The New York Giants have a new offense for the first time in the Eli Manning era under new coordinator Ben McAdoo, and it is looking a little bit different. The Giants are looking to be more Eagles like and to push the pace of the game.
“We’re pushing for 70 or more plays per game,” Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan said Thursday, via ESPN New York.
Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka joked that he has yet to see the offense call a huddle in practice.
“I’m still waiting for them to call up a huddle in practice,” Kiwanuka said. “The intention of this offense is to cause chaos.”
That no huddle flow to the offense is by design according to running back Rashad Jennings.
“We have the capability of running our entire offense through the no-huddle,” Jennings said. “It’s just a matter of how much we feel we need to use it per game, or how often the offensive coordinator feels we need to run it.”
“We have options every time we touch the ball,” Jennings added. “We get to set up the tempo. We set the edge of where we want the defenders to actually hit, how the offensive linemen are blocking … all of it’s moreso in our hands as far as our angles.”
It will set up some interesting match ups between the Eagles and Giants as they both have offenses pushing the pace and tempo of games.
