Ben McAdoo asked Eli to throw a lot. In 8 games, Manning tossed the ball 40 or more times and only won twice. I love passing as much as the next run ‘n’ gunner, but there has to be some balance. It’s tough to do when you’re down by multiple scores, but with an improved defense that gets off the field on third down, there should be more rushing attempts to eat some clock and give the D a chance to breathe. It’s nuts to see only 3 fumbles from receivers, especially the way Odell holds the rock. Just another testament to the strength of his hands.
