Eli Manning to @RhettNFL/@nflnetwork on Pat Shurmur: "He tries to keep the game simple, which I enjoy. Heís not trying to make it overcomplicated & itís been great in practices & watching film with him after. We have a great relationship & are on the same page." #NYG

Eli Manning to @RhettNFL on Odell: "He wants to get back to scoring touchdowns & celebrating & having fun again. I think he misses that part of his life. ... If Odell catches an 80-yarder, we will go into an electric slide or something." (We have seen them dance. & #128514;) #NYG

I understand wanting to see more results, but what's wrong with having discussion as well. It's not as if they are inversely proportional. One has nothing to do with the other and no one will ever accuse Eli of being a big talker. The occasional quote that tells us where his head is at should be welcomed and not frowned upon or looked upon suspiciously.

Bizarre response. Albeit typical, considering the poster...

Anyway.

I've said this several times, but I think Eli is going to surprise a lot of people this year. No, he won't be 2011 Eli ever again - but I bet he has more left than a lot of fans think. I think Easy E still has some gas in that tank.
Eli knows things are different, better with the Giants this season.

you know then difference between when Eli speaks and Eli-speak. This is Eli genuinely excited about working with Shurmer and the process. If you ask me, that's a huge tell...

You probably should have thought about what you typed before hitting submit.

Criticizing a guys play, that s what fans do, questioning a guy like Eli s media s presence, not so much
I think Eli has some good years left in him.

Analysis and interpretation? First, he'll need to "research" the matter.
Is it 2011, again?  
Doomster : 6/22/2018 9:03 pm : link
The New York Giants quarterback didn't shy away when, as a Tuesday guest on "The Michael Kay Show" on ESPN New York 1050, he was asked if he is in the same class as three-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady.

"I consider myself in that class," said Manning




If he makes that statement again, can he back it up?
One.

Just one. The one and only. Since 1925. Two time NFL Champion NY Giant QB. There has been one.

There is so much wrong with this statement.

2014 and 2015 which were some of Eli's most productive seasons, show he could flourish in the west coast offensive system.

Actually you're quite wrong. The 2014 and 2015 offense was a mixture of Mac's offense and Coughlin's offense. Once Mac became HC he ran his own offense with terrible results.

No, you are wrong. McAdoo received complete control over the installization and running of his offense . Coughlin intervened on strategic decisions like going for the TD against Dallas. The QB told Jennings not to score on his own . Then when running the clock down became essential because they were only going to get s short FG, anyway, the QB ditched the ball in the end zone , stopping the clock, because he didnít want to get hit. You know, shit like that .

As far as His Excellency Ďs comments , I see we are going to the ďtoo complicatedĒ mantra, which is the default response to every system change in NFL history . The fact of the matter is when league sources commented on the Gianttsí offensive problems, like the Bengalsí DC , who spoke on the record to Collingsworth, they universally claimed that the Giants offense was too predictable , too simple .

The QB cannot move . He will no longer take a hit to give a play a chance . Heís been wearing a red pinny lately so all is well with the world . Weapons abound . Opportunities are so abundant that Giant fan sits there pumping his carrot in raw, ribald anticipation .

Then the season begins and with it the pressures designed to get right to the heart of the matter . The QB canít move nor will he take a hit .
Can't move?  
mako J : 6/23/2018 12:56 pm : link
False.

If a system requires athletic ability resembling Rodgers or Wilson to result in even league average success, it's likely a shallow system that defensive minds will figure out quickly and shut down. Furthermore, if it's a system that only flourishes when a special WR routinely takes slants to house, it's a weak system. And it's also a weak roster.

Brady, Rivers, Ryan currently and Peyton, Warner, Marino historically are/were relative statues in the pocket. These few examples and countless others have all had successful careers due to systems designed to support their strengths. The idea that Eli is less mobile inside the pocket now isn't taking into consideration many factors that directly result in the difference between a completion, a sack, or a throwaway.

It's been said time and again by people who understand the game, but so many here simply can't seem to grasp it. Judging the ability of any quarterback not named Rodgers or Wilson under last year's circumstances is foolish. Even those two would have struggled.

It takes a very special quarterback to succeed with a soft front, a depleted WR corp, a weak backfield, and a limited play designer/caller.

The beauty of the game is that it's all about team. Hopefully (health) we'll all get to see first hand what the quarterback can still accomplish with a team around him.
I'm not trolling here, but I'm confused a bit:  
DigitaLx2001 : 6/23/2018 10:54 pm : link
McAdoo ran an offense that was in 11 personnel way too much, and was predictable by all accounts that we've heard (defenses calling out the play, etc). So when Eli says this new offense is "making this simpler", what is he really talking about?

McAddo was crap, and I believe in Shurmur (as much as someone can without seeing him run our team yet)... but can someone take a stab at explaining what Eli was saying from an X's and O's perspective? Or is it literally just generic Eli-speak that really isn't saying much of anything? (i.e. trying to talk up his new coach without jabbing his old one)
DigitaLx2001  
arniefez : 6/23/2018 11:18 pm : link
My guess and it's just a guess is Eli is talking about the terminology, the language of calling plays and formations. Easier for everyone to be on the same page. At least that's my guess and hope.
It's far more likely that Eli is just answering questions  
Ten Ton Hammer : 6/23/2018 11:22 pm : link
in his typical 'use a lot of words and say nothing' style than that he is actually revealing anything about the offense.

and the owners thought, from before the draft, that ELI has some years left and thats why we took Barkley with the second pick in the draft. So lets hope they were right and think about the season and maybe the supplemental draft and pickups from the roosters that will be dropping players. Hoping our personnel guys get us a few more pieces for this puzzle there. Exciting stuff gets you back into FB after the shitshow last season.
When Offensive football players who do not execute well and  
Jimmy Googs : 6/24/2018 12:31 pm : link
are not particularly fast or more athletic get consistently beat by the Defense, it isn't always "predictability" that should be blamed.
