Last year's incarnation was putrid -- beginning with the play of Eli Manning -- but there's early hope that coordinator Ben McAdoo's new offense can help Big Blue's veteran passer turn the ship around.
"Yeah, it is different. You come into the season a little nervous. You just don't have (the same comfort)," Manning told reporters Monday, per the New York Post. "You have a good feel for it, but not to where I want it to be. That's with repetition and more plays."
We see the change as a positive for Manning, who got comfortable playing under the same coordinator in Kevin Gilbride for seven seasons in Gotham.
None of the revisions or upgrades will mean a thing, though, if Eli repeats his 27-interception horror show from last autumn. Still, we all know what Manning is capable of when he gets hot, which makes the Giants something of a mystery in the NFC East.
