This is what I think:
Eli has only known 1 offense - KG's. Eli is a natural grinder, similar to his brother. He puts in the time in the film room and even more on the practice field. The guy loves a good challenge and thrives under pressure. After 9 years of the same offense, no pressure, and just lack-luster offensive coaching, it wouldn't surrise me if he got a little bored of the scheme. Possbily finding himself studying less and losing that 'drive', that extra gut feeling that gets you excited to practice and study film.
Insert a whole new offensive system and this MVP caliber QB we all know and love could be back to his old ways: Winning. Dominating. The new system will get him pumped up, he'll have to put in more time in the film room and more time in practice. He'll be challenged - and that's a great thing for Eli. Call it what you want, but I think this shake-up is exactly what we need. Even if Eli himself doesn't see this... I think this situation I've described isn't far off.
Here's to a new offense and a new Eli. 2014 may be our year to make it back to the playoffs and set the stage for another Eli Manning SB MVP, maybe not in 2014 but it will happen with McAdoo... just in time to finish his career and ride off into the sunset with 3 rings. It can happen... I think it WILL happen. LETS GO BABY

Exactly. Sometimes its hard to put a finger on what is wrong. Change your circumstances, environment, goals.... a new challenge and sometimes you look back and say 'damn, I was just in a rut and lost that fire' This applies to a lot more things than just football.
