    Eli is having a rough time trying to master McAdoo's offensive schemes. The offense looks out of
    sorts. In fact, it looks downright lost.

    Wasn't McAdoo brought in as Giant head coach because he was an offense "genius"?
    So, why isn't the Giant offense producing points?

    Eli Manning is playing like a rattled rookie and it has been that way since he took that hit in the Washington game. Frankly, after this disaster of a season is over they should look at drafting a QB.

    Eli will be 36. Newsflash. He's old. Agree. Time to seriously looking at drafting a new QB.

    Flowers shares a lot of the blame as well. It would be hard to find another LT playing the position worse. That being said Eli has performed poorly even when given time to throw.

    Another pathetic performance by the Giant offense. Yet, they beat the Rams because the Rams' O
    is worse.......if that is possible. As some fans have suggested......Eli cannot generate a TD from scrimage,
    TEs cannot block nor catch passes, OL cannot open holes for RBs or protect Eli. Too many 3 and outs
    putting enormous pressure on the Giant D. Win or lose, the Giant D is on the field much more than their O.
    This team may be 4-3 but they are nowhere near a viable playoff team though this year proves very few
    elite teams exist in the NFL. Giants still have too many holes/weaknesses to contend.
