I know you guys miss this man dearly. The shoulder shrugs. The blank stares given to receivers. The hand gestures and head hanging. And of course fist pumps like the image above.

If the Giants are going to go anywhere in 2015 it’s going to be on the right arm of Eli Manning. Although, the team only finished with 6 wins in 2014, Manning had his best statistical season as a pro in McAdoo’s 1st-year as offensive coordinator.

The west coast, quick trigger offense led to Manning completing more passes than ever before. While, some of his success has to be attributed to rookie phenom Odell Beckham Jr., let’s also remember he lost veteran wideout Victor Cruz for most of the year, not to mention a non-exist run game.

Heading into 2015, Manning has Cruz back, Beckham Jr. healthy from day 1, an improved offensive line, and an improved run game with the addition of Shane Vereen  who is also a pass-catcher out of the back-field. The 2nd-year in McAdoo’s offense should be yet another positive as Manning embarks on what should be a Pro Bowl 2015 season.
