Giants QB Eli Manning is expecting best pro season next year
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(10:06 am ET) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is an accomplished 11-year veteran. There isn't much for the two-time Super Bowl MVP to prove, except that he will have his best season ever as a pro next year, according to NFL.com.
"I am," Manning said when asked if he was expecting his best season ever. "I like the guys we have in the locker room, I like our talent, I like how everybody's approaching this season, I'm looking forward to it."
Manning will certainly have the weapons at his disposal for a fantastic season. Wide receiver Odell Beckham, the 2014 Offensive Rookie of the Year, is as talented a player there is. A healthy Victor Cruz will scare opposing defenses. And Rueben Randle has improved every season in the league.
"I think he can have a dominant season," Cruz said. "I think that with the type of offense we have, and the way that we all can click come September and all that good stuff, I think it's gonna make for a very, very dominant type of offense where we could go and put up 28, 35 points at a clip, and really do some fun things this year."
Manning will have to try to eclipse last season's performance, when he threw for 4,410 yards and 30 touchdowns.
Giants new-look offensive line on display in OTA's
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/28/15) The Giants have completely remodeled their offensive line unit for the start of organized team activities.
Compared to last year's o-line, only two players are back but even those guys have switched positions and shifted along the line. Justin Pugh has gone from right tackle to left guard and Weston Richburg shifted from left guard to center.
Will Beatty, who was a mainstay at left tackle last season, will miss five to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Beatty's injury has paved the way for rookie Ereck Flowers to step in at the left tackle position.
Quaterback Eli Manning is still adjusting to all the moving pieces in front of him.
"Obviously, having a new center can be an adjustment," Manning said. "But (Weston) Richburg was here last year and I got snaps with him last year, so that hasn't been a big deal. Anytime you have a rookie at left tackle, it can be an adjustment."
Geoff Schwartz and John Jerry are splitting time at right guard, while Marshall Newhouse has been taking the snaps at right tackle.
Giants OC Ben McAdoo expecting big leap from Eli Manning in 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo thinks this coming season is where the most growth will be seen from for quarterback Eli Manning, according to ESPN.com.
Manning, who set career highs in passing yards and completion percentage in 2014, could make a big leap in Year 2.
"Usually, when you put in changes or change the system or address fundamentals, it shows up in Year 2," McAdoo said Saturday. "I like the look in his eye. I'm excited for what's on the plate this year."
McAdoo also noted Manning was feeling more comfortable with the offense during the second half of the season.
Giants QB Eli Manning comfortable with playing out contract
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/20/15) Eli Manning is heading into the 2015 season on the final year of his contract with the Giants, but he isn't worried about getting an extension anytime soon, per The Record.
The two-time Super Bowl winner can become a free agent after the year, but in speaking with reporters after the Giants' voluntary workouts on Monday, said the lack of a deal will not affect his preparation.
"I've never got too caught up with contract stuff," he said. "Way I look at it, I have one more year and I'm gonna play that year and go from there."
Manning, 34, has passed for 39,755 yards with 259 touchdowns and 185 interceptions in 11 NFL seasons.
Giants QB Eli Manning wants to take offense 'to another level'
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is entering the second year in offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system. Manning is ready to take the next step now that he is familiar with the system, reports the NY Daily News.
““This year will be a much easier transition, knowing that we have been through so much of it already,” said Manning, who recently had been working out at Ole Miss with some of their receivers and alumni. “It’s definitely a different starting point. I feel good about it. I feel that I have a good understanding of it.
“But there is still room to grow and that is why I try to keep it as fresh in my mind as possible. Looking at old game-plan sheets and calling plays in my head – throwing routes with receivers trying to call out plays to myself, so you don’t let it slip away. It was new last year and it wasn’t something I have been doing for 10 years, so you want to keep it fresh and go through your reminders and all your checks. So when we come back I haven’t taken a step backwards and have to re-learn things. It is still all there. There will be new stuff and we will be taking it to another level.”
Manning has started all 16 games in each season since 2005, throwing for 39,755 yards with 259 touchdowns and 185 interceptions.
|Eli Manning has the chance for a big year this season thanks to a standout receiving corps and a quality offensive system. Manning was the No. 11 Fantasy quarterback in standard leagues last season and finished just 10 points behind Matt Ryan for No. 8. He's actually been a Top 12 quarterback five times in the past seven years (he was No. 21 and 15 the 2012 and 2013, respectively). Last year, Manning attempted a career-high 601 passes in new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system and completed a career-best 63.1 percent. He had nine games with at least 20 Fantasy points and he got plenty of help from rookie phenom Odell Beckham. The hope is Victor Cruz (knee) will make a full recovery in time for training camp and Cruz, Beckham, Rueben Randle, Larry Donnell and Shane Vereen should give Manning the best receiving corps of his career. He has the chance for another season of 4,400-plus yards and 30-plus touchdowns, making him a great quarterback to wait for on Draft Day with a mid- to late-round pick.
