New York Giants are on an upward curve. Eli Manning is getting used to his new and up and coming offense. Last year Manning had one of his better years thanks to star rookie Odell Beckham Jr, and fans in New York will expect more of the same during the 2015 NFL season.
One part of the Giants' offense, Rashad Jennings, says that he expects the blue side of New York to have one of the best offenses in the upcoming NFL season.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning has struggled at times during his career, but last year he found rhythm, and Jennings believes this is something that will continue this year.
“I think we’re going to have a dominant offense,” Jennings said, ProFootballTalk reported. “Eli is really comfortable in the offense now — being able to control a lot from the line of scrimmage.”
Jennings own position at the Giants may come under threat this year after the signing of former Patriots running back Shane Vereen, but right now Jennings doesn't fear the extra challenge of having Vereen open board.
“It’s going to be big,” Jennings said. “Any time you can add depth at any position, any room, it’s valuable. He’s a guy that’s been on a team that knows the recipe of winning. We extract from that. We’ll be able to add. Also, he’s a great catcher from the backfield. So that’s going to entice the coordinator to throw to the running backs more. So I’m happy with that. He’s a good player and from everything I understand he’s a good teammate. I’m glad to have him aboard.”
Though Jennings might not be worried about the prospect of battling with Vereen for the starting running back job, head coach Tom Coughlin's comments may make the tailback uncomfortable about how many minutes he will get during the 2015 NFL season.
"I see him in that regard as a pass receiver coming out of the backfield, a pass protector, a guy who runs the ball in the three-wide offense in the run game, if you will, which is very prevalent today in our sport," Coughlin explained, speaking of Vereen, NFL.com reported.
