First off I want to say that Eli Manning has gotten better and better each season under Gilbride, why mess that progession up. The Main Problem with this Offense, is every year we have a young player learning this offense because Reese chooses to let Eli's favorite targets walk each year. Nicks, Manningham, Cruz and Ballard are very young.
Every complains that Gilbride is too pass happy but under Gilbride we had some of the best rushing attacks in Giants history. Until this year our run game hasnot been good (due to Reese neglecting the OLine), but Gilbride still managed to keep some balance.
Eli has dropped back a total of 556 times to the run being called 380 times. We are dead last in running the ball....We are even lucky to even be running the ball at all.
If Baas is going to continue to be our Center, then we need to be in the Shotgun formation because his snap is the only + in his game. We have two amazing receivers in Nicks and Cruz. Cruz is breaking records and hes a playmaker...Gilbride is doing a great job finding different ways to use Cruz. Gilbride has been playing to our strengths all season long and people constantly blame him....Running the ball our of a shotgun formation is ok when u have an Offensive Line that doesnt maul a DL at the point of attack....We need to be as deceptive as we can with this Oline. I also think the Shotgun RUn has been our best running formation and we broke off some big runs and valuable two point conversions with it.
Give the man a break. Yall ran Sean Payton out of town and look how great he is now because people acted as if Kerry Collins was the greatest Qb ever. Kevin Gilbride has been a better coordinator than what people give him credit for. Did u see the Jets Coordinator who had Sanchez drop back 60 times against JPP and Tuck lol. If Reese would do his job like Acorsi had...we would be a much better team. This team needs some vocal leadership that Reese failed to produce to this day, and we need more guys who play with heart than a gym rat with a nice physique.
