Eli Manning ‘nervous’ about Giants new offense
The New York Giants made some significant changes in the offseason, mainly replacing offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride with former Packers coordinator Ben McAdoo. With a new coordinator comes a new scheme, and Giants QB Eli Manning has admitted he is a bit ‘nervous’ about all of the changes.
“Yeah, it is different. You come into the season a little nervous; you just don’t have [the same comfort],’’ Manning said, via the New York Post. “You have a good feel for it, but not to where I want it to be. That’s with repetition and more plays. It’s a different feeling this time of year than in previous years. We’ve still got a lot of work to do and a lot to improve on to get comfortable, myself with my teammates and everything that goes on with being successful in an offense. I know we’ve got a lot of work to do. But we’re excited about that challenge.’’
More than the new schemes, it’s crucial that Manning just be on the same page with his receivers. Last year, there were numerous times where Manning and his teammates simply weren’t connecting, resulting in easy interceptions for the opposition, and irreversible mistakes for the team.
With so many new faces for Big Blue this year, a new offense may be the best thing for them.
