The Redskins aren’t the only team in the NFC East that is having a tough time adjusting to a new offense. The New York Giants first team offense has produced just 21 points through their first four preseason games. Eli Manning, 12-of-21 for 188 yards and one touchdown, has looked painfully uncomfortable at times in Ben McAdoo’s offense.
“I think everybody knows what to do, but just the pace it needs to be done,” Manning told the New York Post. “You want everything done precisely, so every day we’re trying to get better at that. We need to be corrected on some things and do things more efficiently, so we’re getting there, we’re making smalls steps, but we’re probably not all the way where we need to be.’
As offensive coordinator, McAdoo is taking a more direct approach yelling “Make a [expletive] play,’’ after calling the execution on one play during Monday’s practice. [expletive] bull----.”
This is unchartered territory for Manning who is in a new offense for the first time since his rookie season. On top of that the Giants are working with a lot of new faces along the offensive line. And we still haven’t seen much from wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., the 12th pick in the last NFL draft, who has battled hamstring issues throughout training camp. The Giants have missed the playoffs the last two seasons but head coach Tom Coughlin isn’t hitting the panic button just yet, telling the NYdailynews. “The only thing that matters is the regular season.”
