4. He Becomes A Master Of Ben McAdoo’s Offense
Manning needed a change in offensive systems and Ben McAdoo was just what the doctor ordered. Manning is the perfect quarterback for Ben McAdoo’s first job as an offensive coordinator. That being said the first year of something is never the best. Look at the television show Parks and Recreation; the great ensemble didn’t hit their stride until half way through the second season. I don’t care if it’s television or football the first time is never the best.
The Giants offense was pretty prolific last season and it is only going to be better this year. Manning loves the structure of the offense. He masterfully goes through his progression in this west coast offense and quickly strikes, hitting playmakers in the open field.
Manning goes into this season knowing what to expect. He goes into the season understanding the finer nuances of the offense. He will have an even greater command of McAdoo’s offense.
