EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – After three miserable plays in Tom Coughlin's so-called 'green-zone,' New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo let out his frustration at practice Monday.
The wording was something like 'make a play,' with a sharper word included for emphasis.
With two weeks left until the regular-season opener in Detroit on Sept. 8, the Giants' new offense is struggling, and two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning does not look comfortable.
In the last three preseason games, the first-team offense has scored two touchdowns, one on a 73-yard run by Rashad Jennings and the other on Friday night in an impressive two-minute drill.
The rest of the time has been pretty brutal, marred by penalties, sacks and few yards gained.
