The Dallas Cowboys’ New Jersey-based rivals, the New York Giants have been rejuvenated by the installation of a new offense, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Longtime Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride retired this offseason, and was replaced by former Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo. We’d imagine the acquisition was motivated at least in part by New York’s hope that McAdoo can do with Eli Manning--who threw a whopping 27 interceptions in 2013--what he did with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.
Or at least cut down on that interception total.
“I felt like this would be an opportunity for us to rejuvenate those veteran players who were here, Eli for one, to force all of us to learn, again, a new system, a new communication process,” Coughlin told ESPN’s Josina Anderson recently, via Pro Football Talk. “For 10 years we had used the same system--we got two Super Bowls and accomplished an awful lot of things offensively--but last year wasn’t one of those years. We turned it over way too much.”
