Giants’ new offense about ‘halfway’ done

The Giants are installing a brand new offense, which is reportedly about halfway done. It will be a mixture of the old, conventional Giant offense with newfangled, cutting edge features being infused by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo .

But head coach Tom Coughlin believes the team can also solve a lot of the “broken” offense’s problems by injecting newer, bigger players (such as free agent linemen Geoff Schwartz and John Jerry) and getting back to a balanced attack. He’s optimistic and energized.

From Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post: 

“Offensively we have to get back to Giants football,” Coughlin said. “When I say that, I mean Jerry and Geoff — big human beings in the NFC East. We weren’t very big up front last year. It’s further to run around those big guys. We’re going to have balance [between run and pass]… “I know it’s going to fire up Eli. I know he’ll be excited.”

McAdoo will bring an up-tempo, fresh approach to the offense, similar to the one he worked under in Green Bay. Much of it is designed to keep Eli’s blood pumping. Last season, the offense was slow, sluggish, limited and predictable. This year should be different.

From Tom Rock of Newsday via Twitter:

TC: “Balance has always put Eli at his very best.” Says btwn old Giants schemes and McAdoo additions, playbook in “Encyclopedia Britannica.”….says Eli will “absolutely” retain the ability to control offense at line of scrimmage as in years past.

As for managing McAdoo, who has never called plays in the NFL before, Coughlin gave an assuring statement: “He’ll have someone in his ear.”

Gasol is thirty, maybe too old for us. Time to build with youth, Carmelo no Carmelo....

The 4th pick, Hardaway Jr & Calderon to Denver for Ty Lawson & Faried with a 2rd pick. They end up with the 4th & 7th pick in the draft a solid young SG & 6 million off the books.

We end up with a stud PG & PF then make a push for Jimmy Butler, plan B is Mathews if he says no. Also explore a 2yr deal with Javale Mcgee.

pg)Lawson

sg)Butler/Mathews

sf)Melo

pf)Faried

C)Mcgee

@blackwood1 Trying to remake the NY Nuggets again eh?  No thank you


I'll take Gallo next year when he's a free agent at a home-town discount.  I know he wants to return.

Lmao you still hanging on to that Gallo waste huh? But that aside Faried alone (he never played with Melo) is better then anyone you named as is Ty. Ty is a top PG in this league & Faried is a rebounding & defensive machine at PF, both in there prime (mid 20's) & Jimmy Butler well I hope I would not need to explain how good he is. That rotation is as good if not better then most in the league 1 throught 5.

Most of the guys you picked are injury plagued, do you really want to stick the team with players who hardly play? Did we learn nothing about going after injury prone players after the Amare disaster?

@blackwood1 good luck swinging that deal in fantasy league jerky

Ah you insult people who disagree with you must of voted for deblasio huh? Lol grow up if you cant debate in a civil manner about something as simple as this subject then you really need to get back to yoga class with the rest of your elitist hipster brethren.

Logic & civility you should look them up.

So on the basis of asking Beno Urggggh during the playoffs they are losing if his teammate will go to NY (which Beno Urgggh hates) and the GM of the team trying to keep one of his better players ..where is there hard information that NY should "not even try" to woo Gasol here? 

This seems like "collect a lot of blog opinions and fashion a more bad news" blog meme.

We've got seven weeks until the draft better mete these out carefully.

Frankly I wasn't all that wowed by Gasol in watching him during the Warriors series. He should have done a lot more than he did. His brother is a better player.

gasol isn't leaving and knicks have no big man again. team is desperate to trade their pick but they will not have a lot of offers for it. no number one pick next year the team has a desolate future and present.

GIANTS ON THE KNICKS BOARD AGAIN?  THIS IS AN ENDEMIC PROBLEM ON SNY BOARDS. SOMEONE SHOULD FIX IT ALREADY (NOT EMBARRASSED ENOUGH?) THEN BE FIRED!!!

"The Giants are installing a brand new offense, which is reportedly about halfway done. It will be a mixture of the old, conventional Giant offense with newfangled, cutting edge features being infused by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo ."

Does this opening paragraph suggest that the Giants might draft Eric Ebron or Austin-Seferian Jenkins (newfangled, cutting edge features) or perhaps Troy NIklas or C.J Fiedorowic (old, conventional Giant offense). I think all will be solid NFL TE's. Ebron comes with more hype and possible more potential. Based on all the film I've seen on Ebron, he is most  dangerous between the 20 yard lines ( in the middle of the field). Niklas is more effective in the red zone (big target), Fiedorowich more of a possession TE (like Kevin Boss) and Jenkins is a mixture of both, but inconsistent. it's going to be a very tough decision for Reese to make when it comes time to select a TE.

@Michael Stewart  ....  Reese might not even address the TE position this year. Even if he did, it would likely be 2nd round or beyond, and the Giants would rarely utilize the rookie, no thanks to Coughlin. I think it's just as likely the Giants beef up on all their other weak areas, and worry about TE next year, since they have always under utilized the position. Just because McAdoo is here, doesn't mean they are going to accommodate his desire for a better TE. They're likely going to stick McAdoo with Adrien Robinson come hell or high water and tell him to make it work.

@Michael Stewart

 I agree with you that the Giants will most likely not draft a TE in the 1st round. But I do believe they are going to draft a TE in this years draft, based on 2 reasons:

1. Its a deep draft for TE

2. Robinson and Donnell are unproven

I believe rounds 2-4 could be where they select a TE

Here we go again.  Bigger in not necessarily better.  This O-line needs to perform, not break scales.

If nothing else, it'll give us all a reason to watch the pre-season games.  I'm very interested to see this "new" offense.

@Michael Frias I wonder how much of the new offense the Giants will show in preseason though. They may want to keep it under wraps to better utilize the element of surprise during the regular season.

Brian Webster

@hashburry @Michael Frias Obviously the Giants won't be reinventing the wheel. However as long as there are plays the Giants haven't previously been using the element of surprise can still be there for the opposition. I've seen it countless times in the comment section fans saying they could predict almost every time what play was upcoming last season. So if fans could do that certainly opposing coaches and players who were being paid to do so could.

The "surprise" element will only las a couple of games. I would much rather then be fully versed by utilizing the preseason to master the offense. With that being Sao, no team shows a ton of their playbooj during the preseason.

Just add a little Mik Evans, and I will be just as excited.
