The New York Giants had a rough season last year, starting off 0-6 before stringing together some wins. There was a little bit of controversy in the wide receiver group with Hakeem Nicks’ contract situation and running backs were coming and going with injuries.
Nicks has moved on and the Giants drafted Odell Beckham out of LSU to replace him. The Giants also have a new offensive coordinator as well.
“It’s reenergized me,” Manning said, via the New York Daily News. “I’m trying to speed up the process of getting comfortable in the new system. I don’t have 10 years. I have a few months.”
If anything it is a change of pace and a break of routine for Manning, who 10 years under previous coordinator Kevin Gilbride. Sometimes something new is a way to regain your focus and energy.
The Giants have a lot of work to improve the offense. They were 28th in the league in 2013 with 4,920 yards. One of only five teams to not hit 5,000 yards. That ground game that dealt with some many injuries came in at 29th with 1,332 yards on the season, an average of 83.3 yards per game.
