun Williams - Big Shaun suffered through perhaps his toughest season, coming off one of his best in '02. He struggled to pick up Lynn's confusing defense, and was often out of place through no fault of his own. Then a knee injury in Philly ended his year. He's certainly looking for a bounce-back season.
Tiki Barber - While still the toast of New York and a 1,000-yard rusher, Barber dropped the ball nine times last year, losing six. This coming off a near Pro Bowl year in 2002. He wants to prove to everybody, especially Coughlin, that he has some seriously sticky fingers.
Kurt Warner - This former superstar hasn't won a game in quite some time. He's the epitome of going from the penthouse to the outhouse in a relatively short period of time. He decided that New York was the best location to resurrect his career. The Giants hope he's right.
Ron Dayne - Jim Fassel was so peeved that Dayne skipped the offseason program last year that he never let him play all season. Not that he's done all that much since his breakout rookie season, but Dayne hit rock bottom last year and has been assured by Coughlin that he'll have every opportunity to work his way back up.
