Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:12:14 -0800
With the hiring of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, the New York Giants are admitting that they will change up their offensive approach to be more successful in 2014. "We're going to try to compromise the system with what we have here," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "However, there will be change, and that change will be very positive and very well-received by our team and players. And if our players are scrambling around to learn a new system -- good. That's another fire in their rear end." The new offensive scheme should help WR Victor Cruz, and it'll require QB Eli Manning to go through his progressions quickly and deliver the ball to playmakers in space.
Wed, 08 Jan 2014 08:55:44 -0800
Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said a poor offensive line this year was the reason for QB Eli Manning's disappointing season. The team finished 28th in the league in total offense in 2013, and Manning had a career-high 27 interceptions. "(The offensive line) made it impossible for (Manning) to function. ... You give him help and he's proven he can win a championship," Gilbride said.
Tue, 07 Jan 2014 19:26:17 -0800
New York Giants wide receivers coach Kevin M. Gilbride said Tuesday, Jan. 7, in a satellite radio interview that the struggles of QB Eli Manning were due to the collapse of the offensive line. "It just made it impossible for our quarterback to function," Gilbride said. "He's a guy where if you give him enough time, he's always going to be throwing the ball to the right person, he's going to know what you're doing defensively, he's going to see through your disguises, he's going to be an accurate passer. But he's not a scrambler and you've got to give him some help."
Tue, 07 Jan 2014 13:55:30 -0800
New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks said he does not think the team needs a new offense, and he is sure QB Eli Manning will not want to change things up offensively. "He won't want to change," Nicks said of Manning. "It's been working for us in the past. I'm not putting too much emphasis on it."
Tue, 31 Dec 2013 13:03:03 -0800
New York Giants QB Eli Manning remains the face of the franchise despite a disappointing season that saw him toss 27 interceptions. "Well listen, he did not have a good year," owner John Mara said. "He'd be the first one to tell you that. But he had a lot of company... He's still the face of the franchise, and we need to help him. We need to give him some better tools and do a better job around him next year." Manning's current contract is set to expire in 2016, and the team is open to signing him to an extension this offseason.
Sun, 29 Dec 2013 11:45:25 -0800

Sat, 28 Dec 2013 07:31:03 -0800
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he wants to work in the offseason to eliminate any disconnect with QB Eli Manning. "This year I'll make it a point to get with Eli a little bit more … and get the receiving corps together as much as we can, to kind of build that more," Cruz said.
"That's one thing we lacked … that continuity from a receiver standpoint with our quarterback. And I want to build that earlier this year. We've got to set some time apart and get the receivers down with Eli whenever he's ready and kind of just schedule it right so we can just build, not only on the field, but off the field."
Wed, 25 Dec 2013 11:04:56 -0800

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 09:26:41 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning threw three more interceptions in the team's Week 5 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, and he now leads the league with 12 picks this season. "I honestly believe that he's trying so hard to get us a win, he's almost put too much on himself," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "And I'm not making excuses. There were a couple of those plays that were terrible. The intentional grounding penalties hurt so badly, because not only distance but to lose the down. I think we can make some progress with regard to preventing that. I think we do have to sometimes just cover the ball and go down."
Fantasy Tip: It's been a tough year for the younger Manning brother. Key injuries to the Giants' offensive line hasn't helped at all, and it doesn't look to get better any time soon. Consider dropping Manning for other QB2 options on the waiver wire.
Tue, 24 Sep 2013 09:40:11 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he feels good physically after taking a beating in the team's Week 3 game. Manning was sacked seven times in the team's loss to the Carolina Panthers. "I was able to do everything today," Manning said. "That's not the problem. I'll be fine."
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 10:28:48 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning tossed four interceptions against the Denver Broncos in a loss in Week 2, and he has seven interceptions in the first two games.
Fantasy Tip: One of the picks was a freak lucky break for the Broncos, but Manning was forcing throws in order to get back into the game in the second half. The Giants pass offense has always been aggressive, and with that, interceptions will follow. But don't expect Eli to be this bad all season.
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 19:01:18 -0700
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said the team will try to get all four quarterbacks in their first preseason game. QB Eli Manning will start the game and get 12 to 15 snaps.

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 18:41:42 -0700
New York Giants TE Brandon Myers has been jelling nicely with QB Eli Manning so far during training camp, and the two have been connecting on some long passes. They have reportedly looked good during goal line drills.
Fantasy Tip: Myers really emerged as a Top 10 fantasy tight end last season, and he is working in a much better offense with a much better quarterback on a much better team this season. He seems to be flying a little bit under the radar, but he could end up being a Top 5 option at his position if he lives up to his potential and stays healthy. Don't quite think Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham caliber fantasy production, but he could easily accomplish the kind of numbers we've seen from Owen Daniels, when healthy.
Sat, 03 Aug 2013 16:41:50 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he is looking to improve his accuracy because his completion percentage has dropped each of the last two seasons. "Being more accurate and better on our deep balls," Manning said. "Our big plays were down last year, and that's a big part of our offense. We're going to use play-action, we're going to get the ball down the field. We're not scared about pushing the ball down the field. But it's good when it pays off and you hit big plays and game-changing plays. Last year, I think we had opportunities to hit them and we just didn't hit them. So I think that's what we've got to get better at, is just kind of connecting on some of those deep balls."
Thu, 27 Jun 2013 15:32:59 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning praised WR Rueben Randle. "A lot of times that second year you have a better feel for what's going on, what his assignments are and the ins and outs of the offense," Manning said as the Giants wrapped up OTAs. "He's confident out there. He's got a great skill set. I think he's had a great spring. I think he's done a lot of good things, made a lot of plays for us and I think he can be a great playmaker for us this year."
Thu, 06 Jun 2013 11:22:47 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said the workouts that took place early in the offseason at Duke University were not meant to be a substitution for work that can be done during OTAs, in reference to WRs Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz missing the team workouts. "You got some work, but I was really hoping that would be a little starter course to the spring and not a substitute for what we're doing on the field right now," Manning said Thursday, following the team's OTA. "This is the stuff where you're getting to go against cornerbacks. You get to work your technique. You get to practice those things we're gonna do in the season."
Fantasy Tip: While it is not ideal that Cruz and Nicks are missing OTAs, it should not take long for them to regain their chemistry with Manning once they do return to practice.
Fri, 31 May 2013 06:36:11 -0700
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Rueben Randle said he knows how important the extra reps he is getting during organized team activities are because it gives him more time to work with QB Eli Manning and show the coaches what he can do. "I'm a lot more confident in what I do," he said. "Going out there and making more plays, understanding the offense and more on the same page with Eli. And also, getting more trust from the coaches, and going out there and getting more reps so I can show my ability more."
Wed, 22 May 2013 19:09:54 -0700
New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks were missing at organized team activities Wednesday, May 22, over contract disputes, so QB Eli Manning was working with WRs Jerrel Jernigan, Louis Murphy and Rueben Randle during the session.
Mon, 13 May 2013 17:56:54 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he hopes WR Victor Cruz attends organized team activities next week. "We get into some real practices next week so hopefully as we get into those live going-against-the-defense practices he'll get back in so we can get back to work," Manning said.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Cruz does not attend OTA's, it should not take long for Manning to get back on the same page with his best wide receiver once the contract situation is resolved.
Thu, 18 Apr 2013 11:39:59 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he is not going to try to get WR Victor Cruz to show up for offseason activities, and understands why Cruz is not there.

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 17:38:56 -0700

Mon, 15 Apr 2013 15:20:37 -0700
New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) said he has been running at full speed for a few weeks and is happy that he recently worked out with QB Eli Manning. "I kept it simple because it was my first time running routes," Nicks said. "I wasn't about to go out there and – it's still early right now. So my biggest thing is that I want my presence to be felt there with Eli. Because it is something that I do week-to-week. We're on the same page."
Fantasy Tip: Nicks dealt with injuries during the 2012 season and underwent knee surgery this offseason in hopes of fixing his knee. Nicks should be a solid No. 2 wide receiver on teams next season if he is healthy. Hicks could have a chance to be a low-end No. 1 receiver if Victor Cruz is not on the team.
Wed, 10 Apr 2013 18:15:42 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning is preparing for the 2013 season by working out this week at Duke University in North Carolina, and he is assuming he'll have his receiving corps intact. Manning has been working out with restricted free-agent WRs Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks (knee) and newcomer Louis Murphy. "(I'm) here with Coach Cutcliffe (to) have him work with my mechanics, get everything sharp and get everything prepared," Manning said Wednesday, April 10. "So when we start workouts next week, I am going there ready to go and improving and ready to get better."
Fantasy Tip: Manning is making strides to get better, and working with Coach Cut will hopefully help him cut down on his mistakes in 2013. He is already a bona fide No. 1 fantasy option, but he could be Top 5 at his position if he continues to show improvement.
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 21:06:14 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said Wednesday, March 20, that he would be willing to restructure his contract, which runs through 2015 and counts $21 million against the salary cap in 2013, if it helps to re-sign WR Victor Cruz.

Wed, 20 Mar 2013 11:17:58 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he checks the newspapers every morning to make sure no team has offered restricted free agent WR Victor Cruz a contract and called the whole process nerve-wracking.

Sat, 05 Jan 2013 08:17:22 -0800
New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the injury to WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) really hurt the offense, particularly QB Eli Manning, this season, and the team may have been better off giving Nicks more rest. "I think it starts (with) ... Hakeem Nicks has been one of the linchpins in our offense. He was banged up and I really think it took its toll on our offense and what we are trying to do," Reese said. "He was trying to fight through it. But in hindsight, I think if we had to think about it again, maybe we would have taken him out a little quicker than we did. But that is neither here or there at this point. But I do think it affected the quarterback's play some."
Sun, 30 Dec 2012 14:04:49 -0800
New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 13-for-21 for 208 yards and a career-high five touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 16:06:19 -0800
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said WR Hakeem Nicks' lack of practice time this year has hurt the duo's productivity on game day. "He's out there trying to do his best, so we just have to keep working, try to get on the same page. He missed most of training camp, all of the offseason, so you don't get that rep time. We don't get practice reps. He gets a few reps, he's not quite at full speed. The timing is off on a few things, and it can make it hard to be as effective as you need to be and be on the perfect timing that is required to be really successful." Nicks had only three targets in Week 16 and didn't have a catch for the first time in his four-year career.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 04:04:44 -0800

New York Giants QB Eli Manning and WR Hakeem Nicks are having timing issues because of the lack of practice reps due to Nicks' injury issues this year. "I love Hakeem and the way he competes,'' Manning said. "He's obviously dealing with a frustrating issue that's limiting him a little bit. He missed most of training camp, all of the off-season, so you don't get that rep time. We don't get practice reps. The timing is off on a few things and it can make it hard to be as effective as you need to be."
