Eli Manning will never be mistaken for Michael Vick, but he’s noticeably improved at buying time in the pocket before throwing passes.
He’s even been able to convert more first downs with his legs. PFT asked Ahmad Bradshaw for his reaction when he sees Manning take off.
“He’s had a lot of runs this year over ten yards. We don’t expect that as an offense,” Bradshaw said. “Everybody is just like, ‘Get down Eli!'”
A lot of Manning’s best improvisational plays have been tossess to Bradshaw.
“I’m the last line of defense. . . . He saves a lot of plays. I’m just there screaming his name, trying to get the ball any way I can,” Bradshaw said. “He’s been able to get out of a couple tackles and flip the ball to me.”
Manning’s ability to make people miss is why he’s a little different this year. It’s one of the reasons the Giants have to feel good about their chances Sunday. The Giants often make big plays against perfectly called defenses.
