New York Giants offense struggling behind atrocious offensive line

New York Giants offense struggling behind atrocious offensive line

Manning did McAdoo a favor during the week and downplayed the public criticism, even telling reporters that when McAdoo joined the Giants as offensive coordinator in 2014, Manning asked him to point out the quarterback's mistakes. Both times, they got stuffed.

These look like teams headed in entirely different directions. Their linebackers take gaps away in a hurry in the run game. This is a team that has nothing going for it, as the offensive line can't protect, the running game stinks, receivers are dropping passes, Eli looks old and the secondary gives up way too many big plays.

No, this is the time and the place for the New York Football Giants to show some pride and poise and toughness and get off the canvas and make a stand that would change the complexion of this pockmarked season.

The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles meet Sunday in National Football League action at the Lincoln Financial Field.

"I'm not sure about the rotation, but if he does go in there, I think he'll be ready", right offensive tackle Lane Johnson told reporters.

Odell Beckham Jr. should play more this week and that will open up the offense, but NY really needs a running game and with their under-performing offensive line, can't seem to produce one.

Panthers Stand For Anthem, Several Saints Sit
On Sunday, the Saints accomplished both with an impressive 34-13 win over the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium . Thomas had five catches for 50 yards on the drive, the first to produce a touchdown against the Panthers (2-1) in 2017.

2007: They opened with losses in Dallas and at home against the Packers. A big pass interference call against Apple on Torrey Smith brought the Eagles to the NY 15-yard line.

In his quest to field a heavy-handed team, coach Ben McAdoo has considered just about everything except locking his players in a meat locker and instructing them to pound slabs of beef. The next week in Washington they trailed 17-3 at the half. One guy spits the play out to the quarterback, but a lot goes into that.

The Eagles fly into this Sunday's contest versus the Giants sporting a respectable 1-1 record. This sequence likely saved the Giants season, even if it has been overdramatized a bit because the worst that could have happened was overtime.

A win over the Giants Sunday and the Eagles would be the team to beat in the division.

The Giants (0-3) hadn't scored 20 points in eight straight games before Manning led them to 21 in a span of 5:21. That set up a big Week 3 game at Carolina. This would certainly be helpful as they prepare for a huge challenge against the Kansas City Chiefs Week 4. The Giants lost their first six games and finished 7-9.

McAdoo criticized Manning for a particular play during the 24-10 loss to the Lions last week, but the Giants (0-2) have multiple issues on offense. A Zach Ertz fumble helped NY score 21 straight points to surge ahead, but the Birds responded, and then the teams traded field goals to tie the score at 24. And, once again, fortunately for the Eagles, they'll have the opportunity to pick off the struggling Giants this Sunday.
