Eli Manning to play 15-18 snaps Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) With the Giants struggling to get comfortable in their new offense, coach Tom Coughlin told reporters that quarterback Eli Manning and other starters will play 15-18 snaps in Thursday's preseason finale against New England. Manning showed modest improvement in his fourth preseason game last Friday, hitting 12 of 21 throws for 139 yards and his first touchdown.

Eli Manning finally scores first TD of preseason


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning showed slight signs of life in his fourth preseason outing Friday night against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

Manning hooked up with Rueben Randle for a 15-yard touchdown strike with just 11 seconds remaining in the first half, his last play of the game. The first-team sat out the final two quarters and Manning complied 139 yards through the air while completing 12 of 21 passes. He added a touchdown, no interceptions, finishing with a 93.2 passer rating. He was sacked twice.

Manning has completed 19 of 37 passes for 188 yards through four preseason games.

Eli Manning not worried about nonexistent offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he's not worried about the lackluster performance by the starting offense. Manning is 1 for 9 passing for six yards over the past two games.

"Obviously you want to go out there and you want to play well," he told the New York Daily News. "You feel like you should be able to find completions and do things well. But you can’t get worried at this point in time."

The Giants installed a new scheme under coordinator Ben McAdoo. They have only one significant preseason game left to show progress.


Eli Manning held to one completion Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) The preseason struggles continued for Eli Manning and the Giants Saturday night in Indianapolis.

Manning completed a short pass to Jerrel Jernigan for a gain of 6 yards on the second drive. It was his only completion of the night. He worked four series with the first-team offense and completed only 1 of 7 pass attempts for 6 yards through the air, registering a 39.6 passer rating.

Eli Manning doesn't do much Saturday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning was on the field for 12 snaps in Saturday's preseason win over the Steelers. Manning had three dropbacks, and went 0 for 2 passing. The Giants scored on Manning's second possession when Rashad Jennings ripped off a 73-yard touchdown run.

"I didn’t think we were real effective," Manning told The Star-Ledger. "The first series we had a third and manageable situation and we couldn’t convert. They had a pretty good defense on, but second series we had the great run with Rashad [Jennings]. Simple play, offensive line blocked it up great and he made a guy miss and went for a big run. So that’s nice to see. After that we just had some penalties, had sacks. We kept going backwards and couldn’t really get anything going. We have to find ways to be more efficient and avoid the negative plays."


Eli Manning completes 6 of 7 passes in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning was on the field for only one quarter of play during Sunday's Hall of Fame preseason game against the Bills in Canton.

Manning was sacked once and lost a fumble but looked sharp under center, in his first game back from ankle surgery. He completed six of his seven pass attempts for 43 yards, averaging 6.1 yards per attempt. Three of those six completions went to newly-acquire running back Rashad Jennings.

The Giants will host the Steelers on Saturday.

Giants set unrealistic goal for Eli Manning


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Giants quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf would like Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes this year. While Manning is focused on improving his accuracy and will take fewer deep shots, the goal is unrealistic.

Manning has a career completion percentage of 58.5 and his career-best was 62.9 percent in 2010.

"We'd love to be up there at 70 percent," Langsdorf said, via the New York Daily News. "It hasn't been done very often. That's the ultimate goal. We'd like to raise his completion percentage for sure."

Only four players in NFL history have posted a completion percentage above 70. Manning has completed 70 percent of his throws in a single game just 15 times in 10 seasons.

"The high 60s is kind of the goal, to be in the top of the league," Manning said. "Sure it's realistic. It's a combination of the offense and the players we have."


Giants working extensively on no-huddle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) The Giants ran 59 no-huddle plays all of last season. That represented 4.7 percent of their total plays. In contrast, the Eagles ran a league-high 705 no-huddle plays (51.1 percent) and the Broncos ran 537 (35.4 percent).

It appears the Giants plan to have Eli Manning operating out of the no-huddle more often. Their first three practices featured frequent use of the no-huddle.

"It keeps defenses on their toes," running back Rashad Jennings said. "[Offensive coordinator Ben] McAdoo has a way to keep the defense on their toes, put pressure on them, get the long shots, get the grinding yards. It’s a lot of different ways to attack a defense. Also, it puts a lot of ownership on the players to learn the playbook. It puts the capability in the quarterback’s hands to make decisions."

Jennings said the team can run its entire offense out of the no-huddle. Wideout Rueben Randle also loves it.

"It gives us time to get set and see what the defense is going to do, to keep them out of position," he said. "Switching in our personnel to take advantage of the personnel they have out there. Hopefully, they’re in regular [defense] and we’re in three-wide, so we can spread the ball out a little bit and use our speed to make a few plays."


Eli Manning declares his ankle is 100 percent


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery April 10 but says his ankle already feels 100 percent, reports Newsday. "I feel good, I feel strong, I feel ready to go full speed," Manning said.

The Giants will hold their first practice Tuesday.


Eli Manning 'reenergized' by new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning played 10 years in Kevin Gilbride's offensive system. He told the New York Daily News that learning the new offense installed by first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo has reinvigorated him.

"It’s reenergized me," Manning said. "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."

Despite undergoing arthroscopic ankle surgery April 10, Manning said he has not been limited during offseason workouts. Giants' training camp begins July 22.


QB coach working on Eli Manning's mechanics


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) New Giants quarterback coach Danny Langsdorf is focusing on Eli Manning's fundamentals and footwork.

"We’ve spent a lot of time fundamentally throughout the spring, both footwork and everything from ball fakes, ball handling to throwing accurately to dropping back," Langsdorf, the former Oregon State offensive coordinator, told The Star-Ledger.

"There’s a little bit different of footwork that we’re using, some of the routes that he’s used to, and we’re timing it up with the receivers so there’s a little bit of fundamental work but he’s a veteran guy and a pro that’s had success for a long time so we’re not doing anything, drastic changes, but just trying to fine-tune and tweak a few things."

Manning threw 18 touchdowns and a career-high 27 interceptions last season. 


McAdoo likes working with Eli Manning


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) New Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo enjoys working with quarterback Eli Manning, reports ESPN.

"I like the way he thinks about the game," McAdoo said. "Eli is very humble. He's a guy that is very anxious and very excited to be a part of something. He didn't have the year that he wanted to have last year, and we didn't talk about this, but what I see is a guy who's a consummate pro and is excited to move on."


Eli Manning 're-energized' with new offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is excited with new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system, reports ESPN.

"It is tough, it's not easy, but it has definitely re-energized me and brought an urgency to this time of year," Manning said Tuesday during a radio interview.

Manning is trying to overcome a terrible season in 2013 when he threw for just 18 touchdowns, with a league-high 27 interceptions and a quarterback rating of just 69.4 in 2013.

"It's definitely challenging. Each night, I'm staying up and preparing, and I feel like I'm in season right now with the amount of preparation I'm trying to put in to get ready for each practice," Manning said. "Each practice is draining on you mentally, you're thinking so much about everything that has to go on and the different calls. But it is also exciting. As a football player, as a competitor, you like to be challenged."


Eli Manning ready to go


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning said his ankle is doing fine two months after surgery, reports the New York Daily News.

"Yeah, 100 percent, yeah," Manning said when asked if he could play a game right now. "The ankle, I don't think about it, don't notice it. I go about practice and do everything and they’re not even worried about it. So, it hasn't been an issue. No question I could play tomorrow."

Manning suffered a high left ankle sprain in the final game of the 2013 season, and he underwent arthroscopic surgery on April 10. He says he has not been limited in the OTAs, which started a couple of weeks ago.

"All the OTAs, I've taken all the reps that I would normally take in a typical scenario," he said.

Regarding new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system, Manning said he was "not 100 percent comfortable with everything going on. There's still some learning curve and there's still some things I've got to digest and think through."


Eli Manning apparently practicing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who had ankle surgery last month, took snaps and threw passes to receivers at OTAs on Wednesday, reports ESPN.com. Manning's participation "has to be considered an encouraging sign for the Giants" as the team installs a new offense under coordinator Ben McAdoo, the report said.

Jaws: New offense will take time for Eli Manning to learn


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) The Giants are developing a new offense under coordinator Ben McAdoo, but according to ESPN NFL Analyst Ron Jaworski, it might be a while before the scheme pays off, particularly for quarterback Eli Manning

"It will be an adjustment for Eli. I can't just say it's going to be great," Jaworski said per the Newark Star-Ledger last week. "It's going to take some time. In my career, I played for four different teams in a lot of different systems, and it's like learning another language. It takes time, so it will be interesting to see how quickly Eli can assimilate into a new offense."

Per the paper, several Giants players have already noted how tough it is to learn a new playbook after working in the same one for so many years. Manning said last month that "the mind's swimming a little bit right now."


Eli Manning says his ankle feels 100 percent


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Just one month removed from ankle surgery, Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he feels 100 percent though "the trainers tell me I'm not," reports the New York Daily News. He's already doing football drills and took half the practice reps in Monday's workout, the report said.

"I already feel like I can go out there and do everything," Manning said. “We’ll still be smart about it these next few weeks and not overdo anything. If they want to limit me somewhat, I’ll understand that. But I want to take every single rep and they know that."


Addition of Odell Beckham changes Giants' receiving corps


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Giants view rookie receiver Odell Beckham as a contributor right away, reports ESPN.

"He's a dynamic receiver, dynamic punt returner and a dynamic kickoff returner," general manager Jerry Reese said. "You're getting a guy that can score touchdowns in three different ways for you. There's no way we would pass him up."

Beckham is expected to replace the departed Hakeem Nicks, and his addition allows the Giants to keep Victor Cruz as a slot receiver with Beckham and Rueben Randle playing outside.

"We're talking about the quarterback needing help, and this guy is a weapon," Reese said of Eli Manning and Co. "We need a weapon on the outside. Victor is more of an inside receiver. Victor can't play on the outside. We have Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and we got Mario Manningham back, so we're trying to get the quarterback some weapons. You need weapons in this league. We think this guy is a weapon."


Giants replace Hakeem Nicks with Odell Beckham Jr.


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) The Giants needed a replacement for Hakeem Nicks, and apparently they weren't sold on Rueben Randle as a starter. So they drafted receiver Odell Beckham Jr. from LSU at No. 12 overall.

Beckham has the chance to start right away, and he will help Eli Manning, who is coming off a down year in 2013. The Giants have a new offensive coordinator in Ben McAdoo, and you can expect to see a lot of three-receiver sets with Victor Cruz, Beckham and Randle.

We hope this will help the Giants make some plays down the field, and Beckham is considered a good route runner, who had 143 catches for 2,340 yards and 12 touchdowns in college.

We like Beckham with a late-round flier in re-draft Fantasy Football leagues, and he's likely a second-round pick in rookie-only formats. Randle now also drops from a potential mid-round pick to a late-round selection in the majority of leagues.


Eli Manning has started throwing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) The Giants have said quarterback Eli Manning (ankle surgery) won't begin practicing until training camp, but Manning already has begun throwing. That's according to his brother, Peyton Manning.

"He feels good," Peyton Manning told the New York Daily News. "He was doing some light throwing the other day, obviously just kind of upper-body stuff."

Eli Manning is out of his walking boot and has begun running. Peyton Manning described the April surgery as preemptive.

"Just the doctor thought this might pop up in the fall," Peyton Manning said. "Might as well knock it out now. It's hard to do, but it was the right thing to do, and I know he (Eli) will be excited once he can get back out there."


GM: Eli Manning won't practice until July


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/1/2014) Giants general manager Jerry Reese said Thursday that quarterback Eli Manning won't practice until training camp begins in late July. Manning has had offseason ankle surgery. 

"We want him back for the summer. We're not going to rush him back," Reese said according to the New York Daily News


Eli Manning loses the boot


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/28/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning walked as part of a March of Dimes charity event over the weekend, and did so without his walking boot or without a limp, the Newark Star-Ledger reported. Manning is expected to remain sidelined through most of May after mid-April ankle surgery. 

Eli Manning looking forward to 'clean slate'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw 27 interceptions against 18 touchdowns last season while posting his lowest completion percentage (57.5) in six years. Manning, who's recovering from an ankle procedure, is excited about working with new coordinator Ben McAdoo and the team's improved offensive line.

“I think you almost feel like this is an opportunity to re-invent yourself,” Manning said, per the New York Daily News. “And to come back and to change what occurred last year and some of the difficulties, and bounce back and kind of have a clean slate to kind of prove yourself again, and get back to playing at a high level.”


Eli Manning ready for new offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/23/2014) Giant quarterback Eli Manning said the offense will definitely look different in 2014 with new offensive coordinato Ben McAdoo, reports the Newark Star-Ledger. McAdoo comes to the Giants from Green Bay.

"I think it will be similar to what they did in Green Bay," Manning said Tuesday while sporting a walking boot fresh off ankle surgery. "That's where Ben came from, so I think it will be pretty similar to that offense. ... I've never been in a West Coast offense, so I don't know if it's exactly a West Coast or a form of it, or anything at all like it. I think it has some tendencies to it, the protections and stuff, but every offense has it's own little dial and uniqueness that makes it work."


Eli Manning still in boot but says he'll be ready for camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Eli Manning showed up at Giants camp Tuesday with his left foot in a walking boot following offseason ankle surgery. While he claimed he did not hurt it playing basketball Manning did make clear that he plans to be a participant at training camp, telling the Newark Star-Ledger that "it will be safe to say I'll be 100 percent." 

Teammate Victor Cruz went to Duke with Manning for some unofficial passing workouts and said he couldn't tell his ankle was a problem. Manning is expected to miss all of the Giants' offseason workouts and minicamps, which means he'll be behind in learning and understanding the team's new offense, though Manning already surmises that it will be a lot like what the Packers have been running.
