At the risk of redundancy, we enter another NFL season with a decorated quarterback trying to prove himself. Evidently, two Super Bowl rings don’t ring as loudly as they used to.
After missing the playoffs the past two seasons, Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants aren’t one of the morning-line favorites to get back to the postseason.
With two weeks left until the regular-season opener in Detroit on Sept. 8, the Giants’ new offense is struggling, and two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning does not look comfortable.
The Giants have one thing they can feel very good about. It’s the division they call home, the NFC East.
Geno Smith and Michael Vick each threw touchdown passes with the New York Jets’ starting offense, and the defense mostly shut down Eli Manning before the Giants’ backups rallied for a 35-24 preseason victory Friday night.
Rex Ryan has not-so-fond memories of the last time the Jets faced the Giants. Well, other than winning a preseason game that earned his team a Snoopy-topped bronze trophy.
This terrific Tuesday edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza — make that a ‘positive Tuesday,’ according to Craig — began with the guys discussing the Giants’ struggling offense.
Eli Manning understands the concern about the New York Giants’ offense with the regular season three weeks away. The guys entrusted with making new coordinator Ben McAdoo’s unit work have done little in the last two preseason games.
Coach Tom Coughlin would never criticize his franchise quarterback, but he knows that there has to be changes with Eli Manning and the offense.
Although the performance against Indy has led to widespread consternation about Manning and his first-unit group, one must understand that McAdoo is keeping things under wraps.
A day after the Jets were doused by members of the Cortlandville Fire Department, the Giants took their turns answering the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, albeit in a bit more subtle fashion.
While the team believes in the new up-tempo offense, Eli Manning said the players are doing too much thinking on the field and not reacting instinctively.
Eli Manning has too much talent, temerity and intelligence to turn into the turnover machine he was last year. And no doubt the Giants will do everything in their power to avoid a repeat of their galling 0-6 start in 2013.
Boomer reluctantly put his rhyming skills on display. That in turn prompted ‘The’ Eddie Scozzare to take a well-thought-out shot at the Blonde Bomber.
The Manning brothers are at it again. No, not on the football field, but in a brand new music video.
