The offense for the New York Giants was a train wreck this season.
The Giants season consisted of a stable of battered running backs and inconsistent line play while Eli Manning was an interception waiting to happen.
Head coach Tom Coughlin hopes the hiring of Ben McAdoo as the team’s new offensive coordinator helps knock some complacency out of his team.
“Here’s what I expect,” Coughlin said, via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger. “I think the players will respond to this. We’re going to try to compromise the system with what we have here. However, there will be change. And that change will be very positive and very well-received by our team and our players. And if our players are scrambling around to learn a new system – good. That’s another fire in their rear end.”
Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride announced his retirement at the end of the season leaving the Giants in need of a replacement. McAdoo will call plays for the first time with the Giants with Coughlin willing to lend a hand when necessary. McAdoo served as the quarterbacks coach for the Green Bay Packers the last two seasons under Mike McCarthy.
