Marshall, Eli use FaceTime to learn playbook

How does a savvy veteran get a leg up on the playbook?

If you're on the Giants, just FaceTime Eli Manning.

Wideout Brandon Marshall posted a snippet of his conversation with the Giants quarterback Thursday -- a short clip that showed Marshall thanking Manning for teaching him more about the timing of the offense. Marshall seems to say he was spending too much time "working" his defender at the line. Head coach Ben McAdoo's offense is notoriously dependent on a specific rhythm between the quarterback and wide receiver, something that is hard to solidify with precious few practice hours in the spring.

While the video feels a little staged and awkward, this is the day-in-the-life side of an NFL player we rarely see. Thanks to social media, we can get a glimpse of two players learning the system instead of just hearing them talk about it during early training camp interviews.
