Eli Manning is ready to have the best year of his career. 2014 was his first season in Ben McAdoo’s offense and he put up over 4,000 yards and 30 touchdown passes. On a 6-10 team, with problems left and right, Manning played phenomenal football. The New York Giants will be better in 2015 and Manning’s statistics will soar to new heights.
The Giants struggled to run the football in 2014 and pass protection was not exactly a strength. If the Giants young but talented offensive line can remain healthy, it will perform much better in 2015. The Giants having Geoff Schwartz back will have a huge impact.

The west coast offense and Manning is the perfect marriage. The quick release passing game keeps Manning in a rhythm which eliminates most of the boneheaded plays. The offense takes advantage of Manning’s accuracy and high football IQ, as he needs to hit his receivers in such a way that they can run for yards after the catch.
Speaking of receivers, Victor Cruz back to his superstar form will behoove the offense greatly. If you thought that Odell Beckham Jr. was impressive in his rookie season, just imagine what he’ll do in year two paired with Cruz. The addition of Shane Vereen adds a receiving threat from the backfield.
What Manning did last season was nothing short of spectacular, and it’s not just because he did it in the face of all the Giants problems. It was amazing because McAdoo’s offense was so much different from the offense Manning had run for years under offensive coordinator, Kevin Gilbride.
With a second year in McAdoo’s offensive system and with the players missing last year in the starting lineup, Manning will have the best season of his career.
