Eli Manning throws two touchdowns in Week 3 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:25 pm ET) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw a pair of touchdowns, and New York earned its first victory of the season during a 30-17 win Week 3 vs. Houston. Manning completed 21 of 28 passes for 234 yards and no touchdowns, finishing with a 123.2 quarterback rating.

He put New York up 7-0 after connecting with Victor Cruz on a 26-yard touchdown pass with 3:21 left in the second quarter. He then gave the Giants a 27-10 lead in the fourth quarter after connecting with Daniel Fells for a 9-yard touchdown with 9:25 left.

Manning almost had a lengthy touchdown pass late in the first quarter, but Cruz couldn't outrun the defense and was dragged down after a 61-yard gain. On the previous drive, Larry Donnell fumbled down inside the 5-yard line after catching a 6-yard pass from Manning.

Manning didn't throw an interception for the first time in eight games dating back to last season. The Giants are back in action Thursday at Washington.


Coach believes Giants are getting better


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo has seen progress in the Giants offense, according to ESPN.

The team has gotten off to a slow start, particularly on offense. Despite that, McAdoo said he's seen some signs of progress with the whole offense, including quarterback Eli Manning. "I thought he had some comfort in his feet," McAdoo said. "He felt good about where he was going with the ball. That is encouraging to see." 

McAdoo went on to stress how good the team looked in practice Thursday. They'll have a chance to show off that improvement Week 3 against the Eagles.


Eli Manning throws two touchdowns in losing effort


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw a pair of touchdowns Sunday against the Cardinals, but New York couldn't overcome four turnovers -- including two Manning interceptions -- in a 25-14 loss Week 2.

Manning got off to a pretty poor start Sunday, as he threw an interception on his fifth passing attempt. Though, Manning did a good job of bouncing back from the interception, as by halftime he had a 100.9 quarterback rating. He completed 12 of 14 passes for 135 yards by halftime, which included a 7-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle right before the break.

Manning put New York ahead 14-10 with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Fells with 2:03 left in the third quarter, but that's when it fell apart for New York. The Giants would turn the ball over three times in the fourth quarter and unofficially had five drops in the second half, including three from star receiver Victor Cruz.

Manning completed 26 of 39 passes for 277 yards in the loss. He rushed for 5 yards and was sacked two times. The Giants are back in action Week 3 vs. Houston.


Cardinals coach offers opinion about Eli Manning's struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) As the Cardinals prepare to play the Giants Week 2, Arizona coach Bruce Arians took time out to talk with the New York media and expressed his views about quarterback Eli Manning, who appears to be struggling as he adjusts to a new offense under first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo.

"I did this with Carson Palmer last year," Arians said, per the New York Daily News. "He had been in the same system pretty much nine years and he has ideas, then you are trying to re-program. It is much easier getting a rookie and brainwashing him than it is to take a veteran and change him totally into a new system.

"I try to never judge a quarterback in a new offense until Week 8."

Arians said Palmer didn't fully understand the new offense until midway through the 2013 season. The Cardinals went 4-4 to begin the year, but finished 6-2 over the last eight games.

"It was Week 8 for us last year," Arians said of when things changed. "Then, all of a sudden, you could see the guys around him start to get it and play faster and play better."


Eli Manning has nightmare Week 1 performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning had a nightmare of a game on Monday against the Lions in week 1.

Manning struggled through his first two drives and his third drive was kept alive due to a roughing the punter penalty. Manning bounced back several plays later with a 1-yard fade pass to Larry Donnell in the end zone for a touchdown in the second quarter.

Manning targeted Donnell again on the opening drive of the second half, but he failed to turn around resulting in an interception.Things didn't get any better for Manning in the third quarter. Manning was picked off by Glover Quin, stalling another drive. He was limited to 163 yards through the air while completing 18 of 33 passes. He threw one touchdown and was picked off twice in a 35-14 defeat. He was sacked twice and finished with a 53.0 passer rating.

Manning will look to get back on track Week 2 at home against Arizona. He hasn't faced the Cardinals since 2011. He carved them up for 321 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Eli Manning is not worth the risk in Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning spent the entire offseason learning a new offense, and he'll get to apply it come Week 1 against the Lions in Detroit on Monday night.

The last time he faced the Lions, he cracked the 250-yard mark. Manning completed 23 of 42 passes for 256 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. He'll look to build off that performance. However, the only difference between last year's meeting is that Manning will be working with a new offensive coordinator, Ben McAdoo.

Each of the last three years, Manning has had at least one 400-yard passing game in the first five weeks of the season. Although he has a somewhat favorable matchup, he's had an extremely rough preseason under the new offense, which leaves us skeptical heading into the season opener. He's way too risky to trust at this point, so leave him on your bench.

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.
