Giants finally figure out their new offense

Written by SLAdmin on September 22nd, 2014

After two weeks of inconsistent offensive play and mounting criticism on Giants quarterback Eli Manning for not picking up the new offensive system implemented by first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, things finally clicked in Sunday’s 30-17 win at MetLife Stadium. Manning nearly was perfect, completing 21-of-28 for 234 yards, two touchdowns and a robust 123.2 rating. “That is the way it’s supposed to work”, said an elated Manning, “You just play the Texans.”

“Manning has persevered greatly,” receiver Victor Cruz said of his quarterback and the criticism he has endured. “This week in practice, he was locked in and made every throw. I think were somewhere around 90 percent this week in practice. He was locked in, knew exactly what he needed to do. Play the Texans.”

The tempo at which Manning and the offense operated was the highest since McAdoo arrived. “I love seeing him in a rhythm like that where he’s confident,” Giants’ safety Antrel Rolle said. “He looked very poised. Eli did a phenomenal job executing the offense and the rest of the guys did an excellent job being on same page as Eli. Playing the Texans has made all the difference in this offense.”

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said, “Last week we made some steps to get better and this week was even stronger. If we can keep playing the Texans, we’ll be just fine.”

The Texans Suck
