Frustration growing as Giants offense is slow to get going

Giants Camp Football AP

The Giants offense has given plenty people plenty of reason to yell at new coordinator Ben McAdoo.

But now McAdoo is doing some yelling of his own.

According to Stephen Lorenzo of the New York Daily News, McAdoo was barking at his offense in practice, demanding sharper performance than they’ve turned in so far.

You want everything done precisely, so we’re still, every day, we’re trying to get better at that,” quarterback Eli Manning said. “We need to be corrected on some things and do things more efficiently, so we’re getting there, we’re making small steps, but we’re probably not all the way where we need to be.”

Probably not. The only time the Giants offense has looked competent at all was when running a two-minute drill against the Jets, which resulted in Manning’s only touchdown pass of the preseason. While they want to use some no-huddle and keep a fast pace, they know they also need to get better in all aspects of offense.

“I think we had one run in that two-minute drill [against the Jets], so we need to run the ball more than that in a normal circumstance,” Manning said. “Hopefully we can be fast-paced and find ways to get completions and move the ball but still be able to run the ball to keep the defense not knowing what we’re going to do.”

Toward that end, Manning and the starters will get more snaps than usual in the preseason finale against the Patriots, giving them another chance to fix and offense that is sputtering so far.

    Giants look slow and dumb…just like their qb.

    Surely this can’t be any fault of Eli; after all he’s a Manning and everyone know they’re perfect

    From what I’ve seen, Jennings and Williams is a 6YPC running game.

    How about changing your play calling philosophy?

    Without an o line how can eli do anything?

    I said it before and I’ll say it again: Eli Manning is the NFL’s Sisyphus. He pushes the boulder to the top of the hill, (Super Bowl wins in 2007 and 2011) only to watch it roll back down (Multi-year regressions after Super Bowl wins.)

    It’s not a sprint. nYg will be in the hunt.

    I feel really bad for giants fans… there’s a long season ahead.

    Not as terrible as the 49’er’s offense..

  9. RexCanCoach says: Aug 26, 2014 8:07 AM

    Eli and the girls did absolutely nothing against the Jets who had zero real cornerbacks covering receivers.

    Yeah, its that bad…

    Lol at the nj giants running a OBSOLETE OFFENSE. They have managed to copy Andy Reid’ s 2010 west coast schemes and try to infuse Chip Kelly, s no huddle style. This is going to be one big North Jersey sewer pot, rat festering, dumpster fire. They do not have the right people to get the job done but it will be hilarious when Ellen throws 30+ ints. They are going to clean out the trash next season, so consider this season a failure.

    They tried this offense 30 years to late. I actually thought their old offense was pretty good and it did win two Superbowls. Maybe it’s the players? Just saying.

    If Bill goes with his second string D to start the game, this will be good work for them.

    Nassib era will begin soon.when When eli throws 3 pics i want to see who has the stones to sit him down.Our de has to win us games this year.Is it just me but everytime Eli drops back i hold my breath.My stomach cant take it anymore.If Eli throws 20 pics this season i dont want to hear but he has 2 superbowls.As a HUGE giant fan i know de played a big part in those wins and so did the running game.We didnt ask eli to do too much.If Eli gets a stud TE and A stud outside wr we would have had a shot this year but we didnt and now we have to spread the ball around.We still have a chance to get THE GUARD FROM THE NINERS BOONE.PULL THE TRIGGER REESE.THIS GUY IS A PROBOWLER

    This preseason reminds me of 2007. Many Giants fans were frustrated after the Giants let Luke Petigout leave via free agency. David Diehl did an admirable job at left tackle for many years. He is by the way a two time superbowl starting/winning left tackle.
    I guess where I am going with this is the FACT that Coughlin, Reese, Mara know what they are doing. We are not Dallas, we have a winning formula with a helluva GM. The GMEN have a plan, they’re sticking to it. In Reese I still trust. In Coughlin I know we can win and in Eli and our Defense I believe. Go G-Men!!

    Eli’s missing two things he must have: a pouch and catch, tall receiver who commands a double team, and a safety blanket TE. Add no run game, leading to no play action, then you get what you got.

    *Pitch and catch

  17. jpherling says: Aug 26, 2014 11:07 AM

    To all of you who enjoy badmouthing Eli: Why don’t you try getting in there to throw passes with a defensive lineman or linebacker breathing down your neck? Then maybe you’ll see how easy it is.

    you had me until you said eli didn’t do too much in the super bowl runs. he put the team on his back. but i will agree that he has not shown much of that in now going on three years. also, the niners will never trade a top-tier player to the giants – they’re too afraid.

    Don’t worry guys….. On the opening game you play the Lions. They aren’t known for any kind of offense that you’ll be stuck keeping up to. LOL…Good luck guys.

    “you had me until you said eli didn’t do too much in the super bowl runs. he put the team on his back.”

    Was the team on his back when he barely completed 50% of his passes against Green Bay in 2007 and the defense came up with a big pick in OT? Was the team on his back in the Super Bowl when the Giants defense held the highest scoring offense in NFL history (at that point) to 14 points? Was the team on his back when he threw the pick that should have lost the game for the Giants, only to have Assante Samuel bail him out by dropping it? Was the team on his back when Kyle Williams had two crucial fumbles in the NFC Championship Game, on in OT leading to a Tynes game winner? Was the team on his back when Wes Welker dropped a pass that hit him square in the hands, a pass that most likely would have iced the game for the Pats?

    Eli Manning is a barely average QB who has been VERY fortunate.
