Odell Beckham was wrong.
Not only is the Giants offense not one of the best in the NFL, it might not be one of the top three offenses in New Jersey (I haven’t broken down any Rutgers or Montclair State tape yet).
Giants quarterback Eli Manning left the game after a sparking 1-of-7 for 6 (six!)-yard start. In two preseason games, he hasn’t completed a pass over 10 yards, or found Victor Cruz yet.
The Giants are losing 20-0 to the Colts at halftime, with both Andrew Luck and Matt Hasselbeck getting the Colts into the end zone.
If it’s any consolation, the Giants aren’t running well either, with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams combining for 34 yards on 12 attempts.
Some growing pains were to be expected with new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo installing a new system.
But this is just painful to watch.
It’s far to early to panic (we think), as the new system is being accompanied by a lot of new parts. But this group needs to show something soon.
