Look I appreciate everything Gilbride did for us to win rings. However, it was so apparent that he became stale and predictable. Mara, who is as reserved as you can be even blared to the media that the offense was broken. In post retirement interviews, Killdrives sanctimonious and pompous, and ostensibly stubbornness showed in interviews. Hopefully we have seen the last of the 3rd and 20 draw plays.
McSdoo is part of the young breed and is apparently a workaholic and sharp. Obviously, we have yet to see things happen but we already know the oeuvre of Eli. He's talented, can throw every type of ball, knows how to audible/check, and has all the intangibles you want.
Now if McCoy changing the offense for Rivers in an almost "less is more" fashion that led to a Pro Bowl year, I expect the same results for Eli. Look, Norv Turmer was considered an offensive guru, but look what McCoy did with Rivers? Rivers didn't end with career numbers, but was more efficient and smart, and lead to more success.
I can't wait to see Eli carving the league and especially the division up in McAdoo's offense.
