Ben McAdoo and trick plays

simgiant : 9/10/2017 9:27 am
With Tom Coughlin we always knew that trick plays were not happening. I can't remember a trick play last year but you guys think McAdoo might pull one this year with a little more confidence after a year of coaching? If I had to bet I would say no, he strikes me as a no nonsense win the old fashioned way type of guy. What do you guys think?
I'm adding a link of some successful NFL fake punts of the last few years, none by the giants.

trick plays. In the right field position, it is very effective.

No fake field goals. Too low percentage.

A lot of offensive trick plays have to start with the QB under center. We don't see that formation often lately.
However, it would be interesting to see some unusual offensive formations. Not too crazy but maybe stacked "I" with Ellison and Smith ahead of the RB.

Maybe some formation that looks like a strong run right formation where the left side is more of a pass formation.
