Last month New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the new offense forced quarterback Eli Manning to do a lot of homework. The signal-caller agrees that learning the new scheme has refreshed him after his horrific 2013 season.
"It's re-energized me," Manning told 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."
Coming off ankle surgery, Manning's offseason work in the new offense was paramount. The quarterback got in some extra work at the Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana with Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham.
"Good to get some one-on-one time here," Manning said of tossing routes with Beckham.
The Giants hope the combination of the new offense and Beckham's skill will help Manning's roller-coaster career take another steep climb upward after last season's 27-interception free fall.
