  • Giants' Roster Breakdown: Eli Manning

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/7/7/...wn-eli-manning

    Excerpt: "We have arrived at a very special, important place in our player-by-player breakdown of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp at the Timex Performance Center later this month. Today we discuss quarterback Eli Manning, the most important of all Giants.

    2012 Season In Review

    Not Manning's best work, that is the simplest way to put it. His touchdown and interception numbers were roughly the same as they were in 2011, 29 TDs and 16 INTs in 2011 to 26 and 15 in 2012. His total yardage dropped by nearly 1,000 yards, however, his passing yards per game went from a career-best 308.3 to 246.8, his lowest average since 2008. There were four games where his quarterback rating dipped below 60.0, two of those below 50.0 with his worst game being a 13-for-25, two interception stinker with a passer rating of a putrid 38.9. His rating for the season was a pedestrian 87.2. His completion percentage (59.9 percent) was his first season below 60 percent since 2007.

    After a season in which he led the Giants to the second Super Bowl title of his career, he performed in a way that once again had some people wondering exactly what to make of Manning.
    Some of the issues can be explained by the injury-plagued season suffered by Hakeem Nicks, and the season-long effort by the Giants to find a consistent replacement for Mario Manningham.

    The off-target throws and stubborn decisions, like throwing an ill-fated pass to Ramses Barden that backfired in an early-season loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, or foolishly challenging Asante Samuel of the Atlanta Falcons and getting picked off, setting the tone for a brutal 34-0 loss, are purely on Manning.
    There were ups and downs like the three-week midseason stretch without a touchdown pass, a four-touchdown game against the New Orleans Saints and a five-touchdown effort in the season finale against the Eagles." Read more...

    What the Giants -- and their fans -- would really like to see is 2013 be the beginning of a three- or four-year run where 'Bad Eli' gets shoveled so deep under some Meadowlands dirt that you forget he even exists.
    AMEN

      I honestly think those numbers point out just how important Nicks is in this offense.....Him not being on the field has a trickle down effect

        If we're to get back into the playoffs, good Eli has to show up more often than last year. Anytime your QB rating dips below 50, chances are, you're hurting your team.

            Sure does. But I don't see the defense getting much better this year. Eli needs to step it up.

              Cannot wait for 2013. Eli will not repeat the same mistakes. Hopefully the team can follow suit.

                I agree Eli has to improve from last year but it all goes hand in hand....his supporting cast on offense has to be consistent and the defense gotta stop people.

                Eli is at his best in the playoffs when something lites him up.

                  The offense will need to break records this year. He better be really good.

                        Yeah but they will probably need to score a lot and be able to control the ball when needed.

                          Points scored, TOP, and whatever other stat can be measured.

                            I am hoping we actually have complementary defensive and special teams this season that makes winning a tad easier and less stressful for my heart. Get us average field position beyond the 30, more three and outs on defense, and Stevie Brown gets 10 interceptions (while knowing where he is supposed to be on the fieldl).

                              How many points realistically do you think we should score?
