The New York Giants have a new offensive coordinator in Ben McAdoo. It will be the first time quarterback Eli Manning has worked with a new offensive coordinator since the 2006 season, former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride’s first with the team.
“In a way it will be exciting,” Manning said, via Tom Rock of Newsday. “You have to come in and you have to learn some new things. Obviously, what the changes will be — if it will be completely changed with the terminology and formations or if we’ll keep some of those things and bring in all of his concepts — I don’t know if the coaches have all figured that out yet as well.”
He takes over a team that is in the bottom half of the league in the ground game and the passing game. The Giants were 19th in passing yards per game with 224.3 yards per game. With the run, the Giants were the 29th best team in the league averaging 83.3 yards per game.
