2. Better Days Coming For Eli Manning

While many once considered the Giants should move in a different direction without quarterback Eli Manning, he has proved he still has what it takes to bring major success. Granted, this season didn’t live up to its potential as a whole but Manning actually had a very good season statistically and was much improved from 2013 when it came to his interceptions and turnovers.

Manning threw for 4,410 passing yards with 30 touchdowns and 14 interceptions this year and showed signs of greatness. He continued his ironman streak of not missing a single game this season and will only get better in the future. He has proven he can master the West Coast offense as all he truly needs is more support to get the job done consistently.

With a better offensive line, pass protection and a few more offensive weapons around him, Manning should be able to enjoy a breakout season in 2015.
