  • Giants vs. Cowboys: What will the Giants’ offense look like?

    https://www.bigblueview.com/2017/12/...oo-evan-engram

    Excerpt "We are entering a new era of New York Giants football.

    In firing Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese on Monday, John Mara and Steve Tisch threw the franchise far outside of its comfort zone. It was a move, or combination of moves, which has never happened in the Giants’ 92 years of existence.

    But while the future of the franchise is now anything but certain — or least its direction — right now the Giants have to get ready to face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.

    That means getting the offense ready without the man who created the scheme.
    By the numbers

    Giants’ offense

    Rushing Yards - 89.1 (27th)

    Passing Yards - 204.2 (22nd)

    Total Yards - 293.3 (28th)

    Points - 15.8 (31st) Cowboys’ defense

    Rushing Yards - 107.8 (12th)

    Passing Yards - 234.8 (21st)

    Total Yards - 342.6 (21st)

    Points - 23.7 (20th) What will the offense look like?

    This is the first question we have to answer before we look at anything else.

    It is unrealistic for anyone to assume, or even hope, that the offense will suddenly be transmogrified into something new and different with the departure of McAdoo. The system that he installed back in 2014 will still be in place for the simple fact that it is beyond absurd to try and install a whole new NFL offense in the span of an in-season week of practice.

    The Giants’ offense will still be based on the “West Coast” system that McAdoo installed because that is the system pretty much all of the players know. Sure, Eli Manning and Mike Sullivan could work together to run the offense they both learned from Kevin Gilbride, but the only other Giant who would have a clue is Justin Pugh.

    However, this will be the first time we’ve seen that system without its architect.

    We already saw some changes in the offense when McAdoo passed play-calling duties to Mike Sullivan. We saw a greater reliance on the run and more variation in formations from previous years. However, it was still easy to see McAdoo’s fingerprints on the game plan when things got tight. When the offense was under pressure, we once again saw the reliance on “11” personnel packages in the shotgun formation, even when that didn’t get the best players on the field.

    But this week we’ll see the offense as game-planned by Mike Sullivan, likely with heavy input from Manning.

    Will the offense be more up-tempo, a la the break-neck pace with which they played against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3? (Is that even possible with their injuries?) Will we see more involvement with the tight ends, particularly after Evan Engram’s seven-catch, 99-yard, 1 TD day against the Oakland Raiders? Will we see more fluidity in formations and alignments?"

      Maranelli is a real good DC he gets a lot done with a little,he is going to make it hard on Flowers and who ever the other Tackle will be he will expose every weakness AKA the OL and make them pay,there numbers are against competent offenses so my guess is the sledding will be ruff.

          Honestly, anything more than two TDs from this offense is unrealistic.

          I just don't see them doing a lot. Even against Dallas.

          This looks like a 17-13 game.

            while the Dallas D has had a lot to be desired last couple of weeks, especially since Lee's been out, they will look like all pro's this week, that seems to be the trend against us.

                Offense will be terrible just like it’s been with ELI the past 30 games.

                  Dallas has the 21st ranked defense and they will be without their best CB this week so I expect Eli to have a good game.

                    Washington has even a worse ranked defense. They were missing half of their dline, all of their linebackers, and half of their secondary. What did Eli do against them?

                      I am expecting the giants to do exactly what they have done 90% of this season on offense: NOT A DAMN THING.

                        Eli will be awful as usual. We put up 3 points in the first Cowboys game, I think we score 10 points this time.

                          Still have a terrible line and not much of a run game. I'm hoping Eli comes out with some crazy point to prove and throws for four touchdowns but do we have people to catch those touchdown passes anyway? I'm not hopeful.
